Modern Modena

Our feature listing for this week comes from Celia Dunn Sotheby's International Realty: 140 Modena Island Drive in Savannah! This stunning contemporary designer home was built to rigorous standards with concrete foundation and steel framing augmented by a minimalist approach that embraces a free-flowing floor plan enhanced by soaring atrium with interior and exterior balconies – a magnificent marriage of form, function, light and space.

This architectural wonder has 3 bedrooms, 3-1/2 baths. The master bedroom features remote-control blinds, a huge walk-in closet and a master bathroom with built-in soaking tub, Carrera marble vanities and breathtaking river views. Dance across the expanse of Argentine red-clay tiles in this stunning, sunlit, live-oak-inspired contemporary house, built to exacting standards in 2004 and offered for sale for the first time since! Vast crystal-clear clerestory windows throughout offer magical, multi-story vistas of the Wilmington River and beyond, live oaks above, palmetto trees and marshes stretching for miles – Nature inviting you to party as you delight in the music of ocean breezes, fountains, pools and amazing amenities inside and out.

This unique island home offers the finest Spanish cedar, Ipe hardwood, stone and glass built-ins and superior appliances – two SubZero refrigerators, a Fisher Paykel range top — steel cabinets and sinks, wine storage, sound systems – a “visual ecosystem” custom-built to ensure hosts’ and guests’ tranquility and delight. White spiral staircases lead up and down to bedrooms, library, substantial laundry, exercise room and three-car garage. Wood-framed glass doors slide back-and-forth to afford a swim, a sunbath, even an outdoor shower.

This amazing 6,364-square-foot house in Savannah’s exclusive gated Modena Island community, just minutes from historic downtown with its restaurants, shops, museums, galleries and cultural activities, is a once-in-a-lifetime discovery for the discriminating homebuyer who will appreciate all that this coastal Georgia property offers.
