The Sand Castle
Built in 1923, this truly unique property underwent a complete renovation and restoration in 2016. We worked closely with our clients to ensure that all materials brought into this home were period appropriate and that we did not undo any of the homes original character. We tapped in to a whole new pool of local talent and craftsman which included metal smiths, bricklayers, carpenters, flooring restorers and we even found a plaster man who wowed us daily. Visitors are often found soaking in it's beauty from the turret on this wonderful historic Castle.
Holmes Beach was once an affordable development in the 50's and 60's. The homes that were developed consisted primarily of conservative ranch style duplexes. Flip Flop is a great example of an renovated island duplex. Our client had a lot of fun introducing fun materials that were reminiscent of the time when the property was constructed. Retro appliances, terrazzo floors and eclectic lighting make this property very special.
This precious gulf front home was the original fish camp on Anna Maria Island. It was a known destination for serious anglers in the 30's and 40's. It was such a respected and admired property that when the owners wanted to sell the land, another family bought the home and had it moved 1 mile south to the location where it currently resides. The original structure has been completely updated and an additional guest quarters were added. Great care went into ensuring the home maintained its original character and that the addition simply looked like it had been there forever.
