In a rare setting nestled on the golf course of The Little Club, this timeless Modern Mediterranean estate by award-winning architect Randall Stofft takes advantage of its enchanting emerald backdrop looking all the way up the fairways of this intimate private-membership club established half a century ago on grounds which were formerly Gulf Stream's legendary polo fields. Behind a canopy of leafy trees, the lovely front gardens and columned entry make a beautiful presentation of this five-bedroom residence designed for comfortably elegant indoor/outdoor living in an effortless single-level floor-plan.
Lofty ceilings enhance the perfect proportions throughout the interiors, set off by design elements which interpret tradition with a sense of refinement. Wonderfully light and airy, the more formal and casual living areas are arranged on either side of the chef's kitchen, all bringing in lush views through window walls that open outdoors to the relaxing resort-inspired oasis where lounge areas surround the sun-splashed pool bordered by low hedges along the golf course. Next to the handsome office/library, the luxurious master suite opens to the pool terrace and scenic view from its large private wing which pairs two separate baths with walk-in closets. An impeccably architected home in a picturesque golf course setting, this rare estate personifies the relaxed grace of Gulf Stream.
