''Every so often Art is created with Brick & Mortar''... Welcome to a grand, gated, residence situated on 220-feet of River to River waterfront. This magnificent home, at the end of a seashell-and-gravel driveway was constructed in 2001 by Custom Home Builder, David Charroux, and designed by award-winning Palm Beach architect, Raphael Saladrigas. The stunning, two-story home on a bountiful 3.41-acre lot, boasts 3,700 square feet of interior space --3 bedrooms, 4 baths, plus a living room, dining room, and game room. Captivating views of the surrounding waterways can be enjoyed from nearly every room in the house. A luxurious West Indies vibe is featured throughout the home with the appointment of exotic wood and bamboo flooring. A first floor game room is the perfect spot to entertain while surrounded by sapele panelling; a coffered ceiling; colorized, polished concrete floor; and an alligator-skin fireplace. Pre-wired for TV and a built in surround sound system make this a Game room, media room, or bonus room all in one. The spacious kitchen is open and airy showcasing classic maple cabinetry, a large prep island, and breakfast bar topped in black granite. At your fingertips are top of the line, stainless steel appliances by Dacor, GE, and Bosch including a 6 burner gas cooktop. Adjacent to the kitchen sits the luxurious, yet casual living room with beautiful built-in shelves and cabinets, dual ceiling fans, a wood-burning fireplace, and a wall of Marvin, high-impact, French doors (replaced in 2012) that invite in tons of natural light and lead out to the backyard. More sapele wood is found on the staircase to the second floor, where you'll find three bedrooms with vaulted, wood-clad ceilings and generous-sized closets. The master bedroom and its office have an expansive private balcony with Marvin French doors, a wood-burning fireplace, and a large closet with attic storage. The other bedroom is equipped with a private balcony as well. All three full bathrooms feature Kohler toilets and fixtures. The sprawling backyard is an extraordinary tropical oasis. With its picturesque covered porch, large lanai, and wood-burning brick fireplace, this exterior space is ideal for entertaining, dining alfresco, and relaxing. Here you're surrounded by a verdant landscape --old growth live oaks, laurel oaks, mangos, and palm trees-- and have direct access to the intracoastal. Steps away is the 300-foot, private dock overlooking Banana River, and on the other side is the Indian River. Additionally, the home features storm protection with its icynene insulation and metal roof. Multiple storage options here including a detached 3-car garage with attic storage and ample space for larger items like paddle boards and kayaks.
