Cinnamon Shore and Texas Monthly Unveil First Ever Gulf Coast Show Home
The first ever Texas Monthly Gulf Coast Show Home, a collaboration between Texas Monthly and Cinnamon Shore, a pedestrian-friendly planned community nestled behind 300 feet of protective dunes, opens to the public for home tours beginning Memorial Day through Labor Day. A percentage of tour ticket proceeds will benefit Animal Rehabilitation Keep (ARK) at University of Texas Marine Science Institute (UTmsi) and Cinnamon Shore Giving Fund. Located at 200 Round Road in Cinnamon Shore on Mustang Island, the property is minutes away from Port Aransas and Corpus Christi.
“The Texas Monthly Idea House is all about inspiration,” said Jeff Lamkin, Principal and Developer of Cinnamon Shore. “Idea House Tour goers will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the Mustang Island experience and lifestyle.
Cinnamon Shore and Texas Monthly are shining a light on the warm and welcoming Texas Coast with the development of the Texas Monthly Gulf Coast Show Home that highlights the unique advantages to owning a home in a community-driven, family-friendly beach environment. Cinnamon Shore offers first-class amenities including beautiful groomed beaches, pools, parks, stocked lakes, restaurants, kid’s camps, live music in the Town Center and more. A designated concierge offers homeowners scheduling services to the endless activities available on Mustang Island.
The multi-generational vacation home boasts clean lines, simple massing and understated, yet meticulous architecture, like the two-story wrap around porch that allows social interaction with the community, as well as privacy; thanks to innovative wood screens that open and close. Combining classic building traditions with cutting-edge design and furnishings, the show home features sustainable interior and exterior building products that maximize new technologies. The main living space is on the second floor, with gathering space in the kitchen and family room, where timeless light fixtures in classic designs from Circa Lighting add panache and focal points within the soaring space. A third-floor suite guarantees a little peace-and-quiet, and a stairway and reliable, space-saving unit with custom designed interiors from D&D Elevators, Inc., provides easy access to this getaway retreat. Downstairs, a kid-friendly bunkroom opens to a second living space, and a nearby bedroom allows adults to keep an eye on things. Sliding barn-style doors offer additional privacy and epitomize the home’s hand-hewn character. Helping oversee the home from afar, the Carrier® Côr™ Home Automation System allows remote monitoring through a mobile app—an added level of security for such a well-designed home.
With interiors by celebrated designers from Brewer Designs, the custom-built home will be a private sanctuary with all the modern comforts and conveniences offered. The home is designed by Austin based Architecture firm Davies Collaborative, and built by Legacy DCS. Davies Collaborative is known for creating distinctive, sustainable architecture that fosters community and maximizes energy efficiency. Legacy DCS is renowned for developing green homes and green communities by using sustainable building practices and earth-friendly products. The home design was certified platinum by the Coastal Bend Green Built sustainable building initiative, the highest level of compliance.
