366 Pelican Flight: Intentional Green Living

Posted on Posted in All

Designed by the architect/owner, the home at 366 Pelican Flight was built in 1996 with many principles of sustainable design in place.  The wood is left with natural stains to minimize the upkeep required.  It’s nestled in the forest on Pelican Flight Lane, right across from the beach.

The welcoming front porch gives you a chance to rock in the sounds of the ocean waves and evening breezes.

This is your chance to detox from the real world and unwind on your private island retreat.

Set a tone of togetherness and relaxation from the moment you enter the front door.

The home is designed with gathering spaces in the center, with a kitchen, dining area, and living area.

 

The main living room has the kitchen at one end, with the guest room beyond.

The guest room has its own en-suite bath:

The kitchen is anchored by a unique, custom etched stainless countertop on the island, with stools for relaxed breakfasts.

A lovely circular staircase leads up to the upstairs balcony rooms.

At the other end of the living area, a small hall leads to the laundry room, the owner’s closet, and the master bedroom.

There is a beautiful back deck, which will have even greater views once the Lake Timicau Project is completed.

Upstairs, there are two loft bedrooms, each with an additional crows nest from which you can see the whole greatroom.  Each loft has a curtain that can be pulled closed.
