This classic coastal architectural beach house is located on the Gulf in Prestigious Caribe, Florida. Originally designed in 1994 by the legendary former Seaside Town Architect Tom Christ, this Gulf-front legacy home again benefited by Christ’s talents when it was recently redesigned. Rarely does the original architect get the opportunity to modernize a home almost 20 years later.
Inspired by the French Islands, the Caribbean, and the Gulf, this beach home is a new vision of Florida architecture. The recent total renovation preserved some of this plantation manor’s traditional elements, along with a few hallmarks of a French Island getaway.
This elegant but comfortable showpiece embraces modern coastal living.The interiors have a classic, timeless appeal with coffered ceilings with stacked crown molding, architectural millwork and impeccable red oak hardwood floors. Ornate dental work outlines the ceilings, while wainscoting decorates the walls. A neutral palette with pops of blues and greens accentuates views of emerald waters that can be enjoyed throughout this space.
Here, you will find a home full of inspiring details and views that will sure bring some warmth to your day. I hope you have a good time here!
