A very special waterfront estate, featuring an amazing legacy home that is equal parts beautiful and practical, set on a superb elevation above deep-water Rocky Bayou for maximum enjoyment of the area's best watersports, and located in a family-friendly Bluewater neighborhood! The property enjoys well over 200' on the water and offers a fully equipped dock with boat house, two boat lifts (6,000 and 16,000 lbs.), and three interior moorage slips. Overlooking the water, the huge back patio includes a covered outdoor living area with summer kitchen, a large, heated, saltwater pool and hot tub, a fire pit, and much more--yet the setting is so private, this backyard paradise cannot be seen from the street! The gorgeous home features extensive exterior stonework, a 2-story entrance, walnut floors, thick crown mold, and a soothing color palette. Incredibly practical, the floorplan flows around the eat-in kitchen and connected living room that form the heart of the home. Highlights of the kitchen include a coffered ceiling, copper sink, double convection ovens, abundant cabinet and counter space, stainless Wolf appliances including a 4-burner cooktop and grill and Subzero, a butler's pantry, walk-in pantry closet, and waterviews! The master suite, an additional bedroom suite, and a bonus room (currently a gym) with nearby bath are located on the first floor. A huge family/media room and two additional bedrooms comprise the second floor. This home is packed with conveniences, which include but aren't limited to, a tackle/workshop room, large icemaker for the catch of the day, 3-car garage, Rinnai hot water system, safe room, extensive storage closets plus additional under roof storage, high impact windows and storm shutters. The impeccable planning, designing, and superior execution involved in this stunning property--from the site elevation, hardscape, terracing, and landscaping, to the architectural design, construction, and interior finishes--is readily apparent. The location offers easy access by water to Choctawhatchee Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, and by car to shopping, dining, entertainment, highly ranked schools, quality medical care, and much more!
