At the end of a cul-de-sac, this home seamlessly blends architectural elements of Spanish design, coastal contemporary and even notes of the French Quarter with its second floor gallery walks, giving you and your guests a fresh perspective from each approach to the house. Framed by a one-acre private point in a nestled inlet on Garnier Bayou, offering 350 feet of panoramic views of the bay, the verdant lawns and crystal bay backdrop will turn your events into experiences. A poolside ringed in palms overlooked by a second floor gallery and sweeping veranda balances the epic and the intimate. The opulence continues inside through French doors and a bank of windows stretching the length of the home-- the light illuminating tray ceilings, high baseboards, crown molding, natural wood and travertine flooring, and a grand wooden staircase. Off of the entryway, a multipurpose space can serve as a formal sitting area or reading nook. The organic flow of the home continues to a formal dining room where natural wood floors lead to a soft archway that transitions into the living room where floor to ceiling windows accentuate vistas of the bay. Custom built-in wooden cabinets and recessed entertainment nook are expertly trimmed. The exposed brick wall in the living room houses a gas fireplace with matching wooded surround and mantel, allowing you to finetune the ambiance you desire. A commercial grade kitchen features two walk-in pantries and semicircle island which serves as a natural gathering place while hosting events or during family time. The sweeping first floor bedroom suite features a walk-in closet worthy of your wardrobe. The master bath has a hollywood style double sink vanity, a rainfall shower with adjustable mood lighting, bidet toilet and jetted garden tub with additional sprayer, all set against the travertine flooring. A second spacious bedroom on the ground floor features plush carpet and another private ensuite bathroom.The large study completes the ground floor and has a full size closet, built-in cabinets and counters. A grand wooden staircase with ornate iron balusters takes you upstairs to a majestic entertainment room (44' x 16.4') adorned with crown molding, a chandelier and ceiling fans. A second floor main bedroom suite has an oversized vanity, with jetted garden tub, separate shower, and water closet. All 3 second floor bedrooms have their own private access to a large gallery overlooking the bay. There is an additional gabled room above the attached 2-car garage of the house with finished walls that can function as a guest apartment, storage or a playroom. Both floors contain their own separate laundry rooms--the first floor laundry has a separate sink as well as countertops and cabinets on 3 walls, plus a half bath. Whether you are looking for a peaceful escape, a resort-like retreat, or a place to lavishly entertain, this home's style and striking views are as versatile as its function.
