Directly gulf-front and adjacent to the Natchez Pavilion, you will enjoy completely unobstructed views of emerald green waters, sugar white sand, and the most breathtaking sunsets ever! The first floor, drawn around a sleeping porch and a master king and two queen bedrooms all with private bathroom, projects an air of calm and tranquility. Integrated platform beds and furniture with concealed built-in storage accentuate the design. A private hallway reveals a third queen bed tucked away for extra sleeping space. A “floating” staircase through the home’s central core connects the lower floor to a seemingly infinite second floor.
Once arriving on the second floor, you’ll find a gourmet kitchen with Wolf gas range, Sub Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, and separate bar with sink, large icemaker, and instant hot water. The dining room and living room flow together seamlessly and are framed on both sides with expansive windows and gulf views. A ricepaper-paneled shoji screen accentuates the high barrel ceiling above the stairwell and is backlit to provide a diffuse glow in the evening.
Three sets of French doors blur the line between indoors and out, leading to a large outdoor living room which is also the crowning jewel of this magnificent home. Additionally, there is a laundry room with Miele washer and dryer, beautiful custom maple cabinets providing plenty of storage on both floors, security alarm system. Outside, soft garden lighting illuminates the way from a two-car arbor to the front door.
Designed on the principles of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie style of architecture, this house evokes Wright’s themes of unity, harmony, simplicity, and a respect for nature. Throughout, geometric shapes, soft colors and woods of honey-colored maple banded in mahogany comprise the décor. Its stunning views and architecture immediately piqued the interest of numerous publishers and television programs.
