SPECTACULAR home with DIRECT, DEEP-WATER access on a private canal! Dock your boat in the back yard of your home, just steps away from the backdoor. This 5 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath + study home was designed with a wealth of recovered architectural treasures & classic details. The designer was W.A. "BUD" Lawrence, who specializes in French and Spanish architecture, imbuing the home with a feeling of ageless beauty. Beginning at the front gate, an authentic plantation"sugar pot" fountain welcomes you. Interior design details continue with hand-rubbed, reclaimed cypress cabinetry throughout the home, heart pine beams and floors, antique Chicago brick hallways, and cypress French doors opening on the front and back courtyards. In addition, there are antique newel posts at the staircases, Victorian pine doors in the study, powder room, and pantry. The master bedroom boasts a pergola-style deck with a "morning kitchen" for the first cup of coffee or the evening glass of wine. The veranda off the family room with its beautiful custom fireplace, opens up in good weather to extend the home. Truly ONE OF A KIND elegance! Updated to "Miami Dade" hurricane standards.
