Property description

This striking all concrete 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath, home is located on Deep Sailboat water with sweeping views of Big Bayou and 97 ft of frontage. It is a rare and exceptional example of “TROPICAL MODERN”, a variation of Mid-Century Modern architecture seen mostly in South Florida and Cuba. Extensive updates have made this a 21st Century home in keeping with its rich history and design. The courtyard entryway with its curated gardens and artful walls envelope the home in privacy and serenity. Almost immediately after entering the covered entry, you are greeted by the wide views of the water, pool, and backyard entertaining from the Florida Room with 10’ ceilings and concrete plank beams, Saltillo Tile, a living room Fireplace, and Remote Blinds. Akin to a lighthouse, a two story semi-circular tower with multiple windows houses the dining alcove with a custom made terrazzo table on the first floor and on the second floor is the primary bedroom, topped by a dome of clerestory panes. An updated kitchen designed by Don Strobel in 2018 includes quartz countertops, custom cabinetry, Sub Zero refrigerator, Wolf 5 burner gas stove, Bosch double ovens, warming drawer, and speed microwave. Also on the first floor, a beautiful owners suite includes sitting room and en-suite bedroom combination with organized closets and plantation shutters. Italian Porcelain Tile, an original banister with solid maple stairs leading you to the second floor with Cuban Tile throughout are just but a few of the appointments that make this home so notable. There are 3 Bedrooms and 2 baths upstairs and the main bath has been fully renovated with a large shower and mosaic tiling. There is a workshop and laundry room with new washer, dryer, and freezer and an updated 200amp electric panel. An outside entertainment area with a Sekas Saltwater, Quartztech Trapezoid Pool, Spa, and Concrete Dining Pavilion with gas outdoor fireplace provide a wonderful venue to enjoy the water, beautiful sunsets, good friends and family. Finally, a 60 ft composite dock leads to deep water with easy access to Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. You won’t be disappointed by the finish and design of this one of a kind property.
