Jupiter Island is known to be Florida's most beautiful, exclusive residential enclave. Strict zoning and the island's storied history have preserved Jupiter Island's character and natural beauty. Cielo-y-Mar is Jupiter Island's finest new home. This post-modern poured concrete estate with 16,000 square feet under air and 20,000 total square feet was designed by Silicon Valley architect Scott Hughes. Cielo-y-Mar takes advantage of the property's unique high elevation and its location at the south end of Jupiter Island, very close to the Jupiter Inlet.Three years in the making, Cielo-y-Mar is a poured concrete masterpiece on two acres of pristine ocean to Intercoastal land with a large natural dune system. Cielo-y-Mar has a long dock with a mean average of 7.5 foot depth sufficient for a 100 foot yacht. Very close proximity to the Jupiter Inlet makes Cielo-y-Mar a yachter's paradise. Cielo-y-Mar is a poured concrete estate elevated more than 20 feet on a complex system of cement pillars built into the Jupiter Island bedrock. This high elevation allows for panoramic views of both the Ocean and Intercoastal. Also architecturally significant is the home's two story self-supporting, floating elliptical staircase, which leads to the 3,000 square foot roof deck with 360 degree views of the Intercoastal and Ocean. A large Jacuzzi tub and awning system provides for both relaxation and shade at this highest residential point on Jupiter Island. An infinity pool overlooking the Intercoastal dramatically frames the home with waterfalls. Cielo-y-Mar was built with both the highest quality materials and finishes. The home has a large custom designed Snaidero kitchen, along with a large Snaidero butler's pantry. All of the flooring in the home is hand selected Jerusalem stone, sourced by the home's builder directly from the quarry. The home is also clad in an eco-friendly, low maintenance, Ipe woodlike material that greatly enhances the architectural beauty of the home. All of the rooms have large floor-to-ceiling windows that are not only hurricane proof, but are also self-tinting. Cielo-y-Mar is the first home in the region to have self-tinting windows. This eliminates the need for curtains or blinds and provides for direct unobstructed views of the Ocean and Intercoastal. Because the windows are energy efficient and the home was built to high environmental standards, the home is fully LEEDS certified. The home has eight large bedrooms, including a master suite, and ten bathrooms. Each bathroom has a unique design. The master bathroom is completely unique, with a large walk-in shower clad in Jerusalem stone, a large Jacuzzi tub, and direct ocean views. The house is furnished with specimen mid-century and modern furniture, as well as museum quality lighting fixtures. In addition, the home includes a large collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art curated especially for Cielo-y-Mar. Included in this collection are paintings by Milton Avery, Bernard Buffet, Daniel Garber, William Glackens, John Thwachtman, and Henri Matisse. Cielo-y-Mar is also exquisitely landscaped with native plants. The landscape includes a 25 foot Eric Grate sculpture imported from Sweden. The home is very water efficient, with a 10,000 gallon cistern capturing rainwater to irrigate the extensive gardens and lawn. Cielo-y-Mar is just steps away from a 75 acre nature preserve on the very southern tip of Jupiter Island. Yet Cielo-y-Mar is close to the conveniences of Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter and Palm Beach.
