Affectionately named ‘Happy Place’ by its owners, this British West Indies style custom residence was designed as a tropical haven outfitted to take full advantage of its breathtaking waterfront views of Sarasota Bay and offer a boater’s oasis from the everyday. The home rests on the site slightly canted in response to capturing waterfront views from nearly every room and the desire to maximize the living space of the lot. This bay-front home was designed by John Cooney of Stofft Cooney Architects. The interiors of the home, designed by Angela Rodriguez Interiors, draw from the abundance of natural light reflecting off the sparkling waters of the bay as well as the shared passion of the owners for an indoor-outdoor lifestyle. With a coastal contemporary motif, clean white and organic materials are used in harmony throughout to create a tranquil space.
