The original owners Edyth and Archibald Bush, executive vice-president of 3M (Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing) Company, fell in love with the area at first glance and owned the entire peninsula at one time. Originally designed with architectural features from around the world with amenities and features in the house that are unlike anything seen before. The birdcage elevator is a duplication of the one built by Otis Elevator Company and installed in 1896 at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. The award-winning media room was featured on ABC’s Good Morning America. The award-winning kitchen was designed with your private chef in mind; a professionally equipped with commercial appliances, imported Japanese wood for custom cabinetry and seamless views to waterfalls and koi ponds. The outside of the two-story, 7-bedroom home looks like a Mediterranean villa set in a Hawaiian rain forest on the shores of a Tahitian lagoon. Behind the wrought-iron gates reveal a stone-paved driveway meandering through a landscape lush with palms, bamboo and multiple live oak trees. The back lawn was created with four waterfalls; one is a two-story waterfall from the master bath, designed and installed by artisans from Disney. The boathouse includes docking for a boat and two jet skis. Separating the house and cabana is a stone bridge over the tiered koi pond. The heated pool hosts a series of water fountains with LED lighting for the lap pool lanes and jacuzzi. Adjacent is an air-conditioned open cabana with an outdoor kitchen and wood-burning pizza oven. The summer grille is surrounded by hand-painted tiles by Cuban artist Jose Fuster that the owners hand-carried out of Havana. The estate includes a guesthouse that is fully equipped with a separate entrance from the gated service drive and integrated into the home. The back of the house service driveway features additional motor court parking service providers. The front of the house includes a dedicated gated guest entrance and paver circle drive for ease of entertaining. This home is extremely well-planned with spectacular appointments & views.
