What craftsmanship means at Saussy Burbank Charleston
From foundation to fixtures, homes built by Saussy Burbank reflect the rich architectural heritage of the areas in which we build. That means a home built in Nims Village takes cues from Fort Mill’s historic cottages and bungalows. A home built in Claremont feels in line with the special character of Chapel Hill. And it means that a home built in Charleston fits effortlessly into the greater context of the lowcountry.
Built for lowcountry living…
Our homes feel like they’ve always been a part of the historic landscape of Charleston. It’s something that just feels right to us at Saussy Burbank, but it doesn’t mean it happens without considerable time and dedication.
Designing a new home to fit perfectly into a setting as storied and celebrated as Charleston requires an exceptional attention to detail. Like choosing the perfect shade of “haint blue” for a south-facing porch ceiling. Including deep eaves to reduce direct sunlight – and therefore excessive heat – indoors. And positioning overhangs to provide livable outdoor space that works year-round, something that’s particularly appealing in the Charleston region.
It also requires a talented, experienced team. We could brag on our exceptionally gifted group of architects, designers, and builders, but we’d rather you hear it from those that know our work best: our homeowners. You can read more than 3,500 reviews of our work collected via a third-party survey during and after the home buying process. We are proud to have been honored with the Guildmaster Award, the organization’s highest honor for customer satisfaction, every year since 2011.
We’ve also been recognized by the experts for our design chops, securing awards from organizations like Best in American Living, Professional Builder, and the American Society of Interior Designers.
…and for modern life
Our goal is to design homes contextual to the Charleston region that are also perfectly crafted for modern living.
That means using environmentally sustainable building materials and practices, like Low-E windows, radiant barrier roof sheathing, and low-flow fixtures. These are practices that are easier on the environment and also result in a home that’s more energy efficient – something that’s easy on the wallet, too.
A home built for modern living is also equipped with top notch technology. Home automation devices like programmable thermostats and smart appliances won’t be throttled by outdated tech in your Saussy Burbank home. And in communities like Nexton, homes are hard-wired for gigabit internet speeds, so everything from streaming the latest Netflix series to video conferencing from your home office are a breeze.
Building a new home that fits to perfectly into a historic cityscape and addresses all the requirements of modern life demands an extraordinary attention to detail. It requires extra time and care. And it takes talent. All this adds up to a home that doesn’t just fit into a community – it enhances it.
