Modern & Asian Home Trend | Moving Away From British West Indies

July 29th, 2016

We saw 3 brand new homes, $9-12 million homes, and WOW! one was the most beautiful merger of architecture and interior design I had ever seen. What I can report is that the movement is continuing towards contemporary/modern/Asian and beginning to move a step or 3 away from British West Indies. We loved what we saw. Less pure white or white on white and more contrast with wood flooring in brown, combined with white and grey. A touch more contrast and warmth. See-thru staircases, glass and twisted wire. Ceiling features with contemporary hanging inserts, continued growth of man-made materials replacing marbles and combos of both.

12981 Brynwood | Old Marsh Golf Club

January 26th, 2016

Experience absolutely stunning sunset views from this award-winning, 6,779-square-foot, magnificent British colonial-style estate home at 12981 Brynwood in Old Marsh Golf Club which includes a 1,200-square-foot attached guest house and a 2,649-square-foot enclosed furnished patio, for a grand total of 10,514 usable square feet.

The one-of-a-kind, lavishly decorated Villa Lavelle sits on over an acre parcel and overlooks an Audubon-certified, 40-acre pristine nature preserve that can never be developed.

Featured in Architectural Digest in 2001, this luxury resort-like property is named after award-winning Lavelle Construction, who in 2009 completely renovated and updated this exquisite house with the finest of materials and finishes. Lavelle is the same builder selected to build Michael Jordan’s 27,000-square-foot estate at the Bear’s Club in Jupiter, FL. Under the expert eye of Marc Michaels, named one of the top 100 design firms in the world by Interior Design Magazine, and Patricia Brown Associates, the owners created an international masterpiece.

Only the very best, painstakingly chosen building materials went into the creation of this refined masterpiece, and the interior design is comprised of valuable, imported, museum-quality pieces which are works of art in and of themselves.

The entire home is surrounded by fantastic, meticulous landscaping done by the multiple-award-winning and highly selective Blakely & Associates, the premier landscape architects in South Florida.

12981 Brynwood | Old Marsh Golf Club

13001 Brynwood | Old Marsh Golf Club

October 16th, 2013

This 2002, award-winning custom estate in Old Marsh Golf Club is located in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida and sits on a 50-acre lake/marsh, giving this 1.3-acre plot effectively 51.3 acres in perpetuity. The Belle Maison transitionally designed home is a collaboration of the owners, Miklos Architects, Maxwell Builders, Kreiland Landscape Architect and The Maxwell Interior Design firm. The owners, who had built 14 houses prior to this, worked with all four firms, inspiring and challenging them to create an architecturally significant structure that conformed to the land and its extraordinary views and created a magnificence, yet casualness that separates it from the expected and puts it in a class by itself. The new owners will have the benefit of the mistakes the owners made in the 14 prior houses that the present owners learned from.

It is a house that opens up slowly and reveals itself in layers. Even from a distance, the house has a majestic presence. The Fond du Lac weathered edge stone and Old Chicago brick that adorn the exterior, the variegated paver driveway, stately Sylvester palms, old live oaks, magnolia trees, and curved yet understated drive, leads to two 2-car garages that the architect has cleverly hidden from view.

Miklos Architects chose an octagon as the architectural theme to link the wings of the house and for most of the ceiling structures, which they varied in a most appealing way.
On a full moon, one can see the full beauty of the house and the marsh at night and its 50-acre lake, its entire natural habitat, and their symphony of sounds. Common species include sand cranes, ibis, blue heron, whooping cranes, sandpipers, osprey, spoonbills, bald eagles, ducks, geese, songbirds, swallows, coots, hawks, and black ducks. In terms of fish, marshes are home to many species, including northern pike and carp. Some of the most common plants are cattails, water lilies, arrowheads, and rushes.

Upon leaving the foyer, one enters the living room with its intricately-carved mantel, 2-story windows. The owners and architect settled on a square octagonal shape for the living room, extensive moldings and built-ins, a real, wood-burning fireplace, gas lit, impact windows and doors throughout the house, a full-house generator, and a 2000-gallon, in-ground natural-gas tank. The flooring material throughout most of the living areas is an imported Italian marble, 18-inch squares set on a diagonal, with each seating area adorned by an oriental, Persian carpet. There is extensive use of high-hats and a music system controlled by a computer whose speakers can be individually controlled from each room. The lighting is also computer controlled to allow for 1 button hallway lighting upon entry.

The dining room seats 10 comfortably, with love seats at the head of the Baker table. Both rooms overlook the pool and marsh and offer unlimited visas.

The library has a fine Belgian tapestry behind the desk and a coffered ceiling. The owners spared no expense in the extensively-paneled library. Walls, ceiling, shelving, and built-ins were thoughtfully designed together with their fine furnishings, which make this a wonderful working and relaxing environment. The new owners might want to put a large flat-screen TV directly across from the desk. The floor-to-ceiling glass doors open onto an inviting view of the patio and marsh.

The billiards/bar room was the joint effort of the husband and architect, an area where men could gather after dinner, play a little pool, and partake in some fine wines and single-malt rare scotch whiskys. The interior designer picked up the green from the billiards table and carried it out on the walls, windows, and ceiling, together with fine carved woods and built-ins. She added a plaid from Scotland, something golfers would appreciate from their trips overseas.

The family room shares an open space with the kitchen and breakfast nook. The coffered ceiling of the family room follows another octagonal theme, but this one is rectangular rather than square. The kitchen is cream colored with bar stools and countertop seating for a quick breakfast.

In the breakfast nook, the octagonal ceiling concept us used in yet another fashion. The bay windows offer great views of the pool, patio, and lake/marsh. Every window in the house has electronically controlled shades to give privacy and to control light where needed.

The master anteroom feeds into the 3 main areas of the master bedroom suite. Rather than just enter the master bedroom directly, this provides an anteroom and creates a space that denotes its special character.

The spacious master bedroom has floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that spill out onto the patio/pool deck, together with another specialized ceiling treatment.
For the lady of the house, the master bath is elegantly designed with makeup, tub, and shower areas, wisely softened by the chandelier, balloon draperies, and 3-leaf clover upholstered ottoman.

The master bedroom closet not only has enough hanging space for a small boutique, but also leads into a safe room (not shown) for hurricane protection, or a perfect place for the grandkids in a game of hide and seek.

The fitness room is just off the master suite, with all the latest equipment and loaded with autographed sports memorabilia of the owner.

The “His” bathroom with French doors leading out to the pool allows direct access after a workout for a refreshing swim followed by a hot shower in the tumbled-stone bath.

To describe the landscaping of this home would not do it justice. Suffice it to say, it is landscaped to the 9s and done in classic elegant taste.

Outside the family room/billiards room areas is the loggia, fully screened, with outdoor BBQ, seating areas, and TVs.

The 2nd powder room severs as both a cabana bath and powder room for the breakfast/family and billiards rooms. The interior designer’s artistic taste appears delightful here as it combines the elements of design and function perfectly.

13241 Oakmeade | 40 acres…Brand New…5 Bedrooms…Guest House…Incredible Sunsets

December 10th, 2012

 

The headline above pretty much sums up the incredible value this property at 13241 Oakmeade holds for the discerning buyer.

As you enter the paver circular drive, you immediately see the 1100-sq.ft. guest house to the left. If we start our tour there, we immediately see the quality of the entire house. 24” Jerusalem marble floors throughout set on the diagonal, center executive office with mahogany built-in shelving will allow either or both working members a private, spacious office like no other. It could be furnished in the alternative to be a playroom or game-billiard room. On either side are 2 generous bedrooms and marble baths.

Leaving the guest house we enter the 3200-sq.ft. main house. The entry opens not only onto the living room, but at a minimum onto 40 acres of open wetlands and marsh. While not deeded to 13241 Oakmeade, its full beauty and splendor certainly are. One has only to stop and walk to the windows to take in its magnificence.

While the Oakmeade house was built in 1995, we defy anyone to find any inch that does not look to be 2012/13 construction. 2 incredible renovations allow us to call this “brand new,” with impact glass. All of the living areas, including all baths, have marble floors, and the bedrooms and study have fine hardwood flooring.

The interior architecture of this house has a great floorplan, with the kitchen and family room that opens up to both the rest of the house and the immense acreage of wet lands as far as the eye can see.

There are crown moldings in every room, granite countertops in the kitchen, and onyx countertops in the master bathroom. Every bedroom has large walk-in closets. Ceilings throughout are voluminous in height and vary in their detail. The living room has a stone fireplace. There are Venetian plastered walls in the dining room, along with coffered ceilings and stone columns.

The kitchen has all stainless-steel appliances, a huge marble archway into the family room, and a cut out pass-thru to the living room. The breakfast room has butted glass windows to allow the best views of the marsh. Onyx can also be found in the powder room, which serves as a cabana bath as well.

Outdoors there is a covered loggia, heated freeform pool/spa, with a paver deck. The covered loggia has its own outdoor cooking and seating areas. There is a full-house generator, automatic blinds, 3-car garage, sleek chandeliers, spacious circular drive, and extensive landscaping.

Old Marsh does not require mandatory membership as many golf communities do. It is a high-end gated community, uncrowded, private & tranquil.
