South Vista Del Mar Drive, Delray Beach, Florida. Just a block and a-half from the beach, this choice location on a sought-after street is also only a few blocks from Atlantic Avenue's vibrant shopping, dining, and entertainment for the best of living in this delightful village-by-the-sea.
Charmingly tucked among the trees and gardens, this authentic Old Florida estate underwent a stylish makeover and expansion in 2008, fashioning a fresh and inviting environment for modern living while maintaining its special character. For enjoying the outdoors, lush greenery creates a private tropical oasis for the lounge areas around the lagoon-inspired pool designed with an in-water shelf and a rock waterfall that spills from the spa. Next to the summer kitchen, the awning-covered lanai is perfect for alfresco dining.
Giving a light, airy feel, the easy single-level floor-plan totals 3,328+/- square feet with three bedrooms, three and a-half baths, and a two-bay garage. Warm hardwood floors flow through all of the main rooms, and the windows and exterior doors are fitted with impact-rated glass.
The airy tray-ceilinged living room lends itself to comfortable gatherings by the wood-burning fireplace preserving its original decorative tile. Off this room, a sitting area leads out to the pool terrace, and a wide archway flows into the open dining room. Encompassing an inviting family/breakfast area opening to a shady outdoor spot by the pool, the beautifully renovated country-style kitchen has crisp white cabinetry, a butcher-block-topped island, gas range, and other stainless steel appliances. The office/den has a powder room and could be converted into another bedroom if desired. Off the living room's sitting area, the master suite overlooks the pool and tranquil garden, and features a private bath plus a custom-fitted walk-in closet. The second bedroom has an en-suite bath, while the third bedroom is served by an adjacent bath.
