New Orleans Chef/Editor expats Michael Sichel and Lisa Tudor collaborated with Architect Eric Watson to create a house with spaces that showcase their notable collection of mid century furnishings. Located on the Gulf side of Florida's Scenic Hwy 30A, the residence reflects the unique character of its wooded hilltop location above a coastal dune lake. Draper Lake Coastal Village was designed in 2003 by town planners Andres Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk (DPZ) with architectural regulations that emphasize a style reminiscent of American forested lakefront homes of the early 20th Century. Standing sentry above the Timpoochee Trail, the bold, dark dwelling contrasts with the surrounding landscape in one of Florida's hottest real estate and vacation rental markets.
