Revisiting The Doory Awards 2012: Best Beach Home
It's a lovely day here at the Cool Houses Daily headquarters – the perfect day to imagine ourselves lounging on the porch of this Craftsman-inspired coastal home in South Carolina. Last year, this gorgeous residence earned the most votes in the Beach Homes category of The Doory Awards, FrontDoor's celebration of America's most outstanding homes for sale.

Nestled in a private landscape of palm trees, this coastal hideaway on Isle of Palms is wrapped in cedar shake siding, a metal roof and large windows overlooking peaceful marsh surroundings. As you enter the home, a grand foyer ushers you into the sun-drenched living area, where there's a marble-surrounded fireplace and French doors. The open gourmet kitchen is close by, as is the first-floor master suite and numerous places to access the covered porches, infinity pool and spa.
