Property Description

Embark on a journey to beautiful gulf front living, down Destin, Florida's Holiday Isle. Arrive at a bracingly original, private retreat known as Destin Jewel, a newly constructed sanctuary that perfectly blends the spirit of nature with sophisticated fabrication. Experience the harbor's distant jetties, three miles of snow-white beaches, and an occasional school of dolphins from your own secluded paradise. This stylish gulf front residence is designed to rival the world's finest resorts and incorporates the highest-level construction standards. Exterior walls are poured concrete over steel I-beam construction and are built to withstand wind speeds of up to 150 MPH, equal to a Category 4 hurricane. Destin Jewel is an iconoclastic luxury landmark with a landscape reflective of simple Florida living. Privacy equals tranquility on over an acre of gulf front property with one hundred feet of gulf frontage. Views of the Gulf of Mexico's aquamarine waters and the harbor's distant jetties are unparalleled with more than three miles of shoreline visibility. Natural stone pavers lead the way to minimalist, modern design accentuated by a blue metal roof and aqua-colored decorative cladding. The owner conceptualized this home's crescent-shaped design and renowned Archiscapes Architects completed the ideation, which seamlessly blend indoors and out. Destin Jewel incorporates five-star amenities in three stories and 9,000 square feet of heated and cooled living space plus an additional 5,000 square feet of balconies and outdoor hardscapes, Your adventure to sublime continues as you enter to a 35' foyer where walls of glass draw your attention to the unforgettable sea's still waters. Before venturing outdoors, you pause for a moment to take in the chic chandeliers and the striking circular glass elevator. A stunning wood and glass free-form staircase, accented by subtle LED lighting wraps around the elevator and leads dreamily upstairs. Minimalist, neutral interiors, natural limestone floors and clean-lined European cabinetry sit quietly and seductively, encouraging all eyes to remain on the dazzling outdoors. From every vantage point, multi-hinged walls of windows fold into obscurity allowing all eyes to marvel at miles of unspoiled beaches. Glass wind reduction railings adorn deep outdoor balconies allowing the admirer to float above emerald green waters. A decadent, free form, custom, infinity pool is located just outside the first-floor living spaces and is visible from all floors. This luxurious pool delights all the senses and calls for dramatic appreciation of the pool's central fire feature with glass enclosure and accent fire torches, theatrical LED accent lighting, two swim-up bars, and an in-pool sundeck. This entertainment oasis is remarkable and is certain to be central to all activity in the home including meals, compliments of the connoisseur's outdoor kitchen. Gulf-side outdoor seating accommodates large parties in stylish furnishings. Located separate from the pool, the heated spa with seating for 12 features an independent HD TV and audio system and two separate massage jet motors for each person. Anti-glare TV screens line the outdoor oasis for a total of 19 total Smart TVs through the home. A surprise, regulation sized, sand volley board court sits just beyond the manicured grass lawn and just below the natural dunes. The home's main floor kitchen is any chef's indulgence. Precise design conceals the complexity of futuristic appliances and perfection in maneuverability. Light reflecting marble countertops, a striking yet simple glass tile backsplash, copper sinks and fixtures, and sleek striated-white oak cabinetry echo the home's timeless detail. The central kitchen includes two full size 30-inch Subzero refrigerators, two full 30-inch size Subzero freezers, three sinks, two dishwashers, a three-burner gas range, and a four-burner magnetic cook top. The elegant living room encourages guests to gather and is serviced by a fully equipped bar with a commercial wine refrigeration. First floor, banquet-style dining seats twenty-five, and bar seating accommodates an additional ten. If indoor entertainment is on the agenda, move to the spirited state-of-the-art theater with a 119" projection screen and Dolby Surround Sound. Cosmopolitan appeal meets southern comfort in seven gulf front bedroom suites and a playful two-bedroom children's wing. Each of the seven private suites is the pinnacle of style and relaxation. In each en suite, an unexpected jewel tone is added to hand-painted, poured concrete flooring and custom lighting for a striking contrast to otherwise neutral tones. Luxurious private baths incorporate ultimate creature comforts and the whimsy of unique glass tile that continues the jewel theme from the bedroom. The second floor gathering space, reminiscent of a luxury cruise liner's bar, blends football colored leather and striated-oak cabinetry for a masculine feel. Three 55" TVs line the bar's backdrop for endless viewing pleasure. An expansive harbor party deck and an additional private balcony cigar lounge compliment the bar area. The kid's suite will enchant the younger set. Concrete floors are hand-painted with the wonders of the ocean. Two custom-crafted birch bunk beds imitate the lore of pirate sailings. Custom painted mermaids peak over the ship's bow, luring the slumbering child out to sailing. Additional sleeping quarters adjoin the ship's bedroom. Both bedrooms can easily accommodate twelve children. The children's bath combines bright colors and hard surfaces for ultimate durability. The double shower and triple sink ensure that there is no need to fight for bathroom time. The home's third floor includes a lounging area, and each floor incorporates laundry facilities. This smart-home design is controlled via in-home touchscreens. The security system, wireless system, and thermostatic controls are all enterprise grade. This impressive home is projected to gross more than $700,000 in first-year vacation rental income. Qualified purchasers are invited to tour this luxurious beach home. Call for your opportunity to experience this remarkable testament to exceptional living.
