barrier islands and bustling cityscapes. The home, art and décor have been lovingly maintained and occupied only two weeks a year by the current owners. Entering the Bella Vista floorplan from your private foyer by elevator, a wall of glass and sliders opening to the primary terrace provide indoor-outdoor living and accentuate soaring ceilings capped in crown molding, tile floors and lit built-ins. A gas fireplace is enjoyed in the great room and dining space for ambiance. Opposite the dining space is the barely-used gourmet kitchen featuring Dacor appliances including a six-burner stove, double built-in ovens, steel vent hood, granite counters, tile backsplash, French door refrigerator, wood cabinetry and breakfast bar overlooking a dining nook that allows access to the terrace for an alfresco experience. Today’s needs for optimal space, form and functionality are met with three guest suites with organized closets where one has access to the terrace, one has a private terrace, and one has pristine views and any of the rooms can be fashioned as an office or hobby space. Practically floor-to-ceiling windows in every room are adorned with double blinds and shades for energy efficiency to reduce heat. Thoughtfully planned storage closets throughout the home maximize convenience with built-ins and organization as well as a large laundry room with Maytag washer and dryer. The primary suite is a tranquil retreat in its own wing showcasing a wet bar with cooler, sitting area, double custom closets, a private media room and terrace, and opulent en-suite bath with a Jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower. Included in the home are eclectic art pieces of oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings, prints and engravings, bronze, brass and glass sculptures, and Scandinavian and assorted European furniture that will beautifully add to your existing collection or offer a considerable return on investment by selling or donating to local art dealers. A private three-car garage with car lift, additional parking space, and locked storage unit are also included in this penthouse.
