A stunning architectural residence on more than a half-acre in the coveted, guard-gated Serra Retreat, this brilliantly updated home combines spacious bright interiors with expansive manicured grounds. Perfect for sophisticated living and spectacular entertaining, its open-plan layout offers numerous gathering places and promotes easy flow. With beautiful dark hardwood floors, huge windows, and light-toned plank-and-beam ceilings throughout, most rooms look out onto palms, open lawn, tropical plantings, and the dramatic pool and spa. To the left of the entry, two steps lead down to a great room that includes living and dining areas and opens seamlessly through disappearing Fleetwood doors to a huge dining/entertaining pavilion and the pool terrace beyond. Off the great room, double doors open to a state-of-the-art home theatre. To the right of the entry, another large space includes a family area, breakfast/lunch dining area, and a gourmet Bulthaup kitchen with an L-shaped island with breakfast bar, Miele appliances, wine storage, and clerestory lighting, with large corner windows that look toward the pool terrace. Also on the main level is an en-suite maid’s/guest/office and a laundry room. On the upper level, three en-suite bedrooms include a striking owner’s suite with very high ceiling, fireplace, two walk-in closets, a luxe bathroom, and French doors to a full-width private deck overlooking the pool terrace and gardens.
