Two years of property maintenance included "There exists another world - a world where man lives in harmony with nature, where architecture rises almost organically from the land and where the line between indoors and outdoors is irrevocably blurred" H&L Magazine Fall 2009. This Estate is set intimately into the surrounding estuary and boarders 80 acres of Federal Wildlife reserve. With its truly remarkable landscaping that is incorporated into the wetlands including freshwater fed ponds and cedar boardwalks this home defines the words rare and unique. The Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home built with premium finishes and incredible foresight captures the imagination as you enter the double 4' wide double doors into the domed entrance with inset chandelier. You take in the natural surroundings through the opposing wall that is mostly glass. The view is spectacular and changes throughout every day with more wildlife than you can imagine. When entertaining, move your guests to the family room with its tree-framed wood fireplace and twin, powered roll-up glass doors that allow fresh breezes and the sounds of surrounding wildlife. Kayak to the open ocean through the channel or wander the private paths that meander through the property. The 2 brackish water lagoons see salmon spawning in the fall and fry jumping throughout the year. Originally built and operated as a B&B with very rare 10 out of 10 rating (booking.com) with 3 guest suites the home was built to allow for slight modifications that would dramatically change the layout and make it suitable as a single family home with guest/caretaker accommodation. This is an unbelievable setting that will never be recreated and must be experienced in person.
