It's hard to believe it's been 15 years since we completed our dream home here in historic Picolata, FL. The day we found this idyllic 2.5 acres and started the 2-year process of planning this special home, we knew we were also planning the ''Southern Comfort'' lifestyle we sought for our retirement years--a life encompassing the activities we loved--swimming, boating, shrimping, fishing, entertaining, and connecting with the native flora and fauna with which we would share our daily lives. We wanted a casual low-country design where each room would flow outdoors to wide open porches or a covered lanai and pool, a dock for our sailing and power boats and room to park our RV with no rules to break--a tranquil country setting within a 10-15 minute drive to all we needed minus the crowds. We wanted to incorporate the many impressive architectural features we remembered from past tropical island vacations-27'-high beamed ceilings with dormer windows and walls of 10' high French doors invite inside the bright Florida sunshine and flow out to over 1,600 s.f. of covered patios and porches, expanding the total living area under roof to over 5,000 s.f. Dozens of ceiling fans set the slow pace we craved as they lazily circulate, re-creating the island breezes we so loved. Rich hickory wood floors flow throughout and plantation shutters offer relief from the peak of the summer heat. Brick columns with extruded grout joints,cementitious lap siding and a commercial grade metal roof complete the appealing Low Country style. We dreamed of entertaining friends and family in the grand old southern plantation-style of years gone by, in a setting updated with the best materials, systems, and construction the market offered. Each detail has been carefully incorporated into the design. We know it's time to leave this spot that was so perfect for so many years, as we prepare for the next phase of our lives together. Hoping for a new family to love and enjoy the fruits of our labor.
