Located in a secluded area along the Intracoastal Waterway at the end of a long winding driveway is this magnificent home designed by Architect Michael Moorefield and built by Fred Murray Construction.
After passing through a maritime forest and just before the meadow, the driveway approach is diverted around a 25’ spiral mound of Zoysia turf with a (soon to be built on top) Solstice Sundial & Bench with a view of the ocean through the breezeway of the home.
On the north side of the large lawn meadow is a secluded vegetable garden surrounded by large berms of perennials and annuals. Additional perennials and annuals are placed in the center circle of the expansive motor court which is surrounded by an outer circular grove of Palmetto Palms. Panoramic views of the main residence, guest house, pool house and garden are best appreciated form the motor court.
The passageway below the breezeway connecting the pool house to the main house serves as a dramatic frame to the expansive distant water views of the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean. Along the way to the water, the view is also framed by large potted Sago Palms surrounded by vibrant colors chosen by the homeowner.
Less is more on the waterside garden where the view is enhanced by large expanses of lawn and very few plantings other than ornamental grasses and a grove of Live Oaks surrounded by a stone wall.
