South Florida Estates

By Alyssa Mammano

Somewhere southern within the state of Florida, city lights fade into morning skies as rhythmic music emanating from nightclubs along the downtown strip dissolves into the early hours of dawn. As some retreat back home after a night on the town, others wake for a forenoon jog through blocks of towering skyscrapers.

Moments outside the city, you stand before the Calacatta marble countertop of your kitchen island enjoying the last few sips of tea from your favorite mug, while watching your children finish their breakfasts. After their final bites, you hurriedly encourage them to their rooms to change into their uniforms and pack their lunches for the school day.

You and your spouse hastily approach the front foyer as your children descend from the double staircase. With a quick embrace, your family steps out onto the brick path and makes their way to the garage. A security camera refocuses to capture the movement as the oversized door raises to reveal your daily drivers. The kids load into your SUV as your partner slowly backs the convertible out, stopping to lower the top down and revel in the amiable Florida weather.

Departing the motor court, you meander through the winding drive lined with palm trees to approach your gated entry. Along the way, you pass modest lakes and flowing fountains encircled by meticulously kept greenery and colorful blooms. A gathering of blue herons basking in a body of water languidly lift off and waft away as you drive by.

As the gate closes behind your vehicle, you turn onto a road that runs parallel to the beaches. Your children watch the waves roll up onto the shoreline and elapse back into the tide, intently searching for sea life among the waves. A pair of dark shadows advance beneath the surface as your children point and exclaim the presence of and manatee and her young.

The balmy Florida breeze flows through as you ride along with the windows down, taking in deep breaths of the salty air. A colorful sky painted with the warm hues of the sunrise reminds you of your gratitude for the ability to live in one of the most breathtaking scenes of the south.

If this is the lifestyle of your dreams, be sure to find your south Florida estate home in the properties to follow.
