Taking home Silver and Gold Awards, Sarasota Luxury Home Builder Murray Homes wins in two categories for Summer House, a custom home on Longboat Key's waterfront.

Taking Silver in the highly competitive category of Best Overall Home Over 2 Million Dollars, the John Potvin designed home entitled Summer House brings together modern design, innovation, beautiful natural building materials, and a stunning waterfront location into a fusion of contemporary and coastal design that is uniquely Murray Homes.

Taking full advantage of expansive views of Sarasota Bay, Summer House boasts many modern design features without appearing cold and pretentious. Absolute attention to detail is apparent throughout the home and is exemplified in the uniquely designed staircase constructed of solid exotic hardwoods, sculpted into geometric shapes and supported by a glass railing that gives the impression of floating in the air.

While the lines of the home are firmly modern, the materials and colors serve to keep the interior inviting and warm. Blurring the line between the inside and outside, the heart of the home is it's living space which opens up to the stunning award winning pool area and sweeping vistas of Sarasota Bay.

Winning Gold for Best Landscape Design / Pool / Outdoors, the Summer House takes full advantage of generous waterfront views and Longboat Key location, and offers the homeowners unrivaled outdoor living space.

President of Murray Homes Steve Murray offered this comment about winning the awards, “I am proud of the team at Murray Homes for all they have done to realize the homeowner's vision into an award winning residence.
