Award-winning, certified green, custom designed and decorated home on over 0.5 acres in the established riverfront community of Tequesta Harbor. Thoughtful and functional design can be felt over the entire 4,000sf cottage-style home, with 5 beds, 4.1 baths and effortless main living space, extensively renovated in 2008, which includes the upstairs addition, by local renowned architect Susan Hall. Enter into a bright dine-in kitchen highlighted by custom wood cabinetry and high end touches. An oversized chef's island with Petoskey stone countertops and breakfast bar is the focal center of the family-friendly space. Bring the outdoors in through one of several sets of French doors throughout the home, leading to a backyard open air paver patio, screened porch, a shaded brick south courtyard or the gravel terrace with limestone water fountain off the master bedroom suite. The downstairs guest quarters is an oasis for visitors or busy children, with an oversized guest bedroom and full bath, along with a bonus/play room or additional office. The master bedroom suite offers privacy and plenty of space with a built-in bookcase and granite-topped desk, along with a workout area lined with windows overlooking the backyard terrace. The 2008 upstairs addition was built with a growing family in mind, featuring 3 bedrooms with ample closet space and large windows peeking out over the branches of mature oak trees, along with 2 full bathrooms. With closed cell foam insulation, a 4-zone energy efficient A/C, Low-E coated windows that minimize UV rays, hurricane shutters, LED lighting, and 2 tankless water heaters, this automated psmart homep was rebuilt with leading green technology and is Florida Green Building Coalition certified.
The natural beauty that surrounds the property is perfectly integrated into multiple outdoor living spaces designed for comfort and preserved with a professionally designed landscape. Along with privacy and security, the fenced backyard provides a safe, green space to roam and a paver patio under shady oak trees for dining al fresco. With outdoor entertaining in mind, a built-in gas grill and exterior storage room is easily accessed from the homeps kitchen. Completing the backyard is a large screened patio and gravel terrace with a custom designed limestone waterfall right off the master bedroom. Boating, fishing and relaxation on the river is just a short walk from the home at the Tequesta Harbor community dock off the Intracoastal; the residence comes with a deeded boat slip and lift.
