Thoughtfully conceived by The Benedict Group, masterfully crafted by Carnegie Hill Development, with furnishings and finishings by interior designer Marc Michaels, this newly completed estate far exceeds every expectation.
Ensconced in the prestigious Estate Section on one of the largest lots in Manalapan, directly fronting 150′ of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway at Lake Worth, this unparalleled estate even includes its own private tunnel to a pristine beach under A1A. Encased in floor-to-ceiling window walls, the L-shaped residence garners commanding panoramic water views from an elevated position.
Offering over 16,000 square feet of living space; the ultimate ocean-view executive office/library; a 10-car Auto Salon to exhibit a collection; extensive covered entertaining loggias and a summer kitchen that parallels the resort-size 30′ x 75′ lakeside pool; a verdant expanse to build a tennis court, additional space for a beach house, this newly completed estate makes room for every possibility, every lifestyle requirement.
One expects exceptional finishes, custom built-ins, innovative design features in a property of this magnitude. Even so, it surprises at every turn, from the pivot entry door flanked by fountains to a suspended tasting table in the glass enclosed 210-bottle wine room; a second dining island in the top-tier open-plan chef’s kitchen; a cabana-level massage room and oversized spa bath with steam shower for après gym; remote control of everything from the 22-camera security system, interior/exterior lighting and 13-unit AC to the heaters for the saline pool and spa; and, of course, the sublime summer kitchen by the lakeside pool overlooking the breathtaking waterway.
With a scope that assures the ultimate in personal space, a fluid split design that delivers uncompromising privacy, built-in safeguards from the ground up that guarantee self-contained viability come what may, this walled, gated property nestled between the ocean and the Intracoastal offers a secure retreat for an uncertain time. One where space is perhaps the greatest luxury of all, and limitless water views expand your vision of the ideal lifestyle estate.
