Island Drive, Delray Beach, Florida. Offering Delray Beach living at its finest, this deepwater estate sits just off the Intracoastal, a short distance from the Atlantic Ocean beachfront. Less than a mile to the south, charming Atlantic Avenue provides cosmopolitan boutiques and restaurants as the centerpiece of vibrant downtown Delray Beach.
Totally rebuilt in 2005, this exquisite waterfront estate was created by Delray Beach-based architect Perez Design and builder Fine Construction. British West Indies style takes on modern ease in this casually elegant residence, flowing south to the outdoor entertainment area in a tropical oasis on 100 feet of shoreline with 80-foot yacht dock. Centered on the infinity pool with spa, covered and open lounge areas feature a summer kitchen, full cabana bath, and romantic fireplace.
Fine finishes and stylish accents combine in a flexible layout totaling 6,081 square feet with 4 bedrooms, 7 full baths, 2-bay garage, Brazilian cherry and marble floors, and impact-rated windows and exterior doors. Introduced by a serene fountained courtyard, the large living and dining rooms flow openly, centered on a sleek double-sided gas fireplace. Appointed with media/storage built-ins, the living room leads to the waterfront loggia, while the dining room opens to the courtyard. The dine-in chef's kitchen has glass-front cabinetry, granite counters, a KitchenAid refrigerator/freezer, Fisher & Paykel dishwasher drawers, and Miele 5-burner gas range, double ovens, steam oven, and coffee system. The bookcase-lined paneled library/office opens to the waterfront patio, with a full bath adjacent. Three first-floor bedroom suites include one leading to the waterfront patio. Opening to 2 waterside balconies, the second floor is entirely devoted to the ultra-luxurious master suite complete with a sitting room, 2 walk-in closets, and 2 separate baths - one with jetted tub and both with walk-in shower and towel warmer.
