About 1350 Peninsula Drive

The area's most admired waterfront estate is being offered for the first time in decades. The nearly 7000 sq. ft. home plus guest home and outbuildings are situated beneath ancient oaks atop a bluff on a private 2.7 acres of rolling terrain with an unheard of 248' of intracoastal frontage. Designed and constructed in 1953 by Dr. Harris of The Harris Corp as the company ascended on the area to start the space program, the home's building methods were the absolute best available without regard to expense and the incredible integrity and craftsmanship is immediately evident as you enter the home today. While the home was designed to entertain a large crowd it retains a rich, warm atmosphere among the gracious living spaces that make up the nearly 4000 sq ft of ground floor living. Continued..A second spectacular living room offers a south wall comprised of a series of arched casement windows allowing soft southern sun to filter through the majestic oaks while the abundance of glass brings the outdoors in. This space measures 53'x14' and sprawls the entire southern end of the main home offering views of the River, the south lawn beneath an oak hammock and the breathtaking courtyard garden to the east. An arched entryway opens to the lounge with a handsome handcrafted wet bar constructed of mahogany, brass and marble. Two wonderful dining rooms to choose from with a proper formal dining room featuring splendid millwork and a second more casual dining space to accommodate overflow guests or to enjoy breakfast or a casual supper overlooking the gardens. The custom solid cherry and marble kitchen with top of the line commercial grade appliances extends into a substantial butler's pantry that was designed to double as a caterer's prep space. Take one of two staircases or the elevator up to 3 complete bedroom suites including the 1,141 sq ft waterfront master suite with his and her private baths and dressing rooms. The upstairs family room (could serve as a 4th bed) is an incredibly pleasant retreat with double sets of French doors that open out to the expansive 2nd story lanai that overlooks the grounds and river while welcoming ocean breezes from the Atlantic Ocean just two blocks away. Just outside the back door is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath guest home with a drive through chauffeur's garage. An additional 3 car detached garage has a modest apartment and a 4th building is a historic garden house believed to date back to when the Woodruff family of The Coca Cola corporation owned the property. This property has been maintained in impeccable condition by it's longtime current owner and is in need of nothing. Deepwater dock within the No-Wake Zone could be modified for a large yacht.
