Graceful, perhaps, best describes a Coconut Bay Construction home. There’s an ease of minimalism, transitioning from kitchen to master suite, to dining and family rooms. The firm’s bold designs are affirmed with craftsmanship and strong curb appeal.

And while the Cape Coral market is quickly becoming hot in the $400,000 and up range, it remains defined by individual taste and certain architecture that appeals to waterfront buyers, Europeans with more classic expectations, Midwesterners seeking more practical efficiencies and darker tones, for instance.

Leading the modern trend locally in new construction style and quality is the team at Coconut Bay Construction. Owner and president Matt Krupka wanted a different style of home from the ordinary Mediterranean do-over project. “It’s hard to hide my passion for building,” Krupka says. “Our clients appreciate a builder that pays close attention to detail and truly wants each home to be a showpiece for them, not just construct a cookie-cutter house.”

Boutique custom building best describes the philosophy at Coconut Bay Construction. Considering that most clients are from out of state, or the country for that matter, the company’s approach is to walk through each step of the process, Krupka says. What that means is that instead of the landscaping being installed without owner input, for example, clients visit a landscape architect or pool builder’s showroom to help ensure exact choices. Just finding these locations can be a challenge for overseas customers, which is why translators are available.

It’s easy to see the high-quality craftsmanship displayed in their projects―truly unique items such as suspended bathroom vanities with working drawers or hidden hurricane roll-downs on the lanai. The feel of the home is fresh and airy, not the typical cold feel that past contemporary homes might feel like. “We have a lot of German and Swiss customers, and being a former restaurateur helped me to recognize that people have other needs in building other than just constructing the home,” Krupka says.

Coconut Bay’s model in the Cape is at 1608 Beach Parkway West. Details are at coconutbayhomes.com.
