Fabulous as a Corporate Retreat, an upscale VRBO or a great family residence, this spectacular custom waterfront home by designer Mike Calvino was built over a period of seven years at the head of the Little Manatee River to maximize the Florida lifestyle by inviting the outdoors in so that the views, the beach, the boating & the lifestyle would be totally unique for the owners' pleasure. Designed such that the home would be almost maintenance free, the types of wood used to accent this design are eucalyptus & cypress, both of which require minimal maintenance & are resistant to the environment. The "floating" feel of the home is enhanced by the elevated kitchen, the glass walkways, & the many windows which are designed to open & invite the outdoors in. Entire waterfront view is screened to enable outdoor living while still under roof. Built in furniture enhances the home & the maintenance free lifestyle. Lower level under roof includes a heated pool, SPA, & entertainment area & spare bedroom & bath. Roof decks also serve as entertainment areas w/ lots of sunshine & fresh air. Separate living quarters, called the "Boathouse" includes a separate bedroom, bath & screened porch, ideal for guests or additional family members. Two boat lifts under cover make launching your crafts a breeze, while the beach lends itself to launching your canoes, kayaks, & catamarans. An architectural marvel, this home & its location are irreplaceable.
