Discover this Key West, Victorian home designed by an award winning architect for himself, & is the original owner. Located in the ''Oaks at Indian River'' subdivision. This home is built to withstand 170 mph winds with 2 story concrete construction, heavy duty strapping to hold down the roof, & impact windows. Imagine not having to worry or prepare for a hurricane. The exterior is also low maintenance Hardie board cement siding, Hardie board cement columns & Hardie board cement exterior ceilings. So there are no concerns of rotting or mold infested wood to be replaced. The metal roof is the longest lasting roof on the market & shown to be the best roof in a hurricane area. This house was designed to be extremely energy efficient, with minimal windows on the south face & west facing walls to lower the heat gain. A foam insulation has been used so the attic is cooler, & the block walls have been filled with a latex foam to provide 2.5 times the energy efficiency & a superior soundproof rating of a typical block home. When you move in, you'll be ready to entertain in the extra-large kitchen with granite slab countertops, & a pass thru to the screened enclosed patio. Run down to the dock for some fishing or hanging out under the tiki hut. Beach your wave runners or tie up your boat to the dock for the day & you are ready to enjoy the inter-coastal waterway. If you prefer a day of peace & quiet. The house was designed to provide a quiet, peaceful sanctuary from the back patio. Sit back & watch the rabbits, tortoises, cranes, Egrets & assorted wildlife in your own backyard. This is a one of a kind home with 4 bedrooms, extra-large 3 car garage, & 2 Wood Burning fireplaces. Custom walnut built in bookcases, & hardwood flooring. It has a reading loft & stair well that used reclaimed pilings from the original dock that was damaged in a hurricane to incorporate the history of The Oaks into the home.
