Effortless indoor/outdoor living is embraced when the glass doors are open to the expansive 800 foot Brazilian Ipe deck overlooking the water and manicured grounds. Stone-made waterfall and diving board dock create a resort-like atmosphere making this five year “new” residence an extraordinary entertaining venue.
