Designed on the principles of Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie style of architecture, this home evokes Wright's themes of unity, harmony, simplicity and a respect for nature. Wright's appreciation for the Arts and Crafts movement and the inherent serenity are expressed in the open plan and choice of materials. Throughout this magnificent home, geometric shapes, soft colors and woods of honey-colored maple banded in mahogany comprise the decor. Its stunning views and architecture immediately piqued the interest of numerous publishers and television programs. It has been featured in such notable publications as Southern Accents, a special edition by Southern Accents featuring the ''10 Most Beautiful Bedrooms,'' Second Home, and Colorado Home. It was also featured on the (continued).....Discovery Travel Channel's series "Great Vacation Homes" and on HGTV's series "Homes Across America." It also graces the pages in Seaside Style, published by Rizzoli. Directly gulf-front and adjacent to the Natchez Pavilion, you will enjoy completely unobstructed views of the emerald green gulf waters, the sugar white sand and the most breathtaking sunsets ever! The first floor, drawn around a sleeping porch and two master bedrooms with en-suite baths, projects an air of tranquility. Integrated platform beds and furniture with concealed built-in storage accentuate the design. A "floating" staircase through the home's central core connects the lower floor to a seemingly infinite second floor. Here you'll find the gourmet kitchen with Wolf gas range, Sub Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher and separate bar with sink, large icemaker and instant hot water. The dining room and living room flow together seamlessly and are framed on both sides with expansive windows and gulf views. A rice paper-paneled shoji screen accentuates the high barrel ceiling above the stairwell and is backlit to provide a diffuse glow in the evening. Three sets of French doors blur the line between indoors and out, leading to a large 20 x 20 outdoor living room which is also the crowning jewel of this magnificent home. Additionally, there is a laundry room with Miele washer and dryer, beautiful custom maple cabinets providing plenty of storage on both floors, security alarm system, a basement for storage and mechanical and the potential to remodel for an additional bedroom and/or bunkroom and bath. Outside, soft garden lighting illuminates the way from the two-car arbor to the front door. Custom bench seating provides outdoor storage, landscaping irrigation runs throughout the entire yard and the custom designed Viking grill and fireplace combo is the perfect place to end your day. The "Beach House" can also be remodeled into a three or four bedroom, three and a half bath home per the architect's schematic design.
