Designed to be enjoyed by multiple families as a second home, English Angel celebrates the traditional detail-oriented English Arts and Crafts style while incorporating a program fit for a contemporary lifestyle. Appropriately located in Cassique, South Carolina, this 4,900 square foot house draws from the most influential English architects of the early 20th century. It contains three identical master suites accompanied by three bedrooms, for a total of six bedrooms and 6 baths.
Attention to detail is evident in the craftsmanship throughout the house, with continuous wood trim, subtle arched openings and interior transom windows. A pair of matching staircases separates the two upper master suites, trimmed with custom balusters. The bold stucco massing and steep roof pitches command its presence on the golf course-directed lot, while flared roof lines and various detailed openings articulate the form.
Inside, neutral colored walls accentuate the richly stained woodwork. The timber trusses and the intersecting peak and arch ceiling open the living room to form a dynamic gathering space. Stained glass reminiscent of Charles Rennie Mackintosh connects the kitchen and dining room. The open floor plan allows abundant light and views to the exterior, and also provides a sense of connection and functionality.
English Angel stands proud as a unique work of art, pushing for crafts and workmanship while successfully capturing the spirit of the 20th Century, the English style and the charm of the South.
