Kiawah Residents Open their Homes to the Gibbes

Kiawah Art & House Tour

Influenced by the British Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th century is a lovely stucco cottage at the Cassique golf resort on Kiawah Island. A central garden courtyard graced by a fountain with sculptured herons greets visitors as they approach the home. The home is designed in an “H” shape with rooms looking out on the courtyard and lagoon. Sunlight from the garden filters throughout the many windows of the gallery entrance. An English cottage ambience is carried throughout the interior of the home with a decorative theme of blue and white, and a beautiful collection of chinoiserie. The owner’s art and antique doorstop collections are just two of the highlights of this elegant and welcoming home.
