This American Institute of Architects-award-winning home featuring panoramic lake and golf views pairs sustainable design with relaxed elegance to create a distinctive tropical ambience. The eco-conscious floor plan places all corridors and transitional areas as well as most social rooms outside. Sheltered by Anglo-Caribbean-style roofs and eaves, these spaces offer perfect comfort while minimizing energy usage. An open-air double-height entry atrium set harmoniously at the home’s true center leads to a spacious loggia, then to a series of outdoor living and dining spaces along the south-facing courtyard gallery. A salt water pool, which integrates lap-swimming and wading areas, runs parallel to the gallery and culminates at a Bali-bed hovering just above the surface of the water. Landscaping highlights include queen palms, birds of paradise, and black bamboo. A free-standing double-height pavilion with a fireplace off the western end of the home is a beautiful place to enjoy refreshing cross breezes and sunset views. Interiors on the first floor are accessible from the atrium and from the courtyard gallery via French doors. These climate-controlled rooms include the family room and an entertaining kitchen with a dining area. The first floor also has a second “working” kitchen with chef-caliber culinary equipment. On the second floor, an outdoor living porch with a fireplace is located between the two bedroom wings and a covered balcony wraps the home, giving access to all five en-suite bedrooms, each of which features vaulted or coffered ceilings. The master bedroom suite, located at the western end of the home, enjoys panoramic lake and golf course views. A palette of rich, yet understated materials and masterfully executed craftsmanship touch every part of this home with sophistication.
