With the ambiance of an idyllic resort villa, this alluring paradise fronts the wide Intracoastal Waterway from the shores of tranquil Hypoluxo Island where the gorgeous vista adds to the sense of relaxation in the casually elegant living spaces inside and outdoors. Framed by privacy hedges, garden gates give way to a shady walkway that steps up to this timeless island-inspired residence – secluded behind lush foliage and swaying palms – designed by the Palm Beach-based firm Dailey Janssen Architects.
From inside the center hall, this tastefully updated residence flows in a creative layout that provides versatile living spaces on both levels and gives room for sizeable groups of family and guests in six bedroom suites which are arranged for maximum privacy. Complementing the crisp white architecture, the fresh, light interiors underscore the coastal feel with airy cross-beamed and cathedral ceiling treatments above the sand-toned silver maple floors. Other examples of the exceptional millwork include the exquisite Nautilus-inspired staircase and the stylized sunray transom atop the front entryway.
French doors open both levels to breezy waterside verandahs by the terrace that rims the 70+/- -foot-long dark-bottom lap pool, with its rippling waters mirroring the effect of the Intracoastal Waterway. The poolside lounge areas and lawns capitalize on the water views, ending the day with a breathtaking sunset that makes outdoor entertaining a memorable occasion. As an added luxury, the poolside cabana bath features a hammam steam room for the ultimate wellness experience. The property’s 200+/- -foot dock gives access to excellent boating and fishing waters. Tucked away in its own private oasis on exclusive Hypoluxo Island, this stunning estate rounds out the resort lifestyle with the ocean beach and Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa only about one-half mile away.
