Stilt Home - LONGBOAT KEY, FL
Seasonal-This home could best be described as a Contemporary Key West style. The triple gable design, wrap around porches, metal roof and exposed rafters and eave tails all nod to the historical roots of the area. However, this is not your Grandfather’s fish camp! This all masonry structure stands strong on deep, concrete pilings to resist the most persistent storms. The casement and awning windows, and storm resistant doors are of the most durable materials and feature large-missile, impact resistant glass, that is insulated, argon filled and treated with a Low-E coating to greatly reduce heat loads. Yesterday’s tern metal roof has been replaced with an Energy Star rated, highly reflective metal roof. Unlike the old “breathable” homes built in the area long ago, we designed the home to lock up tightly like a refrigerator to conserve power, or capture the humid breeze without concern for material degradation. Amazing HVAC, quality Energy Star appliances, gorgeous mill work details and a Florida Friendly, drought tolerant landscape are just a few features worth noting. This is a non-smoking property.
