The Bimini, a 4,528-square foot custom designed luxury home, is located at 400 Gulf Shore Boulevard South in Old Naples, just one block from the white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.

The exterior of the residence includes a steep flat tile roof, solid wood corbels and expansive porches. The open floor plan’s high ceilings are designed to draw tropical breezes through the home, while vertically proportioned windows and doors allow natural light to penetrate the spaces. Intricate floating beam ceiling details are included in several spaces, most notably in the great room, and used to conceal the HVAC system’s registers and returns. The contemporary ceiling detail in the great room includes a painted drywall beam flanked by two smaller beams. The ceiling inserts are painted in a contrasting color to bring in the blues & greys found in the room’s fabrics.

A study, four bedrooms, four full baths and a powder room compliment the home’s main living areas.

Lush landscaping and a tropical-themed pool area with water features, a spa and fire bowls create a romantic environment, ideal for entertaining.

“This residence is ideal for those who enjoy both the beach and the dining and entertainment venues on Fifth Avenue South and Historic Third Street South,” said BCB Homes COO Scott Weidle. “There is a view of the beach from the second floor. Despite the site’s modest size, John Cooney has designed a spacious, comfortable home with an Old Florida architectural style. We feel Ficarra’s interior design will be very well received. It has a coastal contemporary feeling with an edge that today’s buyers find appealing.

Update: This stunning home sold after only 10 days on the market, for its asking price of $6,295,000/turnkey furnished. The price per foot was a whopping $1,390 which sets a new high water mark for a non-beachfront home in this area. Further, this represents the second highest sale in all of Olde Naples for 2014.
