CANNONSGATE ARCHITECTURAL GUIDELINES

The Architectural and design criteria established for the Cannonsgate Homeowners Association provides an overall framework and comprehensive set of standards and procedures for the development of the community. These Guidelines have been developed to provide direction for the planning, designing, constructing, landscaping, and modifying of all residences, buildings, and structures or improvements within the Cannonsgate community. The Guidelines set forth criteria for design, style, materials, colors and location of site improvements, landscaping, signage, lighting and other structures. In addition, the Guidelines establish a process for review of all proposed construction and modifications to residences, buildings, and structures to ensure that all home sites within Cannonsgate are developed with consistency and quality.

The Cannonsgate community was developed with the intent of creating a Charleston like community, representative of not only the homes within the Charleston Historic District of Charleston, South Carolina, but to include the architecture of what is known as Low-Country. The low-country style is seen in and around towns such as Georgetown, Beaufort, Camden, Cheraw and others. The Charleston Single with the side porch is the most distinctive Charleston styled home recognized by many. But Charleston architecture incorporated many other styles as it developed early-on into a Neoclassical city. The main styles of the city are Palladian (root of the Charleston “Double House”), Adamesque, Greek and Roman Revival, Italianate and Gothic. The design of homes in the city as well as public buildings required a significant knowledge of Architectural History. Characteristic of these homes is that the architects were consistent with the selected style and did not mix elements from one style to another.
