Property size: 4,836 square-foot home has four bedrooms and four bathrooms on 1.6 acres of land, including 150 feet of waterfront, a private pier, two-car garage, boat storage shed and outdoor pool.

Unique details: This property combines the natural beauty of Harness Creek with a modern home built on design precepts popularized by the architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The deep-water private pier has multiple boat lifts, a convenient on-pier boat storage shed and extends over water that’s eight feet deep. The home and pier are also located in a so-called “hurricane hole” or area protected from strong winds and waves. There are multiple ways to enjoy the views: from the swimming pool surrounded by travertine tile, from deck chairs ringed around a fire pit overlooking the water, from the long and rambling outdoor deck or, on chilly days, from the comfort of a screened indoor porch. Landscaped gardens provide beds for growing native wildflowers or heirloom tomatoes.

The house exerts its own impact, beginning with its entryway. Visitors approach massive, double mahogany door while walking beneath a curved roof suspended in midair. The interior features such in-demand materials as tiles and cabinets from Spain and wood flooring from Italy with 7-inch wide planks. In addition to high-end appliances, the chef’s kitchen shows off a countertop made from a 6-inch chunk of black granite with white veins, as well as a central breakfast bar topped with a slab of cherry wood. The minimalist interior has a wood-burning fireplace, wet bar and wall after wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. Every bedroom has a water view.
