Spring Break in Southern Florida means warmth, sunshine, beaches, restaurants and more. Being in the business of home remodeling, construction and design we can't help but admire the gorgeous homes lining the streets, waterways and beach fronts in the an area of the country voted the Healthiest, Happiest Place in America for the third year in a row. Stretching from Sanibel Island through Fort Meyers down to Napels & Marco Island, we got our fill of Mediterranean/Florida Style Homes.
Home Plans describes these homes: The quintessential coastal Mediterranean Modern or Florida Style home plan has its roots in Spanish and/or Mediterranean styles. The massing in Mediterranean Modern home plans is bold and noble, and often includes a two-story entry flanked by columns. Low-slung rooflines clad with red-clay tiles are common, as is a stucco exterior. The interior is open and unhindered by walls, which allows for good air circulation. The "footprint" of Mediterranean Modern home plans often focuses on the backyard area, which usually includes a terrace, lanai, deck or patio that borders a pool. Exotic, elegant and energy-wise, coastal Floridian home plans boast a popularity that hasn't waned for decades.
Ranging from small and modest fixer uppers to expansive, water front, estate compounds, Southern Florida homes are inviting to say the least and are worth a visit many times over. It's hard to return to winter here in the Bold North of Minnesota but the sun, salt and sea of the happiest place in America is unforgettable. We'll be back!
