This architectural triumph, artfully designed by Rick Brautigan, Inc., is a remarkable study in contrasts. Here hard industrial-style elements (witness the metal roof and pitched master bedroom ceiling, steel spiral staircases, built-in metal bookcases) and urban design (evidenced in the stunning master bath and sleek gourmet chef’s kitchen) are a striking contrast to the interior architectural curves, fluid exterior water elements, and lush tropical setting. The result is a design that surprises and delights at every turn.
Intrinsic to this remarkable vision is a high level of luxury, a focus on personal privacy, blended with the utmost sophistication. The creative use of open space, a split plan that separates the guestrooms and completely secludes the master suite, walls of nearly uninterrupted windows that bring the outdoors in, designer fireplaces and stylized lighting all work to maximize the emotional impact. Fiber-optic exterior night lighting, a dramatic 2-story entry foyer, industrial-style elevator, glass and steel stairs, glass-fronted cabinetry add to the urban mystique.
With the serenity of seemingly endless ocean views from the great room and master suite; immediate access to the beach; inviting amenities that encourage guests to stay and play; close proximity to the eclectic shopping, dining and nightlife along vibrant Atlantic Avenue; this ultra-contemporary residence, complete with its own private guesthouse, proffers the energy and ambiance so essential to an exceptional South Florida lifestyle.
North Ocean Boulevard, Delray Beach, Florida. Historic Delray Beach is a beautifully preserved oceanfront community in the heart of South Florida’s famed Gold Coast. Ensconced in an exclusive island-side enclave, this ultra-luxury residence is directly across the street from pristine ocean beachfront and within walking distance of the eclectic shops, cafes and restaurants that line vibrant Atlantic Avenue. It is 20± minutes from Boca Raton’s private executive airport, and 25± minutes from Palm Beach International Airport.
Situated directly across from a pristine Atlantic Ocean beach on a deep quarter -acre lot, this fenced property is introduced by a grey brick motor court, and lined with fiber-optic night lighting. It is rimmed by specimen palms and low manicured hedges and
entertaining, grilling and alfresco dining, sunning, stargazing, and the privacy to enjoy it all.
First floor: A dramatic foyer opens to a split glass staircase. On one side, an expansive media room, currently in use as a fifth bedroom, encompasses a cabana bath and a bar-style kitchenette that opens to the pool through sliding glass doors. On the other side, two other guestrooms share a bath with a dual sink vanity. A laundry, elevator and walkway to the 2-bay garage complete this level.
Second floor: An open formal dining area is served by an adjoining celadon–accented gourmet kitchen with top-tier stainless appliances (including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Gaggenau oven and steam oven, Miele gas stove with hood), glass-faced cabinetry and breakfast bar, and sleekly stylized Italian light fixtures. Steps away, an open living area with a gas fireplace designed by Dominique Imbert looks out through sliding glass doors to an oceanfront covered patio. Down the hall, glass-shelved built-ins are prelude to a library with floor-to-ceiling metal bookcases and a steel spiral staircase to the third floor master suite. Off of this second floor library, an open walkway leads to the private one-bedroom guesthouse with sitting room and ensuite bath.
Third floor: Occupying the entire third level, the master suite is a luxurious sanctuary. An expansive bedroom with sitting area, gas fireplace and metal pitched ceiling features a wall of aluminum shuttered sliders that open to an oceanfront balcony.
