A Little Lowndes Grove Love

First of all, thanks to everyone who came out for the 4th Annual Sustainable Seafood Festival. We had a great time and will soon have the photos to prove it, so stay tuned.

Now, onto the newest member of the PP family. As you may already know, this summer we purchased Lowndes Grove, the peninsula's last great waterfront estate and oldest surviving plantation. Nestled on 14 acres along the banks of the Ashley River, the property includes a 6,800-square-foot home circa1786, a carriage house, river house, a swimming pool and a dock. Nice, right?

It gets better. After taking a strategic look at the property, we discovered ways to make better use of both of the grounds and the structures. During the next two "off-seasons," we'll be working to return the estate to its original splendor. Which is a whole lot easier with the help of people like Glenn Keyes Architects, interior designer Paula Adams and landscape designer Sheila Wertimer. Plus, it doesn't hurt that we're working with really cool stuff like Georgian and Regency style architecture, sweeping piazzas, arched porticos and a pristine black cypress exterior.

While we're at it, here's a sneek peek from our recent photo shoot. The fine dresses are courtesy of our friends at Maddison Row. Special thanks to our fantastic models and the talented Taylor Stewart.
