Desiring to build a home that has a historic vibe, our clients sought out a local architect that has perfected ageless design. Their home is just steps from the beautiful beaches of Anna Maria Island and is nestled up against a stunning Banyan tree. Much care went into ensuring the home captured the views of the ocean as well as the romantic Banyan. There are covered porches on all sides as well as just the right amount of colonial windows so the homeowners and guests feel intimately connected to the beauty.
Hidden away on a lovely twelve-acre plot our clients desired to bring their property back to its roots. What once was a Mango Farm many moons ago has been reborn as an active farm with a well-placed farmhouse for a bustling family of seven. Finding an architect that had familiarity with "farm life" was the key to making this project a success. Board and batten siding, a corrugated metal roof, copper lanterns, form and poured concrete fireplace, reclaimed beams, a scullery, and a sleeping porch are just a few of the special details that make this home truly unique.
A little vacation is all it took for this active family of five to fall in love with Anna Maria Island. After securing a lot on the north part of the island, the homeowners worked with a local architectural designer to create the perfect retreat for themselves and their extended family. Cool, calm and casual details greet you at the front door and run continuously through the home. A nod to the easy-going nature of island life is present through details such as the abundant decks, a nautical bunk room, board and batten, and a light-filled living space. Everything about this home makes you want to just take life a little easier.
This classic island style home is the work of the well known island designer. The abundant decks, covered walkways, sleeping porch, and perfectly appointed pool are enjoyed year-round by homeowners and visitors. One of the most unique and wonderful features of this home is the detached garage with guest quarters. This space was designed to house their frequent visits by family and friends.
Having vacationed on Anna Maria Island for years, the homeowners decided they wanted to design a home that would be a destination for their ever-growing family. Working with a local architectural designer, they incorporated the perfect blend of communal family space as well as private escapes for all guests to enjoy when they need a little quiet time. Located right on the beach, this home has three levels of outdoor living and all of the common areas capture what the beautiful beach has to offer. The coastal exterior color palette is perfectly crowned with a copper whale weathervane for all passersby to enjoy.
