Modern sophistication meets rustic coastal comfort in this 4,140-square-foot floor plan. Its ultra-functional space features a resort-style bedroom suite, finished walkout lower level, scenic deck and patio areas, additional storage areas and many customization opportunities.

Architectural features include colossal wood beams, unique vaulted ceilings, a dramatic curved staircase, a creatively contoured lower-level bar, a private outdoor lanai, a suspended-slab garage and an extraordinary backyard.

The challenges in building this home included designing a curved staircase and railing to suit the style of the home. They rebuilt the space to get the perfect location and curve for the staircase and stairwell, and a metal railing was custom-designed and fabricated. They also custom-designed a light fixture to accent and fill the space.

For the outdoor living area, they brought in special equipment to boom large boulders in place without removing any existing trees in order to preserve the natural ambiance. They added a fire pit, swings, a swinging bed, rock steps, luxurious landscaping and more to further capitalize on the beauty of nature.

Hotel-Like Luxury

The overall goal for this custom home was to bring a sense of modern Prairie style, instilling a feeling of the past with common sense for the future. The homeowner emphasized the concept of a modern luxury hotel—warm and inviting with clean lines. The design team chose limestone and rift oak throughout the home to contrast each other in a warm, earth-tone feeling.
