Along the coastline of South Carolina and Georgia is a formidable region brimming with homes rich in history and culture. Affectionately known as the Lowcountry, residents live below sea level, but their homes rest on a reputation of splendor and style.

    Great post! I'm a huge fan of the low country. We vacation annually in Isle of Palms (Charleston, SC). GDC Home is a great store to get the "low country look". Have a great weekend! Lisa

    I've always loved low country home plans and interior design. I dream of a home with a big front porch because of it. This region is one of my favorite areas of the South.
