Project Description

AN INCREDIBLE WATERVIEW FROM EVERY ROOM – The owner purchased the original waterfront house for the land, intending to level the structure to build her dream home. However, after conferring with the builder, she changed her mind and decided to preserve whatever they could of the solid parts, and renovate the rest extensively.

Prior to the total demolition of the interior, a large, indoor pool was discovered on the 1st floor. Subsequently, the removal of the pool left a large, gaping hole. So, when the house needed to be raised 10 feet, due to new county codes for waterfront properties, the hole created a challenge.

Temporary support was built to reinforce the front and back sides of the house, so they would not cave in during the lifting process. After the structure was raised, the extensive interior construction commenced.

A simple, yet elegant, open floor plan was designed for both the 2nd and 3rd levels.

The central part of the 2nd floor encompasses the foyer, dining area, living room and sitting area, kitchen/breakfast area, complemented by an incredible waterview from any of the large windows and the screened deck.

The 2nd level Gourmet kitchen is appointed with:

Beautiful Craftsman custom beaded cabinets and drawers, with soft close mechanism, huge Granite topped island featuring: Drawer style microwave oven, built-in shelf space for cook books, Professional chef-style gas cooktop, with down-draft hood and convenient pot-filler faucet, and additional drawers and storage space. (All Stainless steel appliances: Over-sized refrigerator, double ovens and energy efficient dishwasher)

Master Bath on 2nd level is fitted with a heated tile floor, double sink vanity, walk-in shower and separate tub.

The 3rd floor features a large, open play area, comfortable seating, dining area, pool table, piano and adjacent deck. The small kitchen/wet bar area includes an ice maker, wine fridge and dishwasher.
