This unique masterpiece of design at 114 E. Surfside Drive in Blue Mountain Beach encompasses 3,249 square feet with four bedrooms and a connected two-car carriage house with guest quarters. The sought after location has the highest elevation on the entire Gulf of Mexico, close to picturesque 30A coastal villages for dining, drinking, shopping and the enjoyment of seasonal festivals.
This place has lots of "Wow" factor! Geodesic dome designed homes are very rare, and most people have never even seen one in person. They were created by the renowned architect R. Buckminster Fuller in the 1950s. The modern avant-garde spherical design became popular among independent creative people when introduced as Ford Motor Company's new headquarters building and the Epcot Center at Disney World. Since that time, they have had a resurgence in popularity since it's been determined that the spherical design is both energy efficient and hurricane strong.
This amazing home sits upon over half an acre of exclusively gated fenced-in grounds with tropical landscaping that provides a serene setting. Soaring palm trees and native plants adorn the yard while a large lovely lagoon-shaped pool with an adjoining Hot Tub provide leisurely entertainment. Besides the pool, this location in Blue Mountain Beach is less than a handful of minutes away from the sugary shoreline which has received national acclaim for excellence, natural beauty, and cleanliness.
When you pass through the front gate, a circular paver brick driveway goes around a raised island with a trio of towering palms. Both the main house and connected carriage house are capped with rooftop window towers for natural light. Partial octagonal beams frame the two-car garage and glass blocked entrance to the main house.
Double oval shaped beveled glass doors provide an elegant entrance to the primary residence and once inside you are astonished by the stunning surroundings. Triangular-shaped skylights and walls of windows light the spacious open living area with soaring ceilings. A raised stone walled fountain in the open foyer is tropically attired.
The classically columned sunken living room features a vibrant faux atrium sky mural above it. The dining area sits alongside sliding glass doors and overlooks the sparkling pool.
Nearby the open kitchen features stainless steel appliances, an octagonal island with seating and glass-front cabinetry. A Guest Bedroom and separate bedroom or den off the living area has access to a full hall bath that doubles as a powder room.
An open staircase leads up to a landing that dramatically overlooks the entry foyer.
The Master Bedroom has twin glass French doors off the landing that lead into a spacious suite with angled walls lighted with triangular skylights. A majestic spiral staircase leads up to an Observation Tower with room with a desk. The large Guest Bedroom in the Carriage House also features impressive angled ceilings lighted by triangular skylights.
