One of Boca Grande’s most historically significant beachfront homes with 145 ft of gulf frontage situated on approx. 1 acre of land. Originally owned by Louise duPont and Francis Crowninshield, this exquisite home was built in 1927 as a winter retreat. A 3+ year renovation combines a bygone era with new vogue as seen from imported European mosaic tiles, imported crystal hanging pendants, and chef custom designed kitchen by Chicago’s diGulio’s Kitchens. Elegant features are surrounded by shell stone floors and ceilings made from the estate’s reclaimed cypress wood. Rebuilt from the foundation up, impact-resistant windows and custom impact NanaWall® sliding doors were installed and offer wide-open views of the white sand and azure waters. Numerous water amenities surround the exterior, including a 12-foot deep swimming pool with shell stone deck, spa, restored seahorse fountain, and two reclaimed water cisterns. Renovated under the Florida Green Building Coalition guidelines, recycled and energy efficient materials were utilized. Truly a rare find, this 7-bed, 6-bath, 4,800 AC sq. ft. and 11,228 overall sq. ft. architectural jewel offers the best of Boca Grande’s Gulf Coast beauty and history.
