Built by a Danish architect as his own residence, this unique canal front property is a gem of Scandinavian design in tropical surroundings. A huge open plan living space with 18 ft high cathedral ceilings flows into a full length covered terrace overlooking the pool and the canal. The master suite and two guest bedrooms have their independent access to the pool and garden. The property’s clever design secures natural ventilation using the direction of the breeze. Internal and external water features provide a sense of coolness and soothing sound. Two solar water heaters and 2 fireplaces complete the contemporary eco-chic of this home.
The house is tiled throughout with Mexican marble while all doors and windows are made of Honduras mahogany. The wooden hurricane shutters double as a design feature. The patio, pool deck and other areas are furnished with natural Florida coral stone. The surrounding gardens include 2 pergolas, vegetable beds and a garden shade house. There is covered parking for 2 large vehicles, an air-conditioned tool shed and a floating dock. The property includes an independent 300 sq. ft studio with running water, A/C and hurricane windows.
