Cinnamon Shore is in the news!

Bloomberg Television interviewed our very own Jeff Lamkin, developer of Cinnamon Shore and CEO of Sea Oats Group, about how our community fared well during Hurricane Harvey as well as how it’s prepared for storms to come.

Lamkin says that thanks to modern-day building codes and the quality construction at Cinnamon Shore, the community survived practically unscathed. He’s more confident than ever that homes here can stand up to future storms, too. “Our highest sales have happened since [Harvey] and our sales volume has increased because people are able to see what withstood the storm and what’s still standing,” Lamkin says.

When Austin Architect Jim Kissling was thinking about the floor plan for La Ola, a newly listed property at Cinnamon Shore, he thought about the way most people use their vacation homes. “Especially on vacation, people always gather around the dinner and living spaces. They aren’t going to sit in a room by themselves,” he says.

That’s how he came up with the terrific floor plan that allows plenty of privacy and lots of places to gather and visit in this three-story beach cottage, ringed with porches. He combined a state-of-the-art kitchen and living room to create a stunning place where the families and friends who spend time here will naturally want to congregate.
