If there’s one thing I don’t grow tired of in this position as “curator of all things Lowcountry,” it’s the endless opportunities to photograph and tour some grand estates in our area. This month’s special section is Real Estate, and we’re taking you behind the gates of Sea Pines to tour not one, but two lovely waterfront homes that recently hit the market.
The first is featured on our CH2 cover and boasts panoramic views of Calibogue Sound and Buck Island from almost every room. Dunes Real Estate agent Jeff Hunt was kind enough to contact the owner and ask if we could shoot our fall fashion spread at their lovely home. See page 42 to get a peek at all the unique features this property has to offer and a hint at what’s trending in clothing this month as we transition from 80-degree days to 65 and below.
The next property featured in this issue is situated on eight acres, down a private gravel road, near the South Beach side of Sea Pines. 50 Marsh Point played host to our Everything Pumpkin photoshoot with Chef Lynn Michelle and Cassandra Shultz of Cassandra’s Kitchen. This massive enclave was recently updated by architect Neil Gordan and interior designer Kelly Caron. Check out page 66 for one of the most beautiful homes I’ve ever had the pleasure to photograph.
Oldfield was the subject of Cheryl Ricer’s recurring column Neighborhood Stroll, and in addition to learning what makes this community so special, we got a tour of the Lowther’s beautiful new build, courtesy of H2 Builders. I always enjoy soaking in not only the overall style of a home, but the personal touches that speak to the homeowners’ passions, hobbies or sentimental keepsakes. Jessica Lowther’s interior design choices were unique and memorable. Be sure to follow us on social media for video content of every property featured this month.
November always includes our Gift Guide for Him, and this issue features men’s fashion modeled by Jevon Daly.
We kick off the issue with info on some of the most popular Lowcountry happenings this month like the Island Rec Center’s Oyster Festival and what’s quickly becoming my favorite island event—the Lantern Parade. The CH2 crew will be there on November 18 to cover it. Come say hello if you see us!
Wishing you and yours a very happy Thanksgiving. Remember to be grateful this holiday season, and if you forgot how, Sheila Tucker offers inspiration on page 117.
Until next month!
