Comfortable, casual elegance defines this 3 bedroom + Bonus room traditional home with a sweeping view of deep-water Indian Bayou. Sprawling, open, interior entertainment areas flow through 8-foot atrium doors to the 40 x 12 screen porch with its bar and built-in grills. Serene, gentile, early mornings can be spent with coffee on the porch or sitting on the 5-sided seated area at the end of the 120-foot dock watching for the wild life in the Environmentally Protected Area (EPA). Wild rabbits, river otters, and the occasional pod of dolphins can be enjoyed from both areas, and fishing for Reds and crabbing with traps are a plus! This is the property that forms the curve in Indian Bayou and affords expansive views of calm, relaxing water and passing boats, paddle boarders, canoes and kayaks. Architecturally, the owners designed the exterior for impeccable timelessness and sophistication. Guests are greeted by two 12-foot columns supporting a 14-foot Cooper lined vaulted entryway that carries through to the 14-foot grand foyer. An 8-foot-tall, custom designed Mahogany front door with a Baltic hand forged Satin Nickel door knocker from Hungary makes a luxurious statement. Copper has also been used to roof the dormer window, to clad the tall chimney and for the custom designed weathervane. No construction expense was spared on the difficult to locate, reclaimed and individually cleaned, Old Chicago used brick that brings a subdued sense of history, serenity and stability to the home. The bricks were utilized to design a detailed Chevron stripe around the entire home and front windows. Professional landscaping, brink pavers and walkways, terra cotta urns imported from Impruneta, Italy, and 4 large oak trees were brought in to create a quiet, classic setting. This home has been lovingly maintained. The owner/seller/builder is a Florida State Certified General Contractor and Florida State Roof Contractor.
