Venetian Style Waterfront Palazzo

This Florida Gulf home was built on a narrow lot which required a narrow disposition and thus the inspiration for a Venetian style Palazzo. The main living areas are on the second and third floors while the first is utilitarian, as the period model. Built at a cost of over $3M the owners are now starting to add furnishings, but also are offering the mansion for sale. See contact info on web page.
Features include characteristic gothic arches and a single loaded front exterior stairway with carved stone accents. Wood corbels and brackets offer a contrast to the finely detailed stone carved baluster and columns at the front porch. The rear of the house boasts a two story porch with a myriad of windows to capture the fantastic views.
A Palladian inspired two story domed Great Room is the centerpiece of the house. A delicate curving stairway connects both floors detailed with metal and ceramic. Interior stone carved door surrounds and mid level landing window treatment are exquisite.
The nearly 10,000 SF design also has an elevator and secondary stairs. Formal Living and Dining, Study, Island Kitchen with Breakfast area and bread oven, Media Room, and four bedrooms. 4 car garage, fountain courtyard, Game room and storage on ground floor.
