This custom West Indies house, home of a noted New York design couple, feels like an oasis in Palm Beach. Located on one of the most discreet and quiet streets of St. Armands. Lined on both sides by magnificent Royal Palms. The house is classically proportioned but is built to modern construction standards including a raised elevation. Design-wise it is classically conceived with remarkable contemporary architectural touches. Just steps from the shopping and dining of St Armands Circle and an easy walk to the beach. The home is a cheery light filled, tranquil oasis. Sumptuous terraces on the front and back invite outdoor living into your life. A dramatic, custom built “St Barth’s” railing finishes the exotic terraces with rich wood trims and end-caps. Privacy is enhanced by lush landscaping along all perimeters of the property. Inside the home, 11’4'' high ceilings, arched doorways, gracious French Doors highlight the generously proportioned rooms of this tropical cottage. Discreet cabinets and custom wood work belie the simplicity of the home's interior rooms. The home is loaded with authenticity: Solid wood floors, brick and stone fireplace, custom tall casement windows and French Doors to the terraces. A kitchen for "cooking and not just looking”. Separate Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer. Separate Pantry with tons of storage, wine fridge, two kitchen sinks allow for multiple work areas, and plenty of storage for the dedicated entertainer and food lover. Custom, solid wood cabinets and butchers block counters ease the needs of the cook when so inclined. In keeping with the home's unique design: the layout converges around a Grand Hallway reminiscent of Caribbean Great Houses. Two En-Suite master bedrooms are oriented around this central living area, but are located on either side of the gracious home. Each bedroom has its own patio. One bedroom has convenient “His and Hers” closets. Between the two-bedroom areas, is the core: the dining room, living room and kitchen, the center spaces of the cottage's elegant lifestyle. The symmetry of this unique home is underscored by the large living room that has 8’ glass doors facing the front and the back overlooking the luxurious 50’ lap pool. The working fireplace adds warmth and charm during the cool winter months and adds festive charm to holiday gatherings. Bathrooms feature Carrera Marble counters, Travertine floors, and Waterworks fixtures. The house features many surprising built-in storage cabinets and closets as well as a delightful dayroom area (for lounging and reading) just off of the kitchen. The wide, generously proportioned terraces catch both the morning sun and the dramatic, colorful evening sky. Additional amenities include: Sunbrella awnings, wooden pergolas, “coral” stone stairs and patios. Old world brick pavers denote the auto court. Extensive landscape lighting makes the property magical in the evening. A comprehensively planned irrigation system and mature landscaping lend a quality of maturity and permanence. Ease of maintenance is accomplished with a deep well for all irrigation. A massive 12‘high hedge guarantees the exclusivity of this rare Sarasota gem. This is the first time this home has been made available for purchase in its history. A singular estate, a compact up to date, masterpiece of planning and design. Worth a look for sure, as it will attract the most cosmopolitan and sophisticated buyer.
