This outstanding custom estate is situated on 2.3 private acres, with a remarkable 153 linear feet of Intracoastal Waterway frontage – all within the gates of coveted Island Estates.
“The owner left no unchecked boxes with the design and execution of this custom home,’’ said Realtor Ryan Adams, adding that it features nearly 8,000 square feet, including fantastic outdoor living spaces that overlook the pool, gardens and rambling lawn that leads to the deep-water dock.
A long meandering driveway along the gracious front lawn brings the home’s stunning architectural detail and multi-dimensional roof lines into view, just before you pull beneath the stately colonnade.
Enter the home to find a grand waterfront living room, with 21-foot ceilings that tower above a marble fireplace and high transom windows that are perfectly placed to catch the morning sun.
The formal dining and living rooms feature fabulous custom millwork and handcrafted appointments – from heavy crown moldings to a spectacular custom buffet.
The island kitchen, which is ideal for prepping a gourmet meal or entertaining a crowd, opens directly into the poolside great room, with an outstanding wet bar under soaring ceilings. “This space is filled with natural light shining through a wall of glass that overlooks the grounds and the river,’’ said Adams, of Adams, Cameron & Co. Realtors
The incredibly generous owner’s suite is the ultimate private retreat, with a large sitting room, a cavernous closet and dressing area, as well as a phenomenal waterfront bath.
Two ample guest suites offer complete privacy for visitors, and a third suite serves as a dedicated home office and library, with a private patio.
Three sets of French doors access the extraordinary covered lanai, summer kitchen and sprawling screened patio that surrounds the spectacular custom pool. Just beyond, a walkway stretches past the deep lawn down to the waterfront, where a “beautiful dock like no other” is suspended above the Intracoastal Waterway. It features a covered boathouse and lift for a center console or runabout, double catwalks to a spacious covered verandah and a most-impressive deepwater slip that was constructed to accommodate the owner’s 53-foot Hatteras. “The massive dock was permitted due to the unusually wide frontage,’’ Adams explained. “It is virtually a personal marina.”
This amazing estate is being offered for sale for the first time and is priced to sell at a fraction of the replacement cost.
“It’s a stately property, with green gardens and rolling terrain, so that coupled with the fact that you are on a private island, with a manned gate at the base of the bridge, allows for an incredible sense of security,’’ Adams said. “This likely adds to the sense of relaxation, just knowing how incredibly predictable living here is. I mean, nobody is just going to drop by to surprise you.”
