This stunning direct Intracoastal Waterway Estate on the eastern shore has a coveted South Ocean Boulevard address and all the splendor of Highland Beach's prestigious Byrd Beach, including a private gated deeded beach access for only a select few!
From its bello salmon palate and copious use of marble, to its fanciful balconies and trellises, it exudes the brand of Mediterranean panache that defines the best of South Florida architecture.
In the heart of the prestigious Byrd Beach neighborhood, this home distinguishes itself with an eclectic blend of old-world themes with modern touches. It rises from the waters of Florida’s own Grand Canal, with direct Intracoastal frontage and no fixed bridges impeding access from the boat lift to the ocean. Ownership of this home affords private, gated Atlantic Ocean beach access for you and your four-legged friends, just a short stroll away.
Twin statues with hints of mystical origins greet all who enter here. They are just the beginning of the Delightful surprises that await. The grand foyer features 11-foot pecky cypress entry doors, a two-story ceiling and an inlaid marble floor. Don’t overlook the tiny gargoyles on the door handles! The wide water view, extending north, south and west, entreats passage into the living room and salon, which join to create a huge forum for entertaining. Indoor and outdoor spaces meld as view and movement flow through French doors onto the expansive pool deck and waterfront patio. Opulent draperies, intricate coffered ceilings, recessed lighting, art glass fixtures, a gas fireplace and a wet bar are but a few of the amenities that create a relaxed, luxury lifestyle.
The sun-kissed gourmet kitchen features a window wall overlooking the dazzling waterway. Delights for the chef include a six-burner Viking Professional natural gas range with griddle and a pot-filler faucet, dual built-in ovens, a Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, a two-drawer dishwasher and a programmable Meile coffee center. Countertops and a breakfast bar are granite; Mediterranean tile backsplashes and old-world custom cabinetry give this kitchen refinement in function and style. Experience waterfront dining at its finest in your eat-in kitchen or dine al fresco on the deck. If you prefer, enjoy meals in the elegant formal dining room.
Take the oak staircase or the wood-paneled elevator to the second floor, where the entire northern end of the home is filled with the dramatic master bedroom suite. This bedroom reflects the success of its owners: Gifts of hand and nature include the deeply coffered ceiling above and spectacular panoramic vistas. Step through French doors to the trellised balcony for even more stunning views of water, sunsets and moonsets. Glass double doors lead to an extravagant master bath: dual sinks, granite countertops and vanity, privacy windows, separate shower with body sprays and Jaccuzi whirlpool bath.
A broad, oak-floored hallway-loft and three more spacious bedroom suites complete the second floor. Each bedroom has a finished walk-in closet and well-appointed full bath. Surprise accoutrements include striking granite countertops, a barrel-tiled bath ceiling, bedroom vanity and more.
Tucked behind the roofline on the third level is an enormous room that could serve almost any purpose under the sun. Accessible by stairway or elevator, this hideaway offers the home’s most commanding views from its private balcony. It includes a charmingly retro 1920’s-style full bath and a wet bar with refrigerator. Currently a home office/den, it could function as a gallery, a game room, a VIP guest suite, staff housing, a studio for art or dance...the possibilities are limited only by one’s imagination.
Downstairs, use the French doors or the cabana bath to access the waterfront, heated pool and spa. Extend the sun shade with the push of a button to enjoy lounging on an instantly covered patio. The walled and gated back yard is enclosed on three sides, but open to the wide Intracoastal Waterway to the west. The wall to the north, adjacent to an expansive green space, is glass to maximize the view. The ground floor includes both a two-car garage and a single-car garage, each with a pecky cypress-clad door to match the soffits and entry door. Also on the ground-floor are a laundry room and pantry, complete with wine cellar. Naturally, this house is equipped with a central vacuum, a security system and a sound system. The home has impact windows and doors throughout.
Highland Beach is an exclusive seaside community at Boca Raton’s northeast shoreline that was named for its uncommonly high dunes that offer extraordinary views and natural protection from the sea. This tiny Municipality is gathering acclaim for its high-tech approach to thriving in a changing world. The town’s new state-of-the-art Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Facility draws from the deep “Floridan Aquifer” over 1,000 feet deep, assuring residents unlimited pure water and freedom from water restrictions, even in drought conditions. Other amenities include art classes, literary discussion groups and concerts at the community center. The town also has a new library and post office, and provides 24/7 police, fire and paramedic services.
Midway between Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale, Highland Beach is in the heart of everything wonderful! Fine restaurants, social clubs, galleries and boutiques are an easy drive up A1A in picturesque Delray Beach or across the bridge in posh Boca Raton. For the sports enthusiast, world-class golf, tennis, polo and boating are equally nearby.
Florida’s Turnpike and I-95 are just minutes away, providing easy access to three international airports for worldwide travel. Seasonal residents, guests and business travelers also appreciate the short drive to Boca Raton’s Executive Airport, just 4.5 miles away.
