944 Banyan Drive, Delray Beach, Florida. Tropic Isle is desirable yachting community fronting the Intracoastal Waterway, a yacht harbor, and deep-draft canals. Minutes from the ocean beach at Atlantic Dunes Park, Tropic Isle is a short drive from famous Atlantic Avenue in charming downtown Delray Beach, named one of the “Most Fun” Small Towns in America by Rand McNally and USA Today, known for its vibrant shopping, dining, and entertainment.
For the quintessence of indoor/outdoor living, especially for boaters, water-sports enthusiasts and those who love water views, this wonderful estate presides over 90 feet on a deep-water canal with a new low-maintenance composite 60± foot dock that can accommodate an 80± foot vessel. Beautifully landscaped, with strategic hedges placed for privacy, all main rooms offer views of the patio and heated pool with a spill-over spa.
Here is a rare opportunity to enjoy this stunning gem “as is” or expand it to create a dream estate on the waterfront. This glamorous European-inspired four-bedroom residence, with 4,196± total square feet, was originally built with extra pilings and beams that can support enlarging the second floor and adding a fifth bedroom or home theatre. Delivering a sense of drama, the foyer introduces the elegant living room and dining room, which feature two-story ceilings. Highlights in the living room include luxe marble flooring with an impressive wood-burning fireplace, a full wet bar, and an entire wall of pool-patio-view windows. Just adjacent, with an open floor-plan concept, are the pool-view family room, breakfast area, and completely updated cook-island kitchen, which is fitted with professional-grade appliances, white custom cabinetry, marble counters and backsplash, German-made sinks and faucets, and instant hot water. With a split-bedroom plan for privacy, the primary suite, topped by a 12-foot-high tray ceiling and featuring a French door to the pool patio, presides over one side of the first-floor layout. The suite comprises two custom-fitted closets and a spa-inspired granite-finished bathroom with double vanities, soaking tub and walk-in shower. Nearby, the pool-view office expands the primary suite’s luxe livability. A dramatic floating stairway leads to the second floor, where, of the three guest bedrooms, the VIP guest bedroom suite, with a double-door entry, accesses a water-view balcony. Meticulously maintained, this elegant property features high ceilings, plantation shutters and marble and wood flooring throughout. Completing the floor plan are a powder room, laundry, and attached two-car garage. Amenities include propane gas, generator, and impact windows and doors.
