For the ultimate in luxurious living, it’s hard to beat the allure of a dreamy coastal retreat. St. Petersburg’s Tropical Shores neighborhood, tucked away yet 10 minutes from Downtown, offers waterfront luxury blended with stylish urban living.
It’s what the owner of this two-story, four-bedroom, four-bathroom home had in mind when he began designing the home for him and his girlfriend. The vision was a design that complemented the overall architecture and captured the breathtaking bay view.
As such, blending indoor and outdoor living is top of mind in this 4,130-square-foot new build, which also incorporates 1,040 -square feet of covered porches. The living room, kitchen and primary bedroom are all water-facing.
Brooke Eversoll, CMKBD of Bee Studios, worked to highlight coastal elements in her design with a soft bright palette, natural textures and bright open space. “Clean lines and modern elements that create a light airy feel,” describes Eversoll. “It’s about bringing that light, bright casual yet elegant feel inside.”
The resultant crisp clean aesthetic amplifies the incomparable views. The abode is a tranquil space for the couple’s own endless summer at home. It’s no wonder that upon the home’s 2021 completion, it was used as the backdrop for the owner’s romantic overture, a wedding proposal to his future bride.
