Interior design offers worldly views
Written by: Abby Weingarten
Located on an idyllic peninsula with a back yard facing the Intracoastal Waterway, John and Nedra Greene’s Belleair Beach home would make the perfect primary residence—as soon as it underwent a complete design overhaul. The Greenes, who also own a home in Indiana, had purchased the Florida house at the end of 2009. They were preparing for retirement, which they are now fully relishing. “The house was one of those classic short sales that had occurred at that time, so it was a new property that had not been completed in its entirety,” John says. “Our back yard is the Intracoastal and, one block out of our front door are Gulf views, so it really is the best of both worlds.”
