75918-B600Florida House Plan 75918 is designed for enjoying tropical climates with a generous front porch and a covered lanai with outdoor kitchen in the rear. Blue shutters help filter the sun from the windows upstairs, and it’s recommended to install reflective metal roofing to save on energy costs. Another great feature seen from the outside: the upper balcony affords a beautiful view of the landscape which is dominated by palm trees waving in the breeze.

What’s a 5814 square foot house without a swimming pool? This design features a pool / cabana room and bathroom off the lanai. Right off the great room is a wet bar, proving that this luxurious home will accommodate the best indoor / outdoor parties. The master bathroom has a unique “his and hers” split bathroom featuring an individual toilet and sink for husband and wife.  The main level also includes kitchen, study, powder room and laundry.

An elevator brings you upstairs to the loft and a second wet bar. Three bedrooms each have a private bathroom and walk in closet, and two rooms enjoy French doors to the covered porch.  The exercise room with tray ceiling could double as a guest suite.
