In a class by itself, the beautiful historic home and meticulous grounds of this property are hard to find. No restoration expense was spared in details like 20-foot ceilings, maple floors, custom mill work, built-in cabinetry, unique marble counter tops, tiled bath floors and well-proportioned rooms. The entrance is a great room with formal living and dining areas with windows and French doors opening to the wrap around porch and pool vistas. The unique kitchen with custom cabinets has added counter and serving space with a marble-topped built-in breakfront. Adjacent to the kitchen is the private media room with French doors that flow out to a marvelous private porch with skylights and amazing garden views. There is a guest bedroom with private bath and a second room flanking the media room that is currently used as a home office, but easily could serve as a third bedroom. The master suite is over the top! Soaring ceilings, big windows, huge walk-in closet and a large bath with walk-in shower, double vanity, separate laundry room and unique outdoor shower. The swimming pool is state-of-the-arts, with remote controlled waterfall, ambient lighting and pool temperature; never too hot or too cold! There is a poolside cabana currently being used as a gym. The grounds are breathtaking. Tropical greenness enfolds pool and home with specimen foliage and trees, flowering shrubs, orchids, and many trophy plants. The 8,516 square foot lot provides the perfect space to enjoy this rare property in style and privacy. Other features include an electric gate disguised as a picket fence, a beautiful covered carport, home security system, full-house surround sound system, extravagant landscape lighting and full-property irrigation. In summary, welcome to the most exotic, perfect tropical home in Key West!
