A cul-de-sac one-acre lot nestled within the Golf Course and dramatic curb appeal create a lasting first impression of this tropical paradise, hinting at the luxury and livability you’ll find inside. Light and airy, six sets of tinted 8-foot sliding glass doors pocket open for a great outdoor feeling. Invite dozens of friends—there’s plenty of room! The generous lanai makes entertaining a breeze. Prefer a bit of privacy in the midst of family activities? You’ll appreciate the thoughtfully designed zones and the attention to detail that allow peace and quiet on demand. If you’re fascinated by the abundant wildlife that also calls this community home, your private observation post is a tranquil garden with a fountain overlooking a small pond and Cheval’s 13th Tee. Air handlers work quietly in the attic over the garage. Storage space? There are generous closets, an oversized garage, and attic storage. The Butler’s pantry beside the kitchen gives you enviable laundry and storage space, designed to be hard-working and match the designer kitchen. It’s the bright, friendly kitchen of your dreams.

Pool Designed as an At-Home Resort


Pool Photo


Imagine visiting the Greek Islands with the cobalt blue tile design and cantilever white cool deck. Twin fan sprays flank the raised spa with glass block and curved marble spillway. (Say “Hello, Joe!” to the tile dolphin mosaic in the shallow end. ) You’ll love the 7 foot deep screened marcite pool for its flowing shape. Wait until you discover that it’s maintenance-free! The Caretaker pop-up self-cleaning system efficiently works with the pool's 5-ton electric heat pump to distribute heated water evenly from the bottom-up. There's also a large capacity gas pool and spa heater supplied by a 250 gallon underground LPG tank. The Aqualink computer indoor and spa-side controls operate the filter pump, gas and electric heating, and lighting. You’ll enjoy the great poolside hot and cold water shower. There’s underground plumbing for the water supply and a built-in overflow drain. A heavy duty (2 HP) pool pump, extra-capacity DE filter, and underground plumbing for backwashing are included. Just add chemicals—no need for a pool service!

Flexible Floor Plan Fits Your Needs with Style

Homebuyers today demand flexibility and functionality in design and construction -- you’ll find it all, and more, in this custom house! So how will you use the space? The master suite is a retreat of its own, with spacious storage, mirrored closets to “check your look,” and a luxurious bath opening to the elegant spa. Also, there’s a private three-room self-contained suite available for an in-law, nanny, or perhaps as entertainment and exercise rooms. Four bedrooms upstairs, with two Hollywood baths, make a lovely retreat for children. How many guest rooms or suites do you need? A study and a den? Maybe it’s a home office with lots of phone lines and electric circuits to accommodate your high-tech equipment. How about four walk-in closets and seven bi-fold door closets? One is fitted for a computer system. There are six full baths with two garden tubs, 5 tile showers, 9 Kohler Portrait get the idea. That’s the beauty of flexible design.


There's More!

  • Insulation for noise suppression (up and downstairs plus guest and private suites, baths, and laundry)

Gorgeous Gardens

Ease of maintenance has been designed into the garden, too! “If you have plants, they should have flowers” is the basic philosophy here. That thought follows with a small citrus orchard (oranges, lemons and grapefruit) and the herb gardens (basil, tarragon, rosemary and sage, to name a few) that flourish. The tropical feel extends inside when the flowers on your table come from the butterfly garden!
