Bonnet Island Estate

Grand Island Estate

Project Overview

With a historic location steeped in natural beauty, the construction of the Bonnet Island Estate needed to pay homage to the past, while providing a bed and breakfast with every modern convenience.  To stay true to the architecture of the great coastal mansions along the East coast, builder Chris Vernon turned to Fypon® to provide the detailed millwork and extensive railing systems that set these homes apart.

For a dramatic look, custom
radius rails with the
Woodruff baluster were
chosen for this balcony.

Return to Luxury

With breathtaking views and a historic legacy the construction of the Bonnet Island Estate was a large undertaking. With the original structure torn down, Builder Chris Vernon built the lavish estate from the ground up.  Every detail was carefully planned to create a luxury bed and breakfast that could host parties, weddings and corporate events—and Fypon® decorative millwork and trim fit perfectly into the plan.

"With 400 linear feet of rail we wanted a product that was easy to install," said Vernon. "The product also needed to be low maintenance and durable, which made Fypon products the perfect choice."

Several styles of moulding were
combined to create a breathtaking
massive crown moulding system.

The exterior and interior of the estate featured multiple Fypon products including custom Radius Rails, Dentil Blocks, Window and Door Trim that fit appropriately with the classic architecture. And with the bay front location, Fypon millwork was ideal because of its resistance to water and insect damage.

"With the custom applications and fast lead times, Fypon worked with us through the entire process," Vernon said. "The finished project is exactly what we wanted. We're definitely happy and so are the guests who visit the estate."
