Designed to take full advantage of the outdoors, this executive residence in Destin celebrates a carefree, casual lifestyle with two bedrooms and 2.5 baths in the main house. Two sides of the home are wrapped by an outdoor garden space reminiscent of the city homes of Charleston and New Orleans, allowing all rooms to open up to the fragrance of flowers and sounds of a bubbling central fountain. To promote sustainability, the courtyard floor is made up of hardscape pavers with very little grass to maintain. Complimenting the living quarters is a well-appointed apartment over the garage providing for guest privacy, yet close proximity to the main house.
With 3,800 sf of conditioned space and an additional 1,000 sf of attic storage, which is also conditioned, the home was designed to withstand even the most severe of storms. Hard coat stucco and additional structural accoutrements provide an ease of mind for this house which is just a few hundred feet from the Gulf of Mexico.
