1080 Lake Dr., Delray Beach, Florida: Minutes from the beach and vibrant downtown Delray Beach, the desirable Lake Ida neighborhood, an unmanned gated community studded with mature trees and verdant landscaping, is a peaceful oasis centered on a picturesque lake offering boating and fishing. Close by are two lakefront parks, one home to the Delray Beach Playhouse.
In a world of its own, set back on almost an acre off of a private cul-de-sac in the prestigious Lake Ida neighborhood, a brick-paved driveway leads through tropically landscaped grounds to the motor court and three-car garage. In the back, an expansive lawn extends down to 110 +/- feet of Lake Ida waterfrontage, where a boat house and full-service dock make this estate perfect for boating and water-toy enthusiasts. Inviting indoor/outdoor living, an open-air loggia and a screened loggia with a summer kitchen overlook the lake-view heated salt-water pool.
Presenting as a tour-de-force reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright’s unmistakable panache, the façade of this Randall Stofft-designed masterpiece is set off with impressive stacked-stone columns and banks of sliding doors topped with bands of clearstory windows, bathing the interiors with luxuriant ambient sunlight and offering lake and garden views. Under a canopy of banyans and set within lovely landscaping dotted with palm trees, the stunning Contemporary-Mid-Century-style, five-bedroom estate, with 7,353 +/- total square feet, was designed to elicit a light-filled breezy vibe and chic sophisticated sensibility, with details that include high ceilings, terrazzo and new wood flooring, new LED lighting, and a new wine room, complete with its own cooling system and stacked-stone finishes. The foyer, modernistic stairwell, and handsome stacked-stone embellishments provide an impressive entry point to the living room, with a welcoming wood-burning fireplace, and just adjacent are the dining room, bar, and kitchen, finished with contemporary custom-wood cabinets, Dekton counters with a leather finish, tile backsplash, professional-grade appliances, and large island accommodating seating. With a split-bedroom plan for privacy, double doors off the living room lead to the primary bedroom with floor-to-ceiling windows offering lake views. The suite includes two custom-fitted closets and a spa-inspired bathroom. Upstairs, a loft and morning bar access the large lake-view balcony and serve two ensuite guest bedrooms. Off of the dining room, a separate entrance with its own staircase leads up to the guest apartment, comprising a bedroom and an office/bedroom that accesses a sun deck. Other details of note: a new roof was installed in 2020, and full-house generator was installed in 2021.
