102 Basin Dr., Delray Beach, Florida: In Delray Beach’s prestigious sought-after oceanside north-beach neighborhood, Ocean Breeze Estates, this stunning residence is on a large corner lot, just one block to Delray Beach’s vibrant Atlantic Avenue, and three blocks to the town’s award-winning pristine beaches.
A private tropical haven hidden behind high hedges, yet the closest Intracoastal property to Delray Beach’s downtown Atlantic Avenue, a circular drive leads through the gated entry to the courtyard, with a beautiful fountain at its center. A yacht enthusiast’s dream, with 111 feet on the Intracoastal, the 90-foot dock is equipped with two boat lifts. In its beautifully landscaped back yard with an expansive lawn, covered loggias overlook the pool and overflow spa set within a brick-paved patio.
Awe-inspiring sunset views over the Intracoastal Waterway are a marvel at this European-inspired hidden gem, with five bedrooms and 8,987 +/- total square feet. Offering a serene light-filled voluminous ambience, decorator details include saturnia marble, cherry-wood and bamboo floors; coral-stone columns; graceful archways and soaring 20-foot ceilings. Delivering a dramatic entry experience, double mahogany doors open to the foyer and tower stairwell, and then expands out into the elegant two-story living room where a massive stone-carved fireplace welcomes, and a wall of arched impact glass windows view the pool with the Intracoastal as a backdrop. Creating a great flow for entertaining, also adjacent to the foyer are a wet bar as well as the formal dining room, with French doors that open to the front-courtyard gardens. For casual gatherings, the family room, topped with a soaring tongue-and-groove pecky-cypress ceiling, features two sets of French doors that access the loggia, which is adjacent to the pool. For more subdued occasions, the library offers a beautiful place of refuge, embellished with cherry-wood floors, rich wood paneling and custom built-in cabinetry. The gourmet cook-island kitchen is fitted with white custom cabinets, black granite counters, professional-grade appliances and an Intracoastal-view breakfast area. The split-bedroom plan places the primary suite on the first floor, with French doors opening to the pool and offering Intracoastal views. The suite includes two custom-fitted walk-in closets, and a spa-inspired Saturnia marble bathroom. Serving the four guest bedroom suites and gym on the second floor is a living area overlooking the living room, and over the three-car garage is a theatre room with a projector, eight theatre seats, black-out blinds and wet bar. In this elegant estate, a wonderful lifestyle awaits.
