Interior remodel of an outdated Sea Pines Villa completely transforms the space into a dream getaway

When these semi-retired owners of a Beachside Tennis Villa hired Group 3 Designs for their renovation architecture and interior design, they had two goals in mind: modernizing the space and taking advantage of the stunning views. This oceanfront condo was outdated and lacked a luxury feel. With simple updates to the floorplan, enhanced finishes, new cabinetry and furnishings, the new open-air updated condo was a dream come true for these owners and their guests.
Let there be light (and space)
Group 3 transformed the dark and cramped kitchen by opening it up to the rest of the living space. Incorporating a peninsula island maximized storage while gaining additional seating. A custom bench seat was built-in to create a cozy lounge spot, capitalizing on the view.
Come together, right now
The living room did not need much structural change, but rather, a face lift. Adding new furniture, artwork, and lighting allowed this design to make the room feel much bigger than before. A modern fireplace and large screen TV make the condo feel comfortable all year round.
Revamping an existing vanity with freshly painted cabinets, new countertops, and plumbing fixtures revitalized the guest bathroom. The Spricher floor covering (available at Pyramids Hilton Head) is a fun, durable way to add color and design to a room without getting moldy or being hard to clean.
Plantation shutters were added to existing windows allowing for a perfect combination of natural light and privacy when needed, while maintaining the view of the ocean. New bedding featuring layered textures and pops of color offers a luxury feel.
Shiplap ceilings and exposed beams add a coastal custom home touch. An existing wall between the entry and kitchen was partly removed and partly angled away, opening the whole space and view as one enters the villa.
