Rivetta Retreat

Sarasota, FL

This lot is carved into the backdrop of a pristine nature preserve. The narrow linear lot on a cul-de-sac offered little street frontage for a big design opportunity. The front façade and door act as a gate to the preserve beyond that it guards. Small design elements were used like the corner window feature wall clad in cypress whose frame bends around the window to the ground itselfand also forms the entry ceiling. A coquina shell tabby stucco accents the pearly white stucco which pierces through the entry for a foyer feature wall. The inside volume is larger than it appears on the outside, clerestory windows open to the north to offer natural lighting and untouchable green space views. The clear views allow for the natural landscape to come into the home, bringing the outdoors in. A twenty foot long pool and seven foot square spa centers on the axial arrangement of the home.

The kitchen cabinetry closely matches the coquina tabby color as the white oak flooring adds warmth to the open space. The great room feature wall which is also coquina shell tabby splitsthe home in to two sections of communal and private space. Beyond the fire and media feature wall is the family room, master bedroom suite which opens onto the pool deck, and two guest bedroom suites. Totaling just over three thousand square feet this home is surely a relaxing retreat.
