5 Rabbits Run | Marlwood Estates at PGA National

April 7th, 2011

Approaching the 1-acre 5 Rabbits Run house with its sloping Mexican tile roof, antique Chicago brick circular drive and exotic dense landscaping, you are filled with a sense of anticipation as to what lies inside. Opening the massive front doors reveals a home steeped in tradition, an ode to two great architects, Frank Lloyd Wright and Ludwig Meis van der Rode.

Wright, whose prairie-style architecture culminated in his supreme home in Pennsylvania, ‘Falling Water’, can be seen as one walks through the structure, his trademark stone and wainscot paneling, his geometric rectangular windows and inviting bathrooms.

Meis, whose glass-clad architectural style complements Wright, brings the outdoor landscaping and foliage intimately inside and the two styles become greater than the sum of their parts.
Unexpected in south Florida, where Addison Mizner’s Mediterranean architectural influence can be seen at every street corner, this tropically-styled retreat is an oasis for the professional couple who had this architectural masterpiece built.

The very large screened pool/entertainment area was tropically landscaped by the leading landscape architect, Keith Weiland, and can be accessed from the 3 largest rooms in the house, the open great room, which houses the spacious kitchen and recreation area with its stone fireplace, the living room with its award-winning stone work done by master craftsman Jacko Carballo, and the eclectic master bedroom with its Asian influence and a 3rd fireplace and sitting area. The outdoor stone-clad cooking area is perfect for a family style BBQ or entertaining friends.

The master bath and shower, together with the steam room, provide the ultimate in luxury. The shower itself, with 3 adjustable heads and 9 control knobs, is an engineer’s delight. Adjacent to the master is both an office and a massive exercise room with floor-to-ceiling windows and more beautiful landscaping.

The 6 bedrooms and 7 baths sprawl over 1 acre, with room for both children, grandchildren and dogs to play. A 4-car garage and carpenter’s work area gives the handyman of the house space to tinker and his wife an art studio to fashion her best work.

The two wings of the house, designed in the swept-back shape of a bird in flight, meet at the center of the nearly olympic-sized pool, with the center of the house the living area, the left wing the adult area, and the right wing the children’s.

All in all, this is a dream home!

Palm Beach Gardens Golf Courses

March 16th, 2011

Palm Beach Gardens, located on the southeast coast of Florida between West Palm Beach and Jupiter, offers some of the most diverse and challenging golfing opportunities in the country and the weather this time of year is beckoning golfers to hit the fairways. High temperatures this week are in the 70s.

The premier golfing community in the Gardens is the PGA National Resort & Spa which is home to 5 courses. Four are located within the complex and the fifth is located west of town and is called the Estate Course. Last week, one of the PGA’s courses, ‘The Champion’ was the host course for the Honda Classic. Across PGA Boulevard from PGA National is the Country Club at Mirasol with 2 courses, ‘The Sunrise’ and ‘The Sunset’. Mirasol was home to the Honda Classic for 3 years and these are the newest courses in the area.

Just east of PGA National is the original home of the PGA of America, a club now called BallenIsles Country Club with 3 courses. Built in the 1970s, BallenIsles has a casual elegance not found in the more modern clubs.

Across PGA Boulevard from BallenIsles is the small and very exclusive enclave of Old Palm. This club was to be Raymond Floyd’s legacy course. Old Palm is in a very small group of clubs where caddies are used, no tee times are required, and a busy day might see fewer than 100 golfers on the course. You may never see another foursome during your round when playing at Old Palm.

One of the more established, but less well known clubs is Old Marsh. Greg Norman played out of this club when he lived in Lost Tree Village and before building his ‘Medalist’ Club in Hobe Sound.

Toll Brothers built Frenchman’s Reserve around an Arnold Palmer Signature course and this community is adjacent to Frenchman’s Creek Beach & Country Club. Frenchman’s Creek offers 2 courses and a level of concierge service usually found only in 5-Star resorts.

In addition to golf in the Gardens, you can find even more golf courses in Jupiter, just 10 minutes to the north.
