Presiding from its singular location on the Intracoastal Waterway, the immediate impression is of being on your own island. With an unbroken expanse of deep water to the west and the marsh embracing the southern and eastern boundaries, the setting is inspiring. Designed and built by the owner, the custom residence was constructed to exceed residential building codes and after a lifetime of waterfront experience, every detail was carefully considered prior to implementation.

The result is a 3,884 square foot home entirely oriented to the outdoors, with views from every vantage point and 1,700 square feet of porches running on three sides. At ground level, there is covered parking for 12 cars and you can take the elevator or stairs to the entry level on the second floor. From the glass front doors you look straight across the house which appears to be floating on the water. Brazilian teak floors catch reflections of sun on water and create prisms of light that dance around the rooms. The gathering rooms are generous and laid out on either side of the house with a wide walkway from front to back. A kitchen for serious cooking offers everything you want and then some, with a long working bar that adds additional seating. A casual dining area opens to a wraparound porch that takes you all around the house. Formal dining is across from the kitchen for ease of flow and the great room and living room are directly behind kitchen and dining so you can host as large or intimate a gathering as you desire. An office and full bath complete the main level.

Teak stairs with an original wrought iron banister take you the sleeping quarters on the top floor. The same wide walkway separates the guest rooms from the master and you look across the house to a large circular window framing the sparkling water outside. A small sitting area with a porch facing east looking over the marsh is a sweet spot to catch the sunrise while you check your email and the news. Two bedrooms flank a lovely bathroom on the north side and the walkway to the master is lined with built-in shelves to house your library and showcase your collections. A private living room off the master is currently in use to entertain grandchildren, but the use is up to you. With a fireplace and small porch, it’s a comfortable space. The master bath is something to behold and enjoys radiant floor heating under the travertine. All in all, it’s exceptional waterfront living.
