In Florida, you will find an abundance of home styles from which to choose, designed with the climate as well as the South Florida lifestyle in mind. From coastal to southern, Spanish to Mediterranean, modern to classic, you are sure to find the ideal plan for your luxury South Florida dream home. Generally, homes in South Florida feature concrete block or ICFs (Insulated Concrete Forms) to ensure not only safety from tropical weather systems but also to insulate against the heat. Most Florida homes are built without basements to avoid water or storm damage. Among the most popular homes in South Florida, you will experience a perfect blend of Southern charm and Mediterranean appeal.

Inside South Florida homes you will find expansive open floor plans and high ceilings along with complementary outdoor living spaces like lanais and patios.

Dining rooms with attached living rooms create the ideal spot for formal entertaining. Owner’s suites include generous bedrooms, sitting areas, and en-suites. Guests’ and children’s bedrooms with attached baths complete the luxury homes of South Florida.

The Building Process

As in most localities, the state, county, and city have guidelines which must be followed during the home building process. For your new home, the first step is finding the ideal property for your new home. If you dream of a coastal property, the search may present a challenge, as those parcels are always in high demand and short supply.

Take some time to find the ideal contractor for your home by asking for recommendations, seeking out reviews, and exploring contractors completed projects. Your contractor will estimate the cost of your build by reviewing your home’s blueprints, see that all building codes are adhered to, walk you through the entire building process, and be your point of contact every step of the way.
