Among the most unique new construction projects on the market is this floating residence in Naples asking $9.975 million.

Designed by architect Gerald Yurk of Architecture Artistica, the home at 2211 South Winds Drive was built on over 280 pilings and features floating walls, which hover a half of an inch above the floor while displaying a recessed shadow line, like so:

The 10,300-square-foot lakefront residence took over three and a half years to build and is a product of Lime International Developments. It has four bedrooms, five bathrooms, an office, views of the water from every room, 200 feet of water frontage, and 30-foot ceilings in the living room.

Additional details include a custom gas fireplace with a programmable LED crystal interior, imported Italian trim-less magnetic doors, volcanic limestone flooring, European cabinetry, Spanish porcelain wall tiles, and a 3,500-square-foot deck with 190 feet of frameless glass railing.

“Engineered to cantilever over its own private lake, the home truly feels like it floats with water views glistening from every room,” said listing agent James W. Bate of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty. “An incredible feat of engineering and precise, painstaking design, the home encompasses the very latest styles in modern international products. Clean and minimalist, the homes detail is discreet yet exceptional.”
