Magnificently poised on a pristine 2.57 acre stretch of the Gulf of Mexico, you will find Ohana, a breathtaking tropical hideaway inspired by the spirit of Africa and southern Indonesia. Envisioned by the owner and brought to life by acclaimed Architect Guy Peterson and Master Builder Michael Walker, Ohana is a truly rare private retreat composed of an enclave of organic structures that extend to meet the Gulf with a hardened seawall, preserving privacy and ensuring protection from natural erosion. The residence encompasses three impressive pavilions reminiscent of a Balinese luxury resort, with the central iconic pavilion providing transitional space for extended family to enjoy the incredible living areas, and for guests to discover their stunning private beach house. Masterfully finished, the principle home presents unparalleled living spaces lined by an open roof top terrace, where endless views of the shimmering Gulf evoke the sense of a remote island paradise. Natural coral stone courtyards and walkways lead gracefully to the outdoor living areas, brimming with exotic palms and native plants as designed by world-renowned landscaping architect Raymond Jungles. Enjoy a game of tennis from the private court, a refreshing swim in the free-form pool with elevated spa, or entertain in spectacular style as you dine al-fresco beneath the grand palm thatched canopy looking out to the horizon. Take a few steps toward the shore to miles of white sandy beach, where days are beautifully-spent soaking up the Florida sun; which seems to shine just a little brighter over Ohana.
