Resort style custom – Boca Grande

This Florida resort style custom home sits directly across from the Gulf of Mexico, on the gorgeous and exclusive Gasparilla Island.

We were pleased to be selected by Safety Harbor Builder’s owner, David Benner to design the Boca Grande home for terrific Minnesota clients. Mr. Benner believed ESHP’s owner-designer Dave Jenkins, could design the 4 bedroom, 4-1/2 bath “empty-nest-resort” in less than 3,000 sq. ft. of living space. We’re very happy to report that the discerning builder was right!

At first glance of the front facade, the 2,892 sq. ft. home appears to be a Traditional style, story and a half. Enter the home through the broad front porch and be surprised by the vaulted ceiling above the Living, Kitchen and Dining rooms while exposed decorative timber trusses cozy up the generous space. Triple dormers naturally brighten up the truly Great Room, from above.

The 4th bedroom, nearest the Master Suite. serves day to day as a Study and as a last resort, a third guest bedroom.

The Guest Suite above the Garage is the perfect, private getaway with a view of the outdoor pool deck.

The Large L-Shaped Lanai offers generous covered outdoor seating and dining area, a cabana powder bath and of course an outdoor kitchen.

The Kitchen, Dining Room, Living Room, Master Bedroom and Guest Suite 3 all have views of the outdoor deck, fire pit and lushly landscaped, resort style swimming pool and spa. A home where every day is a getaway.
