Piney Point Estate – Simplicity is the Ultimate Sophistication

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
– Leonardo da Vinci

Over the years, I’ve discovered that the most powerful moments within a home often present themselves through negative space. Rather than fill rooms with countless things, we should select treasures thoughtfully and then offer those treasures the freedom required to tell their story. Today, we’re highlighting a home that expertly captures the sentiment above. Although you may have seen a few of these spaces in previous features, we’re thrilled to be taking you on a personal tour, sharing exclusive details about this Piney Point estate along with a selection of never-before-seen photos! Enjoy!

Arrive

An open, airy entry guides you into the home’s formal lounge where clean, streamlined furnishings are surrounded by Alabaster (Sherwin Williams) coated walls. Together, they balance textural nature-inspired elements like steel doors, limestone flooring, and hemlock beams.

Entertain

A natural stone wall and rough-hewn wood ceiling boast raw beauty in the formal dining space which is directly connected to the kitchen through a butler’s pantry, making entertaining a breeze.

Blue velvet dining chairs and a bold piece of contemporary art steal the show with a vibrant color palette that stands strong against the organic colors and textures that surround.

A magnificent selenite chandelier ushers in another bold use of texture.

Natural stone continues through the wine room that houses the family’s curated collection and we love how the custom steel wine racks give the illusion that all of the bottles are floating!

Live

With ample space for family and visiting friends, the kitchen and surrounding living spaces are prime examples of beauty that is both stylish and practical.

Breakfast Nook

The sun-drenched breakfast nook is home to an oversized Cantoni dining table and soft leather chairs that ensure morning meals and casual dinners are as comfortable as they are entertaining.

Nestled between the living room, dining space, and butler’s pantry, the kitchen is located in the center of all the action which makes cooking and entertaining a breeze. Calacatta marble with a waterfall edge creates stylish work surfaces and premier appliances are built in to custom rift cut oak paneling, allowing counter space to remain uncluttered.

Vent hood: Custom-crafted from hammered steel
Bar Stools: Cantoni Lez Bar Stools in a low-back profile tuck neatly under the island to keep pathways clear.

The family room is comfy and highly livable with a sprawling sectional, leather chair and plush Madison Lily rug.

Work

A well-designed office makes tackling that to-do list so much more fun! We opted for a soothing neutral color palette and backed the built-in shelves with reclaimed oak. Distinctive trim details ensure the space feels tailored and playfully unexpected.

Unwind

The goal with any master bedroom is for it to feel like a warm, inviting escape from the outside world. Here, a vaulted reclaimed oak ceiling, vintage travertine fireplace, and charcoal velvet bed make you feel as though you just stepped into a luxury resort.Chandelier: Low Country Originals Laurel Bay All Crystal Chandelier

A cozy little reading nook nestled between massive windows creates a quiet moment where you can relax and unwind.

Sheer drapery softens streamlined finishes while a monotone color story ensures this spa-inspired master bath feels fresh, clean, and serene.

Prepare

The master bath leads into boutique-style his-and-hers wardrobes spacious enough for any budding shopaholic:

Play

We couldn’t possibly leave you without sharing this amazing space dedicated to outdoor entertaining! Nearly every room in the house offers up gorgeous views of the estate’s rambling patio, and we were determined to have the exterior spaces feel just as special as the ones that lie within.

The vaulted reclaimed oak ceilings continue, this time looking down on a handsome stone fireplace and concrete dining table. It’s a union of texture-rich sophistication and durability that we can’t get enough of!

Bidding Farewell

Stucco Exterior Home

We took this photo of the home’s exterior before the landscaping was complete but you can see the grand stage it sets. A soothing color palette is balanced by dramatic cast stone details, a slate roof, and steel doors and windows.

That’s it for now, friends! We hope you enjoyed the tour – drop us a line with any unanswered design questions you may have below and we’ll do our best to answer them. Wishing you a beautiful week!
