New homes being built in an historic district had to embrace Old Florida architecture. The architectural committee required specific color palettes reminiscent of historic Florida homes. The Grand Award Winner of the 2019 Parade of Homes features an enormous front porch, windows on all sides of the homes, siding, and sloped roof pitches to meet the community requirements.
The exterior embraces a modern take on Old Florida architecture, while the inside blends contemporary styling and finishes with natural materials that appeal to the modern home buyer. The home offers all bedrooms en suite and an open floor plan with one formal space designed as a den. The patio is pocketed in the back of the home and the garage has the flexibility to be a side or rear load, depending on the site.
