Gulf Stream, Florida. Established as an exclusive winter resort in the 1920’s, Gulf Stream is a hidden gem in the heart of South Florida’s fabled Gold Coast. This quiet oceanfront hamlet, prized for exceptional quality of life and historic charm, is served by a winding stretch of Ocean Boulevard, canopied with Australian pines, that has been designated a Historic Scenic Highway.
Picturesque, gracious, and just one block from the ocean, this elegant residence presides over a lushly landscaped half-acre, with a welcoming brick-paved motor-court entry. In the fenced back yard, the covered loggia with a fireplace overlooks the large salt-water pool, brick-paver patio and expansive lawn. The adjoining grass-carpeted 100-by-150 /- foot lot is perfect as an additional yard or as a separate new-build site.
A wonderful Georgian-style six-bedroom estate, with 8,125 /- total square feet, presents as the epitome of understated elegance, paring sophisticated clean-line decorator detailing with impactful eye-catching allure. The stunning renovation, conducted by designer Angela Reynolds, built upon an open floor plan with refinements that include coffered ceilings, bespoke molding, and new wide-plank wood floors. In the elegant foyer, the graceful curved staircase introduces a sense of drama, and the adjacent salon, an intimate formal living area, is crowned by a coffered ceiling, and centers around a gas fireplace. Arched display cabinetry flanks its main entryway, and French doors open to the front courtyard, which is shaded by stately old-growth banyan trees. Features in the formal dining room include a peaked ceiling and walls finished in beautiful fringed grass cloth. The gourmet kitchen is fitted with handsome black-and-white-checkered marble flooring, professional-grade appliances, bespoke custom cabinetry, Calacatta-gold marble counters, and a center island topped in pewter. Just adjacent, the luxurious family room, which is highlighted by an impressive marble-embellished gas fireplace, features a beamed ceiling, built-in bar, and banks of arched French doors that lead out to the expansive back yard. In the master suite, which emanates serenity and luxury, the gas fireplace with marble mantle, flanked by built-in bookcases, provides a magnificent focal point, and French doors open to beautiful views of the pool area. Its marble-appointed bathroom is finished with a multi-head shower and a free-standing soaking tub, and the suite includes a stunning lady’s office, themed on a black color palette set off with touches of soft pink. On the second floor are four guest bedrooms, one of which has a French door that opens to a Juliet balcony.
