This custom coastal estate home is a mastery of architecture and innovative design fashioned with clarity and intention. It is progressive and classic at the same time, encompassing the essence of luxury living. The design team of architects, interior designers and landscape professionals created this distinctive home with the vision of developing a four-home enclave in the heart of Inlet Beach. This home, and the one next door, comprise two of the four. The lots behind are available for the completion of this exclusive mini-neighborhood. One row back from the beach, 292 Pompano maximizes its prestigious location through its exterior and interior designs. Beautiful stone walkways lead past a white privacy fence to a handsome arched mahogany door and mosaic-tiled water feature.
The inviting salt-water pool with sunbathing tier is placed up front to exploit maximum sunlight but is heated for night and wintertime enjoyment. A regulation-size bocce ball court was installed for more outside entertainment, and an outdoor pool half-bath is conveniently located. Beautiful 20-foot palm trees create privacy and a tropical ambiance. The covered front porch supplies plenty of room for shade worshippers, and the outdoor kitchen makes poolside grilling as easy as it gets. Balconies off the second- and third-floor bedrooms and library offer even more opportunities to enjoy the outdoors and Gulf views. The interior reflects the premium placed on maximizing Gulf views and breezes. The main living area, located on the second floor, optimizes the home's location by use of 9-foot folding Euro-wall sliding doors along the front and western sides, providing a beautiful panorama perfect for viewing turquoise waters and sunsets. The sliding doors open to an ultra-spacious wrap-around deck, allowing the living room and deck to become a singular space overlooking the Gulf. The deck's details reveal the same degree of attention reflected throughout the house: here, cooling misters help keep residents refreshed on hot days, Kumaru wood flooring stays cools and lovely, and the custom-made banisters exude the West Indies style that gives the home its distinctive appeal. The custom-designed and built shutters are of Spanish cedar, one of the most durable of woods, and beautiful native juniper was custom milled for the ceilings and brackets. The main deck houses al fresco dining for twelve, casual seating for games or cocktails, and a porch swing perfect for afternoon napping. The second-floor living space includes the living room, a separate dining room that seats 10, and a gourmet kitchen stocked with custom cabinets, Thermador appliances, U-Line refrigerator drawers, and sea pearl quartzite on the counters and 8-foot-long island. Refrigerators, icemakers and a second barbecue grill outside are placed where an active family needs them. A custom-made sideboard adjacent to the kitchen is the perfect bar, disguising an icemaker and two refrigerator drawers for housing canned beverages. And a built-in banquette provides the ideal setting for morning coffee, intimate dining, or "kids' table." Sleeping quarters are an extraordinary feature of this home! Three master suites (one behind the kitchen and two on the third floor) provide an oasis for adults. Each enjoys a stunning bathroom with marble floors and European showers, and, in two of them, luxurious soaking tubs. Built-in furniture and closet configurations provide ample storage. A library on the third floor is a perfect spot for enjoying cocktails as the sun set or checking emails. Downstairs, separate bunkrooms for boys and girls give kids their own space (complete with TVs and electronics storage) adjacent to a Cabana room that rounds out the "Kid Zone." Two sets of Electrolux washers and dryers stand ready for service. This home is offered fully furnished with items selected by one of the area's top design firms. Additional spectacular features include 4 separate Sonos zones with streaming music for the entire house; a fully integrated security system; oversized gas fireplace in the living room; Visual Comfort light fixtures; Rinnai tankless hot water systems; Legrand light switches; exterior lighting for aesthetics and security; lush landscaping; and far too many other delightful features to mention. This breathtaking, custom home did not even make the market before it went under contract.
