Acquired excellence has been achieved with the exquisite architectural design of 214 N. Charles Street by Domin Bock Architects & Fouquet Interior Design. No detail was spared with design and fixtures & finishes. This incredible home looks upon one of Alys Beach’s most intimate greens, Papilio Park. Sight lines from the generous 3rd level roof terrace provides views of the Alys architecture accented with Gulf of Mexico views. 5,745 square feet of elegance delivering 5 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms and 2 powder bathrooms.
Meticulously bound in all details, 214 N. Charles Street encapsulates grandeur and functional living for partial or primary residency. Indoor & outdoor living comingle creating compatibility into one space, taking full advantage of the home’s numerous outdoor gathering locations. From the courtyard with pool & grotto spa, both heated independently, private terraces from bedrooms, punctuated by the 3rd level with media/entertainment room opening to the expansive covered roof terrace. The owner will have elevator access to all 3 levels of the home.
Entry to the residence captivates one immediately standing beneath 15’ trayed ceilings with cascading Venetian Plaster from ceiling to floor. The ceilings provide overwhelming volume and reflections of natural light illuminating the Venetian Plaster which cascades on the 32” x 32” Glassos tile flooring. Ralph Lauren chandeliers create elegance in the evening. The picturesque setting of the courtyard is viewable from most all rooms.
The home’s first floor astonishes the most design savvy accentuated with custom millwork boasting interconnected living & dining rooms and gourmet kitchen anchored with a La Cornue professional range flanked on each side with individual Sub-Zero freezer & refrigerator. An intentional Mosaic tile backsplash frames the setting of the large marble slab island as the kitchen’s focal point. Preparations are found in the Butler’s pantry outfitted with dual wine refrigerators, microwave, & flush mounted coffee & espresso maker. Exquisite and extensive custom cabinetry & hardware provides stately use for the chef in mind.
Entertaining après dinner transitions to the courtyard loggia outfitted with gas fireplace, wet bar, a visually pleasing fountain, having a private outdoor full bathroom. Captivating views abound as guests look to the courtyard pool and spa grotto.
Transitioning to the second floor takes one to another design element not yet seen. Oak stair treads cast with Mother of Pearl risers connect floor to floor with large EF San Juan windows adding to the anticipation of what is to come at the 2nd level. Immediately greeted by a parlor yielding a secondary media room and wet bar, framed by floor to ceiling windows looking upon the courtyard below and views of Papilio Park add yet another gathering space. Each of the home’s 5 bedrooms, with en suite bathrooms, greet one with their own individual design character casting peaceful refuge for owner and guests. The primary suite is like none other. Sights are set on courtyard views below in conjunction with Papilio Park from interior space or the private balcony. The beautifully atoned fireplace is the anchor point for this luxurious primary. Marble abounds in the primary bathroom hosting a soaking tub below a designer light fixture with separate shower. The primary closet is something to behold. Mirrored custom cabinetry set within custom millwork, vanity station, hidden safe room, and one of three laundries found in the home accentuate this home’s amenities.
A separate, detached guest suite accessible from the home or via exterior private stair access is perfect for longer term guests. This suite is designed for comfort & serenity having its own personal kitchen, living room, and laundry enthroned with tall ceilings complimented by custom window treatments.
Capping the amenities of 214 N. Charles Street, the 3rd level of the home further emphasizes its livability showcasing a media/entertainment room with wet bar opening to the very generous roof terrace suspended above the Town with summer kitchen. The roof terrace has a covered roof allowing for anytime usage. Views of the Gulf of Mexico and the architectural roofscapes of the Town are stunning from this location.
In addition, the home has parking for 5 vehicles & additional guest parking. This property is a must see.
