If you have ever traveled down Scenic 30A, you have probably been awed by this 6,900 square foot architectural masterpiece at 208 Paradise by the Sea, nestled in between Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach, Florida. It has an Aladdin meets Star Wars kind of look, which dovetails Moroccan detailing into a sleek, distinctive contemporary style. It is the kind of home you expect to see featured in the latest edition of Architectural Digest or Ocean Home Magazine and is in a word - Magnificent!
This sensational icon graces one-half acre of lush tropically landscaped grounds encased by bright white alabaster walls with a fortress-like tower and curved balcony decks that provide panoramic views of the jeweled gulf.
Dual custom-designed cut out metal gates that resemble crown silhouettes offer entry into the stately grounds. An infinity-edge pool cascades down beside a patio with an outdoor kitchen and wet bar for entertaining. A unique door made from exotic African Rosewood and adorned with colored miniature glass portholes provides entry into this lavish home. The foyer has a floating cantilevered spiral staircase with bubbled sea glass infused side panels that soars up three stories to a dome-topped Gathering Room that showcases an opulent vintage Moroccan chandelier. This home also has an elevator for ease of access.
A dramatic gallery hallway with arching portals along the sides has African Sapele hardwood flooring featuring a chocolate amber color glow created by Italian custom elliptical glass lighting from above.
The adjoining decidedly contemporary open living space includes a dining area, a high-end kitchen, and a circular domed sitting room crowned by another lavish custom Moroccan style chandelier.
The kitchen exemplifies the current state of the arts with imported Bavarian made Bulthaup kitchen appliances, a Gaggenau gas & ceramic cooktop, two Fisher & Pykle dishwashers, three sinks, as well as a custom made Chicago Pizza Oven.
A big extraordinary circular wine cellar with vintage bottles hanging around the walls includes a domed top highlighted by vibrant changing colors of light. One of the gorgeous Guest Bedrooms is on the first floor, two are on the second floor, and the stunning Master Bedroom is on the third floor.
The breathtaking Master Bedroom has a spacious living area and an open staircase that leads up to a round domed sitting area with three portal windows overlooking the gulf.
The spa-like Master Bath includes a giant mosaic-tiled walk-in shower, a sleek Victoria Albert soaking tub, and a double vanity with raised bowls set above a three-inch-thick countertop made from a recycled blend of colorful glass lighted by color changing LEDs.
A staircase leads to the fourth story Media Room that can double as another Guest Suite with a full luxury bath, a giant wall mounted TV, a wet bar with a mini-Subzero and Miele dishwasher, as well as an entire wall of glass doors leading out to an open deck providing 360 degree views of the spectacular surroundings.
This stunning abode also features an automated high-end music sound system with special lighting throughout, a security system, HVAC remote controls, and a three-car garage with an indoor vehicle wash.
An amazing separate Guest House has two bedrooms with luxury en suite baths, a large living area, and a full kitchen with Bulthaup appliances, a Subzero, and a wine cooler.
