Linkhorn Bay Deepwater Home Auction
Linkhorn Bay deepwater home with enough amenities to make any size gatherings special. No expense was spared by the sellers to create a luxury home with plenty of outdoor living and boating opportunities to keep a crowd happy. Inside, the home’s great room is a central gathering point and offers expansive views of the grounds, pool and cove through six palladium windows that soar to the 35-foot ceiling. During inclement weather, hidden hurricane shutters can be electronically engaged to protect the windows and the occupants. A 14,000-gallon freshwater aquarium anchors on side of the room and a seating bar at the adjacent kitchen is on the opposite end. The great room opens to the grand, marble columned entry with double sweeping staircase to second level.
The kitchen, with Alno custom cabinets, features a 13-foot granite island, Miele coffee station, Subzero and large eat-in area. The cooking area has an attractive hammered copper wall with a pot -filler faucet and Thermador six-burner stove with double ovens. From the kitchen is access to an elevator that serves all four levels of the home, a small room that could serve as an office or wine room, and the formal dining room. At the end of the kitchen is a large service/catering set-up area with roomy prep space, sink, double oven, warming drawers, microwave and large Subzero freezer and refrigerator. A service entrance in the hallway leads to a powder room and oversized kitchen utility/storage room featuring walls lined with open shelves.
Also on this level is one of three master suites. The space can function as a master bedroom for extended family members, a large office or live-in quarters for domestic staff. On the opposite wing of the home on the main level is a full, luxury bathroom and large bar/billiards room.
The second floor is anchored by two master suites on each end and two family/guest bedrooms, all with private baths. The primary master features a sitting area, fireplace and wet bar with mini-fridge and freezer. The slightly elevated sleeping area is a custom-built unit with sleek, exotic woodwork and lighting. A built-in television nook is at the foot of the bed, or occupants can use a larger drop-down video screen on the opposite wall. The master bath features extensive use of high-end stone surfaces and luxury shower with body and rainfall showerheads.
Two guest rooms have private baths and one has access to back balcony. The third master bedroom is located next to a small study and has cathedral ceiling, walk-through closet, two balconies and access to service stairwell down to billiards room. Also on the second level is an oversized laundry room that can accommodate dual washer and dryer units. A third level holds a surprise bonus area with full shower, two large storage rooms and artist’s studio with windows overlooking the water. The elevator to this level aids in the storage and moving of seasonal items and large storage bins from other parts of the home.
Also up for auction is a rare opportunity to acquire a deepwater building lot in this established community. Lot previously contained a 1920s home that was razed in recent years, creating a scenic building site in the nook of a quiet cove. Linkhorn Bay frontage has bulkhead and wetlands area below.
