Description

Nestled in WaterColor's most sought-after location, this distinctive residence occupies an expansive corner lot and boasts multiple porches offering breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico from its impressive four-story watchtower. Situated directly opposite the beach club and numerous beach access points, the property overlooks the spacious private pool, carriage house, and garage at the rear, all easily reachable via Western Lake Drive. Crafted by architect Dawn Thurber, this luxurious Florida home has recently undergone a comprehensive update, including a new third-floor bathroom, refreshed flooring, and upgraded lighting throughout. Its upscale features include a central vacuum system and floor-to-ceiling impact glass windows. The main living and dining areas are situated on the second floor, strategically elevated for enhanced privacy. The expansive living room features soaring ceilings and multiple French doors leading to 2,400 square feet of covered outdoor living spaces. Additionally, there's a formal dining area and several cozy nooks ideal for quiet moments or intimate conversations. The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen includes a bar for pre-dinner gatherings. With seven elegant bedrooms, king suites on each floor and in the guest house, a generous built-in bunk space, and 6.5 baths, the property comfortably accommodates larger family gatherings, weddings, and luxurious retreats. The private pool area, nestled between the main house and carriage house, provides a serene setting for swimming or unwinding by the woodburning fireplace after sunset. The expansive outdoor kitchen is perfect for hosting barbecues and relaxed dining after a day of activities. Guests can also enjoy panoramic Gulf views from the tower room at sunset. The oversized mudroom, complete with two sets of washers and dryers, custom built-ins, and a designated changing room, caters to the needs of returning guests and renters from the pool or beach. Conveniently located just a short stroll from Town Center shops and restaurants, including Fish Out of Water, and across from the renowned WaterColor Inn, the property offers easy access to amenities such as tennis, pickleball courts, and Camp WaterColor, reachable by a quick bike or golf cart ride. With its exceptional features and prime location, this unique home presents an excellent opportunity for investment income, with rental potential exceeding over $500,000.
