The almost 5,000-square-foot modern residence has four en-suite bedrooms, four full bathrooms and one half bath with an oversized two-car garage. The master retreat is situated on the main level and features an oversized walk-in designed by Contemporary Closets, spa-inspired bathroom with Archeda by Cucine Ricci sinks and cabinetry and private outdoor shower. Unique elements of the home include an intricate glass art piece at the entrance of the home designed and fabricated by Florida glassworks artist, Sarah Hinds. There many luxury finishes in the Cucine Ricci designed chef’s kitchen including Silestone and concrete countertops, high-end appliances, modern designed cabinetry, Contemporary Classics walk-in pantry and 160-bottle wine refrigerator.
The never-lived-in custom home was commissioned by Neal and Jill Colton, and sadly, Jill passed away this past September to endometrial cancer before the home was completed. Neal made it his mission to complete the home, making sure it had the best of everything, which was what she wanted.
“My wife and I had planned for this to be the ultimate retirement home of our dreams. We had worked with the architect to design a home that provided ease to an aging and active couple, which is why all of the major elements of the home are all on the same level,” said Neal Colton. “This is not a spec home. Jill and I put a great deal of effort into every detail of this home, and we never compromised on the original vision.”
This property showcases more than 6,000-square-feet of imported Walker Zanger Italian porcelain flooring, a 3-stop elevator, custom LED lighting, a Wicked Smart automation system and a natural gas fireplace. On the backside of the home, facing the water are walls of floor to ceiling impact resistant glass with pocketing sliders that expand the open floor plan of the living, dinning and family rooms to the outdoor entertaining areas. The lanai and outdoor kitchen with teak cabinetry and Lynx stainless steel grill are protected by automated screens and overlook the Pebbletech Infiniti-edge pool and spa with fireplace, as well as the dock and canal.
“New luxury construction is very hard to find in today’s market,” said Pettingell. “The thought and detail which have gone into the building of this home are incredible. I expect this home to attract a sophisticated buyer who wants a never-lived in home on a premium deep-water lot.”
