Be sure to check out the Video Tour! Introducing 24500 Kayakers Path, an exceptional Echelon custom home, thoughtfully positioned with two lots for space and privacy, in the sought-after community of The Peninsula on the Indian River. Combining costal living with indoor and outdoor Mediterranean cues, a commanding exterior elevation rises up with a dramatic dual staircase articulated with robust balusters to welcome guests into a covered portico. Impressive entry doors with a sweeping arch atop are layered with iron and glass, setting the stage for what is to come inside. With interiors reminiscent of an Italian villa, a generous, two-story foyer is embellished with a deep coffered ceiling that is artfully crafted on a diagonal and is repeated in the pattern on the stone floor tile below. Arrival is celebrated in the piazza-styled entry foyer wrapped by a dramatic winding-stair; .and sided by a formal study clad in rich wood paneling, library built-ins, and a gas fireplace. With light streaming from a Palladian window, the extended foyer is flanked by a formal hall punctuated with engaged columns, mini-coffers and chandeliers that unfold as a foreshadow to the inspiring two-story great room beyond. Bathed in the light from a wall of stacked windows and atrium doors that frame panoramic views of the Lingo Creek and the Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course grounds, the great room boasts paired chandeliers and diagonal coffering on axis with a generous cast stone fireplace on one side, and a pair of strong architectural columns and arched opening inviting family and friends into an experiential, Italian cook's kitchen like none other. A dramatic barrel-vaulted brick ceiling presides over an expansive contrast entertainer's island, secondary-island, and professional appliances, luxuriantly finished in cabinetry panels and stainless steel. Spaces that radiate about the gourmet kitchen at the heart of the home include a waterside breakfast room with a stone fireplace and wood plank ceiling, a banquet-sized dining room with Venetian plaster over raised-rail and stile wainscoting, and a fully outfitted butler's service pantry. This extraordinary floor plan together with architectural details and unifying elements are purposed to create spaces for grand-scale entertaining, while a private owners suite wing is outfitted with a cove-lit ceiling, fireplace, wet bar, sitting room, balcony and luxury bath that provide perfected main level living. The main level is completed by a finely finished elevator that services all three levels. Upstairs, there are four ensuite bedrooms, each with a private bath, walk-in closet, and balcony to enjoy magnificent views from sunrise to sunset. On the lower-level, high ceilings, full daylight, and an exceptional space plan invite additional living and entertaining with amenities at every turn. A second kitchen stands at the ready for large or catered gatherings and is located conveniently behind a central wet bar. Serve guests in the adjacent dining room toasting special moments before taking in a movie in the fully outfitted theater. The perfect completion to the thoughtful design of the lower level includes the library and music room, a nanny's office, a game room, and hobby room with abundant storage and organization options. Outside, a gas fire pit, and patio are surrounded by water views, seasonal blooms, and lush green grass that expands into an adjacent lot for more than generous outdoor living. Bring your dreams and come home to a very special lifestyle in a very special place on the Delmarva Peninsula where everyone of every age will enjoy bountiful adventures!
