Today's Home: Preserve at Longpoint

THE PRESERVE AT LONGPOINT

To own or not to own was the question for Todd Hignite a little more than a year ago.

“I had never lived in Augusta,” said Hignite, who moved to the area from Charlotte, N.C. because of a career change in November 2010.

He visited one weekend looking for a place to live that was convenient to his job. By chance, he turned into The Preserve at Longpoint, a townhouse community off Old Waynesboro Road. It was the end of the day on a Saturday, and the only person on the site was one of the construction contractors, who let Hignite look around. He liked what he saw.

Hignite’s new space was smaller than the one he had in Charlotte, so he came up with some creative ideas to utilize it to its full potential.

He put his bedroom furniture in the smaller of the two bedrooms and uses the master bedroom as a den.

Hignite has a lot of original artwork and a collection of Waterford crystal and Murano glass, which is in the living room.

His artwork fits in with his overall Asian theme.

A hand-painted screen that belonged to his family sparked the theme.

In the spring and summer, his backyard teems with flowering plants and herbs.
