Description

PALM HARBOR is one of the most exquisite and incomparable estates in all of the Florida Keys. Hemmingway would have been inspired beyond imagination, both on land and sea. This outstanding, tropical retreat is located on the Atlantic Ocean and is perfectly situated on a beach-front with a private peninsula, and private harbor, in the prestigious, Green Turtle Beach, Islamorada, Florida Keys. The main house encompasses over 7,500 square feet, with 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, 2 half baths, a custom tackle room, a lofted card/game room, a crow's nest, outdoor showers, and covered parking. The guest house offers 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2 garage bays, a caretaker's office, and storage. As one drives through the gated entrance, it becomes exceedingly evident that all of one's senses are awakened, as a result of perfect attention to every detail, beginning with the driveway, which is laced with small seashells and extraordinary vegetation. The estate encompasses 6.44 acres (3.06 upland), juts into the crystal blue Atlantic Ocean and provides unobstructed water views throughout the estate, especially from the third-floor crow's nest. Once beyond the gated entry, the seclusion and privacy allow one to escape the stress of everyday life. The 3.38 acre, deep-water harbor, is a boater's dream, boasting 500' of dockage and two boat lifts. As one approaches the residence, and passes through the breezeway, the great lawn, 150' of sandy beach and private peninsula are intoxicating, and draw one to the ocean-front without deliberation. The harbor will awe the avid boater, diver or fisherman with its extensive dockage. Enjoy a leisurely day basking in the pool or lounging on the expansive pool deck which hosts a summer kitchen and outdoor shower. The seamless blending of indoor and outdoor living is beyond compare. The exteriors are a lovely medley of blue, green and yellow, a color palette in concert with the colors of the sea, the sun-washed skies and the vegetation. The white interiors with soaring cathedral ceilings are complimented by hardwood floors and dark trim on the multitude of windows. The walls are ideal for the display of large-scale art. The meandering gardens include an orchid house, secret garden, miniature Stonehenge Garden and numerous private locations to read, reflect or enjoy a private conversation. A second gated entrance is perfect for catered events, and there is a home generator on-site. Located walking distance to several of the finest restaurants and Art-Walk in Islamorada. PALM HARBOR EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS IN EVERY WAY.
