One of the finest Intracoastal estates in Delray Beach's Seagate, a sought-after beachside neighborhood, this impressive point estate looks up and down the waterway from its commanding site fronting 229± feet on a picturesque expanse of waters. Custom built in 2010 by Rowe Construction, this timeless masterpiece was designed by BE Design Associates with casually elegant spaces that capitalize on the spectacular waterfront setting cloaked in gorgeous foliage. With the enchantment of a tropical island resort, the fabulous outdoor entertainment space is served by two summer kitchens - one on the main loggia and the other by the romantic rock grotto and infinity pool that seems to merge with the Intracoastal Waterway.
Set behind ornamental gates and stucco walls laced with espaliered vines, the stately six-bedroom residence gives a fresh, sophisticated expression of classic style in each beautifully scaled room of the sizeable floor-plan. All of the main living spaces radiate off a grand foyer soaring to a dramatic hammer-beam ceiling, and all lead to the outdoors. Upstairs, the stunning master suite opens to a waterfront loggia where spiral stairs beckon to a roof terrace amid breathtaking views. Private guest quarters are in the connecting carriage house. A paragon of fine design and resort-like luxury, this Intracoastal point estate is an alluring paradise in Seagate, within walking distance of the beach and private-membership Seagate Beach Club.
