ROSEMARY BEACH, FL PRIVATE RESIDENCE
This Rosemary Beach home was originally purchased to give an updated “refresh,” but once construction began, it became clear to the owner and art collector, this bluff-facing space was not suitable and became a “tear down.”
A Boheme was given creative license to offer design solutions not formerly implemented for previous clients. The front entry faces west and onto a community park area creating a lovely atmosphere for special events. The second outdoor balcony permits the residents to enjoy the amazing sunsets and park festivities. The oversized mahogany front door is flanked by Bevolo brass gas lights, stair steps of antique Jerusalem terrazzo stone tiles, and continuing into the first-floor interior and entry of the home. The first floor was specifically designed for accommodating guests by creating under the staircase a “ship galley” that is self-sufficient with storage cabinets, refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher.
The surprise on the second floor at the top of the staircase and brass railing is a freestanding kitchen area that maintains the open floor plan and maximizes the exterior atmosphere from the clear glass windows. Within this expansive room is a full bar, dining room, fireplace, and living room under a high exposed wood ceiling and accenting hinge white beams with brass chandeliers.
The primary bathroom room features a hand-carved marble tub, custom-designed hand-carved moldings to bracket the marble cladding on the walls behind the tub and continue into the glass-enclosed shower room. It was an engineering feat accommodating the weight and placement of these spectacular embellishments.
The home exterior is accented with copper gutters, copper chimney crown, and Bevolo brass lights which are subtle touches supporting the striking presence of this resplendent home.
