A perfect place to escape, relax, and unwind as a family away from the hustle and bustle of every-day life, this 4,870-square-foot, four-bedroom, five-bath (and two half baths) home was designed in harmony with its panoramic water views. It also showcases the extensive art collection of the owner. The living room’s neutral colors are punctuated with hues from the sun and sea and art takes center stage in the home’s design.
While the exterior of the two-story home is traditional yet sophisticated, Nury Feria, principal of Design Perceptions Inc., created interiors that are “minimal, modern, clean, and comfortable.”
The owners did not want anything to detract from the views and the art. The living room and kitchen open onto a spacious patio with pocket sliding glass doors. A curvaceous infinity pool with glass walls, dual fire globes, and a 16-foot cascading waterfall overlook the ocean and Buccaneer Island—one of the favorite amenities among Ocean Reef Club’s members.
From the moment you enter through the arched front door, you are instantly transported to a serene, peaceful, and timeless space.
The home was designed as a transitional space, dictated by the style and taste of the homeowner, from traditional to contemporary. The current homeowner has chosen a more contemporary decor so nothing detracts from his art collection or from the views.
The open-floor plan includes a spacious living area, which flows seamlessly into the kitchen, dining, and bar area. Architectural details abound.
The kitchen’s long footprint includes Amazonite granite and quartz countertops, a circular dining room table, and a low-slung wet bar that’s angled out “like a sail” to optimize water views, all while perfectly placed underneath the barrel-vaulted ceiling encompassing the entire length of the room.
On the first floor there are three beautiful bedrooms with en-suite baths. A staircase leads down to an enclosed garage that offers multiple entertainment spaces for kids and family, and numerous teak rolling garage doors open to an intimate backyard and keystone fire pit positioned between the waterfall backdrop and the ocean.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is a study in texture and sultry neutral tones with a wall of windows that open to panoramic water views and a wraparound balcony. The bedroom is also set against an enormous monochromatic triptych by Jennifer Basile on rice paper depicting an Islamorada landscape.
The master bath is decked out in a glistening mosaic tile floor, a Calacatta marble bath, and white linen wall coverings with a crystal chandelier for a glamorous feeling that translates seamlessly from bed to bath. An outdoor shower surrounded by water views completes the incredible master suite.
