Cliff’s Cottage at Furman University
Juli 7, 2008
The 3,400-square-foot Cliffs Cottage at Furman University, a Southern Living Showcase home, opened in June for public tours to educate about living stylish but also eco-friendly.
It was built as a model of environmentally responsible design, sustainable building techniques and materials, and energy-saving systems.
From solar-panel systems to engineered wood, Bamboo flooring, stocked with energy-efficient appliances and even capable of generating power rather than draining it, to the insulated windows, this residential home has all the latest technological innovations in sustainable living. The commitment to sustainability has also been applied to the landscaping, the gardens, the rainwater collection systems, driveway and walkways surrounding the home.
Partners for the Cliffs Cottage are the Furman University, Southern Living, The Cliffs Communities, Duke Energy and Bank of America. Southern Living will feature The Cliffs Cottage Showcase Home and gardens in several issues of its magazine.
The Cliffs Cottage is open for the public on
Fridays 10 am – 2 pm,
Thursdays 10 am – 6 pm,
Saturdays 10 am – 4 pm and
Sundays noon – 4 p
Furman University, Greenville, SC
