Breezy Gulf Coast Retreat

Georgia uses a mix of complementary materials throughout the house. In the kitchen, a colorful mosaic tile inset accentuates the white backsplash and stove. Oversized wooden brackets enliven the hood.

Like many beach houses along Scenic 30-A, the main floor is hoisted up to capture the breezes, afford privacy, and take advantage of the views of both Western Lake and the Gulf of Mexico. Its congenial charm unfolds immediately with a cloistered screen porch that doubles as a true outdoor room and a generous breezeway connection between the main house and freestanding carriage house.
