Property Description

Craftsman architecture meets Mother Nature at this exclusive one-of-a-kind home with 300' of bay frontage, dock and separate private boat house. Words cannot capture the warmth of this well built custom home, which was lovingly designed as a retreat by the owner, a physicist and engineer by trade. Sitting on a promontory with 300 feet on the Choctawhatchee Bay, the western orientation of this home delivers mesmerizing sunset views across the bay and canals that wrap the home with water on three sides. From the first floor, a commercial grade mahogany-lined elevator provides access to the upper floors, including direct access to the pantry. Also on the climate controlled lower level, there's a two plus-car tandem garage, a vast multi-purpose room, a workshop and a generous guest suite. Ipe' hardwood decks surround the home on all levels, providing a sense of boat-inspired living right on the water. The second floor has a main entrance reached along a hardwood walkway. Rich Brazilian cherry flooring flows through the wet bar with an ice maker, wine cooler and refrigerated drawers. It leads into the magnificent chef's kitchen where the double islands, Sub-Zero appliances, Thermador range, walk-in pantry and granite countertops are outdone only by incredible panoramic bay views. The main living room has a cozy gas fireplace, multiple windows and access to outdoor decks. A magnificent mahogany cupola draws the eye upwards to the two-story ceiling, lantern windows and library on the mezzanine. Teak furnishings extend onto the huge deck and are included in the sale, along with most other furnishings and museum quality artworks. The dining room and keeping room includes a wood burning fireplace with cozy built in bench seating. A spacious laundry, office, three guest suites and a whole-home generator are all part of this commanding bayfront residence, which must be viewed to be fully appreciated. This unspoiled boater's paradise sits on a generous lot with brick paver motor court and a 200-foot dock which has birdhouses and chimneys for encouraging Purple Martins and Chimney Swifts to nest and thrive. This property conveys with a separate parcel on the canal providing a private boat house with two slips. The home shares these pristine natural surroundings with eagles, hawks, pelicans, dolphins and grazing manatees. It's a peaceful waterfront escape, leaving everyday hustle and bustle at the door.
