The connection to the surrounding natural elements was the driving force for the design of this modern home. Located in a quiet neighborhood, the home focuses on the open sky and sea and creates a calming, tropical oasis. The home is situated on a triangular shaped lot with over 200 linear feet of southwesterly facing bay frontage overlooking Big Pass, Lido Key and O er Key. The living space of the home is elevated as a result of being in the Coastal V-zone. A gated walk-through at ground level prominently serves as the front door to the home. As you pass through the pedestrian gate you are greeted with a vibrant garden courtyard that leads through to the bay beyond and also to the main outdoor staircase. The main living area is spacious and comprised of the living room, kitchen and dining spaces. This main living area is surrounded by natural, indirect light on all four sides. Strategic windows and forty feet of sliding glass door openings provide an expansive overlook to the dynamic bay views and swaying palms. Every room in the home parallels the water’s edge and has an adjoining covered terrace to enjoy the yearlong tranquil breezes.
