Today's Home: Bay Pointe

An eBay purchase drove Chris and Deanne Looper to build their three-bedroom home in Bay Pointe.

“My husband bought a pool table on eBay, and the last house we lived in, it was like there’s just no room for this pool table. Well, we’re going to have to build something, I guess,” Deanne Looper said with a laugh, as though the decision was a no-brainer.

The couple completed the 3,600-square-foot house in 2003, and put the pool table in the game room above the garage.

In addition to the table, a full bathroom and a bar, the room boasts a 1975 jukebox with records by artists such as Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash.

The fleur de lis is a theme throughout the home. Hand- painted versions welcome visitors above the front door and grace the wall above the dining room entryway.

Red is prominent throughout the home, though the Clemson fan in the family is quick to point out that she is particular about the shade.

“I like red, but not a Georgia Bulldog red,” Deanne said.
