HOMES OF THE TREASURE COAST
off the kitchen.
Quartz countertops give the kitchen a bright
feel with its natural light and sweeping views
of the river. For large parties, appliances such
as a Miele double dishwasher, built-in espresso
and coffee machines, ice maker and Gagneau
double refrigerator and freezer make the chef’s
life easier. Solid wood cabinets have Edgar Berebi
nickel drawer pulls.
The covered entryway has stately steps up to
a very heavy, arched front door. Inside the foyer
an 18th-century wellhead from a village in Italy
serves as a container for fresh flowers. The original
staircase was replaced with cast stone and
wrought iron railings.
Ibiza marble floors are found throughout the
main house along with numerous Schonbek crystal
chandeliers and sconces.
Looking out from the living room, the vanishing
edge pool seems to blend with the river.
Light and airy with floor-to-ceiling windows,
the room is large enough for entertaining. A cast
stone propane fireplace and Steinway piano add
to its appeal as a gathering place.
The infinity pool also has a jacuzzi and sunken
fire pit for lounging. Coral from a quarry in the
Dominican Republic was used for the pool deck
and exterior of the main house.
The new master wing includes a master bedroom,
bathroom, his-and-her closets, a library, a
nine-seat movie room and a kids room. Roberto >> An 18th century well head from an Italian village graces the foyer.
