La Capanna is no ordinary beach house. One of the most significant residences ever created for the Gulf of Mexico, the voluptuous Floridian villa in Naples is extraordinary in every way. First comes the setting: a dreamy stretch of white sand beach and aquamarine water as far as the eye can see. Then there is the architecture itself. Crowning an Eden of palmy lawns, the romantic dreamworld dazzles you with its commanding presence, embracing some 16,215 square feet. Past the bougainvillea-bedecked entrance courtyard, a voluminous rotunda with floating staircase greets you. From here you enter the view-filled grand salon. Among other cherished settings are the bar lounge, theater, beachfront gameroom, fitness center, and his-and-her studies. Showpiece of the six bedrooms is the master suiteā€”a celestial sanctuary floating above the Gulf like a gossamer vision.
