Strong Style

Crisp white shake siding with contrasting black trim gives this approximately 3,200-square-foot three-bedroom, three-bath home in St. Simons Island, Georgia a strong presence and pleasing curb appeal.

Defined Front Entry

Columns on each side mark the home's welcoming front entrance, and fit with the Southern transitional style of this one-of-a-kind coastal getaway.

Impressive Arrival

Two tall and darkly stained double doors greet guests when they arrive at the front entry of the home, which transitions right into the stylish foyer that sets the tone for the updated interiors.

Handsome Handles

The large oil-rubbed bronze handles mimic the clean lines of the impressive double doors that lead inside.

Elegant Urn Planters

Two black urn planters made of a blend of stone and high performance resin on each side of the double front doors offer a chance to add greenery.

Color Contrast

Just like the exterior of the home, the eye-catching pavers on the steps up to the front entry have a contrast of dark and light.

Aluminum Roof

To fit with the current architectural look of the area, the home now has an unpainted aluminum roof that complements the new shake siding.

Attention to Detail

Like the rest of the home's trim, the eaves and gutters are also painted black for a consistent look and strong contrast for the white shake siding.

Striking Shutters

The home's dark painted wood louver shutters and the black window trim pop against the surrounding white shake siding.

Tranquil Setting

Situated among existing trees with new landscaping added, the updated home seamlessly blends with the beautiful and lush natural surroundings.

Harmonious Look

The new architectural details and updates help the home and attached garage create a cohesive look.

Retro Lights

Two black flush-mount light fixtures with a bit of retro style on the front of the garage provide illumination for the front yard.

Smart Symmetry

This view looking towards the side of the garage shows how the architectural details on the garage take design cues from the main structure.

Wonderful Walkways

Two walkways with durable pavers that have a natural yet elegant look connect the front part of the property to the scenic backyard.

Quiet Time

The walkways surrounded by lush trees and plants connect outdoor spaces but also offer a chance for a quiet stroll.

Terrific Trees

The live oak trees with Spanish moss in the front yard and around the property provide shade and naturally frame the scenic location.

Color and Beauty

A selection of flowers and blooming plants add color, texture and cheerful beauty to the welcoming front yard.

Curved Driveway

The curved design of the new driveway with strong pavers that offer the appearance of weathered clay brick incorporates landscaping and creates an impressive welcome for visitors.

Peace of Mind

The home's easy-to-install security system uses wireless technology with keypads, entry and motion sensors, camera and more to give homeowners peace of mind.

Durable Driveway

Durable pavers with a natural yet elegant look add pattern and texture to the new eye-catching driveway that greats guests when they arrive at this waterfront escape.

Polished Look

The white color on the shake siding was baked on, while the trim details were painted black to create the strong contrast that gives this home a finished and polished look.
