Lemon Bay Pointe

Englewood, FL

Completed 2022

A highly unique, 1.27 acre peninsula shaped site on Lemon Bay allows for expansive views of pristine Gulf sunsets. Overlooking Manasota Key’s eastern shoreline, seven hundred lineal feet of seawall frontage has this home situated in the middle of the lot, further from the waterfront setback requirements. This gesture also preserves several grand oak trees on either end of the house. The minimalist home totals nearly 2,500 square feet of conditioned space and is punctuated with three hundred square feet of covered outdoor living that cascades to an 1,800 square foot pool deck with an integrated spa and pool. The hardscape is softened with elevated planter areas, small run staircases, and artificial turf to break up the typical flat sea of concrete decks.

The interior of this split level home features three bedrooms and three bathrooms organized around a large Great room area. The children’s rooms and primary bedrooms flank each end of the double height Great room as three distinct exterior volumes are unified through an expansive clerestory ribbon window allowing natural diffused light into the space.

The minimalist aesthetic is achieved by using raw concrete on the exterior and interior styling. Architectural concrete encapsulates the entry with a floating floor and cantilevered roof. An aggressively angled wall fits between those floating elements and draws guests toward the front door. The exposed concept is then carried to the interior spaces with a polished concrete main level slab and continues to the rear deck with exposed shell top concrete pavers at the pool. The concrete was planned and executed to be the contrasting element to a minimal palette of white stucco and glass.
