When choosing an island home, one of the most important details to consider is your view and the comfort from which you will be able to enjoy it. West Wind entirely exploits its water's edge location, offering unobstructed northwesterly views toward Boca Grande Pass.West Wind is a two-story, three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home built high on pilings, with command presence. On the ground, you're 11' under the first floor, in a vast open area shrouded by tasteful white lattice. Within this area is a large, elevated and enclosed storage room with ramp. A golf cart fits inside with ease offering a healthy amount of remaining space for other items. Astride the storage room is a 40 KW propane generator for emergency backup, which is fed by a 500 gallon outdoor tank. Outside, on the water's edge is a 15'x35' heated swimming pool wrapped in Brazilian hardwood decking. Deeded, deep-water dock space is included in the sale. Its dock slip is located at a brand new dock just down the shoreline and can accommodate boats of 42'. Entering the first living floor, you're greeted by a large, open living area with waterfront views beyond the numerous French doors as its backdrop. Those doors open up to a large, partially-wrapped, screened patio which features a grilling station complete with a stainless steel grill. The chef's kitchen is adjacent to the living room and is appointed with robust granite countertops and dark wood cabinets. The refrigerator is a spacious Sub-Zero. A large guest bedroom with private balcony and full bath overlooks the property's lush landscaping on the south side. To round-out this floor is a laundry room, half bath and plenty of storage. The second story features two bedrooms, the dominating Master Suite and one which would be perfect for young children but would also serve nicely as an office. The Master seems to have been built around its amazing views of the water. Outside the French doors is a grand master balcony towering over the shoreline, a perfect vantage point to observe dolphins hunting on the shallow flats and their prey scattering for safety. An opulent master bath has both a large glassed-in shower as well as a whirlpool bathtub. His/hers sinks laid in plenty of counter space, a private toilet cordoned off with a pocket door and huge mirrors creates a safe environment for more than one person at a time.
