Mediterranean on the Gulf

This client found a site along scenic Highway 30-A that offered some of the most gorgeous views of the Gulf of Mexico. Inside the home, the views gradually unfold, starting with the entryway’s vista framed by a small den. The view then opens onto a terrace with an infinity-edge pool overlooking the Gulf. To maximize the panoramic location, we placed all of the main living areas, as well as an outdoor screened porch, on the second floor. The exterior consists of stuccoed brick and parapets, giving the home its Mediterranean appeal. Our favorite part is the writer’s nest in the top of the stair tower.
