Snowmen may be an anomaly on the beaches of Florida, but we know of at least one. Perched on a powdery stretch of sand in Santa Rosa stands country music superstar Luke Bryan and wife Caroline’s four-story beachfront home, which they named “Snowman” in honor of Luke’s late brother, Chris. The moniker references a sport Chris loved—golf—and a funny bit of slang golfers use for scoring an eight on a single hole. 

“Evidently, Chris wasn’t a great golfer,” Caroline says. “Snowman became his nickname. We named our farm Red Bird Farm after Luke’s sister and wanted to honor Chris as well.”

Architect Geoff Chick added a fourth story to the beachfront home.
