Nautilus Homes is honored to be collaborating with William B. Litchfield Designs, Inc., of Atlanta, in the design and construction for one of our current outstanding projects: “Southern Charm” — a 5,500-square-foot private residence situated along the beautiful Manatee River in Ellenton, Florida. Litchfield Designs was recently awarded two prestigious Philip T. Shutze Awards from the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, Southeast Chapter, one award for its Regency-inspired Georgian renovation of a single family home in Buckhead, Georgia, and another for a smaller remodel project.
“We’re thrilled to be working with an architect of Bill Litchfield’s renown and caliber on one of our projects here in Florida,” said Ryan Perrone, president of Nautilus Homes. “Bill’s sensitivity to site conditions, clients’ desires, materials, and period detailing is perfectly suited to our own vision at Nautilus Homes, and it’s a privilege to collaborate with his firm on ‘Southern Charm’.”
Designed to capture the essence of the architecture and lifestyle of Charleston, South Carolina, “Southern Charm” is carefully sited to take full advantage of the property’s expansive 7 acre grounds that extend to the shores of the Manatee River. The home is detailed to recreate historic craftsmanship and features a separate pool house and water’s edge gazebo. In the planning stages of this project, Ryan Perrone and members of his construction team traveled through South Carolina, visiting some of the oldest, grandest estates and plantation homes in our country, including Charleston’s famous Drayton Hall.
Nautilus Homes was also recognized recently with a “Home of the Year” award for its own work on an historic renovation project in Sarasota’s historic Burns Court neighborhood. SRQ Magazine cited Nautilus Homes as being one of the Sarasota Florida top home builders who “pulled out all the stops” in their work in the magazine’s annual design competition.
