Expansive river views overlook the serene waters  taking in the winding coastline and wooded islets reaching all the way to the 17th Street Bridge from this south-facing waterfront estate on 138 +/- feet of shoreline with a lift-equipped dock for the boater. This distinctive residence designed by architect John Binkley is approached by a sweeping circular drive that continues around to the side-entry three-bay garage.  French doors open the water side of the house to the lanai and lounge terrace by the sun-splashed pool in the backdrop of the dramatic river scene.

The well-thought-out floor-plan totals 3,933 +/- square feet including three bedrooms, two and a-half baths, and a new roof.  Stepping in from the covered entry, the foyer opens into the lofty living room rising to a tongue-and-groove-paneled vaulted ceiling and opening to the waterside lanai.  The room's floor-to-ceiling coral-stone fireplace is across from an open staircase to a loft retreat capturing a magnificent river view from inside and out on the balcony.  Across the foyer, the dining room is served by the dine-in kitchen lined with waterside windows.  Opening to the pool terrace and riverfront view, the family room has a media center and wet bar perfect for entertaining.  Brightened by a bay window filled with a picturesque river view, the private master suite opens to the lanai and features a dressing area with two walk-in closets plus a large bath with soaking tub, shower, and separate water closet.  Two more bedrooms are served by another bath.
