Welcome to The Fig House! We hope you love this house as much as we do. The way we live and travel with friends is the inspiration for the interior and exterior design of this house.
The Fig House is a newly renovated mid-century modern located in the Kelvin Grove neighborhood next to Bloody Marsh. Clean lines, open living floor plan and carefully designed outdoor living spaces make this house a one of a kind for the area. Follow the house on instagram @thefighousessi for more photos!
Living Room/Dining Room:
The living room is designed to entertain a group of adults or perfect for kids. With two sofas, two club chairs, a window bench seat and a wood burning fireplace, it is the perfect place to entertain, watch a movie, or cozy up and read a book. The dining area connects the living and kitchen and seats 8. A large window faces one of the most amazing live oaks on the island. Plenty of natural light fills this space.
The kitchen is spacious with clean lines and is connected to the sunroom and the sitting room. A small breakfast table is located in the kitchen - perfect for lunch or a kids table. You have a view of the pool which is great when you are cooking dinner and friends or kids are in the pool courtyard or the sunroom.
The sitting room is connected to the kitchen and has a daybed and two club chairs. An arm chair sits in the corner next to a bar cart and has a tv that can be viewed from the sitting and kitchen area.
The sun room sits off the kitchen and is the only access to the pool courtyard. This room as a combination dining table/pool table/ ping pong table and has a tv. This space is an extension of the courtyard and has a curated plant collection.
Master Bedrooms (2):
Most of the time we travel with friends and have the kids in tow. We decided to make two masters so everyone feels comfortable! Each room has a king bed, chair, black out curtains and a closet. One master faces the pool courtyard and the other a red cedar hedge.
￼Perfect for kids or a big group, this room has two bunk beds and looks out over the pool courtyard.
One large bathroom is spacious and includes a stand up shower. This bathroom is shared with the living space for guests. The second bath has a shower tub combo and is located in the hall across from the bunk room and near the other master.
The front has one of the most amazing live oaks on the island. There is a very special limb that arches over the drive and touches the ground. Please be mindful when you arrive and know that oversized vehicles or suv’s with racks or boxes will need to use the Cater street entrance. The limb is lit so you can see it at night. A kids swing hangs from another cool limb on the tree.
This is a private space that is lined in bamboo and huge tree ligustrums. The pool has a 12” raised beam so you have to step up and down before you enter the pool. Three sides of the pool have 2’x2’ cast stone pavers set in a limerock and granite loose pebble mixture. We have 4 chaise lounges facing the pool and a farm table for dining. There is a great live oak in the courtyard that is lit at night. The pool can be heated. This is a great space for entertaining or making family memories.
We have a large tv over the fireplace and one in the sitting area that can be viewed from the kitchen. We also have one out in the sunroom. We do not have tv’s in the bedroom.
We have young children and so do most of our friends so we know what traveling is like with young ones. We have a kids closet that is full of all of the day to day items one would need for little ones. We have toys, books, high chair, plastic plates, sippy cups, and a small kids table that can be pulled out for your stay. A pack n play is available upon request. We have two swings that are great for kids. One is located in the front yard and one out back. While the house is very kid friendly, if you don't have kids, don't let that turn you off! The decor is very neutral - even the bunk room!
Kelvin Grove is located off Old Demere next to Bloody Marsh. The neighborhood has only one entrance so there is no through traffic. It is an active neighborhood with kids and homeowners out walking dogs and visiting. It is also a family neighborhood so please treat the house and the neighborhood like you would your own.
