Alert! Pat Conroy’s Low-Key Lowcountry Home is For Sale
516 Remora Drive, Fripp Island, South Carolina
The home is just steps from the buzz of the lowcountry marshes Conroy so loved.
According to its listing, sale of the home includes the family’s “very large antique dining room table where Pat would hold family gatherings along with friends for dinners and conversations.”
The spacious kitchen opens up into the dining room, making entertaining a breeze.
Something tells us that Conroy was a fan of the tuxedo kitchen look long before it became trendy.
Conroy used one of the home’s three bedrooms as a study.
The airy, no-frills living room looks like the perfect place to concentrate on a debut novel.
The only thing the screened-in backyard porch is missing is a pitcher of sweet tea.
Native cabbage palms thrive in the lush backyard.
Peaceful Fripps Island
"The people of Fripp Island are very nice to me,” Conroy told Southern Living. “They leave me alone and let me write.”
