Only a few months after being put in the marketplace, a Florida mansion impressed by the white homes of Santorini has bought for $14 million.
Nicknamed Mont Blanc (French for “White Mountain”), the beachfront property was constructed by Scott Barnes Improvement and designer Erika Powell of City Grace Interiors final 12 months. The 9,051-square-foot property overlooking Seagrove Seashore’s Emerald Coast and is modeled after the Cycladic structure seen on Greek Islands akin to Santorini and Mykonos.
The all-white coloration scheme, large terraces and floor-to-ceiling home windows are supposed to mirror the close by ocean and supply what seems like boundless views of the water.
“The primary flooring seems like Mykonos after which by the point you make it to the highest flooring, you’re in Santorini,” Jonathan Spears, who co-listed the property with fellow Sotheby’s Worldwide Realty agent Blake Morar, advised Inman again in July. “If you look out, you see no different constructions, simply that deep blue aqua coloration of the ocean.”
Listed in July for $15 million, Mont Blanc closed for $14 million earlier this week to an nameless purchaser. The quick sale might have been spurred by the explosion in demand for coastal, spacious homes outside urban areas in the course of the pandemic amongst prosperous consumers — in June alone, gross sales in Emerald Coast rose by 318 p.c in comparison with Could’s numbers, based on knowledge supplied by Spears and Morar.
Whereas Florida’s Emerald Coast is dwelling to numerous costly properties, the asking worth of this property stood out as one of many highest within the space. Mont Blanc’s sale makes it the costliest new development sale within the Florida Panhandle up to now.
