Majestic gates and a fan-paved, unpolished granite drive make a commanding first impression of this noble Italian-style villa in exclusive Burnt Pine. Step through the elaborate Cantera wrought iron and glass door and a vision of a European masterpiece, including stunning French mantels and deep coffered ceilings, floods the senses. Exquisite mosaic murals are perfectly complemented by stunning vanities handcrafted in England by Holland & Co. More grand styling is showcased in the library with rare yew paneling by acclaimed English artisans of Clive Christian. Enjoy incredible outdoor and indoor entertaining spaces; later, relax in one of the residence's four bayview bedrooms. The master bedroom includes a French sitting parlor, dressing area and bathroom with soaking tub carved from solid marble. There is plenty to explore in the home's billiards room, library and children's retreat area. The visionary design of Clive Christian is also evident in the chef-quality sunset grilling kitchen, featured in countless glossy magazines of note. Vanishing doors create a stunning climate-controlled retreat for all seasons and offer the perfect location to watch the sunset melt into the Choctawhatchee Bay. Framed by Italianate urns, serene bay views from the infinity pool with iridescent mosaic tile are reminiscent of the Bay of Venice. These are just a taste of what this exceptional residence offers, along with a private teak dock with boatlift and climate-controlled garage with granite floor. A $150,000 Control4 system was added to control the home's music, temperature, security and lighting with just the touch of a button. With privacy, exclusivity and beauty at its forefront, this home is a curated collection just waiting for the right buyers who appreciate the finer things in life.
