Time-honored traditions are refined for luxe modern living in this stylish island-inspired estate residing on the signature street of Delray Beach’s Seagate estate section, where the ocean’s alluring sands and the private Seagate Beach Club are just a couple blocks away. Graceful palms and espaliered vines frame the courtyard entrance to this five-bedroom residence designed by the boutique firm Richard Jones Architecture and expertly crafted in 2014.
Giving a feel of sophisticated ease, the casually elegant living spaces segue openly from one to another in a fresh, light environment grounded by rich oak floors, with clean-lined custom millwork as another signature element. Looking out on the lush backyard oasis, glass walls create a seamless indoor/outdoor flow with sliding doors opening to the lanai and terrace that inspire a sense of relaxation by the sun-splashed pool and tall stands of greenery. The main level also provides a private bedroom suite plus an office that could serve as a sixth bedroom if desired. Looking out on the poolside treetops from upstairs, the master suite is romantically refined with a lofty wood-paneled tray ceiling and has wardrobe rooms on either side of its luxurious bath. Embodying the ideals of a seaside home, this picture-perfect Seagate estate also features impact-rated glass, natural gas service, a metal roof, and sophisticated security system to ensure peace of mind.
Seagate Drive, Delray Beach, Florida.

In the heart of South Florida’s Gold Coast, between Boca Raton and Palm Beach, Delray Beach is known as a charming village-by-the-sea and a resort destination featuring pristine “Blue Wave” beaches.
This timeless island-inspired estate is beautifully presented on groomed lawns with brick walkways approaching the walled entrance courtyard. Glass sliding doors open the southeast side of the house to the lushly secluded outdoor oasis by the sparkling heated pool and spa which have a remote-controlled AquaLink system. The inviting lanai is perfect for relaxing by the pool.
Clean-lined millwork, handsome oak floors, and impact-rated glass are featured finishes of this custom-built residence totaling 5,958+/- square feet in a comfortable floor-plan with open living areas, five bedrooms, four full and two half baths, an office, and a two-bay garage. Architectural ceiling treatments highlight many of the rooms.
First Floor: By the classic staircase, the open foyer leads into the main living area that brings the outdoors in through a wall of glass sliding doors along the poolside lanai. Open to the main dining area, this airy room also leads into another large open space that combines the kitchen with the casual dining area and family room where wraparound glass sliding doors completely open out to the lanai and pool terrace. Floating built-in shelves frame the family room’s media wall. Done in crisp white cabinetry with Cambria Torquay quartz counters and a decorative stainless steel backsplash, the kitchen is outfitted for the gourmet chef with a large island/bar, walk-in pantry, Thermador appliances including a gas range and double ovens, plus a U-Line wine cooler. The mud room and cabana bath are adjacent. On the other side of the living room, the powder room is next to the inviting office that could double as a sixth bedroom if desired. Facing the pool terrace and back garden, the private guest bedroom has an en-suite bath.
Second Floor: Off the loft-style gallery overlooking the foyer below, a vestibule enters the spacious master suite encompassed in a private front-to-back wing. Wonderfully relaxing, the airy tray-ceilinged master bedroom looks on the treetops from above the pool and back garden.
Two custom-fitted wardrobe rooms are next to the luxurious marble-finished master bath featuring a pedestal-style soaking tub, glass-enclosed multi-head shower, dual vanity, and private water closet.
