Beautiful design pairs with comfortable luxury in this newer Modern Mediterranean estate fronting the deep-draft Rio Le Marne waters in Bermuda Riviera, a quiet, lushly landscaped waterfront neighborhood on the eastern shores of the Intracoastal, set behind a guard-gated entry just off Ocean Boulevard. Custom built in 2009, this architect-designed residence has been carefully kept in nearly new condition. Its architectural charm makes a striking first impression at the entrance, setting the tone for a spacious but inviting living environment that interprets classic style for today. Ashlar-pattern tumbled marble floors, lofty 11+/- foot ceilings, and detailed custom moldings are hallmark...finishes of the four-bedroom home which is also fitted with impact-rated glass throughout. As the focal point, the two-story living room creates a dramatic fireside gathering space that benefits from the natural light and views of the tiered window wall looking south over the pool patio, a relaxing outdoor living/entertaining area poised above the shoreline's reinforced retaining wall, with lush foliage adding to the secluded feel. Open to the chef's kitchen, the family room's casual living space is brightened by French doors to the pool patio, which is also accessible from the first-floor guest suite. Upstairs, a voluminous private wing creates a luxurious haven for the waterfront master suite.
