The moment you enter the gates of prestigious Island Estates, you'll notice the harmonious blend of nature, water and architecture. This spacious open-plan home sits comfortably in its spectacular island-lake setting, best enjoyed from the full-width screened Florida room at the back of the house. It's the natural place to gravitate to and unwind, watching visiting ducks and wildlife from sunrise to moonrise. The natural theme continues throughout the home with neutral limestone flooring, bold granite counters and beach tones in the decor. Custom Double doors of mahogany provide a grand front entrance where tall windows flood the elegant staircase with natural light. Soaring ceilings accentuate the cathedral-like living space of this bespoke residence, craftsman/builder, John Willis used bold crown moldings, coffered ceilings, 10-inch baseboards, plantation shutters and solid wood millwork provide further evidence of a finely crafted home. The spacious kitchen lacks nothing with its Butler's pantry, six-burner Wolf gas stove, twin sinks plus chef's prep sink, Sub Zero ice maker and huge island. Wake up to serene lake views through the French doors in the main floor master suite. The second floor reveals an additional master suite, two generous guest bedrooms, an open family room/den and media room. Living in this beautiful home on a private street within Sandestin Golf and Beach Club delivers the best of both worlds: privacy and tranquility on a beautiful lake along with tennis, golf, swimming pools and a marina. Beach access is a natural plus, just a short stroll south, just 200 steps to have your toes in the sand!
