Elegant features and meticulously vetted finishes create a luxurious yet exceptionally livable ambiance in this magnificent lakefront home. As one steps through a double glass entry door into a wide foyer with three fabulous lighting fixtures, 5-foot by 10-foot porcelain tile panels that run up the walls on either side and across the floor, and a spectacular see-through view of the lake, the elegance of this home is unmistakable. Clean-lined tray ceilings provide a sculptural addition that delineates the different living spaces. A color palette of soft creams and taupe’s with soft teal and metallic gold accents plays against wide plank, soft wood flooring with an oil-rubbed finish. To bring warmth to the home’s expansive living areas, the designer created elegant soft textures. Every texture in every space, every piece of furniture, every pillow or piece of tile, and every drapery is intended to elevate the design. Whether in the multiple seating and dining spaces, or the double island kitchen that features high-gloss touch-latch white cabinetry, quartzite counters, and an entire wall covered in 3-inch by 12-inch glass tile, every space celebrates views of the lanai, pool, and lake. The same tile extends up the back wall of a 112-inch wet bar. For the headboard wall in the master bedroom, the designer created upholstered panels separated by pieces of mirror. The bedroom presents soft creams and taupe’s with metallic gold threads in the accent pillows. A beautiful lighting fixture featuring cascading glass lilies provides a design highlight that is repeated in the contemporary master bath. An asymmetrical tub and a huge walk-in shower with body sprays and a rain head faucet contribute to the bath’s spa-like feeling. A massive outdoor living area reinforces both the elegance and casual feeling of the design. Green spaces soften the area around the spa. One of the two living areas includes a fireplace and a dramatic stone wall. A bar and grill area on the opposite side of the lanai features six barstools and a wall finished with granite. The entire outdoor setting offers a place to relax and enjoy the lake views.
