The entrance foyer is enveloped in tabby stone walls, beginning your journey into exceptional house. Striking glass pendants and antique mirrored ceilings add to the ambiance of the reception room. On the ground level, a guest suite with private bath is joined by a special bunk room with playful Japanese soaking tub and chic media room. Outside of this ground floor suite, a stone terrace with fire pit tapers into a grove of Scrub Oak leading to the shore of Draper Lake. A meticulously detailed iron and wood staircase set against a backdrop of floor-to-ceiling herringbone brickwork leads to the upper floors, as does the adjacent residential elevator. The sunny second floor features a modern kitchen, wine room, Florida room and living room with fireplace. Floor and ceiling treatments designate these generous spaces from one another; a deeply coffered wood ceiling in the Florida room, antique mirror inlay ceiling and wood with stone inset floor in the dining room; and a cathedral, scissor-truss ceiling in the living room conveys both grace and grandeur. An additional guest suite with private bath completes the second floor. The third floor is comprised of a decadent master retreat. Its large sleeping chamber with wood beam ceiling and carved corbel accents features windows that gaze over the entirety of The Retreat to the shimmering Gulf water. A zen bath includes his and hers vanities, impressive dual steam shower and an immense chromatherapy tub. A separate study with built-in desk, cabinetry and gorgeous view provides a serene workspace while a loft library with wet bar can be used to pursue more leisurely activities. A delightfully precarious acrylic catwalk dodges through the scissor-trusses over the living room to a covered porch overlooking Draper Lake and the Gulf. If the main house wasn’t magnificent enough, venture to the attached carriage house with its fully-equipped, self-contained guest residence with full kitchen, living area, bedroom and bath.

Current asking price is 6.750 million for just over 6,000 sqft. 5 full bedrooms, 6 full baths, and 1 half bath.
