So, what’s so special about The Flamingo House? Many things! Having closely followed their client’s requests for a serene retreat that connects residents of the property with the island’s natural beauty, CMSA Architects aimed to evoke the sense of a tropical haven with the home’s terraced floor plan, which creates the illusion of the bay being close enough to touch. The residence’s overall appearance draws inspiration from traditional Balinese architecture with added aspects from the British West Indies, and its direct connection to water is characteristic of the Balinese style. It’s a taste of Bali right here in Florida!

The Flamingo House features many other highlights in its exquisite design, including Zen-inspired gardens, koi ponds, a swimming pool with a swim-up bar, and pool decks and pathways intended to appear as if they are floating. Many more water features are interspersed throughout the outdoor living spaces, which are accessible via bridges and stepping stones.

And if you think the outside of the home is impressive, wait till you see the inside. The interior of the house is very spacious, with two floors above a ground-level garage and storage areas; the first floor consists of a west-facing mother-in-law’s suite (which would give your mother-in-law a wonderful view of the sunset) and two south-facing guest suites, while the owner’s suite makes up the entire upper level. If you’re the owner, that’s an entire floor of, in CMSA Architects’ words, civilized comfort. That’s the very picture of luxury!

Despite its grand appearance (and boy, is it grand), the home was also designed to be practical, with the exterior materials, such as the sanded stucco finish and mahogany wood accents, being durable and easy to maintain. The entire house is built on a sturdy foundation of poured concrete and concrete blocks, and the windows and doors are carefully insulated.
