Kim Rogers said of all the homes her family has lived in, the one they built two years ago on River Oak Drive is her favorite.

(Emily Rose Bennett/Staff) Steve and Kimberly Rogers, along with their son Matt, pose for a portrait in their favorite room, a deck overlooking the Savannah River.

The floor-to-ceiling windows in the great room offer breathtaking views of the Savannah River just below the rapids.

“I said when I’m standing in my kitchen or my living room, I don’t want to see any land. I just want to see water,” Rogers said.

Kim and her husband, Steve, spend a lot of time on the back porch, which overlooks the river.

A similar view can be enjoyed from the master bedroom, which is on the main floor. It features wood paneled walls that have been painted to resemble driftwood.

Indoors, they escape to the “man cave” upstairs, which features a bedroom, full bath, and a sitting area with its own kitchenette and three televisions.

When guests visit, it’s
the ideal “apartment” for them.

The couple love to entertain, and often open their home for church functions, ministry meetings, youth groups and holiday parties.

It’s a fact: The home was built by Darrell Jeffcoat, who installed much of the woodwork himself, including dual bookshelves in the study and the paneling in the master bedroom.
