In a category all its own, this Mediterranean-style waterfront estate will capture your heart not only with for its numerous stylish features but particularly for its panoramic and fiery sunset views and the sparkling Upper Padre Island lights at night.
Built originally as the builder’s personal home, it’s no wonder the attention to detail and quality features are present at every turn. It is very clearly custom designed for luxurious and maximum indoor-outdoor living. It was this and the privacy of Cane Harbor that lead owners Victor and Dee Jae Schreck to purchase this home after retiring here from successful careers in Dallas. Dee Jae’s father was involved in the dredging of Padre Island, so she grew up coming to the area and knew it was a place she wanted to eventually live.
From the time you pull up to the circular drive and enter through the iron and glass entry doors, you will see the magnificent foyer along with a backlit wall of windows that offer breathtaking views of outdoor living at its best. Playfully peeking behind mature palms, you can begin to understand why the siesta is historically common throughout Mediterranean cultures. Relaxation just flows over you in the serenity of this home, outfitted in calming travertine tiles and teal accents.
A handsome sandstone fireplace is the centerpiece of the home, standing tall and nearly reaching the top of the stately 25-foot ceilings. Colorful marble tiles surround the fireplace and bring out vibrant accents and shine. At the center of the room is a 500-pound sandstone coffee table. The homeowners love to rearrange the furniture in their living room as variety IS the spice of life; however, the table stays in its place.
Ornate cabinetry work in the kitchen offers elegance alongside its gourmet appliances and adjoining rounded breakfast salon and glamorous family room. Custom plantation shutters prep up each window creating that warm homey feeling of exceptional, classic craftsmanship. James Sandel at SunQuest Shade and Shuttle Shoppe was the only one able and willing to take on the custom shutter job, paying such close attention to detail that each and every shutter lines up perfectly with the others.
The resort-style backyard takes full advantage with its twinkling tiled in-ground heated pool and bubbling hot tub. Bring on the boat! The lift, remote controlled, is capable of hosting a 10,000 pound boat. Be captain of your big ship and the king of your big castle. Catch dinner right off your dock as the fish swarm toward the submerged green fishing light strategically placed below. All surrounded by beautiful custom landscaping with mature palms.
