Crane island is beautiful. I have said that Florida is the one place where you have to go North to get to the South. This is definitely “the South”. This low lying land that gives way to marshlands and then to the sea coast. With the sub-tropical climate, opportunities for outdoor living are extensive at the Southern Living Idea House.
This screened patio is off of the Master Bedroom. Comfortable furniture, a fireplace for cool winter evenings makes the perfect spot for enjoying a quiet evening together.
How lovely to have a bar nearby, well stocked with beverages and snacks. This will keep you from having to make multiple trips from the kitchen.
As you leave the screen porch on the side of the house, you transition to the back porch. The view of the marshes and the inter-coastal waterway is priceless.
Alfresco dining is natural and a lovely table and elegant chairs make it comfortable on the back porch.
The main area of the back porch offers comfortable seating under cover and additional shade by SunSetter. This view looks in toward the indoor dining area. To the right is the living room with its bi-fold out swinging doors.
Underfoot is this gorgeous decking. This is Zuri Premium Decking in Weathered Gray. My husband and I think this might be just the decking we have been looking for to transform our porch floor.
How lovely are the colors on these pillows that make the swinging beds on the swinging porch comfy and inviting. You are never far from that view, either. A pair of these swing beds flank this upper story porch. Notice the detail of the black rod above the solid railing on the sides of the porch. This cozy spot is just off of the upstairs game room. I think this is my favorite spot in the entire house!
I realized I forgot to share the floor plan. Hopefully this will give you an idea of the flow of this house! There will be more of the game room, bunk room and additional bathrooms coming soon!
