Gated Mediterranean Luxury Intracoastal Home

This gated entry Mediterranean Villa is themed after an Italian Castle, nestled in the hills of northern Italy. Staying with a European theme all exterior floors and decks are Turkish Travertine. All exterior walls and columns are Venetian plaster with ages old colors mixed in. The outside envelope of this structure is completed as one piece all connected with structural foam insulation. The Clay Tile roof was installed using a foamed-in system allowing for NO NAILS to penetrate the roof. All of this creates a wind load on the roof exceeding 300 mph.

The Interior walls are using a skip-trolled finish for the old world look. The entry hall to the master suite uses plaster to feel like a block wall with domed ceiling and groin ceiling at the end. The master bath continues the old world look with tumbled marble walls to the ceiling in the 15′ high turret area. A steam room is included for relaxation. The 6′ round tub is therapuetic. There are also twin travertine surface mounted vessel sinks and wall mounted flat panel TV.

All of the exterior windows and doors are Anderson architectural storm watch series (impact resistant). These are stained pine interiors with forest green vinyl covered wood exterior. The front door system is a 14′ high double iron door and transom by Cantara of Mexico.

In this house there are over 105 custom built cabinets using distressed and designer finishes. The uppers are all using antique seeded glass. Every countertop in the house is granite including the laundry room and Butlers Pantry.

the same time for one order. On the second floor there is a service kitchen with a stackable laundry closet. A media room with a 7.1 speaker system in the ceiling. Three
