This island style home plan has a stunning exterior which sets it apart from a typical raised home. Turret roof lines, a raised entryway, front porches, horizontal siding, and a metal roof give this home a contemporary, beach style look, but its balance makes it easily adaptable for any regional styling.
Front yard stairs lead to a covered entry porch, while curved stairs and an elevator at the foyer lead to the main living spaces. The formal dining room and parlour are side-by-side and open for entertaining on a grand scale. They take full advantage of the rear yard views through the sliding glass doors that open to the veranda. A casual leisure room is off the kitchen area.
Two full guest suites to the front yard have baths, plenty of closet space, and interesting ceilings that pamper guests.
The upper floor is the owners' area of the home. A gallery loft and study open to the front yard upper deck. Double doors lead into the suite. A vaulted ceiling, fireplace, and private deck make this space special. In the bath, his and her areas, a walk-in shower, soaking-tub, and dual walk-in closet areas make the home feel customized for the owners.
Double garages on each side of the entry staircase have deep covered overhangs. An optional layout for lower living areas makes use of this great bonus space if desired. A mud-style pool bath, kitchen, and exercise space can be built if needed.
While the materials may suggest a hint of tropical influence, the home is tailored for any special region.
