It's not everyday that I associate architect Frank Lloyd Wright with the Lowcountry. Amelia Handegan's welcoming South Carolina house, above, is what comes to mind when I think about the region. But there's more architectural variety here than you might think. Apart from Angie's house, there is Frank Lloyd Wright's Auldbrass, in Yemassee.

Look how it fits with the landscape. Although parts of the circa 1939 farmstead are open for public tours, I've been told that Auldbrass is not available for private parties. Currently, though, G & G is auctioning a chance to host a dinner party there for twelve. James Beard Award-winning Chef Mike Lata of Charleston’s FIG restaurant will serve as private chef for the evening, and guests will be able to take a guided tour of the house, the aviary, sculpture gardens, and stables. A portion of the final bid will benefit the Beaufort County Open Land Trust. Click here for details.
