Underscoring the transformative beauty of nature and architecture, this serene oceanfront masterwork embodies the principles of design espoused by Frank Lloyd Wright, widely considered the greatest architect of the 20th century. Sheltering rooflines and multi-level garden terraces reinforce the intimate connection of the residence with its landscape, an alluring oasis elevated high above the ocean in Delray Beach's estate section. Zen-like tranquility fills this sublime modern classic designed by noted architect Randall Stofft and constructed in 2005 by high-end custom builder Terry Cudmore. Fine natural materials are crafted with artistic vision, rendering each detail an object of beauty. Arranged on three levels, the expansive nearly 15,000-square-foot living space is tempered with an intuitive sense of scale. Carefully selected turn-key furnishings, imported from around the world, add to the overall feeling of unity and elegant ease. Glass walls beckon to the outdoors, where lounge terraces center on an exquisite pool with river-like waterfall in the absolutely mesmerizing backdrop of open ocean vistas and the sounds of the surf.
