Initially, the Hobbs intended to buy a pre-built home but could find nothing that met their needs in a convenient location or featured beautiful views with no detracting features like power lines nearby. They fell in love with Palmilla Beach at first site and rave about the incredible planned community, its staff, and the natural beauty of its exquisite grounds. Working with Thaxton and Garrett Kypke Builders , and architect Taylor Mauck of Island Architecture , Leigh Ann and Dave wanted a second home that would be a place they could gather with their grown children and their families as well as an investment property. They have both and are thrilled with the results. The architectural style of Palmilla’s exteriors is coastal vernacular with modern lines in watery shades that complement their location perfectly, so the interiors were the most customized element for the Hobbs. On Leigh Ann’s must-have list were a 2-story great room encompassing open kitchen and dining areas with spectacular views, a bunk room with built-in stairs instead of ladders, a spectacular master bath with a freestanding tub,
custom shower, and a digital sound system that delivers music to all outdoor entertaining areas. The magical great room has sky blue ceilings and a unique white wall of art cubbies and oversized television space designed by Christi Farley of Susan Castor Design Studio . It also has white timbered ceilings, a wrap-around balcony, magnificent views, and a gigantic island plus sit-down dining for fourteen. Leigh Ann is thrilled with the results and revels in the view from her chef’s kitchen. The house has 3 refrigerators and a separate wine storage area, while the first floor contains a prep kitchen for convenient outdoor entertaining.
