A 4,300-square-foot jewel graces the western-facing canal, where sunsets reflect down the water, infusing the home with natural light. This reflection casts a spectral scattering on the walls, across polished terrazzo tiled floors, and dancing with exquisite artwork. The corner glass, a less obstructive window design, was strategically incorporated into the primary suite and the second-floor guest master suite. Echoing corner elements are incorporated with pocketing sliding doors to eliminate distractions, ensuring the owner’s uninterrupted view.

The elevation carefully ascends from the street, designed to prevent the home’s massing from overwhelming the streetscape. Stepped roof elevations visually suppress the perceived size and creates dynamic volumes within. A three-car garage, housing a mid-level guest suite, mitigates the bulk of the two-story facade. Meanwhile, the flanking primary suite boasts twelve-foot-tall ceilings and terraces ascending to an eighteen-foot-tall clerestoried Great Room. Horizontal roof lines further contribute to a widening perspective, emphasizing a stacking and layering effect.

The heart of the home, the Great Room, serves as a central hub connecting various spaces seamlessly. It flows into the kitchen, family room, outdoor living area, and the stair spine that spans the four levels of the home. The upper floor hosts two guest suites and a home office, all offering captivating water views. The integration of outdoor space goes beyond operable glass walls, with exterior elements seamlessly transitioning into the interior. The exterior lava stone cladding wraps around the glass corner, becoming a stunning backdrop to the open-riser interior staircase. The exterior wood ceiling smoothly extends into the Great Room’s interior, creating a seamless continuation, with only glass as a subtle separation.
