Posted: June 25, 2017 at 12:00 AM by Rod Smith

Arguably, unique homes upraise your everyday experience and make life enjoyable. Whether you want to live in a lighthouse, with an ice-cream parlor in the living room or just enjoying a wedding chapel in the backyard, you have unlimited options in South Carolina. There is a myriad of exceptional homes in the region, but which among them stands out? Here are some of the standout spots.


1. Eye of the Storm, Sullivan's Island

Eye of the Storm, Sullivan's Island

The Eye of the Storm is the prolate ellipse that measures 80’ × 57 '×34’. It has four levels that offer 3500 sq. feet plus unique outside porches. Although the home is built in a hurricane-prone area, the designer included an eye ground level with large openings that you can drive through. Moreover, the ground level of this home offers a massive storage and packing, two stairways, and an elevator that goes to the other floors (the second and third floors). Its unmatched fireplace, living room, entertainment, dining, and generous bathrooms, adds its uniqueness and charm.

You will love the shower room in the house’s master bath as it is built to resemble a snail, and in the most winding fashion. The winding walk offers unparalleled privacy, so you don’t need a shower door or a curtain which promotes mildew. The resting benches are also great additions.


How about an afternoon nap? There is an outstanding balcony outside the master bedroom, with an inviting hammock. It is definitely a one of a kind solution to recurring hurricanes.
