2019 Southern Living Idea House Tours
Crane Island, the low impact, 185-acre master planned community on Amelia Island, is the site of the highly anticipated 2019 Southern Living Idea House.
In collaboration with the developer Crane Island Real Estate, LLC and Atlanta-based architecture and planning firm Historical Concepts, Southern Living has assembled an award-winning team with Jacksonville-based homebuilder Riverside Homes and interior designer Heather Chadduck Hillegas, whose firm is based in Birmingham, Alabama, to bring the vision to life.
Located directly on an Intracoastal Waterway homesite within Crane Island’s luxury 113-home community, the 2019 Southern Living Idea House embodies the Lowcountry lifestyle, the island’s natural beauty and the nearby Fernandina Beach Historic District. The 4,540-square-foot artisan homestead will feature an open floor plan with a spacious kitchen and four bedrooms, including a master suite on the main level, an upstairs bunkroom and a guest suite above the garage.The preservation of century-old trees, optimum breezes and unobstructed views of the Intracoastal Waterway along with frontage on Crane Island’s Alice Park offer a private and tranquil setting. Additional design highlights include a hidden pantry, mudroom, wine bar, elevator and a nine-foot, bi-fold sliding glass wall in the main living space that maximizes waterfront views.
