PLATINUM AWARD -One-of-a-Kind Custom Home
Set along the oceanfront, this shingle-styled custom home is a flipped plan, where the main living and entertaining occurs on the second floor. The client chose this layout to view the breakers on the ocean beyond the lagoon and on-site golf course.
The first level is dedicated to guests providing spa-like bedrooms and bathrooms and a secondary living room, which doubles as a theatre. The third floor is the couple's cozy apartment with vaulted bedroom ceiling and half circular window framing their personal ocean view, which leads out to a private balcony.
