The Lamar House is a classic island style house with bahama shutters, lap cypress siding, exposed rafters and a metal roof. The house located on Santa Rosa Sound was nearing completion during Hurricane Ivan. The Lamar house incorporates an integrated generator located in the garage, lighting arrestor system, 4th level media room that looks out onto the Sound and across the Island to the Gulf. Landscaping by Ken Griffin, and interiors by Tip McAlpin. The Lamar House is tough built and took less damage than the “hurricane proof” house located two blocks away.
