Think Sarah Horton's stunning Charleston mansion is extraordinary? Tucked behind the home's courtyard is a 2,100 square foot guest house, a former carriage house whose redesign was overseen by architect Gil Schafer, who also worked on the main home's restoration. The guest house contains a kitchen, living and dining room and three cozy bedrooms and three baths.
A new wing was added in 2009 that doubled the living footprint in this Midcentury Modern home. It holds a capacious master suite with fireplace and luxurious wet-room style bath, 50-foot summer pool, full outdoor kitchen, covered entertainment area, and guest quarters with private entry.
Each room in Tracy Galasso's historic home and Airbnb features its own distinct personality. Chic gold numbers help guest locate their room, which can occasionally be difficult on the long white upstairs hallway.
The downstairs guest room features a Gray Malin photograph and a custom wall design Julianne created with washi tape. The merlot chair features one of Julianne's characteristic festive color clashes in the accompanying throw pillows, and is by Taylor Burke Home.
The terrace-level guest suite in the Sharps' home features what the couple consider a critical piece of design detail if space allows; a seating area which provides a space outside the main living area. "If they want to read or watch a program in private...they may not want to climb in bed."
“I tried to make it feel as daring as the rest of the house, but also like a pretty getaway,” Sonal says. For resort vibes, she chose a wicker headboard from World Market, a basket-y light from Serena & Lily, and grass cloth wallpaper by Phillip Jeffries. “My mom stays here a lot and she always asks, “Are you ever going to get tired of the blue?” Sonal says. “I tell her no! There’s so much to look at in our house, I never get tired of any of it.”
