Wayne and Maria approached us to design their custom home. The scope of work was to design a house that complemented the property and enhanced the value. This beautiful and private, 468-foot deep lot has the rear facing the Caloosahatchee River in Ft. Myers, Fl. and in the distance the Cape Coral Causeway Bridge can be seen. By request, the home was placed closer to the water to take full advantage of the panoramic river views. The openness of the verandas and pool deck allows them to enjoy the river breezes. Inside the home such amenities as the Master Suite with his/her bath, an exercise room, Parlor, Study, Guest Bedrooms with private baths, a bar and wine cellar adjacent to a Formal Dining Room. As the builder, Harwick Homes’ scope of work included the demolition of the existing house and executing a construction that has met and exceeded Wayne’s and Maria’s expectations.
This residence is a great example of how to find balance between contemporary and traditional architectural design. To keep with the contemporary design that our client insisted on, we chose not to use arched openings or arched windows. The exterior bandings and moldings were kept horizontal, sleek and simple. The entire, front façade was kept very symmetrical and balanced. To satisfy the Tiburon Country Club traditional guidelines, we used round, precast concrete columns under straight bulkhead beams and railings with a diamond, basket-weave design to introduce some traditional elements. Also, the client and Kelly Vince from Vince Muller Interior Design agreed on some organic colors such as the jade green railings and barrel, roof tiles, and for the exterior walls a subtle, white color was chosen for a clean and sophisticated look.
