Stunning, ICF-constructed Mediterranean retreat on a massive 725-ft stretch of waterfront offers unmatched privacy and stately proportion. A long winding driveway, lined with shadowy live oaks, leads the way to a majestic 1.5-acre expanse located at the meeting point where the Choctawhatchee Bay joins Marler Bayou, offering prime water frontage and unique seascapes from two sides. This showpiece's timeless, luxurious interior appointments and opulent outdoor scaping are matched in exquisiteness only by the surrounding natural scenery. A spectacular, visually stirring bayfront oasis features an elevated deck with freeform infinity-edge pool and spa, covered seating, and well-appointed summer kitchen. Each dock - a swimming dock and a protected boat dock - offers deep-water access. Inside, this home is distinguished by its raised ceiling heights with triple-crown molding, decorative tray ceilings, solid Brazilian cherry wood floors, wood custom built-ins, hand troweled walls, arched entryways, and a marble-floored foyer with an inlaid granite compass rose. Views of the Bay and Bayou are given center stage through glass doors that retreat and bow windows that gently curve out for expanded views. The gourmet kitchen features solid custom wood cabinets, granite countertops, double oven, paneled refrigerator, center island, large pantry with a free standing wine rack, and breakfast bar. The master suite, located on the main floor, is a comfortable retreat with morning kitchen, fireplace, sitting area, boutique-style closet, and sliding glass doors that lead to the pool area. A semicircle walk-in shower crowned by a soaring octagonal tray ceiling adds drama to the opulent master bath with custom cabinetry, travertine tile, soaking tub, granite counters, and linen closet. The 2nd-floor billiard room with wet bar, large balcony, game table, and full bath is perfect for entertaining. A murphy bed offers added sleeping space. A 3 ½-car garage and six additional parking spaces accommodate large crowds. This home includes a full study and an office, each with custom built-ins. Of note, the seawall runs along the entire length of the property. Furnishings convey in the sale with some exclusions. This stately waterfront home is just a short boat ride to the East Pass, Crab Island, and the Gulf of Mexico.
