A stunning architectural residence on more than a half-acre in the coveted, guard-gated Serra Retreat, this brilliantly updated gated 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, steamer oven, 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. Above the two-car garage there is also a guest suite with a built-in day bed, bath, and peekaboo ocean view patio. Situated behind an automated gate and equipped with Crestron home automation which controls the temperature, music, TV, and lights throughout, this is a property of exceptional quality and beauty in an unbeatable location.
