    Description

    ''WHERE' You Did Not Know 'YOU WANTED TO BE'' You could search from Pensacola to Apalachicola; but, you will not find a house ... a place you would prefer to this sweet spot. Just ask the folks who live here; because they actually did.The masterpiece of architecture is the work of Matt Savoie. His genius treatment of the high elevation property resulted in a home, where a view of expansive Rocky Bayou is seen throughout. The artful style is contemporary Acadia. Happily, the property sits on a tiny loop, where traffic is at a minimum, and serine privacy is found. The view to east is the green of a wetland. Even as you step into the front lawn, you will not see a neighbor's drive...only more nature and beautiful gardens.Much of the inspiration for the renovations came from worldtravel and stays at beautiful five star hotels. You enter through a custom gate at the drive. There is now a french limestone mantle gracing the floating brick fireplace in the heart of the home. There is now a fish fossil "swimming" in a sea of flame aqua glass where you prepare your meals. You may choose to shower outside with river rock massaging your toes, or bathe in the roomy marble bath. Outside is a kitchen, complete with blue green granite surfaces. Around the pool and spa is french pattern stone decking. Near the shore is "Rick's Bench" where you can enjoy the breeze under a massive magnolia...where yoga is optional. At the end of the pier is a covered boat lift, two jet ski lifts, a shower, and a place to clean the day's catch...which you may have scored as far away as the Gulf of Mexico, which is a near as a (twenty minute?) boat ride. O boy! One of our favorite local restaurants reflects our address. We love One20: A Modern Bistro. It's for the unpretentious; those who know what they like, who they are; and, as it turns out, know exactly "where they want to be".
