BEST ONE-OF-A-KIND CUSTOM HOME (BUILT FOR A CLIENT)

 

This second-home retreat near the emerald shores of Panama City Beach, Fla., caters to move-up buyers, empty nesters and families seeking a vacation home. Architect Bill Foley created this bungalow-style home with a Coastal Craftsman vision by taking key elements that shaped the Arts & Crafts movement and placing them within the home.

Exterior natural earth tones of cedar, brick and stone mix with authentic eave brackets, muttined windows, tapered columns and covered porches. Local craftsmen designed custom interiors with placement of cherry woodwork, chestnut floors, art glass room separators and custom built-ins found throughout the home. A barrel-vaulted ceiling extends across the main living room to the entry porch, highlighting the open floor plan.
