First Floor: Mahogany double doors introduce the two-story foyer detailed with fine moldings and warm Brazilian cherry floors which continue throughout this level. Intracoastal Waterway views open through the wide central gallery entering the elegantly molded living room which centers on a cast stone fireplace and flows through light-filled French doors to the waterside porch by the pool. Also opening its doors to the waterside porch, the handsome mahogany-paneled library is warmed by a marble-faced fireplace and provides a full bath which doubles as the cabana bath. Across the gallery, the elegant open dining room is designed for gracious entertaining with an adjacent butler's pantry that connects in the custom-designed chef's kitchen with crisp white cabinetry, granite counters, a Wolf gas range, Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, dual Miele dishwashers, and Miele warming drawer. Opening to the poolside porch and sweeping water view from two sides, the combined family/breakfast room with built-in media center is served by an adjacent wet bar and powder room which are also accessed from the gallery.
