Only a few months after being put available on the market, 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 Growth and designer Erika Powell of City Grace Interiors final yr. The 9,051-square-foot property overlooking Seagrove Seashore’s Emerald Coast and is modeled after the Cycladic structure seen on Greek Islands corresponding to Santorini and Mykonos.
The all-white shade scheme, broad terraces and floor-to-ceiling home windows are supposed to replicate 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, instructed Inman again in July. “While you look out, you see no different buildings, simply that deep blue aqua shade 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 Might’s numbers, in line with information supplied by Spears and Morar.
Whereas Florida’s Emerald Coast is residence to a lot of costly houses, 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 thus far.
