Arthur Rutenberg Homes

Arthur Rutenberg has been a respected name in homebuilding since 1953, when he built his first home upon the four “cornerstones” that would make him legendary: design, craftsmanship, service and responsibility.

With over 120 different designs, from 1,900 to over 7,000 square feet, there is an Arthur Rutenberg Home to match every lifestyle. Every Arthur Rutenberg home is created to achieve understated elegance, exquisite style and maximum livability–all while harmoniously integrating the personal changes a homeowner desires.

Our company, Blue Ocean Luxury Homes, is proud to partner with Arthur Rutenberg Homes here in the South Carolina Lowcountry!

“We were fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Deb & Doug Durrant of Arthur Rutenberg Homes to create a fabulous home. In the beginning there were challenges in fitting our dream home on our lot but they overcame those challenges. They worked really hard to accommodate our wishes. Chip Adams, their construction superintendent, has a great work ethic with excellent follow-up. If you select them, they will build a wonderful house for you.”

– Jeff and Susan Toker


“This is my first construction of a new home and finding a reputable, experienced builder was my highest priority. Arthur Rutenberg Homes are a well known, quality home builder that offers custom homes with unique living space designs that I found very attractive. Deb and Doug Durant now make these homes available in the Bluffton area and I feel fortunate to have access to these quality designed homes provided by people with skill and integrity. Deb and Doug have earned my confidence and gratitude for their knowledgeable and accommodating approach to home building. Chip Adams, as construction manager, provided daily oversight during construction and along with the rest of the team provided frequent updates and allowed me to stay involved while living far away. As we are in the final phases of construction of my new, beautiful home, I can strongly recommend to anyone building in this area to be sure to talk to Deb and Doug Durant before making a final decision.”

– James R Mason, MD


“Our selection of Doug and Deb Durrant of Arthur Rutenburg Homes to build our retirement home has been one of the best we have ever made. Their advice, personal attention, and accessibility of key personnel were instrumental in giving us the confidence that the key design and material selections/decisions made are the correct ones to match our personal style and preferences. Now that we have moved into the construction phase and despite being over 500 miles away, they have made us feel very connected to the process with their weekly updates that included pictures. Indeed we feel more like a member of their extended family. They made the experience of home construction not an arduous ordeal to be endured, but rather a time of excited expectation.”
