Originally built in 1912 by famed Chicago steel tycoon Marinus van der Kloot and expanded in 2001, the Mediterranean-style home features four bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths in the primary residence, and a separate guest house with a kitchen and bath multiplies the space for entertaining and hospitality.
Luxurious finishes and fixtures offer a modern complement to the Old Florida beauty of the buildings and landscape. The spacious main home offers an elegant resort aesthetic with arched windows, neutral tones, recessed lighting and dark wood floors in the primary living spaces. In the kitchen, Porcelanosa tile flooring complements the bespoke, frameless wood-grain cabinetry and pale Caesarstone countertops. A massive island is a chef’s dream, with abundant space for prep plus seating adjacent to the den. Top-of-the-line appliances include a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, Wolf ovens and gas cooktop.
A coffered ceiling and marble fireplace lend grandeur to the main living room, with massive arched windows and double sets of French doors showcasing the terrace and Bay views. Separated from the main living area by a private foyer, the owners’ suite features a vaulted, beamed ceiling and incredible natural light that create the sense of a luxurious tropical escape. Double glass doors offer stunning water views and direct access to the terrace.
