This stunning 23,000-square foot home, completed in 2012, is the work of designer Ralph Choeff of Miami Beach, Florida. Its two stories contain nine bedrooms, eleven full bathrooms (and two half-bathrooms), as well as myriad other luxury features — not to mention the Florida coastline. The back lawn is terraced away from a magnificent infinity pool and outdoor living area that includes white loungers and umbrellas. Adjoining the pool is a complete entertaining area: outdoor “living room,” fully equipped kitchen, and alfresco dining table and chairs, covered by an extended “overhang” of sheer white. Approaching the unique pivoting red cedar-toned front door, you find your eye drawn upward to the second-floor corridor, its walls lined with contemporary art — and cleverly screened by vertical wood slats that extend the length of the windows.

Enter the home and you’ll find unique “staggered” framing on the full-length windows, then a spacious seating area with breathtaking views of the sea and sky. A central “courtyard” is lined with ivy and shaded in cool greens and blue stone that give you respite from Florida sun, while letting in fresh air. Move from there through to another living/seating area, all white and wood grain, along with an indoor dining table and chairs behind it. An open-plan bathroom, with rectangular tub behind glass panels, is clean-lined and gleaming. Notice the narrow rectangular fireplace in one white wall, as well as the unfussy low seating. And speaking of seating — don’t miss the movie room, with its wall-sized screen, recessed lighting, thick sand-colored carpet, and wall-to-wall sectionals. The home truly fits the description given of it: a “once in a lifetime” place of unparalleled luxury.
