A Home for All Ages

The goal for this energy-efficient home was to integrate design, form and function in order to create a multigenerational abode for a growing family. It was also important to create space for entertaining guests and room for the kids to run and play.

Hidden Oasis

An enchanting garden is filled with vibrant colors and tropical foliage. Pavers naturally lead you to all the designated spaces. There’s a yard, lanai with seating and outdoor showers in the back. Custom art pieces are treasures found along the way, like the bird bath in the center.

This modern residence flourishes with high-end amenities and design. The whole place is orchestrated to easily connect and flow together. A favorite area is the piano room where the piano sits on a turntable to allow users to look out at the ocean or into the living room.
