Just over the Bridge of Lions, near the tip of the Davis Shores peninsula, you'll find this elegant and stately French Baroque manor home with a slate Mansard Roof. Boasting 215 linear ft of Intracoastal/Matanzas Bay frontage (total lot size is .81 acre), enjoy your panoramic views of Porpoise Point, Vilano Bridge, Castillos San Marcos Fort and Historic St Augustine - dolphins, birds and boaters offer ever-changing views! Circular driveway and classic entry beckon you into the foyer, complete with checkerboard marble, gleaming wood spiral staircase and your initial introduction to the sprawling 4300+ sq ft on the main floor. So many options to entertain friends and family: open formal living room, the generous game room, the over-sized dining room, warm family room (with wet bar and temperature-controlled wine room), breakfast room and kitchen that quench and surpass every chef's dream (Viking range, Built-in fridge/freezer, warming drawer, half-moon buffet, etc)! The office also has views of the waterway. Also downstairs are three ½ baths, steam room, walk-in shower/dressing room, laundry room, butler's pantry and storage closets. Upstairs you'll find approx. 3000 sq ft for the loft area (and Juliette balcony), the guest bedroom (with en suite bath), primary suite with enormous closet and bath. The Sitting Room (non-confirming 3rd BR) may easily be enclosed to create another primary suite with its own en suite bath, generous double closets and a spacious balcony which offers expansive views of the backyard and Bay. You must note the crown molding, wainscotting, door casings and a myriad of other wood millwork artistry/designs throughout this home! The backyard begs you to throw lavish events and parties with a covered cabana (450 sf with summer kitchen, warm wood ceiling and plenty of room for seating), sparkling pool and hot tub (not currently connected to heat source) and lush green lawn. The decking for the dock was damaged but report (on file) shows concrete pilings to be sound. Electric Hurricane shutters on back of home and cabana, as well as Rampart flood defense system. Dining room chandelier and firebox and Antler chandelier in Family Room do NOT convey
