A luxurious waterfront estate situated on one of Rio Vista’s premier streets, Ponce de Leon Drive, presents elegance, charm and superb style. This lavish home offers blends of modern and traditional elements.

It features four bedrooms and five-and-a-half baths, a custom temperature-controlled wine cellar that holds more than 1,000 bottles, a two-car garage, an outside pool area and a boat slip. Entering the French double doors, guests will be in awe from the two-story foyer with impressive contemporary Corbett chandelier that features a shell mosaic pattern and is suspended over a chic contemporary entry table and chair.

The foyer opens up to the formal living room area that is styled with modern pieces and chrome silver nightstands, as well as an elegant rolling bar cart and a painting. This area is ideal for entertaining guests after dinner.

Speaking of guests and dining, a perfect place to host an intimate dinner party is the chicly designed formal dining area. This dining room boasts a gold tray ceiling with a traditional chandelier designed with draped crystals; underneath sits the dining table that comfortably seats six. The nearby kitchen features Thermador appliances, Cambria Quartz countertops and mother of pearl backsplash tile.

As for the rooms, from the library to the guest and master suites, coastal and British colonial decor is incorporated through plantation shutters, linen curtains and beach artwork. The master suite features his-and-hers walk-in closets and an open balcony overlooking the pool and waterway. The backyard pool area offers an Intracoastal water view with outside seating and a grill.
