The Zantzinger family’s weekend home on the West River was inspired by South Carolina’s Middleburg farmhouse just outside of Charleston, built in 1690 by the French rice planter Huguenot. It is a testament to what can be created when the balance between building and design are in perfect harmony. Every proportion and all materials are intentional and well considered. The chimneys, foundation, and mudroom were crafted with one-hundred-year-old reclaimed bricks and the wide plank floors are made from fumed oak, reminiscent of an old barn floor.
