Entrancing waterscapes stretch far and wide from this impressive custom-built estate directly fronting the Intracoastal in Delray Beach's sought-after Marina District, just a few blocks from vibrant Atlantic Avenue's boutiques and restaurants, with the beach only about a mile away. Making a striking statement right at the palm-studded entrance court, this five-bedroom architect-designed residence masters a mix of classic and modern style in its extremely solid steel-reinforced concrete construction featuring impact-rated glass in all windows and exterior doors, and also equipped with a whole-house generator.
Inside, past the soaring foyer's floating staircase, panoramic waterfront views look out over the infinity pool - seeming at one with the Intracoastal waters - through the bright window walls of the dramatic two-story living room and versatile family/club room. Both rooms invite guests to relax outdoors by the pool or on the extended lounge space by the yacht dockage, where the views are equally stunning by day or evening, in the backdrop of the coastline's glittering lights.
Elevating the gorgeous waterfront view from the second floor, the luxurious master suite surveys the waterfront from inside or out on the balcony, and has access to the lofty sky deck, another outdoor living/entertaining space where sensational long views unfold in every direction. A fabulous feature for the car collector, the air-conditioned garage with two commercial-grade German-made hydraulic lifts can house up to five vehicles, and has front/back doors making it also ideal for storing water craft, giving access along the side of the property right to the deepwater dock which is in a no-wake zone. Whether for relaxing and entertaining at home, water sport recreation, or enjoying all the attractions of downtown Delray Beach, this extraordinary estate gives the true experience of resort living with nothing left to be desired.
