The Coastal Living House in Seagrove is featured in the December/January issue of Coastal Living magazine. As builder Peter Horn of Artisan, Inc., says of Seagrove, "Locals have strived to maintain that historic character. We like the sandy, unpaved roads and the old oak trees that create a canopy over the homes." That's what we loved about Seagrove when we bought property there in 2000. We told the contractor not to cut down any of the oaks unless absolutely necessary. We followed the advice of Randy at The Gourd Garden (now Clay) and kept the preexisting native shrubbery. It makes me sad to see "the groves" in Seagrove being bulldozed to maximize building area. Thanks, Peter, for reminding us how gorgeous the old oak trees and sandy roads are. The old Seagrove is a gem that needs to be valued, protected, and preserved. Thanks also to the Schnells and Tracery for their part in showcasing the natural beauty of Seagrove.
