Overlooking a mainland yacht basin is a spacious modern estate. The five bedroom, five and a half bath main house reaches its wings toward the water as a two-story guest house guards the street access. Upon entering the estate, a Royal Palm Tree lined soccer pitch runs along the driveway to a motor court. Short run staircases raise visitors to an elevated plinth and virtually unobstructed water vista from the front door. The high soaring great room roof cantilevers out fifteen feet on each side while the glass clerestory delicately anchors the roof down giving theappearance the roof is floating.

The outdoor living is connected to the home with two sets of twelve-foot-tall sliding glass doors, expanding the living space outdoors. Green walls soften the area from rigid to tropical as the same wood cladding warms the exterior. The rear elevation features two wings, the primary bedroom wing juts out farthest to catch a view of the open bay and bridge beyond from the pillow. The second-floor wing opposing the bedroom mimics light and dark as the cantilevered wood volume contrasts the white stucco and glass.

The kitchen features a large and spacious ‘L’ shaped island with an elevated eat-in countertop flanking the island to form the last leg ‘U’. Other special rooms in this home are a billiard room and bar, a teen playroom and home theater. A second-floor gym area with balcony allows cycling outdoors. Designed to age in place, the home is equipped with an elevator and showers withbarrier free entry.
