Nestled among the rolling dunes of WaterSound is this elegant turn-key 6 bedroom beach retreat that's perfectly situated on the large corner lot of S. Founders Lane. No detail has been overlooked in this distinguished 4-story home located just steps from the community's secluded white-sand beaches that is being sold fully furnished. Presenting sophistication and flair, this Smarthome impresses from beginning to end with custom furnishings and high end finishes throughout. Wooden pathways connect the picturesque homesteads of WaterSound Beach and this home's sweeping front porch greets you as you enter this welcoming beachside abode. With one-of-a-kind pieces from Phillips Collection and striking Luna Bella lighting throughout, this home kick starts the dialogue with its matchless

conversational pieces. The open concept living room features soaring vaulted ceilings accented with custom-made exposed beams and a beautiful textured fireplace to remind you that you've made it to the beach. The large dining area features a beautiful custom table with seating for seven and an expedient wet bar that can be put to use or tucked away at a moment's notice. Carrying over from the living room, the spacious kitchen makes a statement with a custom backsplash that evokes soothing visions of the emerald waters of the Gulf. Offering a large center island with a breakfast bar and plentiful storage crowned by a stunning chandelier, the kitchen presents Wolf appliances and a Sub Zero fridge that effortlessly blends into the home's décor. Find sanctuary in the master bedroom retreat, located on the second level and opening up to a spacious screened in porch that was made to entertain. The luxurious master bath offers a deluxe soaking tub, an expansive shower with many jets, his and her vanities, two closets with built-ins, a pocket door and Toto Washlet. The four thoughtfully planned guest suites, one currently being utilized as an office, all boast their own distinctive styling and offer en suite baths with unique tile design, custom cabinets and eclectic lighting that is sure to impress. The main floor media room clothed in luxurious grasscloth wallpaper is the perfect place to catch the next big game or gather over a rousing card game. The spacious second floor wine cellar is sure to excite the wine lover in us all. On the third level you can find the bunk room that features custom made bunks, reclaimed wood floors and a separate entertainment space perfect for the kids to escape to. Spacious yet intimate outdoor spaces are accessible from all levels of the home. The fourth floor tower finished in Venetian plaster offers the perfect place to entertain while taking in the breathtaking Gulf views. The spacious appointed carriage house connected by the screened in porch and located over a spacious two-car garage offers a picture-perfect guest retreat with a coffered ceiling and a custom made dining table and bench seating. The covered back porch on the main level of the home offers additional entertainment space, a waterfall wall, a custom jetted splash pool and fireplace. Featuring a suitable mud room on the first floor and laundry on the first and second levels, this beach house also offers custom made stair railings imported from Italy, two outdoor showers, and the convenience of an elevator to three levels of the home. The intricacies of design were brought to life by Chris Clark Construction in this exquisite illustration of beach living. This home has never been on the rental market and is being sold turn-key. With too many details to mention, this beach house is a MUST SEE!
