Check out this extensive renovation of an oceanfront home in Sea Pines Plantation

Renovation architecture by Group 3 Designs + Photography by John McManus

The word “grand” doesn’t do this towering oceanfront home justice. These home owners just completed a two-year renovation that included flipping the dining room into the kitchen, making the kitchen the dining room, adding a wet bar, redesigning the main living space, updating the second kitchen and completely updating the master suite. The result is a space that is fully optimized and updated for 2020 and beyond. Group 3 Designs shares project highlights.


Before

The heavy wood paneling in the great room and dated drapes needed a full update. The room was transformed with Group 3 Design’s interior team to modernize the space.


Before

What was previously the dining room became a deluxe chef’s kitchen. The homeowners wanted to maximize their view of the ocean and the golf course.


Before

What was previously the kitchen became the dining room with updated fixtures, new lighting, and built-ins for china displays and storage.


 The master suite was redesigned to pop out and give the owners more space. It also added architectural interest.


The downstairs, secondary kitchen was completely renovated to include top-notch appliances and a design refresh.
