3703 Preserve Bay Blvd, Panama City Beach

This 1.6 acre property features one of the most significant and dramatic homes in The Preserve, a private, gated community that is only minutes from St. Andrews State Park and the "world's most beautiful beaches." The stunning faade of this "English manor home" is enhanced by understated landscaping and a grand entrance of finely scrolled wrought-iron gates. The entire estate features many classic details, including an old world charm that belies the fact that this home was built in 2002 at an overwhelming cost of more than $6 million dollars. From architectural design to completion, no expense was spared and only the finest materials were used in this 6 bedroom, 7 bath (plus 3 half baths) home that sprawls over 12,000 square feet. In spite of this home's. expensive price tag, it has been listed at a price well under its tax appraised value. Guests enter through large mahogany doors embellished with stained glass, into the Grand Foyer where a breathtaking marble staircase spirals upwards with three crystal chandeliers lighting the way. The artfully designed interiors boast a refined sense of personal comfort with both classic and modern touches throughout. Italian marble floors and tall, stately columns seem to contradict the many modern conveniences and sheer livability of this grand, but comfortable home. The living room is flanked by classic Ionic columns, exquisite millwork and a pocket billiards table for entertainment! This playful nod to the owner's sense of humor includes something for everyone in the game room upstairs or the fully functional dance studio and home theater for movie nights with popcorn. For quieter moments, the cozy library is perfect for curling up with a favorite book or magazine under a wooden bead-board ceiling where floor to ceiling arched windows flood the room with light. Only the aptly named, Gathering Room, rivals the library's comfort with its mahogany coffered ceiling, fireplace and custom cabinets. The entire room dances in sunlight reflected through the large windows of beveled glass. The formal Dining Room sparkles with light from a candelabra chandelier and the high-gloss wooden floors below. The room's classic design includes hand-crafted wainscoting with chair rail and the elegance of custom crown molding. The Breakfast Bar provides another cozy nook for less formal dining with seating for 6 and a built-in saltwater aquarium that's shared with an adjoining Family Room with fireplace. The Main Kitchen is even more impressive with a full array of Viking appliances, custom cabinetry and several gas ranges for large family gatherings. Finally, there's an informal breakfast room nestled in a bright bay of windows that overlooks the pool and tennis court outside. Two of the six bedrooms are master suites, the largest of which enjoys more than 1,200 square feet with the sheen of high gloss white lacquer. A quartette of Corinthian columns flanks the inviting bed and large mahogany-framed mirror just above the head board. A tranquil Buddha sits by the large marble fireplace and nearby; the convenience of a wet bar, walk-in closet, and private access to the covered loggia outside. The master bath features large bay windows, an oversized jetted tub and marble countertops that run the entire length of this spa-like environment. They say, "Seeing is believing," and this is one home worth viewing in person and one that will please even the most discerning buyers. This IS Panama City's most spectacular home, adjacent to the only Nicklaus-designed golf course in NW Florida and inside the graceful environs of The Preserve. The world of real estate is abuzz with this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity-a $6 million dollar estate, offered at a mere $2.8 million, well below the tax appraised value!
