Homes like this do not sell very often. Custom designed by local architect Michael Sotero and built in 2002, this Mediterranean style home makes a statement. The entry courtyard, wrought ironwork, tile roof, and copper gutters underscore the caliber of the home. Inside, curved walls, tray ceilings, and an open staircase convey elegance. Designed to maximize views of the nature preserve while maintaining privacy, the unique floor plan offers separation of space with natural flow for indoor/outdoor living. Expansive windows throughout bring the outdoors in and the oversized patio becomes an extension to the home. Radiant heat throughout, separate office, reading nook, built-in shelving and cabinetry, two gas fireplaces, an outdoor wood burning fireplace with custom tile, and so much more. Situated in the Uplands gated community, the location offers exclusivity with proximity to the beach. This home has been well loved by the original owners and is now ready to become your retreat.
