The heart of this home, the kitchen, with SieMatic cabinets, granite countertops, gas stove and Subzero refrigerator is adjoined by a spacious breakfast area that opens out onto the central courtyard, outdoor fireplace and built-in kitchen bringing breathtaking outdoors in. The family room is flooded with rich natural light from its 2-story floor to ceiling windows with exquisite water views. French doors lead out onto the open and expansive pool/spa with additional dinning and lounge space, making the multiple outdoor living spaces as inviting as the inside. The home is also equipped with an elevator discreetly hidden by the kitchen, leading just outside the upstairs master bedroom. The vision of the current owners was to create an architecturally unique estate combined with a livable private family retreat that was within minutes to the cultural hub, world famous beaches and exquisite dining experiences. It's now time for another family to make this distinct residence their own special home.
