An immersion in luxury, this captivating estate, which emanates charm, elan, and sophistication, is sited on 1.3 /- acres of tropical gardens with controlled gated entry and privacy wall, and an added allure, an adjacent ¼-acre lot, included inside the estate area, offers the opportunity for future expansion.

A Delray Beach crown-jewel classic and one of the first mansions built across from the beach on A1A in the mid 1990s, this opulent traditional-style, six-bedroom, 16,076 /- total-square-foot estate, is flawless in every aspect and devised to please and pamper. Stunning, elegant, and Florida chic, interiors exhibit outstanding master craftsmanship, fine custom woodwork, bespoke specialty moldings, architecturally detailed ceilings and gorgeous highly polished marble floors. On the main floor, designed to radiate around a marvelous foyer and stairwell, rooms open to either the east-facing veranda overlooking breathtaking ocean vistas, or loggias offering spectacular garden views. Fronting the ocean, the grand living room and great room both proffer the cordiality and charm of fireplaces, and the distinguished library features handsome Cherry Wood paneling and bookcases. The elegant formal dining room is finished with custom cabinetry for china display, and the epicurean’s kitchen is fitted with stainless high-end appliances, custom wood cabinets, two cook islands, Maryland Green marble counters and backsplash, pantry, and a breakfast bay, overlooking the loggia and pool. Upstairs, in addition to three guest bedroom suites, the stunning master suite is an oasis of tranquility, with French doors leading to two balconies offering ocean views, and the centerpiece of the lavish marble spa-like master bathroom is an oversized inground 8-person Jacuzzi.
