    Description

    ''WHERE You Did Not Know YOU WANTED TO BE'' You could search from Pensacola to Apalachicola; but, you will not find a house... a place you would prefer to this sweet spot. Just ask the folks who live here; because they actually did.The masterpiece of architecture is the work of Matt Savoie. His genius treatment of the high elevation property resulted in a home, where a view of expansive, deep water Rocky Bayou and the tree-lined shore of Rocky Bayou State Park is seen throughout. No houses ruin the nature view across this wide bay.The artful style is contemporary Acadian. This house is positioned on a tiny loop, where traffic is at a minimum, and serene privacy is found.Much of the inspiration for the renovations came from beautiful five-star hotels. You enter through a custom gate at the drive. There is now a French limestone mantle gracing the floating brick fireplace in the heart of the home. There is now a fish fossil "swimming" in a sea of flame aqua glass where you prepare your meals. You may choose to shower outside with river rock massaging your toes or bathe in your roomy marble bath. Outside is a kitchen, complete with blue-green granite. Around the fountain pool and spa is a natural stone decking. Near the shore is "Rick's Bench" (deck), where you can enjoy the breeze under a massive magnolia...where yoga is optional. At the end of the pier is a covered boat lift, two jet ski lifts, a shower, and a place to clean the day's catch...which you may have scored as far away as the Gulf of Mexico, which is a near as a (twenty minute) boat ride. O boy! Your water sport options are limited only by your imagination. Blackwater River is less than an hour away if you crave cool clear water. Turkey Creek, with an elevated path, and Park is a few minutes drive. Crab Island is a twenty-minute boat ride; and/or any remote beach you choose can be your very own.
