In this family-friendly custom estate, more is definitely more. The lushly landscaped, circular pavered drive is a warm welcome to the open floor plan wherein intricate architectural millwork and clean, elegant interior detailing pair harmoniously with contemporary finishes and floors. The residence is family-oriented yet stylishly formal, with abundant storage and thoughtfully distributed areas that are welcoming rather than intimidating. Accommodating the home on a uniquely located, oddly shaped site was challenging, as concrete neighborhood entry monument signage and a 35′ landscape buffer prevented its design as a typical corner house. The building team placed garages on the home’s right side to maximize curb appeal and allow full appreciation for its front exterior. A 14-foot glass opening at the formal living room with high tray-vaulted ceilings offers views to the outdoor living area. The main hallway has aligned windows and art walls off the foyer, which wraps around the formal living room into the family area. The entry and formal living room were raised to a two-story ceiling height to gradually escalate in proportion to the upper story, creating symmetry between the two. A formal parlor with stone fireplace looks out to the outdoor living area. Motorized pocket sliding doors connect the family room and outdoors, an engineering challenge solved by a masterpiece of concrete and steel. The kitchen features two islands, custom stone breakfast table, dining table for 12, wood-carved bar, and Florida mudroom. The master suite includes a lushly landscaped, garden-style outdoor shower with custom pergola. Behind each master bath vanity mirror is a television, perfect for binge-watching favorite shows from the luxurious soaking tub. Each guest en-suite leads to the home theatre with built-in playhouse and arcade games. The outdoor living area features a resort-style pool accentuated by a round, center sunken fire pit with custom seating, multiple fire and water features, hot and cold spas, swim-up bar, and sun deck. A spiral staircase from upstairs balcony to the pool deck completes the mix.
