2022 Southern Living Idea House

We’re pleased to be an official sponsor of the 2022 Idea House located in the River Dunes community in coastal North Carolina. Centered around the concept of ‘The Great Escape,’ this year’s Idea House takes its inspiration from the laid-back charm of the Carolina coast. The home consists of multiple structures, a design that works for modern families who need comfort and style, as well as the flexibility of distinct spaces for Zoom calls or family gatherings. Beyond the kitchen the use of appliances throughout provides luxurious conveniences for a modern lifestyle including wellness routines and special occasions. Located directly across from the harbor (with water views), the house will be approximately 4,125 square feet, with extensive wraparound porches and outdoor living spaces that are ideal for entertaining.

From July through December the home will be open for public tours. You’ll also be able to see photographs of the home featured in the October issue of Southern Living.
