For decades, New York–based architect William Georgis has designed residences for powerful, discerning clients, creating bold architectural statements with interiors that are ideal for art collections.
This distinctive four-bedroom home on Burnett Creek and Mecox Bay is no exception, with its dramatic double-height interiors, clean modern lines, prevalent use of glass and mirrors, eye-catching accents, and vibrant pops of color.
The great room — which includes areas for living and dining — is anchored by a whimsical fireplace and enveloped by expanses of windows revealing a relaxing view. In the family room, a wall of glass opens wide to the seductive swimming pool and patio, blurring the lines between indoors and out.
Sophisticated and impeccably outfitted, the chef’s kitchen features sleek stainless-steel appliances, stainless-steel countertops, and stylishly modern honey-hued wood cabinetry.
In the upper-level master bedroom, a wide window offers a serene view of calming waters and treetops, and a light-filled spalike bath is en suite.
Guest bedrooms — one of which currently functions as an office with smart contemporary built-ins — have balconies and verdant views.
Hedged and gated for privacy, the one-acre property enjoys an elegant water-side patio with an outdoor kitchen, a heated saltwater pool, a cabaña, and a bulkheaded waterfront and dock.
Nestled amid maple trees, the guest cottage is an enchanting retreat with a traditional pitched roof, one spacious bedroom, and a mirrored exercise room or studio.
