Designed by Siskind and Carlson architects, with interiors by Sam Robin and landscaping by the renowned Raymond Jungles, the secluded, resort-like oceanfront retreat is nestled within one of the area’s most sought-after locations.  In addition to boasting expansive dockage for multiple boats and a deep-water basin, the home -- a prime hub for fishing -- has a ramp, lifts and davits.

The property’s sprawling main house offers four bedrooms and five and one-half baths and hardwood floors throughout, while the adjacent well-appointed guesthouse has two bedrooms and two baths.  With a slew of indoor/outdoor venues, an oversized pool and spa and a true chef’s kitchen with Carrara marble countertops, the estate is equipped for grand-scale entertaining. Adding to its multitude of conveniences, the property is less than 60 minutes from Miami.

About The Audrey Ross Team

Audrey Ross has been in business since 1984 under the name of Ross and Associates, Inc. and then as a part of Esslinger Wooten Maxwell, Inc. Realtors - however, our website has been in existence since approximately 1995 under the same name and always representing the BRAND OF AUDREY ROSS, LUXURY REAL ESTATE. Many years ago, we elected to brand the name of the main “rainmaker” for the company/firm/team, and that has been Audrey Ross. Since that time, we have as a team participated in “brand management” which we now understand is a new profession /career, by answering our phones “Audrey Ross’s office”, heading all of our advertising in that manner and generally bringing all of the business under the one name.
