This unique style home graces almost an acre of lush tropically landscaped grounds at 114 Indian Bayou Drive in Destin. This masterpiece of modern design home, located in the prestigious country club community of Indian Bayou, encompasses a very spacious 6,120 square feet. With five bedrooms and five full luxury baths, four of which are ensuite. This place comes with a lot of “Wow” factors, including a rare deep water dock.
Although many people say that Destin is all about the beach, those who own boats will tell you it’s all about the water! Deepwater docks for big boats are hard to find, but this is one of them on a shore that spans 138 linear feet across.
The private dock has two boat lifts, and one of them can lift a 40,000-pound boat. It also has a Pontoon and Jet Ski lift along with a fish cleaning station. The property has a premier placement at a point on the bayou where it conveniently opens out into the open water, which makes cruising on your boat a comfortable breeze. It also provides stunning panoramic views of the shimmering bay.
This fantastic home takes full advantage of this stunning setting, with many sliding glass doors leading to entertaining outdoor areas and entire walls of floor-to-ceiling windows. In fact, you can see the gorgeous scenery from almost every single room in this house.
These fantastic views are accentuated by the fact that a giant Great Room with soaring cathedral ceilings spans across from the front glass-walled entry to a towering wall with a triple row of windows facing out to the waterfront outback.
The palatial entry hall has two sets of open curved staircases that sweep up on each side of the foyer to a regal ship bow landing above, which also features dramatic views down below into the main living area.
The bright light massive Great Room is quite stunning since an entire wall of towering windows brings the outdoors in and includes the beautiful bay vistas.
Three sets of glass portal patio doors lead out to an expansive sun patio flanked by two veranda sitting areas centered upon a newly designed pool with a striking angular design.
The patio, pool, and a raised crescent-shaped hot tub that crowns it overlooks the lush lawn studded with palm trees which gently slopes down toward the beautiful waterfront.
The Great Room incorporates the living, dining, entertaining, and kitchen portions of this hospitable home.
A gas fireplace on one side is framed by two walls of handsome sleek custom cabinetry, while a dark rich hardwood credenza sits beside a dining area on the opposite wall.
The open, very spacious Gourmet Kitchen features more of this rich cabinetry along with mottled Granite and Silestone Quartz topped bars, an expansive island for entertaining and additional windows facing out onto the water.
High-end appliances include two Gaggenau convection ovens, a Milele and a Fischer Paykel dishwasher, a Subzero refrigerator-freezer, a Wolfe gas range, and three sinks.
A separate built-in bar area features two wine refrigerators, cooling drawers, an icemaker, and a cappuccino machine.
The Master Suite, a Guest Bedroom, and a separate Media Room with built-in cabinetry are on the first floor off the main living area. The Master Bedroom Suite includes a gas fireplace and a quadruple set of sliding glass doors that lead out to the poolside veranda and feature gorgeous views. Electric blackout privacy blinds may be engaged if you wish to sleep-in late.
The lavish ensuite Master Bath includes white Carrera Marble flooring, walls, and an encased soaking tub.
It has a steam shower, double vanity sinks, a separate water closet, and a large adjoining dressing room/walk-in closet that resembles a boutique-like setting.
The other Guest Quarters are upstairs on the second level at each end of the suspended staircase landing that features opulent views down into the entry foyer and Great Room.
Two Guest Bedrooms with full luxury ensuite baths are located on each side of this home for maximum privacy and separate space. They also feature walk-in closets and washer/dryers.
Both of these Guest Bedrooms include their own large individual balcony space that looks down upon the lovely pool area, across the lawn, and out towards the beautiful bay.
Besides the fact that you may easily cruise on over from your dock to the boat party on Crab Island or all the action at HarborWalk Village, this fantastic location is close to grocery stores, liquor wine outlets, restaurants, and a myriad of shopping venues. It is a short distance away from The Indian Bayou Country Club, which is the oldest established golf course in Destin and features forested fairways dotted with natural lagoons.
