Alright gentlemen and ladies, (but in the owner s experience mostly gentlemen). Separate from the Main house, this 888 sq. feet entertainment space plus pool was built with nothing in mind but fun. Full Bar with commercial cooktop and built-in steamer. Also, subzero refrigerator and built in beverage dispenser. Fireplace of course. Room for a large screen T.V. and plenty of space for any type of party. If that is not enough, walk down 4 steps and enter a large solarium with an enormous pool. Year round water sports. Complete with two saunas. All looking at the Sea over a paver stone patio. Plenty of outdoor space for grilling. Indoor 15x40 foot solar heated salt water pool. The exterior is all Azek or glass with a fiberglass roof. No painting necessary. The perimeter of the whole building is surrounded by stamped concrete or pavement which is lit at dusk with total low voltage lighting. The east side of the indoor pool are all sliding doors with reflective finish to protect from sun with argon gas between the panes. All sliding doors have lifetime brass rollers with locking handles and screens. The pool is 3 min depth, 12 deep end. No chemicals. Pool water stays crystal clear with a salt chlorine generator. Just read the monitor and when it goes below 2600 ppm, just add 25lb bag of salt to the water. Swim in the heated pool year round at 84 . Pool water is heated 2 ways, solar or propane. Solar is used from April 1st to December 1st. When pool water is heated to the desired temperature then a valve rotates to bypass and maintain temperature. When solar can t maintain, it automatically switches to propane. Propane is used for the winter from Dec 1st through April 1st. Huge savings are realized for heating the pool water from solar panels and the pool cover which opens and closes with the turn of a key. Savings of propane purchased are realized because the homeowner owns the tanks. The inside of the pool area is heated by 2 50 infrared propane heaters which heat just like the sun. Winter month s temperature is kept at 55 and the pool cover is left open by 2 feet which provides perfect humidity and temperature for growing plants and lovely orchids. In cold winter months the infrared heat can be raised from 55 to 80 in about 20 minutes. During hot summer months, the east and west windows and sliding glass doors can be opened for cross ventilation and windows can pop out for easy cleaning. An exhaust fan on the southern wall automatically expels hot air accumulated on summer days set at 90 . Before, after or both, you have your choice of a steam sauna or infrared sauna. Sit in the infrared at 120 for 15-30 minutes and dive in the pool just refreshing. Music is available inside the infrared sauna or Bose speakers pipe music inside the pool area where you control the volume from either side. Main control is located in the entertainment area.
The outdoor patio with pavers is 18 feet deep and 35 foot long. There are 2 gas grills and a green egg smoker. No ugly gas lines because there are quick disconnect hoses to each appliance that attaches at the ceiling. There s a 220 outlet for an electric deep fryer and attached to the wall is a commercial restaurant salamander (broiler). Above the grill area in the ceiling you see 3 vents. It is an exhaust fan system to remove any smoke away from your guests with a switch control inside next to the French door. Also in the ceiling are Velux natural light tubes and 2 separate banks of dimmable lights. While gourmet cooking, listen to music with 4 exterior Bose speakers, 2 for the patio and 2 for the yard. With the 19 overhang, you can enjoy the patio in any weather condition. Note: the owner designed the patio so it can be enclosed in glass in the future as an extension of the family room with provisions for gas heat and air conditioning with minimal expense. The patio overhang reduces the cooling costs from the AM sun.
