This magnificent estate on 1 ½ acres on the open Bayfront was originally built in 1925 by John Tuttle with heart pine floors and first cut, clear cut cypress on the beamed ceiling and fireplace surround of the magnificent living room. This exquisite home has been lovingly expanded and updated to enhance the authentic character of this Southern hospitality treasure. This romantic residence evokes the gracious lifestyle of a time gone by...verandas, brick terraces, a reading porch, French doors, a formal dining room opening to a private pool, and an expansive lawn overlooking Roberts Bay and the Intracoastal Waterway. For the boater there are multiple options: 200 feet of Bayfront with dockage for two boats PLUS protected dockage on Hanson Bayou for a 50 foot boat and a 14,000 lb.lift for a 2nd boat. Front entrance crystal chandelier does not convey with the house. INTERIOR PHOTOS OF THIS EXQUISITE HOME ARE AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.
