After 32 years in Curtis Park, Anne Ferguson is selling her 26th Street home and moving cross-country to her newly purchased house in Habersham, S.C., near Beaufort.
“It’s an opportunity to live in a part of the country I’ve not seen,” she said. “The new community has similarities common to ours – it’s an active neighborhood.” Before retirement, Anne worked as an attorney specializing in health-care business transactions and regulatory matters.
Her lifelong passion for interior design led her to form ChambreChic, a business specializing in one-day room makeovers and other design work. She plans to continue this business in her new location.
Anne opened her charming home during two Curtis Park home tours. She believes Beaufort will be a good locale for new designs. It’s an area along the Sea Islands with plenty of historic architecture, waterfront activities and a friendly community.
Anne moved to Curtis Park in 1988. She viewed 100 houses before finding her 26th Street home.
“I put everything into this house, all the improvements and extensive remodeling,” she said. “I loved my home, but I found a home I like equally as much.”
Driving to her new home across the country “fulfills a dream,” she said. Freckles, her English spaniel, will keep her company during the drive.
