Amenities Overview

Handcrafted wrought iron doors from Mexico welcome the visitor who arrives at either main or guest suite entrance.In addition to the main living quarters, the house boasts not one but two master bedroom suites, each with its own bath. A study completes the picture. The guest quarters, as elegant and functional as the main house, provides a suite of two bedrooms with bath as well as a full kitchen.Silver pearl travertine floors shimmer throughout the principal living area, guest suite and lanai. Warm wood flooring graces the master suite, study, and dining room. And the finishing touch: heated marble floors in the master bathrooms.State of the Art KitchenMiele appliances are the starting place for the gourmet kitchen. Custom cabinetry and a walk-in pantry featuring a second freezer make the kitchen as functional as it is beautiful. And the best part: a down-draft cooktop range with an automated ventilation system that sits flush with the countertop and only elevates upon activation.All the Kohler plumbing features complement the home’s lavish interior. The master bath, in particular, features not only a walk-in shower with bench seating but also a bath tub, perched inside a glass enclosure that is in itself “planted” in the master bath garden. A waterfall, cascading over a stone wall, completes the picture.The living room dramatically disappears into the lanai at the flick of a switch! Automated sliding glass doors open onto a sumptuous summer kitchen with a 54” grill with rotisserie and built-in refrigerator trays for marinating food.Once on the lanai, your attention is drawn to the gorgeous pool adorned with a beach entry, tanning shelf, three waterfalls, and a Jacuzzi flamed by a trio of huge bowls of gas-fired flames.

These geothermal units work not only to provide cooling but also to reduce energy bills with the valuable byproduct of hot water.A powered attic lift and a power-retracting ladder round out the efficiency and ease of this home. No more strenuous reaching to access the mechanical/storage room upstairs.
