Bird Key Provençal
Relaxed grandeur. This Provençal inspired custom residence pays homage to the elegant, but easy living stone villas called bastides that dot the French countryside. A home where every detail was carefully considered by the owners and scale played an important role. The residence, which sits on a garden lot on Bird Key, delightfully intertwines the rustic simplicity of Provence with elements of its tropical location. Ensconced with cobblestone pavers and honeyed travertine the white stucco façade gives rise to the quintessentially French roof adorned with Ludowici tiles and dormer windows. Natural stone, terracotta, reclaimed wood, venetian plaster, and exquisite wall coverings define the large, airy spaces. From the onset of design, the owner marveled over a vision of a grand fireplace of French limestone that you can nearly walk into. A delicate balance between masculine and feminine spaces, the home elevates an art collection that can be found niched into every turn. Step outside each of the rooms to a quatrefoil-shaped pool and garden that combines Florida’s native flora with the more formal verdant French landscapes.
