9,000sqft "Mont Blanc" Beach Home is the Epitome of Gulf Living
When we think of dream beach homes, it doesn't get much better than "Mont Blanc," the 6 bed, 9 bath coastal retreat in Santa Rosa Beach Florida that makes the most of over 9,000 square feet.
The home listed by Spears Group is one that most certainly would tickle the fancy of even the most picky of beach home shoppers.
Right from the get-go, we notice that the home's grand stature coated in white creates an inspiring contrast with the greens and blues of natural beauty provided by the Gulf of Mexico and the pristine beaches of Seagrove, Florida.
Once inside, the listing agent points out that the home is "Newly furnished and finely outfitted by Robin Rains Interior Design, this iconic architectural marvel has been highly curated with priceless furniture, accessories, home automation, window treatments, lighting and artwork by one of Nashville's premier designers."
The longer we look, the easier we find it to appreciate the home's hand crafted elements and bespoke finishes. The design is said to be "inspired by the white-washed cycladic architecture of the Greek Islands."
As the listing points out, one thing that this home most certainly has plenty of is natural lighting which is key for such a location.
The listing agent goes so far as to say that this lighting "cascades off tumbled lime washed stone walls that took over 18 months of construction to reach fruition."
The home is rather tall, in fact, there are four stories to love. One of the first grand features that we notice is the grand spiral staircase at the center that really speak volumes to the vibe of the beach front estate.
Another noteworthy feature is the eurowall, the incredibly open structure that seamlessly allows the outdoor space to come inside, making those sun soaked days something to enjoy from anywhere on the first floor. The access to the pool deck is a must!
Speaking of the rear pool deck, I'm not sure if the views can get much better (at least not until we check out the rooftop deck!) Did we mention that the pool is complete with in-pool dining and a full outdoor kitchen?
The listing tells us that for as awesome as the home already seems, the real entertaining space is on the second floor.
This is where we find 180-degree views of the Gulf of Mexico, a gas fireplace, chef's kitchen (and adjoining scullery). The space is finely appointed with Wolf & Subzero appliances.
The third floor is where we find the "master level" in the southeast portion of the floor. Included are the likes of a spa-like master bath with heated seating in a steam shower. It also has a "private massage & body scrub table and a rotund wall of windows perfectly capturing panoramic gulf views with a western sunset orientation."
Of course, it's topped off with an incredible oversized closet with its own custom cabinetry and storage. Here we also find a wet bar, sauna, and fitness room.
To top off the second floor, we find a half bath for guests and a pair of king suites as well as a bunk room with private ensuite.
As special as the home has felt so far, we have to say that the true magic is on the fourth story.
The listing agent says that this floor "transports guests to an ethereal space designed with an unobstructed line of sight soaking in endless water views and offering a custom built bar area and wine cave with direct access to the top floor veranda."
I'm not sure about everyone else but personally, I'd be spending time on the top floor deck that's complete with mature ipe decking and it's own "rooftop plunge pool" that's positioned just right to appreciate year round sunsets.
The listing reminds us of a few other cherries on the sundae, saying "Other notable features include a private beach walkover, custom marble and hardwood flooring throughout the home, hand hewn oak beams and eucalyptus wood accents as well as fortified concrete construction."
