This architect-designed Arts & Crafts home is stunning! Superb craftsmanship and the highest quality materials are apparent in every detail of the residence. From the moment you walk up the tiled walkway, through the jasmine-covered pergola, into the entry foyer, you are surrounded by fine woods, hand-crafted tiles, custom-built cabinets and period light fixtures. The two story living room is dominated by a coquina stone fireplace, with corbeled wood mantel and custom designed screen. Nestled next to the fireplace is an "Inglenook", a built-in seating area with cushions and storage underneath. An open dining area, surround by glass-fronted cabinets can host large or intimate dinners, while a separate breakfast room, surrounded by windows, offers ever-changing views of Paynes's Prairie. Above this is a private loft, entered from a pull-down staircase, with bead board walls and ceiling, complete with a "captain's bed". The media room/library has additional bookcases and cabinets, with French doors that open onto a private courtyard. The kitchen boasts custom birch cabinetry in a "cloud motif" with cypress trim and several glass-fronted cabinets. Granite counter tops, custom tile backsplashes, a plate rack, and a butcher block island with a Jenn Air gas cooktop, salad sink and pendant lighting add to the functionality and charm of the kitchen. An adjacent walk-in panty has floor to ceiling shelfing and shares space with a stacked washer and dryer. The spacious owners suite has its own gas fireplace and opens onto a private study. The beautifully-appointed owners' bathroom has double sinks, tumbled-glass tile insets in the floor, a large walk-in shower, an enclosed commode and a spacious walk-in closet. At the opposite end of the home are the second and third bedrooms, each with its own custom color scheme and motif. They share the "dragonfly bathroom", so named for its Bradbury and Bradbury wallpaper pattern and beautiful stained glass window. There are wood casement windows throughout the house, oak floors in all of the common areas, paddle fans and hammered copper sconce lighting in most of the rooms and functional clerestory windows that create light-filled spaces and enhance air circulation. An open wood deck provides a perfect viewing spot for the constantly changing life of the prairie, while a screened porch wraps around three sides of the house. The house was constructed of Ytong, an aerated, autoclaved concrete, with a wood-framed second story, to conserve on heating and cooling costs and the lush landscaping is "Florida-friendly", requiring little water or upkeep.
