Time-honored tradition takes on fresh modern appeal in this new masterwork that beautifully fits into its surroundings in a quiet neighborhood just north of the private Gulf Stream Golf Club. Luxury custom home specialists Seaside Builders created this island-inspired jewel in collaboration with the innovative talents of Richard Jones Architecture and FGS Architecture & Design. Set behind lantern-lit stanchions and stately palms on a spacious waterside corner property, the five-bedroom residence is the picture of classic symmetry. Careful attention to detail hallmarks every aspect of the home - from the design, proportions, and finishes to the advanced engineering techniques that meet or exceed the latest hurricane codes.
Highlighted by the graceful sweep of the hand-crafted staircase, the entrance hall leads into the light and airy living room's fireside seating space that gives great versatility for everyday use or entertaining, open to the high-end chef's kitchen that complements the home's refined, casually elegant style. French doors join both rooms to the relaxing outdoor living space that lines the sparkling lap pool in this quiet oasis secluded by tropical greenery and privacy walls. Also opening its doors by the pool, the first-floor master suite creates its own haven of tranquility complete with a versatile sitting room/office/gym plus a luxe double bath. With high standards as its signature, this is a home of lasting quality and beauty.
