List of 2014 homes

The Belk Home

This newly remodeled 1960s beach house boasts a spacious, open kitchen/eating room done in cheery Delft blue and white, pecky cypress walls and ceilings restored to their glossy original condition and a screened porch and deck with ocean views that go on forever. Don't miss the unique free-form outdoor pool and the two tenn-friendly guestrooms below the main level.


The Gantt Home

One of the special features of his homes is its location: right next door to the owner's twin sister! Just over a year old, this compact, contemporary home is light and airy, decorated in mostly white and gold tones and accented with an eclectic assortment of mirrors. Don't miss the homeowner's colle3ction of black-and-white art prints, taken from a 1948 artists's, scattered throughout the home.


The King Home

As suggested by a plaque hanging in the kitchen, it feels as though if this home's walls really could talk, then oh, the stories they'd tell. Originally a 1920s guest cottage for VIP visitors to the nearby Pine Lakes Golf Club, the home was expanded and remodeled in the late 1990s and is now a comfy mix of modern and traditional styles. Interesting nooks and crannies are everywhere - like its six bathrooms - along with whimsical decorating touches, like the two pumpkin-shaped light sconces suspended from bronze alligators' jaws in the masculine den. We know you won't miss the inviting rear courtyard with fountain and lots of lush paintings; in fact, you'll have a hard time leaving it.


The Lee Home

This spacious (over 3,000 feet) Italian Mediterranean home is loaded with opulent touches, from the Carrera marble and hardwood floors to the custom coffered ceilings. A recent addition created the spacious master suite and screened porch; but don't miss the delightful sunset-hued guest room with sunny yellow and green hand-painted bamboo furnishings.


The Skelley Home

Space, high-tech style and luxury abound in this newly-built custom contemporary home at the ocean's edge, from its warm-toned walnut floors to its aluminum-cable stair railings, commerical kitchen appliances and chrome and stainless-steel fixes. Oversized windows in a variety of shapes bring in the sun, sly and sea, while comfy, luxurious furnishings invite guests to relax and enjoy the indoors in the open living/dining/great room. A spacious first-floor master suite features twin walk-in closets, a man-sized walk-in shower and free-standing bathtub. On the top floor are three more bedrooms plus a huge entertainment - complete with full-size pool table. And while you're gawking at the magnificent ocean view, be sure to check out the infinity pool and spa on the outdoor deck.


The Trio Home

You'll think you've been transported to Florida as you're surrounded by tropical colors and prints - particularly in the sunny, turquoise-hued "Florida room." A custom frosted-glass front door helps bring in the sunshine throughout. A fun, eclectic collection of furnishings - many of them salvaged from "junk stores" and refinished by the owner - adds to the feeling of a year-round vacation home.


Luncheon Buffet

Besides a feast for the eyes, the day also offers a feast for the taste buds with a luncheon buffet - served along with an ocean view - at The Dunes Golf and Beach Club. Generously sponsored and decorated by B. Graham Interiors.
