Surrounding the Lueders limestone structure, a broad lawn is accented with stately palms and enclosed by a stone wall that creates a private sanctuary.
Entering the home through the stone courtyard you will be greeted by a soaring wall of windows looking out over the front lawn; warm light streaming in sets a wall of burnished sapele paneling aglow. Designed for spectacular entertaining, this striking formal living space flows down the hall past a wine room/bar where guests may pause for a glass of wine, then turn to admire the massive stone sculpture fountain visible through the stairwell windows with lights at the base to make the water glisten in the evenings. Past the sleek, industrial-inspired kitchen a second living area is sunken for a cozy conversation space. The adjacent dining room is specially designed for a unique entertaining experience with a hibachi grill built into the table and integrated vent hood. Another wall of windows looks out over the pool and lush trees beyond.
Up the floating, glass-railed staircase lies the sumptuous primary suite. The unique loft design offers a view over the living room to the city skyline sparkling in the distance. Preparing for the day will be a joy in the sunlit, marble-clad bath and oversized walk-in closet. A pocket-door-enclosed secondary suite includes a paneled sitting area, private bed and bath and its own patio overlooking the lawn. Two additional bedrooms on the main floor each enjoy an en-suite bath; one is also well-suited for use as an office with pocket doors for added flexibility.
The property also includes a separate guest house with city views, floor-to-ceiling windows and featuring a kitchen, bath, and loft bedroom.
