|South Main's First Courtyard Home|
|Articles - Design|
South Main Building Company has just broken ground on our first courtyard home, a Kenny Craft masterpiece which will incorporate South Main’s most sizeable private outdoor space to date. Located on South Main's northern boundary, it is inspired by the courtyard homes of Alys Beach, which in turn are based on the urban courtyard homes of Spanish colonial cities like Antigua, Guatemala. While the courtyard home type is inspired by patterns from warmer climates, according to Craft stylistic elements such as bow spring arches, vertical two-over-two windows, steel pipe columns, bay windows, and metal roofs all tie the design in with the Victorian-inspired South Main style. A dual-sided fireplace will provide warmth to both the great room and the courtyard, further customizing this courtyard home to our mountain climate. Click here to view a schematic of the site plan.
We are excited by the innovative nature of this design, and we want you to know that we have one lot remaining in phase one- 700 Buzz Boulevard- that would be an ideal location for a similar design. "You could almost take a mirror image of this site plan and place it on 700 Buzz Boulevard," says Kenny. "It’s a good size house on a large lot, but it breaks down to look like two houses. The street side is the small side, and a similar concept would work well on Buzz." A south-facing courtyard could also work well on the Buzz Boulevard lot, according to Kenny.
