The property is lushly landscaped with mature trees and plantings, and enjoys a 271 foot long deep water seawall with plenty of room for large and small watercraft, along with two boat lifts. The exterior of the home, Mediterranean in feel with Columbian Clay roof tiles, has more than 2,000 square feet of outdoor living spaces, including the bayside terrace beside the 17’ by 29’ infinity edge wall pool and heated spa.

A marble floored foyer leads to the large master suite with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass windows, travertine floored terraces, den and two walk-in closets, as well as its own HVAC system. The master bath’s Esmerelda Brazil turquoise details are stunning, and perfectly complement the bay waters seen through the expansive windows.
