One of the finest lots in Destin, Florida, located in exclusive Cobb's Point! Measuring nearly one acre, with approximately 165' of water frontage at the coveted point of Joe's Bayou and Choctawhatchee Bay, the property features the most desired west-facing orientation, providing stunning sunset views, afternoon light, and a phenomenal deep-water dock that will accommodate large boats! Evoking the classic beauty of old-world France, the home is built with generations in mind. It features many imported finishes, as well as superior ICF construction and modern technologies designed for longevity in the north Florida climate. The flexibility of the 3-story floorplan promotes the interests of generations as well: the main living space and master suite are on the second floor, with 2 additional bedroom suites plus a connecting living area on the third level, and a first floor apartment with another gorgeous master suite, which can either be self-sufficient, or easily reached via connecting stairs or the elevator.
Gorgeous Bois Chamois French white oak floors, shipped from France, comprise the wide-plank floors on the first two floors. In addition to stunning water views, the open entertaining area includes a tea bead chandelier from India setting off the dining area and a coral stone fireplace with surround sound incorporated. Truly one of a kind, the kitchen features Bevolo gas lanterns, old Chicago brick accent wall, a LaCornue range from France with full concrete hood, French Herbeau faucets, custom-painted cabinets, poured concrete countertops, and an amazing island custom built over an antique church altar. Custom woodworking was employed in the adjoining pantry. Nearby are an office, with dual computer desks and hand-carved, antique doors, and a powder room for guests boasting a giant clam shell sink and antique Belgian mirror.
It may look elegant on the outside, but this is a full-fledged dream garage! Over 1300' of conditioned space and bathroom, with 14' ceilings and reinforced concrete designed to accommodate car lifts in each bay, the garage will house 6 cars and the doors are hurricane-rated.
Back out on the water, the pier reaches to 12' of depth, allowing for an 80' boat. The dock has both a 12,000 and 16,000 lb. boat lifts with 50-amp electric service, plus a jetski lift.
Throughout the home, storage is unquestionably a priority, including his-and-her walk-in closets in the main floor master suite and a stunning amount of storage in the closets/built-ins and attics of the third floor, all of which is carpeted, heated and cooled. Designed to be energy efficient as well as secure, the home includes 8" of Styrofoam insulation as well as high-impact Kolby windows and doors. The land was elevated to 13' above sea level, which puts it in Zone X (through LOMA) and protects the a/c units and the 16K Siemens whole-home generator.
A legacy home in one of Destin, Florida's most spectacular settings!
