Creating a lovely arrival with a garden terrace at its arbor-covered entry, this Palm Beach-inspired estate gives the sense of a serene, secluded realm on spacious, walled and gated grounds within the guard-gated privacy of the sought-after Sunrise Intracoastal community, only about a mile from the beach. Designed by noted Fort Lauderdale architect Vernon Pierce, the carefully maintained four-bedroom main residence and companion guest house surround the pool in the estate's graceful compound-like environment.
Once inside, the classic staircase is a key architectural element of the foyer, where Doric columns define the comfortably elegant living and dining rooms on either side, both lined in tall French doors that provide wonderful garden views, natural light, and ventilation. In an excellent flow for entertaining, the living room, gourmet kitchen, and family room all open out to lounge areas by the placid pool, where a lanai and garden pergolas are part of this beautiful setting, with sweeping lawns giving added room for enjoying the outdoors. On the second floor of the main residence, the bedrooms are arranged off of a loft-style sitting room/office, and feature the spacious and well-appointed master suite. Hidden away in the scenic quietude of Sunrise Intracoastal, this exceptional estate is hallmarked by high standards in a classic style that transcends time.
