This completely customized Old Florida home features cypress and pine construction, a gabled metal roof, and a beachfront pool.

Many of us spend time daydreaming about what our dream home would look like. Living on the Gulf Coast of Florida provides endless options to create your custom waterfront oasis. The team at Vertical | Design+Build specializes in making that dream a reality.

Coastal homes are typically on an elevated foundation and evoke a feeling of a vacation home. These homes are usually located on or near the waterfront, with porches, various wood materials, metal roofs, and elevated, wide eaves. Of course, you can’t forget to have plenty of outdoor living space and panoramic windows so you can take in spectacular views.

Multiple outdoor living spaces, including porches on all different levels and sides of the home, offer plenty of spots to take in a glorious sunset.

Take this charming Old Florida Island House. Tucked away in a secluded spot along Sarasota Bay, this home exudes Old Florida charm but is completely up-to-date with modern amenities. This design + build home was completely customized by the homeowners, featuring cypress and pine construction, a gabled metal roof, a beachfront pool, and plenty of open spaces to take in a sunset.

The homeowners were sure to include multiple outdoor living spaces. This included porches on all different levels and sides of the home, as well as different ground-level spaces, too. The tropically inspired landscaping is the perfect finishing touch, adding a cohesive element from the home to the water.
