When investment bank John Howard retired, he wanted a laid back setting as his vacation home, and that is exactly what he found in Palmetto Bluff.  With beautiful live oaks covered in Spanish moss, marshes, and towering pines, this was the place to sit back and relax.

Howard brought in architect Geoffry Bray and interior designer Wendy Kirkland to create the look and atmosphere he was looking for.  I would say mission accomplished.
