Coined the “Artist Cottage,” this cute cottage is the home of the 2017 Palmetto Bluff Artist in Residence program, which welcomes a different artisan each month of the year for 2-week residencies.

This 1,955-square-foot cottage is situated in Palmetto Bluff’s second village, Moreland, and was designed with a fresh take on the Lowcountry architectural aesthetic — creating rooms that are inviting, interesting, inspiring and unpretentious. Shoreline Construction Group and the Court Atkins Group created a space that is decidedly contemporary through the use of unique architectural elements and furnishings.

With 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, this residence features natural blonde oak floors, white painted nickel jointwood walls, brick and open trusses. Nestled behind the brick fireplace, the kitchen features Wolf appliances, Smithport custom cabinetry and Caesarstone Fresh Concrete countertops. A generous master suite is located on the 1st floor, with a guest suite on the 2nd floor.

There is ample outdoor living space to enjoy the lush natural landscape that surrounds Moreland Village. Guests are greeted with a welcoming front porch covered with a trellis, and the fenced-in backyard features a screened-in porch for additional dining and a firepit. There is also a carport that can double as a workshop.

Artist Cottage, located at 753 Old Moreland Road, welcomes a new artisan each month of the year — allowing homeowners, resort guests and locals the opportunity to interact and create alongside the makers. The visiting artists — including everyone from banjo and wooden paddle board makers to creamery and cocktail connoisseurs — will host interactive workshops, classes and open studio hours.

Artist Cottage is priced at $1,285,000.
