Newly constructed ''Mont Blanc'' exemplifies a well-traveled coastal retreat featuring iconic architectural styling prominently positioned to offer an unparalleled Gulf Front lifestyle along the pristine white sand beaches of Seagrove, Florida.
Pushing the boundaries of both architectural design and fortified construction, this idyllic legacy home pairs utmost quality and artistic inspiration into a refined finished that is unrivaled in Northwest Florida. The progressive nature of this renowned beach retreat was highly curated by a team of top talent including construction by Scott Barnes Development, design and finish selections by Erika Powell of Urban Grace Interiors and architectural rendering by Archiscapes & TS Adams Studio.
Ideally located in the heart of Seagrove Beach, this legacy home was designed as a safe haven situated on one of the most picturesque beaches in the United States featuring unimpeded views over the emerald green waters and crystal white shoreline of the Gulf of Mexico. Hand-crafted design elements ignite to create a refined coastal experience through bespoke aesthetic finishes inspired by the white-washed cycladic architecture of the Greek Islands.
The front elevation is anchored by a beautiful courtyard entryway featuring sculptural architectural details as well as a tranquil water feature and lush mediteranean foliage. The private courtyard entry is flanked by three oversized garage stalls which offer premium parking as well as ample space for additional storage. Upon entry, the resplendent natural lighting is immediately realized as it cascades off tumbled lime washed stone walls that took over 18 months of construction to reach fruition. The impressive four-story vertical footprint is highlighted by a sprawling grand foyer staircase which is cast in white venetian plaster and beautifully anchors this majestic home. The colorful emerald green and crystal blue hues of the Gulf of Mexico parlay into a vibrant juxtaposition from the white-washed interior & exterior architectural facade that can be enjoyed from each level of this magnificent property.
