Christy and Greg Martin find themselves facing a challenge in their new home in Grenelefe Park in Grovetown.
They have a lot more space than they’re used to.
The couple moved from a two-bedroom townhome only a month ago and are still working to make their 2,600-square-foot seaside cottage their own.
Christy said several things sold them on the house. She loves the architectural details, such as the travertine backsplash behind the stove that looks like a wide basketweave, and the fireplace that opens to both the kitchen and the living room.
“And I love the (transom) windows that have kind of the old-timey feel,” she said.
Upstairs are two bedrooms connected by a Jack-and-Jill bathroom and the bonus room. The bonus room’s big windows overlook the subdivision.
“It’s a beautiful room. We’re going to put some furniture up here and kind of make it like a movie/game room,” she said.
Christy’s favorite room, however, is the screened porch. It features a stone fireplace and has connections for a television, if they decide to put one there.
One thing she loves about Grenelefe Park is that each house has its own character.
A stamped-concrete porch spans the front of the house, which is unusual on Christy’s street.
