Diamond Custom Homes won the Silver Aurora Award for Best Custom Home over 8,000 sq. ft. for a private residence in Quail West.
The 9,311 total square-foot custom home was designed with a clean, straight look to maximize the scenic water views. A key design feature is the owners’ ability to walk in the front door and be greeted with an unobstructed view of the lake. Described as contemporary with a West Indies influenced architectural style, this estate home was built for an active entertaining lifestyle and required expansive garage space (6 and ½ cars) for the homeowners’ sports car collection.
Freestyle Interiors furnished and designed the inside of this estate. The interior design focuses on clean lines, earth tones and a warm, simple ambiance with an extensive use of walnut throughout the home. Arches line the hallway leading to the private spaces. Peaceful lake views provide the backdrop in the master bedroom, where the custom upholstered bed’s ultra linen suede headboard creates a feeling of both coziness and sophistication. Luxurious and serene, the master bath is centered by a freestanding tub that provides the ultimate in spa-like rejuvenation.
Christian Andrea handled the landscape architecture for this home. A custom bronze sculpture displayed outside in the private garden offers an artistic narrative to enjoy while bathing. On the loggia, various groupings of tables and chairs, chunky and square in concentric pattern, work well in the open-air setting.
The Southeast Building Conference (SEBC) is the largest building industry trade show in the Southeast. Every August, the SEBC, in conjunction with the Florida Homebuilder’s Association (FHBA) presents the Aurora Awards highlighting outstanding builders, planners, architects, developers, designers, interior merchandisers and other house related professionals in twelve states across in the Southeast United States. Diamond Custom Homes took home the Silver Aurora Award for Category 33: Best Custom Home over 8,000 sq. ft.
