PRODUCT DESIGNSingle Family Homes Builder $5,000,001 - $7,000,000 Private Residence
This spacious four-bedroom coastal home with multiple gables and roof lines is a beautiful presence sitting at the end of the cul-de-sac in leafy Pelican Bay.
The breezy coastal feel is evident in the carefully considered architecture. Crisp white touches of board and batten stucco, louvered shutters, custom corbels, along with standing seam metal roof, and white Eden Coast garage doors lay the groundwork for this island-styled home.
The pie shaped property is deceivingly large, allowing room for 5,960 SF. under roof and 4,495 SF under air living space.
Separate paver driveways lead to garage entries on each side of the residence. A winding sidewalk meanders beyond the shell-stone paver front porch and up to the front entry, where you are greeted with impressively large 10’ high custom iron double French doors with transoms.
The Foyer’s vaulted ceiling with nickel-gap tongue and groove painted wood beams, and white paneled walls sets the tone for the serene Zen feel that inspires the entire home.
Designed to overlook the outdoor living space, the living, dining, and kitchen areas enjoy expansive views through a wall of 10’ high French doors with transoms and a 20’ wide x 12’ high pocketing sliding glass door. Adding a casual elegance to the living room, the ceiling detail is coffered with nickel-gap tongue and groove planks and painted wood beams. A white haze etched floor to ceiling marble wall with gas fireplace anchors the living area.
An impressive cook station with a 54” custom metal-trimmed wooden hood anchors the kitchen at the opposite end of the main area. Custom maple wood cabinetry painted white compliments the adjoining wet bar cabinetry made from stained white oak. A large 9’x6’ Cristallo Quartzite stone island is a gathering point that centers the kitchen. Large raw white oak wooden beams provide natural elements to this vaulted open space.
The white oak hardwood floors throughout give a relaxing warmth, playing off the shades of blues and greens from outdoor views seen from every room. The homeowners’ request for plenty of natural light was achieved.
A private corridor leads to the primary bedroom, bathroom, and separate his and her closets. Tucked away, this airy retreat encompasses over 500 sq. ft. Vaulted ceilings, painted wood beams and large picture windows allow the outdoor landscape to color the rooms. A Zen outdoor shower in a private garden setting can be accessed through either the primary bathroom or outdoor living area.
Three additional bedroom suites are oases all their own. Ceiling details, large picture windows, transoms, and trim work in keeping with the character of the home were not sacrificed here or on the separate his and her offices and laundry room.
The unusually shaped lot allowed for a 46’ pool and 8’x8’ spa and a covered 400 SF outdoor living and dining area with shell-stoned pavers throughout. The stacked stone fireplace sits opposite the outdoor kitchen. There’s plenty of lush tropical landscape and grassy lawn the length of the property for outdoor entertaining.
