Cf-1403This fully furnished, unique town home/loft in the 1921 Citrus Soap Factory at City Front Terrace has been completely renovated by noted designer/owner. Only brilliant imagination and creative talent can produce an exquisite remodel and capture the warmth and charm while adding contemporary flair and modern conveniences. Situated along the urban canyon of City Front, this home opens to a stone terrace and the peaceful sounds of the 128 foot water feature and mature trees and shrubbery.

Once inside, the exposed brick and wood beams reveal the historic authenticity of the Citrus Soap Factory. The rest of the residence owes its character and style to the vision and talent of the designer/owner. Starting with bare walls and floors, this entire unit has been transformed into an elegant yet comfortable home with state-of-the-art materials and custom mill work and cabinetry. A true gourmet kitchen, complete with a professional Viking range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, warming oven, built-in espresso machine and more than ample storage cabinets and drawers will inspire even the novice chef. The first level features French limestone flooring and a custom built fireplace, enlarged and designed to incorporate antique corbels and mantel. A 100 TV screen is controlled remotely to descend from the ceiling and motorized blinds help create a complete home theater environment.

The second floor continues the pattern of extensive use of wainscoting and crown molding throughout the gallery hallway and bedrooms. Both bedrooms have remodeled bathrooms ensuite that incorporate traditional elements with modern luxury. The bedrooms also have floor to ceiling mullioned windows overlooking the peaceful setting of treetops and the soothing water feature. This exceptional residence needs to be seen to be appreciated. For those who expect and appreciate the best, this is the place to call home.
