OPEN HOUSE, SATURDAY MARCH 18TH 1-3PM This unique and beautifully maintained Stone Harbor home embodies an artistic approach in both taste and design. A home that is custom designed with fine detail and special features throughout. Situated on the West end of 105th Street you have glorious unobstructed views of 'Carnival Bay', where you can experience unlimited sunset views all while enjoying fresh ocean breezes from the bay to the ocean. Ideally, this five-bedroom, five-and-two-half-bath home is designed on an oversized property South of town, and yet you are within walking distance of pristine white sandy beaches. This coveted part of town is quiet and private, while still not far from first-class dining, shopping, and entertainment that you will enjoy in Stone Harbor’s central business district. With spectacular attention to detail, these original owners have crafted spaces in which world-class artworks can be displayed; these spaces blend into the nature of the home creating the sense of a boutique art gallery. The design of the home incorporates two levels of massive wrap-around covered Brazilian Walnut 'Ipe' decks that present a bold and lovely front entrance. There are built-in flower boxes enveloping the lower deck area that give you the feeling of a cozy outdoor living room. The expansive foyer connects you to an architecturally striking light-filled staircase giving you a sense of grand scale and open space. Downstairs you have a fun family flex room with a beverage center and wet bar, and a screened-in porch for you to relax with an afternoon cocktail. Here you have a large first-floor junior master suite along with two additional oversized bedrooms; one ensuite and one with an adjacent full bathroom. The screened-in porch has its own half bath which provides easy access to the pool area. When you meander up the bold dark wood staircase you are met with an expansive open space accented by a unique lighting sculpture inspired by Stone Harbor’s delightful beach lifestyle. Beyond you are meeting for the first time a vast light and sun-filled public space, featuring architectural window elements which create an openness unmatched on the island. Gracious vaulted ceilings and distinctive design elements make this a lovely place to enjoy your personal time and also to entertain family and friends. The enormous kitchen island has built-in storage, and beyond the kitchen is a convenient walk-in pantry with countertops for plugging in appliances. You have two dishwashers, upgraded appliances, and a powder room just off the kitchen. Your second-story deck is nothing less than magnificent with Ipe Brazilian walnut decking and excellent protection from the elements with the strategic roof overhang. Upstairs you have a very large grand master suite that opens up to a lovely sunrise deck. Just to the right of the grand master is one more ensuite bedroom. This home is fully loaded with ample storage, an enclosed dumb-waiter with three stops -1.driveway, 2. mud/laundry room, and 3.kitchen) Out back you have a charming outdoor garden sanctuary, a gracious pool with built-in sundeck and an outdoor cabana/kitchen with eating area and natural gas and cable hook up. Ipe decks continue throughout the entire pool area. Take full advantage of Stone Harbor Beach living as there is truly no other home on the island like it.
