Inspired and Admired in Lake Park

Behold The Butterfly House, named for its distinctive inverted roof resembling the wings of a butterfly. Peggy Ann, current owner and CEO of Empire Level Manufacturing, has been building unique homes like this across the country, many of which have been featured in national publications. Imagined by award-winning architect Andrea Clark Brown, the home at 1111 12th Street North, Naples, was later reconstructed by Connor & Gaskins Unlimited in 2018 when Ann rebuilt the inverted roof. The property was featured in Gulfshore Life Home in 2020 and the American Institute of Architects and Venice Architecture Biennale in 2021.

Entering this four-bedroom, three-bath incarnation of Neapolitan design history is akin to walking through an art gallery. Notable features include expansive clerestory windows, concealed baseboards, custom Rudy Art glass in the kitchen and engineered oak flooring by the Lauzon Collection. The deliberate absence of trim throughout the home ensures a harmonious and cohesive visual experience. The exterior is surrounded by lush greenery and features a Zen Garden, indoor outdoor spa, fireplace, pool with water feature and custom stone-glass mural, all adorned by hand-mitered Mexican lava rock. The two-bedroom, one-bath guesthouse overlooks the lake.

Roberta Zimmerman in The Village office of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing for $4.5 million. To arrange a showing or for more information, call 614-314-7005 or email Roberta.Zimmerman@PremierSIR.com. ¦

— Although the information about the homes featured here is as current as possible, a property might be off the market by press time.
