The Drayton Hall Plan 1238 is under construction in Duncan, SC!
Builder Tim Snow of Avery Construction has completed The Drayton Hall plan 1238! See exterior and interior photography below!
The Drayton Hall plan features unmatched curb appeal with a wide stone entry, courtyard and fountain. The dramatic stone arch, front courtyard and Old World style mixed materials create a lasting first impression. No detail has been overlooked in this spacious two story European style home.
The large island provides working space for multiple chefs. A butler’s pantry connects the kitchen to the dining room and creates a space to stash dirty dishes or extra wine and linens. A large, open e-space connects the breakfast and kitchen space to the family room. Built-ins and a decorative ceiling make this room comfortable but luxurious. A lavish master suite on the main floor and a spacious, secluded guest suite upstairs create flexibility. Custom-styled details including a laundry chute, built-in cabinetry, niches and elegant ceiling treatments.
This narrow cottage, with front-entry garage, opens to a surprisingly spacious floor plan. A cooktop island overlooks the great room for easy entertaining. The pantry and utility room provide convenience while skylights filter nature light onto the rear porch. The master bedroom features a freestanding bathtub, dual sink vanity and a walk-in shower. A window bring light into the oversized master closet. Three large bedrooms are upstairs with two full bathrooms. Adjoining hall closets offer storage and the bonus room is an ideal common space for games or movies.

When I began my career at Donald Gardner Architects, I never dreamed that one day I would be building my own Gardner home. About two years ago my husband Bryon and I began looking for a house to purchase. Our wish list may have been a bit ambitious because nothing we found met our expectations. One night while out on a walk with our dog, Bryon said to me, “you know, you look at house plans all day, maybe we should build one”. The thought had never crossed my mind. Did I even want to build a house? It was an exciting and intimidating possibility.
I came to work the next day with a new perspective. If I were to pick a Gardner plan, which one would fit our needs? Our house search came up empty, mostly because we wanted 10+ acres of land and our home style is very contemporary (see mention of ambitious wish list above!). Building gave us the possibility to have both and it suddenly became very clear that yes, we did want to build a house!
