This palatial one-story bayfront residence designed by world renowned architect, O'Neil Ford, is ensconced on a colossal site. The magnificent mid-century modern masterpiece boasts an extraordinary and unique private lagoon set against a sprawling "wave" stone wall embedded with thousands of shells from the Gulf of Mexico. The incomparable abstract-shaped swimming pool (a signature of Mr. Ford) is bordered by brick decking in a serpentine, wave-like pattern. Majestic vaulted wood plank and beamed ceilings accentuate almost every room. Exquisitely hand-carved doors and cabinetry are prominent throughout. Most interior walls soar to at least 20 feet and are composed entirely of brick. Almost all light fixtures are one-of-a-kind and were custom made especially for this home. The spectacular open concept living areas are distinguished by hand-made saltillo tile flooring. A dramatic great room, highlighted by a stunning antique art deco chandelier, flows seamlessly into the immense and unparalleled formal dining room. The state-of-the-art epicurean island kitchen is appointed with chic custom Italian Valcucine cabinetry, pro-grade appliances (Thermador and Miele) and a wall of frosted glass multi-paned windows. The grand master suite is graced by a captivating "kiva" shaped fireplace, glorious bay vistas, sensational custom built-in cabinetry and several custom "California" style closets. One extremely large all wood walk-in closet was specifically designed to showcase a shoe and handbag collection and securely stores fine jewelry in a massive safe (included with the home). Adjoining this closet is a large climate-controlled cedar-lined walk-in closet for furs. The stellar "his and hers" separate baths are enhanced by dazzling vessel sinks, a lighted translucent tub, breathtaking stained glass and gleaming bamboo flooring. The loft library is strikingly impressive and features a built-in hand-carved bookcase that runs the length of a long wall. All a divine work of art!
