About Greg Smith

The renowned New Orleans architect Lloyd Vogt designed this house for us. We supplied him with pictures of houses that we liked and told him that we wanted a liveable house, not a showcase, and that we wanted the master bedroom downstairs and the guest rooms upstairs. We also requested a guest house with garage and office on the main floor; with an apartment above. The Carillon Beach Design Code is so complete that we didn't feel that he needed any further instructions. We were so pleased with his initial design that we didn't ask for any modifications.

Greg Smith purchased this house in 1996

Why Greg Smith chose Carillon Beach Ph X

The house is located on The Promenade and just across the street from the Meeting House. With this location, you go out the back door to the beautiful West Side Pool and out the front door to the beach. We and our guests love the front porch. From the porch we enjoy the Carillon Weddings, Groovin' on the Green and the views of Lake Carillon. When the weather is cooler, we adjurn to the screened in back porch.

What makes this house unique

Casa del Sol has the front porch that is envied by all in Carillon. Many memories and photos have been taken on the wraparound porch. Bring your family and sip on your favorite beverage while you speak to all the walking visitors and neighbors that pass this great home on their daily walks. Don't forget your camera to capture those once in a lifetime photos!

Wonderful location and spacious house with great porches

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect - close to the town, pool and beach. The house was clean, comfortable and quiet. The hammock was a popular spot for all ages. The stained glass window was beautiful. We loved the front porch and spent many hours reading or just relaxing, and listened there to a concert in the park nearby one evening. The back porch was also great. We ate several meals there. Walking and bicycling on the shady paths was a great addition to pools and beach in easy walking distance.

The only downside was the tiny shower stall in the upstairs Jack and Jill bathroom.

The guest house was well equipped and spacious. We had a large group and it gave us a quiet place to get the baby to bed early.
