More than anything, a beach house should be “fun.” And while this one in Anna Maria may seem a little extravagant for that laid-back island, it’s “fun” extravagant. You wonder what surprise is coming next.

The whole place is a riff on luxury lifestyles, circa 2014. Everywhere you look your eye is grabbed by rococo drama, with enough flourishes for the Kardashians and the Real Housewives put together. A few examples:

The mysterious “white room.”

If all the visual splendor isn’t enough, there’s always the location. It’s set on a large lot, almost an acre, at the coveted north end of Anna Maria Island—which many locals consider the best beach in the area. The façade is Med. Revival but rigorously controlled. It almost suggests a town house in Paris.

And the views from the various terraces are spectacular.
