About 225 Western Lake Dr

Timeless elegance and luxury await inside this magnificent home and carriage house in beloved WaterColor. Cool whites harmonize with driftwood-finished hardwood flooring while artwork reflects the coastal ambiance embodied in each carefully curated space. Hand-picked furnishings and designer finishes create an enviable living space rarely seen outside the pages of glossy home magazines.Designed by Thurber Architecture, the home encourages an indoor-outdoor lifestyle, flowing seamlessly through a wall of fully opening nano doors to the private courtyard and pool. A grand salon is intended for entertaining yet incorporates an intimate sitting area and fireplace. High clerestory windows add natural daylight to this spectacular open living space. Move into the upscale chef's kitchen where quartz countertops, St. Charles cabinetry and professional-grade appliances are complemented by a frosted glass pantry. Pendular lighting elevates casual dining at the breakfast bar to a higher status for serving evening cocktails and canapes. The interior design successfully mixes and mingles antique-style chandeliers and natural elements with modernist stainless steel handrails on the sweeping staircase. An elevator services the three main floors including the decadent master suite on the third floor with its own spa-like master bath. The top floor is a tower room, specially designed for enjoying stunning views at sunset. Created for multiple generations to share, there's a separate carriage house above the garage for guests to enjoy their own luxurious quarters. A private entrance leads to this delightful pied-à-terre with its own kitchenette, bedroom and full bath. The terrace is a place for relaxing by the pool where azure waters bubble lazily at the foot of a mosaic wall and water cascade. Alternatively, find your own quiet nook on one of the multiple porches spread across all four levels. Beaches, parks and boardwalks are nearby. WaterColor is known for its first-class amenities including a private beach club, Camp WaterColor and gulf-front dining. This pristine home has never been rented out but its location makes it ideal for enticing renters in the high-end rental market. For investors, the property delivers incredible projected income.
