This Bayview Drive residence is the epitome of a modern tropical home. As soon as you get to the steps leading to the entrance, the peaceful waterfall sets the tone for what you’re about to experience. The home features six bedrooms, five full baths, one half bath, a home theater, office space, gym, 20-foot ceilings and more. The two-story home is situated on a 16,707-square-foot lot and has views of Seminole Lake.
Once you step in from the large wraparound driveway (that can accommodate 15 cars), the luscious indoor garden immediately stuns by trickling light in through the second floor and the ceiling.
On that note, there is natural lighting coming from every direction of the home – from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room, to the endless light coming from above the indoor garden, to the terraces attached to all the second floor rooms. In addition, the wooden elements emphasize the nature aspect like the solid wood doors and the whitewashed oak wood flooring upstairs.
Outside, lush landscaping surrounds the back outdoor space around the infinity pool and deck. Of course, the views of the lake don’t hurt. The 7,550-square-foot home houses environmentally sound technology such as a smart automated system equipped with control 4 technology, an electric car charger and solar power system.
The open space concept used for the living area, kitchen and dining room invites views that you can enjoy while entertaining guests, cooking or simply enjoying a night in. The kitchen area features Miele appliances and a wine cellar with built-in wine racks.
As for the bedrooms, each closet includes custom cabinetry but all the upstairs rooms have walk-in closets. The master features a grand terrace overlooking the pool and lake; a master closet (with windows) leads you to the master bath. The large ensuite features a floating tub and everything else doubled – the sinks, toilets, etc. The flooring and the large walk-in shower features a beautiful Calacatta gold stone to set the romantic, soft tone.
If you love a good master (like the one mentioned above) then you’re in for a treat with this second “mini” master suite across the hallway. It has a large ensuite equipped with a walk-in shower and floating tub. Plus, there’s a wraparound balcony facing the front of the home.
A surprising but equally satisfying feature is the gym on the second floor that includes a window overlooking the living area and lake – really taking advantage of the views the home has to offer.
You’ll be able to fully enjoy the views, lush landscape and fresh air from the outdoor patio that features an outdoor kitchen with grill, bar and refrigerator, lounge area and infinity pool. The powered dockage can fit a 50+ foot vessel if parked perpendicular to the sea wall where you’ll have ocean access with no fixed bridges.
