His love for Rosemary Beach was such that when his son was born, Yip had his birth announcement picture taken on the beach at Rosemary.

"My son Gavin's birth solidified it," says Yip. "The home is a combination of personal and my love for Rosemary Beach. My first time on the property I instantly had an idea of what the plans should be. The house should be narrow and I sketched it out, leaving breathing room on three sides."

While the publicity surrounding the home will make more people aware of Rosemary Beach, Yip is looking forward to settling in outside the spotlight.

"I feel very fortunate and lucky to be at this point in my career and personal life,” he said. "I want to be part of the community, so we may not shoot any more from the house.
