Masterfully arranged on two lots along a prominent village street, this extraordinary property offers ultimate privacy within a unique setting. The home’s vibrant architecture and expansive light-filled living spaces express a sophisticated contemporary style. Throughout the ground floor travertine floors and light walls create a serene back drop for art. Telescoping glass doors slide out of sight seamlessly connecting interior spaces to the extensive courtyard garden, which functions as a large outdoor room. A voluminous living pavilion appears to float above the long beach-entry pool, visually connecting the main house and guest house structures. The large, well-equipped kitchen and family room with Boffi cabinetry and stainless steel countertops is oriented to capture long views of the stunning pool courtyard. Upstairs, the generously-sized master suite connects to spacious his-and-hers dressing rooms with custom cabinetry. A guest bedroom and bath complete the second level. A private two-bedroom guest house with outdoor fireplace anchors the far end of the pool. A wine room is part of the garage configuration, which accommodates three cars and a golf cart. The garage wing is designed to permit a carriage house addition, should the need arise.
Designed by Clemens Bruns Schaub, this home has been recognized by the American Institute of Architects with an Honor Award of Excellence and a Top Buildings in Florida Award, and has been covered by numerous design publications, including a recent 9-page feature in Florida Design magazine.
