1040 Lewis Cove Road, Delray Beach, Florida: Just off A1A on a cul de sac street in the sought-after Seagate area in East Delray Beach, this waterfront estate is just a few blocks from the prestigious Seagate Beach Club as well as the City’s pristine award-winning beaches. This established neighborhood is also just a short drive to Downtown Delray Beach’s vibrant Atlantic Avenue, with its array of arts and entertainment offerings interspersed with fine-dining establishments, cafés and bars.
A brick-paved drive, shaded by Royal Palms, circles around a tropically landscaped island delivering a beautiful sense of arrival, and in the fenced backyard, a covered loggia, with a summer kitchen and gas grill, overlooks the pool with a spill-over spa. Offering incomparable waterfront living with 75 feet along a deep-water finger of the Intracoastal Waterway and running the full length of the property is a concrete dock with lighted posts and a boat lift that can accommodate a 12,000-pound vessel.
Striking the perfect balance between elegance, openness and warmth, this regal five-bedroom Mediterranean-style estate, with 6,812 +/- total square feet, was astutely designed with a well-conceived floor plan maximizing breathtaking water views and a seamless indoor/outdoor flow for grand entertaining. Masterfully crafted decorator details include rich Jerusalem-stone and honey-toned hardwood flooring, custom Venetian plaster finishes, and soaring 12-foot ceilings. Introducing this classic architectural gem is a 24-foot-high turreted foyer, featuring inset onyx, lighted alcoves for art display, and a graceful wrought-iron-embellished stairway. Just beyond, through a columned archway, is the gracious living room, with details that include a beamed ceiling, a gas fireplace with an impressive carved coral-rock mantel, and two sets of arched French doors that open to the poolside loggia. The dining room, also accessed from the foyer via a wide archway, features a gated wine larder, and off the living room is the pool-view custom-fitted library with an ensuite bathroom that serves as a cabana bath. In a separate pool-view wing, informal living is celebrated. Here, the gourmet kitchen, finished with high-end appliances, custom wood cabinets, granite counters, stone backsplashes, two islands and pantry, serves the breakfast alcove and family room. Upstairs, the master suite and two guest suites open to the water-view balcony. The opulent master suite, featuring wood flooring, beadboard ceiling, and morning bar, includes custom-fitted closets and a spa-inspired granite-embellished bathroom. Two additional ensuite garden-view guest bedrooms, laundry room and three-car garage complete the layout, while fine amenities include an elevator, 12-camera security and Creston systems, full-house generator, and phantom screens.
