Aqualane Shores recently made headlines as the eighth-priciest neighborhood in the nation (Port Royal snagged the second spot), and this abode exemplifies the graceful beauty of the area. Built in 2020 by Naples-based Barnes Homes, the house welcomes you with dual rows of Italian cypress trees and a brick driveway with an inlay of natural grass. The property’s stucco, stone and concrete exterior, tile roof and arch-top wrought iron gate evoke Addison Mizner’s Mediterranean design legacy in the region. Beyond the double-entry access, a courtyard greets with lush, climbing bougainvillea; pink buds frame the perimeter and front door.

Inside, an open plan features Old World touches, like natural earthen plaster walls, curved archways and exposed Florida pecky cypress beams, while the elevator and design elements from Naples-based François & Co. ensure the space lives well in a modern-day context. The homeowners emphasized quality craftsmanship, which shines through in the limestone fireplace, kitchen hood imported from Turkey and hand-painted floor tiles in the bathrooms. Fanlight windows and French doors in the primary bedroom allow plenty of natural light to pour in and a balcony overlooking the courtyard serves as a relaxing retreat.

Outside, the pool is flanked by a row of trees bordering the canal edge and a quaint outdoor entertaining space with a kitchen and big screen. The four-bedroom, four full-, two half-bath property at 475 15th Avenue South was listed by Sotheby’s International Realty for $13,750,000 as of February.
