709 SE 10th St., Delray Beach, Florida: In the coveted Rio Delray Shores neighborhood on a quiet cul-de-sac adjoining Knowles Park, this residence is situated a mile south of Downtown Delray Beach’s vibrant Atlantic Avenue with its arts and entertainment offerings interspersed with fine dining establishments, cafés and bars.
Gated and tropically landscaped, a brick paved motor court offers a welcoming ambience, and in the backyard, the covered loggia, with a summer kitchen and barbecue, topped with a cypress ceiling, overlooks the waterview auto-fill pool with an overflow spa. Featuring 55 +/- feet on a deepwater canal and only one property from the intracoastal Waterway, the recently redone full-length composite dock is serviced with boatlifts that can accommodate 16,000 pounds.
On the water, just blocks from Delray Beach’s vibrant downtown and award-winning beaches, this stunning six-bedroom European-inspired Old-World masterpiece, with 7,307 +/- total square feet, checks all the boxes for the sought-after South Florida lifestyle. Designed and built by Garcia Brenner Stromberg and Millennium Builders, high-end appointments include handsome walnut millwork, classic moldings, intricate designer ceiling details and gracious archways supported by decorative stone columns. Floors throughout are honed Saturnia marble, rich wide-plank wood and plush carpeting.
