Home on the Bay 

-Liesel Schmidt 

“We have been asked several times, ‘What part of the home did you remodel?’ shares Israel Crocker of Crocker & Smith Custom Builders. “This is a testimony to the attention paid to the details of the iconic area in which this home is located. The home is completely new, but when you see the landscaping, architecture, and the way the home rests between old live oaks, you would assume that it has been there for many decades.” 

Finished in February of 2024, the home was designed by Historical Concepts of New York and Atlanta and built by Crocker & Smith Custom Builders. It boasts 24 rooms in its one and a half stories, and the main house is 6227 square feet. The home is attached to a garage by a breezeway. The architectural feel is of the classic bay house, and the exterior is homogenous with the boardwalk south of the nearby Grand Hotel Golf Resort & Spa.

The interior, designed by Heather Chadduck of HCID in Birmingham, brings the exterior aesthetic within its many spaces, with attention to every detail. The radial staircase and the faux finish of painting on the floor in the entry add to the nostalgia of the home. Also of note are the heart pine walls and cabinetry of the library, the hidden door of the powder room, and an elegant Bay sitting room. The large, open spaces of the family room share a passthrough serving bar into the kitchen. 

The team at Stone Gallery worked with the designer and homeowners to select natural stone surfaces befitting the home. Marine Black Soapstone was used on the perimeter surfaces of the kitchen, and the center island countertops were created of Calacatta Oro Honed. The master bathroom boasts Calcutta Oro. The library and living room fireplaces also showcase beautiful natural stone materials.
