The second-floor den of this waterfront estate features pocketing sliding doors providing views of scenic Doubloon Bay, an enhanced connection to a relaxing balcony and a handsome home office – all among the top features sought by the changing lifestyle and needs of today’s homebuyers. Designed as a one-of-a-kind luxury model home, the estate sold while under construction to buyers looking for expanded outdoor living and an idyllic work-from-home space.  
The floor plan highlights open flowing spaces and natural sunlight which is enhanced by two walls of moving glass – room-spanning sliding glass doors to the balcony and innovative Viva Porte glass doors on the opposite wall. The ceiling-mounted metal-framed doors create a glass wall between the den and an adjoining sitting room positioned in a sunny loft overlooking the great room through the glass-railed staircase. The Viva Porte doors visually expand openness while physically extending the clubroom into the sitting area in a seamless transition.  
Designed for entertaining and work, the den is enveloped in textural wallcovering and rift-cut oak accented with reglet channels, the latter also accenting the ceiling. Two coiled brass and black pendants illuminate a desk and a sitting area with four cream-colored upholstered armchairs and a contemporary glass-topped coffee table. The chair grouping and desk introduce dark undertones, enjoy views of the bay and face a large TV above a floating custom console with a rich dark finish. Custom built-in etageres are positioned on each side, displaying objects and sculptural pieces, some with brass finishes. Art and accents introduce burnt orange and bold patterns. 
Rift-sawn cabinetry on the opposite wall cleverly conceals the door to a walk-in closet and a private full bathroom with a floating vanity and wallpaper depicting vintage-attired golfers teeing off.
