Welcome to one of the finest homes on Bayou Texar. This contemporary folk Victorian home has storybook turn-of-the-century curb appeal with a charming composition of forms and detail on its brick exterior. Constructed in 1992 by prominent builder, Ed Rose, this extraordinary residence sits on 1.24 acres of beautifully treed and landscaped grounds that gently slope 500+ feet to the water. Exquisite interior appointments and classic design reflect the recognized architectural talent of Miller Caldwell of Caldwell and Associates. The interior is consistently themed with period correct detailing while creating a clean relaxed atmosphere steeped in classic southern elegance and manner. Enter through the impressive custom mahogany door into the elegant 30Ã¢â¿¬â¿¢ long central hall foyer with 10Ã¢â¿¬â¿¢ ceilings, extensive crown molding and repeated arches and immediately sense a blending of indoor and outdoor through expansive French doors and windows. A music room, living room with fireplace, dining room, handsome office with floor to ceiling bookcases, grand family room (20Ã¢â¿¬â¿¢ x 36Ã¢â¿¬â¿¢), butlerÃ¢â¿¬â¿¢s pantry and fabulous kitchen are found on the first floor. Remodeled in 2011, the team of Kyle Watson and Tip McAlpin created a true Ã¢â¿¬Å¿heart of the homeÃ¢â¿¬Â쳌 kitchen & dry bar. The large solid cherry center island houses microwave drawer, ice maker and additional storage. Double ovens, Bosch dishwasher, gas cooktop, trash compactor, White Springs granite and twin glass front display cases. This unique home transforms into a splendid plantation style raised cottage at the rear overlooking Bayou Texar reminiscent of coastal cottages in Louisiana, Charleston, or even the Florida keys. Exquisite timber detailing on both the front and extensive rear porches include paired columns with stout balusters and arch elements creating well crafted, highly social and functional spaces to enjoy the Florida climate.
