Southern Living Idea House, Tucker Bayou

WaterSound, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

Located in the Gulf coast community of WaterSound, this 3,544-square-foot cottage utilizes modular construction with 80% of the structure complete upon arrival. A courtyard and covered walk link the garage and home, and eight-foot-deep porches embrace views to the forest landscape and golf course. The kitchen opens onto dining and living areas anchoring the heart of the home. A family entrance features a workroom with clever storage, an island for dropping off groceries, and a pet-feeding center.
