Set behind manicured privacy hedges, a realm of graciousness is discovered in this gated Mediterranean-inspired estate, facing south on a sheltered waterway just off the Intracoastal. Luxuriant palm-studded gardens surround the picturesque four-bedroom residence, lending an idyllic sense of serenity everywhere.
Inside the inviting foyer and throughout the interiors, the atmosphere is understatedly elegant, with island-style influences adding a comfortably relaxed feel. Rich Brazilian cherry floors lay the groundwork for the light, airy living areas appointed with welcoming fireplaces, furniture-style built-ins, and accents of both clear-finish and pecky cypress.
Radiating in an effortless layout off the central gallery, the formal rooms, casual spaces, and main bedroom wing all center on the lushly secluded outdoor entertainment area by the waterfront. Here, a loggia opens by the sun-splashed pool, next to a pavilion-like outdoor "living room" with summer kitchen. Outfitted with a boat lift, the large ipe dock completes the property. Tucked away on a quiet street, this beautiful waterfront estate is the perfect expression of Gulf Stream's gracious lifestyle.
