3046 SE Dune Drive, Stuart, Florida, United States, 34996
The grandeur of Tuscany comes to Sailfish Point in this majestic Italianate villa, situated on a pristine two-acre site with 300 feet of Atlantic shoreline. From its hand-made barrel tile roof and cypress beam work to its extensive colonnaded indoor and outdoor spaces, this exceptional residence is replete with a dazzling array of exotic materials and finishes, offering a feel of effortless luxury and comfort.
The villa makes its entrance with an expansive, balustraded motor court surrounding a European style garden, complete with fountain. The formal entry, an arched mahogany doorway with custom wrought iron detailing, brings guests to a mezzanine landing inside the home, flanked by two curved, marble-clad stairways finished with an ornate iron and brass railing. The landing, which opens to each of the villa’s two floors of living space, features a custom mosaic created using a selection of the semi-precious stone found throughout the home.
At the top of the stairs, a spacious arched hallway, punctuated by a decorative cloistered ceiling, is lined with the hand carved Mexican limestone columns found throughout the residence. Just beyond, the floor’s formal living spaces come together in the Great Hall, which combines living and dining areas under a soaring cathedral ceiling with trusses crafted from reclaimed chestnut timbers. Panoramas of the sand and surf unfold through the bank of French doors leading to the upper patio.
The expansive kitchen off the Great Hall is ideal for entertaining, with a Thermador cooktop and ovens, a Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, a Miele dishwasher, warming and beverage drawers, and a butler’s pantry/bar. Granite countertops provide a rich finish to the custom cherry cabinetry. A massive coffered ceiling unites the kitchen with the adjoining casual family living area.
Down the hall, a wood paneled study includes capacious and cozy window seats that are cantilevered from the second story. The study, which also includes a full bath and closet, can double as a guest suite.
Completing the second floor is the master bedroom suite, with a built-in armoire, creamy Venetian walls, loggia access, and a bay window designed to capture the ocean views. The bath is finished with lapis lazuli countertops, Jacuzzi tub surround and shower walls. A pastoral mural in muted tones completes the luxurious look of this personal space. The adjoining master sitting room offers the convenience of a full laundry, apron sink and refrigerator.
The ground floor centers on the home’s second kitchen and adjoining game room, opening directly to the pool/spa. With its commercial grade kitchen and built-in bar with seating for eight, the space provides a casual alternative for everything from family get-togethers to catered affairs. Three additional guest suites each offer private baths with Jacuzzi tubs, dual vanities, walk-in closets and direct loggia access.
Inspired by the Palladian Villas of Italy and custom designed by Dailey Janssen Architects of West Palm Beach, this must-see residence offers its owners and guests unstinting luxury in an unsurpassed location.
