Elegant, with a New Orleans influence in the exterior iron work, gas lanterns, and courtyard, this custom two story brick home, in a gated waterfront community, was designed with meticulous attention to detail. Virtually any style furnishings, whether transitional, traditional, contemporary or eclectic will be well suited. The foyer piece de resistance is the dramatic curved staircase with iron balustrades and bronze railing that leads up to the living area and master bedroom. The staircase was inspired by a New York Decorator Show House. This custom railing leads to the second floor and accesses the living area and front balcony. The 10' ceilings, 8' transom windows, plantation shutters, recessed lights, extensive crown molding and wide planked, buckskin maple hardwood floors are only a few of the indicators of the quality and upscale features. The second floor living area is an open floor plan that includes living room, dining area, and sitting room for television and a double sided fireplace, as well as an office and the master bedroom. At night, the dining area has the feel of sitting in a treehouse with the light that comes through the oak tree outside. The chef's kitchen has granite countertops, bar seating, maple cabinets, a dove grey farmhouse sink, custom tile backsplash and a walk in pantry for additional storage. The living area makes conversation and interacting with family or friends easy. Three bedrooms and a guest kitchenette make the first floor an ideal place for family and guests to be comfortable. Each bedroom has tall windows, large closets, high ceilings, it's own luxurious and individually designed bath and easy access to the private back courtyard. Just a very few steps away, the community dock provides panoramic views of Pensacola Bay and water access for swimming, boating, kayaking, fishing or watching the Blue Angels. Just minutes away from the fine dining and shops in Downtown Pensacola. A very desirable lifestyle!
