The famed architect credited with such iconic works as the Sanibel Causeway designed and built this home to be his family residence so it was engineered with an eye for durability and longevity; a fact that can be appreciated when you realize that this home has survived two major hurricanes with only minor damage. Happiness is found in the space where the essence of outdoor living meets the art of interior design. The tropical yard reminiscent of a Balianese resort surrounds this stunning home with a pallet of colorful privacy. Complementing the relaxed resort feel is the large pool with a poolside palapa (open-pool house) perfect for entertaining, enjoying evening meals, or a day of play. In the background are the soothing sounds of water cascading from the palapa’s custom rooftop water feature into the large pool below. The pool is a work of art with a sun ledge and steps that are beautifully adorned with custom, hand-laid tile mosaics. From the moment you walk through the door you have the feeling that this home is truly different. A blend of living as one with nature striking that delicate balance between delighting aesthetics and practical craftsmanship.
