A grand masterpiece, this gorgeous custom Mediterranean style gated estate combines fine craftsmanship and skillful design. Sited on three highly-desirable lots, the 9,100 square foot residence is in an enviable position in a quiet coastal setting discreetly tucked off Highway 98 in Miramar Beach, Florida. Central to the very best of the Emerald Coast, both Destin's vibrant harbor and the relaxed sophistication of South Walton are only moments away. Even closer, dedicated beach access, which is readily available down a dead-end lane and with no major roads to cross. Gulf breezes scented with magnolia blossoms can be relished throughout the immaculately maintained grounds or from one of four large Gulf view balconies. Outdoor living is divine with a 24' x 13' heated pool, waterfalling hot tub, and a pool house cabana - outfitted with a Thermador gas grill, mini-fridge, wet bar, indoor storage area, and a full bathroom.
The sprawling brick paved motor court is accented with three separate garages and leads to a grand entrance with soaring double height columns. This three-story home is comprised of six bedrooms, 5 full baths, and 3 half baths and is uniquely designed for multi-generational living. Created with the intention to facilitate multiple families under one roof, this property hosts three separate living areas, two kitchens, three laundry rooms (one on each floor), and an over sized billiard room outfitted with a wet bar, ice maker, and wine fridge. A portion of the home can be completely closed off to create attached separate living quarters for in-laws, a live-in nanny, or a wealth of other possibilities.
On the second floor and accessible via a private residential elevator off one of the garages, two interior staircases, or an exterior staircase decorated with Talavera tiles on the risers is the principal living space. The den is centered on a gas fireplace and a built-in flat screen television, discretely concealed behind an elegantly framed retractable oil painting. Nearby an electronics closet houses components for the entire home audio (inside & out), security, Lutron light, and intercom systems. Adjoining this space, a gourmet kitchen contains maple custom cabinets, granite counter tops, dual islands, double ovens, double drawer dishwashers, Sub-Zero refrigerated drawers, top-of-the-line GE Monogram Refrigerator, pot filler over a gas cook top, walk-in pantry, bar, and a kitchen dining area. The formal dining room is anchored on a Schonbek crystal chandelier and features a Romeo & Juliet balcony with views overlooking the grounds of the compound and the electronic security gate with a camera, intercom, and remote. Also on this level, ancillary living, kitchen, and dining areas.
Crowning the castle, a massive master suite on the third floor boasts a soaring vaulted ceiling, fireplace, sitting room, breakfast bar, and built-in computer workstation. The over sized closet is replete with custom cabinetry and a safe. The master bathroom features a large walk-in shower with three heads and a body sprayer as well as a soaking bubble tub, dual vanities, and a lovely chandelier. Also off this suite is a private study with a balcony and captivating gulf views.
Additional amenities include hurricane shutters, high impact windstorm certified windows, French doors, wood plantation shutters, custom drapes, central vacuum system, 8' to 10' ceilings, crown molding, barrel terracotta roof tiles, well with Rain Bird sprinkler system, exterior gas lanterns, citrus trees, and decorative fountains.
