Steppingstones lead you to the entryway of the whimsical palace that sits on the Intracoastal. The stones, meant to invoke the entrance to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater, float on a pond that sets the tone of tranquility and peace.
Inside, a 26-foot ceiling towers above you while travertine osso marble flooring sits below. Dominating the view is the staircase built in Italy with Italian glass enclosure and Brazilian cherry steps that hugs a majestic chandelier that looks like a piece of art itself.
The 8,000-square-foot residence has four bedrooms, three full baths, a media/family room, an infinity pool and a finished rooftop terrace. The first floor features an expansive great room where 13.5-foot ceilings allow you to take in the panoramic views. It’s a great space for showcasing artwork throughout thanks to expansive wall space and omnidirectional baffles.
The great room shares a double-sided masonry fireplace for gas or wood with the media/family room. This common area connects the first-floor bedrooms to create a cozy space where the water views also take center stage. Two of the bedrooms share a full bath and access to a walled-in private garden.
The high-end style doesn’t stop there; the kitchen, with its solid teak, grained wrapped aluminum and Brazilian granite counters, was designed by Fendi.
The second floor is entirely dedicated to the master suite, master bath, wraparound balcony and access to the third floor rooftop terrace. The bedroom features surround sound, a mirrored gas fireplace and automated sheers with blackout shades. The master bath is equipped with a chromatherapy tub with air bubbles, shower with 0.75″ Belgian glass, rain shower and body jets, and Brazilian marble.
Once you step outside on the terrace, you’ll think you’ve reached peak views of the water and ocean – but you’re wrong. A hidden spiral staircase with solid teak steps and landing will lead you to the much-anticipated rooftop terrace we keep mentioning. Here, you’ll overlook the four-edge infinity pool with plenty of lounge space, decking material made of travertine paso marble in a herringbone pattern, 100 feet of waterfront and views of Hugh Taylor Birch State Park directly in front of you.
Once you’ve stopped gawping at the view, you’ll notice the rectified porcelain and gas fireplace finished with hand-painted and glazed ceramic tile from Spain.
