This picturesque beach home features large windows to take advantage of the amazing scenery; many types of trees, shrubs and plants; stepping stones to the entryway; a gravel driveway; panel construction and a standing seam roof.
A wide front porch, topped with a 24-gauge standing-seam roof, invites relaxation and conversation with neighbors at HGTV Smart Home 2013. Pine straw-covered beds planted with Asiatic jasmine greet guests along the front fence.
Beside the pool is a separate building made of hand-cut stone and standing seam copper roof to house a powder room, changing room, toys and pillows. In between the doors is also a outdoor shower to rinse off.
A paver walkway leads to the entrance of this beautiful home. A mix of natural rock and mulch creates a simple yet lovely landscape around the front. The stucco exterior and standing seam metal roof creates an interesting country-meets-mediterranean facade.
Designer Lisa Furey's challenge was to design and build a 690-square-foot low country cottage that would include a kitchen, laundry area, bedroom and workspace as well as outdoor space. Board and batten siding, a standing seam metal roof and board and batten composite shutters — all weather-proof choices — give the exterior a farmhouse feel.
