“The current owners went through a full, spectacular restoration in 2012,” says listing agent Audrey Ross. “They absolutely fell in love with the house, and it was important to them for it to maintain its midcentury beauty.”Entry

The home is impressive from the moment you drive up. The iron gate opens to a brick drive flanked by tropical greenery, which leads to an angled entryway and glass front doors with ornate metal detail.
One step inside, you’ll notice that the boundary between the indoors and the outdoors is blurred.
“This house brings the outside right into it,” says Ross. “It’s pretty rare to find a house that complements its surroundings so perfectly.”
It’s true. Inside, all that stands in the way of the immaculate gardens is glass. Walls of windows in every room take in the outdoors, which is ideal during Florida’s sticky, mosquito-ridden summer months.
Smooth cypress wood adorns the living spaces and bedrooms. All of the rooms have been restored and updated with top-of-the-line appliances and fixtures, but the home still looks as if it jumped off the pages of a 1960s decor magazine.
The living space makes a dramatic statement with its 32-foot ceiling, a stone fireplace, and wall-to-wall windows. Upstairs is a loft-style library with a seating area.
The property has a total of six bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms between the main house and the guesthouse. The latter is reached by a short stone walkway past a koi pond and palm trees.
Naturally, a pool is a must, especially in South Florida. And indeed, another path opens up to the cool blue waters of a minimalist-style rectangular pool, lined with palms and headed by a cabana complete with fan. A picture of perfection.
