Accessed via a remote-controlled swing bridge and a Turkish marble driveway, this private island retreat on two-plus acres sits surrounded by turquoise water and white powder beaches. The magnificent estate encompasses approximately 30,000 square feet of sophisticated interiors. A Crestron system automates virtually everything in the residence, including lighting, air-conditioning, and audio. A breathtaking rotunda sets the tone for an array of dazzling living spaces including the three-story great room with 45-foot-high cypress ceilings; a three-story library; a sumptuous custom-designed master bedroom pavilion; and an award-winning home theater.
Three guest suites, a 6,000-bottle wine cellar, two adjoining swimming pools with a waterfall, a barbecue pavilion, tennis and volleyball courts, two boat slips, a boat house, a guest house, a caretaker’s home, and two private beaches are among the many amenities. Every part of the house can be monitored from anywhere in the world via security cameras equipped with human-recognition technology capabilities.
