A young family's riverside home in Savannah merges relaxed outdoor living with traditional Low Country elegance.
This home on the banks of the Skidaway River, a branch of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, was built in the 1820s as the caretaker's cottage of an antebellum plantation. A decade ago, the McGaugheys bought the house, and they recently restored the exterior to its original appearance.
The living room reflects the McGaugheys' taste for mixing traditional and contemporary styles. The original wainscoting was treated with several coats of paint for a lustrous finish. The sectional sofa, which is upholstered in Belgian linen, combines a modern silhouette with the antique touch of a brass nail-head trim.
