This mansion is very unusual as it is all on the tip of a peninsula with water from open Bay around to a wide canal; almost like in Venice; having cascading terraces on the 1st, 2nd & 3rd levels.The 1st terrace level is wide with a large elegant fountain that could be converted into a large Jacuzzi that center opens to a very large dock. There is a place for a pool(See Supplement). The 2nd level was built for views and/or terraces as well. The 2 story entry, with dome ceiling, has 2 stair cases, one to 2nd floor & the other to the bi- level elevator going from ground to 3rd floor. The entrance is very airy & open floating into a game room & terrace on one side, then theater, powder room & wine area on the other.The formal living room ceiling is very special with grain vaulting. Up to a bi-level is the mahogany European elevator with open cage ceiling. This level leads to a mahogany paneled library, formal dining room, 1/2 bath, & 3 island granite kitchen with gas cooking & tons of storage which in all open to the family room, terraces & water.The 3rd floor has 5 bedrooms,5 baths, 2 sitting rooms,2 morning kitchens & all but one bedroom opens to water views and/or terraces. Naturally the ceilings are all high throughout & many are vaulted with indirect lighting. All the floors are Brazilian cherry wood; base boards & crown molding throughout show off the many custom build-ins.The 1st level has 3 car garage & 2 elegant carports. This gated mansion is a must to see with each unique room looking to water.
