Gated and walled with unsurpassed views of Lemon Bay, this five-bedroom estate in Englewood Gardens delights the senses with fine details and the charm of a bygone era. Fine craftsmanship is evident throughout the sweeping estate, from manicured gardens to a regal yet friendly interior of soaring ceilings, marble and wood flooring, water views, and architectural nuances. A magnificent grand staircase entreats the eye and a 360-degree open foyer and floorplan allow abundant natural light to flood the many venues for everyday living and entertaining. Living areas are complemented by floor-to-ceiling windows with transom detail or stately fireplaces, while a spacious kitchen provides a refreshing atmosphere for whipping up family favorites with broad windows overlooking the water, stainless steel appliances from Sub-Zero, cooking island, and breakfast bar. The adjacent dining room also continues the narrative of outstanding water views and invites festivities outside with its neighboring patio. All bedrooms are generous in size, offering an en-suite bath and access to the patio overlooking the Bay, but the master suite is truly exquisite with an enormous walk-in closet and private patio to enjoy morning coffee. A stately office is perfect for remote work with wood floors and custom built-ins, and a neighboring gym promotes health and wellness.
