There are incredible views from the magnificent waterfront home situated on almost 3/4 of an acre on the shore of Lake Sylvan, with excellent ocean access.

Exquisite tile work, glass, onyx, choice marble, stone and exotic woods have been used to great effect.  The entire residence, including the radius, is constructed of poured concrete.  Energy-efficient Icynene open and closed cell spray foam provides moisture and sound control.   Commercial-grade ductwork, state-of-the-art electronics and systems have been used throughout.  Smart-house technology manages lights, the audio system and surveillance cameras.

There are 7 bedrooms and 10.5 baths, including a spa-like gem in the Master Suite.   A guesthouse and servant’s quarters complete the picture.
