What does the large Italian stucco house with floor-to-ceiling windows and doors look like inside? That's what passers-by in Florida's West Coast development of Palmetto Point in Fort Myers often want to know and what designer Eli Mordehay relishes in, having met the ultimate standards — his own.

Step inside, and there's a grand entrance to a 7,300-square-foot space that is surprisingly open and accessible to dynamic water views from all rooms.

Working alongside builder Michael Flaherty, Mordehay called upon his experienced eye for detail in bringing elements of surprise to a residence that boasts a game room, a theater room and a negative edge pool with built-in barstools and a waterfall. “What I like in a design is that there is always something to discover,” the designer says. “Every time you enter a well-designed space, you should notice a little something different.”
