8600 Twin Lake Drive
Boca Raton, Florida 33496

Blending refined Palm Beach elegance and fresh, trend-setting Hamptons style, this lakefront showplace has just undergone a two-year, $3.5 Million top-to-bottom renovation as the personal home of one of the premier custom builders in the Hamptons.  No detail has been overlooked and no expense spared in the stunning renewal of this seven-bedroom residence designed by award-winning architect Randall Stofft in a sprawling tropical paradise where long water views stretch to the southwest and capture romantic sunsets.

Approached by a meandering drive that encircles a tiered fountain, the Contemporary-inspired villa is a picturesque vision on lush estate grounds hidden away among mature trees and privacy hedges.  With drama and grace, the soaring entrance hall introduces the chic, understated interiors finished in a soft tone-on-tone palette.  High-end amenities and the latest advances in technology make every aspect of the residence function beautifully for private living or entertaining on any scale.

The living room opens to a loggia viewing the lake over the vanishing-edge pool, while the family room leads to another lakeside loggia fashioned as a true outdoor living room appointed with a fireplace and an open-air kitchen.  All of the bedrooms have en-suite baths and feature a luxe first-floor master retreat in addition to a separate guest house above the five-bay garage.  Offering the ultimate in resort-style living, this impressive as-new estate is one of the finest residences in Boca Raton's ultra-private Long Lake Estates.

 

Location

Twin Lake Drive, Boca Raton, Florida.  Featuring a guard-gated entry and its own patrol service, Long Lake Estates is a prestigious enclave of 126 large estates nestled on winding tree-lined streets among scenic lakes and lush park areas.  The central Boca Raton location is within easy driving distance of Atlantic Ocean beaches, Mizner Park's world-class shopping and dining, and Boca Raton?s private executive airport.

 Property

Newly renovated throughout, this Contemporary-inspired lakefront estate captures a long southwesterly water view from 1.43+/- acres of tropically landscaped grounds.  The stately main residence is accompanied by separate self-contained guest quarters in the carriage house, which has a drive-through bay to a discreet parking court by the five-bay garage.  A columned loggia centers on the lake view across the 65+/-foot-long vanishing-edge pool and spa lined by statuesque palms on lush lawns that sweep to the shore.  Another loggia serves as an outdoor living/dining room with an elegant fireplace, a summer kitchen, and full cabana bath.

 Residence

This impressive residence provides a grand total of 15,164+/- square feet with seven bedrooms and nine and a-half baths  including the guest house  plus customized closets, upstairs/downstairs laundry rooms, an elevator, and a full-house generator.  Select finishes feature marble and wide-plank wood floors, hand-forged custom balustrades, and impact-glass windows and exterior doors.  The baths have Waterworks and Toto fixtures, Thassos marble and dolomite finishes, and custom cabinetry of cerused white oak and walnut.  Comprehensive smart-house automation incorporates commercial-grade nine-zone HVAC systems with ultraviolet purification and Nest thermostats, Sonos and Savant audio visual systems with Stealth speakers, Lutron LED lighting, and a sophisticated security system.

First Floor:  Inside the gracious entrance loggia, the double-height marble foyer features a dramatic turret-style staircase and has a powder room adjacent.  Directly ahead, views of the pool and lake stretch through the elegant open living room, centered on a fireplace, with arch-topped French doors leading to the loggia.  Another fireplace flanked by custom built-ins highlights the library which also opens to the lakeside loggia.  Across the gallery, the dining room opens to a private garden and is served by a butler's pantry and climate-controlled wine room.  Done in crisp white tones, the epicurean's kitchen includes custom cabinetry, stone counters, a BlueStar gas range, Miele convection/steam ovens, two Miele warming drawers, two Miele dishwashers, and a Sub-Zero refrigerator.  French doors join the airy open family/breakfast room to the lakeside loggia with summer kitchen.  Next to this room are the custom-fitted theater room and office.  Across the foyer, another gallery enters the large private wing that encompasses the master suite.  Serene tree-framed lake views fill the comfortably elegant master bedroom through the step-down sitting area where French doors open to the lawns.  Two customized wardrobe rooms accompany the suite?s two spa-like white marble baths, one with a free-standing soaking tub and frameless glass shower.  A separate staff suite is also on this level. 

Second Floor:  Arranged off the upstairs gallery, four bedroom suites include two which open to a loggia taking in the lake view and sunset.  French doors also lead to the loggia from the open sitting room.

Guest House:  The separate guest house provides a living room, kitchenette, bedroom, and bath.
