Rare is the opportunity to own a property that brings together the best of both worlds. Watch the sun rise over the sparkling waters of the Atlantic Ocean while enjoying morning coffee. Relax with a glass of wine while gazing at a technicolor sky as the sun sets over the Intracoastal. It’s all possible in Manalapan, a tranquil island community located just minutes to the Palm Beach International Airport.
The dream becomes reality with the offering of this dazzling coastal residence. Strategically positioned on 1.6 acres, the property encompasses 178 feet of oceanfront and 178 feet of the Intracoastal affording endless views throughout the 11,673-square-foot estate. Designed on three levels by Randall Stofft Architects, the home is a statement of architectural artistry with the utilization of unique elements and the finest finishes and fixtures. Rest assured no expense was spared, nor any detail left untouched in the creation of this waterfront masterpiece.
The foyer, with its 25-foot ceiling and sweeping staircase, is a grand introduction to the interior plan, which capitalizes on scenic vistas through walls of glass. Entertaining spaces include elegantly appointed living and dining rooms and a spacious family room. Guests flow easily outdoors to an expansive terrace where a heated 49-foot swimming pool, fully equipped kitchen, beachfront firepit and a 60-foot boat dock welcome hours of fun in the sun. The generously-sized kitchen easily hosts any occasion with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, an abundance of storage and adjoining butler’s pantry with wine chiller, refrigerated and warming drawers.
Sanctuary awaits in the master suite with its panoramic views and luxurious his and hers baths. A private office with fireplace, fitness room and a guest suite arrayed with a kitchenette and separate entrance complete first level accommodations. Upstairs are four en suite bedrooms—each with balconies—and a view-inspired gathering lounge. A club room on the lower level is the ideal venue for casual gatherings with its state-of-the-art sound system, built-in cabinets and wet bar.
Completing the layout are numerous systems for additional comfort and convenience including an elevator, natural gas and a generator that services the entire home. Epitomizing the Florida lifestyle in all the finest ways, this seaside retreat includes complimentary membership to the resort-style amenities of the La Coquille Club at the Eau Palm Beach Resort.
