Low Country House Plans and Floor Plans | Don Gardner

Low Country Home Plans

The low country style originated in the coastal areas of the Southern United States. Southern architecture with a coastal flair characterizes this style, which is popular with many of today's homebuyers. Whether buying for a home in the South or looking for Southern charm for a Northern property, low country home plans from Donald A. Gardner Architects will capture exactly what you need.

Southern-Inspired Low Country Home Plans

Low country home plans feature expansive outdoor living spaces with covered porches, open floor plans and a feeling of relaxed elegance. Low country home plans with porches typically have a simple rectangular layout with a central entrance that leads to a very traditional floor plan, but some have evolved into a more open design. A large, often wraparound porch, is the focal point of the exterior, while the interior has architectural elements like French doors, elegant staircases and crown molding. These are the quintessential Southern estate home features, yet come in floor plans of all shapes and sizes. If you are searching for low country home plans that exude charm, Donald A. Gardner Architects has a selection of plans to make it even easier to find the floor plan of your dreams. Perfect for your new vacation home or a primary residence that makes you feel like you're on vacation, our low country cottage house plans capture the essence of Southern charm. Our Hollyhock plan is a favorite among our low country floor plans, and it showcases the sophistication and charm of this home style with its wrapping front and back porches. This 2,661-square-foot home has four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms, with a large kitchen that has an island to provide additional workspace and seating. The master suite is conveniently located on the main floor and features back porch access.
