The Texas Monthly Gulf Coast Show Home at Cinnamon Shore is more than a spectacular, three-story model home. This 3,900 square-foot showplace is a move-in-ready masterpiece that epitomizes this New Urban community in Port Aransas, Texas. “The Show Home was designed and built with Cinnamon Shore’s mission in mind: to bring together multiple generations in a place where they’ll long to return,” says Jeff Lamkin, developer of the Gulf Coast’s premiere, New Urban community.
The Perfect Location
Showing its readers the best of the Gulf Coast lifestyle, Texas Monthly partnered with Cinnamon Shore, a master-planned development that feels like small-town America at the beach. The Show Home rises with a crisp, sail-white exterior across from the community’s Great Lawn and just a stroll away from the beach. Architect Bill Davies of Davies Collaborative says the pure white exterior allows its coastal cottage vernacular to shine – from exposed brackets and exterior rafters to a central tower that nestles into the gabled roofline.
The home’s architecture is timeless yet the home is state-of-the-art, and because it’s clad in durable LP® Smartside® Siding and Trim, it promises longevity. Climate-tested in Hawaii, this durable siding has the look of real wood grain, and it’s engineered to resist moisture and termites, high-impact damage, and heat damage. On the Show Home, the horizontal lap siding on the lower level nods to classic beach cottage style from a generation ago, but it offers longlasting curb appeal.
