838 Lake Shore Drive, Delray Beach, Florida: The desirable Lake Ida neighborhood is just a walk or bike ride to Delray Beach’s vibrant downtown and award-winning sand-carpeted beaches.
Lush with verdant and fruit-bearing foliage, this beautiful property presents as a tropical oasis, with brushed natural marble hardscaping, no maintenance landscape lighting, and irrigation drawn from Lake Ida. Perfect for boaters, the 100-feet of seawall on a deep-water canal off of Lake Ida is fitted with cleats, accommodating mooring for a 24-foot vessel. In the backyard, the Seminole-made cypress Chickee/Tiki Hut is the perfect spot to host family and friends, read a book, or just doze off by the stunning pool while listening to your favorite playlist on the high-end outdoor sound system.
This Old Florida estate underwent an immense, transformative renovation down to the studs, inspired by great form, function, and the clean line intent of its mid-century modern architectural heritage. With three oversized bedrooms and 3,567 of total square feet, no compromises were made. The result–a chic contemporary/transitional design aesthetic, ideally suited for today’s indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Uplifting natural and designed lighting are complimented by all new systems with every modern convenience. Carefully curated finishes are apparent at every turn: breathtaking twelve-foot open-vaulted cypress ceilings, pristine, oversized porcelain tile, and impact glass sliders throughout the entire rear facade that bring the outside in, offering breathtaking views of pool and waterfront. The dynamic open concept combines living, dining, sitting rooms with kitchen, while strategically placed accent walls define space. To make an impressive entrance, the architectural statement dividing wall serves as the centerpiece that showcases a copper-hooded waterfall that, with the flip of a switch, brings a gentle calm cascading down a wall of extraordinary natural quartzite. The opposite side showcases a contemporary, clean burning bio-ethanol fireplace, integrated with sitting room and kitchen. Not to be outdone, the chef’s kitchen is fitted with a massive, one-of-a-kind natural quartz island, gorgeous maple custom cabinetry, quartz counters, pearl-glass backsplash, pantry and professional-grade appliances. The spacious primary suite continues with vaulted rafter and beam construction, opening directly to both pool and canal. The suite features a large walk-in closet and a spa-inspired marble calcite-finished bathroom oasis. For privacy, the split-bedroom layout places two large guest bedrooms in the opposite wing, and another full bath of matching premium quality. Spacious two-car garage with newly finished “stone” epoxy floor, bonus storage room, and attic complete this dream floor plan.
