If you looked up the word “palatial” in the dictionary it could very well show a picture of this spectacular home for sale. Words that come to mind to describe this gorgeous villa go beyond palatial. They also include spectacular, awesome and magnificent! This pinnacle of Mediterranean design looks like a palace or majestic villa that you would expect to find in some pristine destination in Italy. However this one is located at 3225 Bay Estate Dr in Burnt Pine, a prestigious gated enclave, within the already exclusively gated community of the 2,400 acre Sandestin Resort.
“Casa de la Bahia” is on the beautiful bay where it graces the lushly landscaped grounds overlooking the westward waters, which makes it a perfect place to be at sunset. It was inspired by trio of renowned architects to create this magnificent masterpiece. An elaborate gate leads into a paver tiled courtyard complete with a flowing fountain. You will gasp in awe at the interiors of this home since such settings are usually reserved for palaces like Versailles. Spectacular soaring ceilings are adorned with intricate bead work, crowns, trays and multiple moldings. Ornate antique decorative bronze and crystal chandeliers are suspended in heavenly fashion from room to room.
The décor is meticulously detailed for beauty with rich parchment toned marble flooring, columned archways, Palladian windows, handsome beamed ceilings and architectural niches which provide a castle-like ambiance. This particular palace comes furnished with Oriental rugs that richly accent the floors, original artwork that adorns the walls, statuary that provides lovely decorative art and comfortable furnishings, which are exquisite. Although the atmosphere of this Sandestin home has an awesome ancestral quality it includes state of the arts everything including wide built-in TVs, a sound system, a Gourmet Kitchen with commercial grade appliances, two HVAC systems and security.
Walls of windows facing the bay are flanked with Corinthian columns that frame the sensational scenery. An expansive stone tiled patio is centered by a European styled swimming pool that elegantly cascades over the sides and includes a bubbling hot tub. The expanse of Choctawhatchee Bay serves as a beautiful background and includes a dock for water sports. The outdoor living room is so beautifully furnished you will feel like you are relishing a gorgeous view from the lobby of a luxurious hotel in the tropics.
The expansive regal Master Bedroom Suite has triple columned archways that lead into the sleeping quarters and a sunny sitting area with beautiful bay views. Glass doors lead to the poolside patio and outdoor room. The incredible bathroom has richly detailed duel cabinetry with separate vanities, an intricately tiled double shower, a free standing dressing table and a walk-in closet with custom cabinetry. The four other very spacious bedrooms are also wonderfully adorned with individual style and all come with a full luxury bath en suite. Another full bath serves as an elegant Powder Room.
