Translated from the French words for “beautiful view,” the “Bellevue” surpasses its name in both architectural design and new age décor.
Warm cobblestone and brick accents bring a welcoming quality to the double courtyard-entry garage design. Unexpected surprises include the herringbone pattern inserts alongside the grand brick pavers adding another dimension to “beautiful view” and beckon you inside through richly burnished double entry doors with speakeasy accents.
Subtle eye-catching touches enchant throughout, starting with the massive Whiteland stacked cultured stone entertainment wall flanking the great room and the magnificent coffered ceilings above. Accented with recessed stained crown molding, the rich design is meant to complement the rustic multi-toned 5′ plank hardwood floors.
Natural light filters through the great room’s massive 16′ wide stacking tall sliding doors adding to the grand ambiance within while providing an invitation to take in the beautiful views through the home’s outdoor living enclave beyond.
A hard day at the office can be eased by a relaxing early evening spent on the cobblestone lanai either gazing up at the stars or into a roaring fire. And then there’s the possibility of dinner alfresco served poolside from the fully equipped summer kitchen, and then perhaps settling into the comfortable patio furniture and tuning in the latest movie on the outdoor flat screen TV.
Intimate dinner parties to extended family gatherings can find easy accommodation in the formal dining area, which can effortlessly manage sit-down dinners from two to twelve or any dining occasion in between. Light, airy and spacious, this elegant space adjoins the great room and is just steps from the kitchen, making serving a dream.
The kitchen offers the ideal environment for busy parents, the serious connoisseur and weekend gourmet alike. Rich sable-finished cabinetry surrounds an eight foot center granite-topped island and vegetable sink area in a contrasting espresso black finish. You can enjoy a light meal and a beautiful view of the lanai area from the breakfast nook.
Traditional accents coupled with contemporary design elements continue through the owners’ suite and custom-designed closets.
The luxurious owners’ bath allocates ample space for today’s storage needs and keeps counters uncluttered. From the oversized vanity to the Roman style master shower with its built-in recessed shelving, this efficient design provides contemporary comfort and convenience. To ensure time and space for relaxation, there’s an inviting hydro-spa soak tub and adjacent master fitness area.
The rest of the family or the occasional guest is well quartered in two nicely appointed bedrooms; both with direct access to a super-sized full bath, conveniently accessible from the pool deck.
Around the corner from the guest bedrooms, a winding sunlit staircase leads to one final treasure upstairs – a large multi-functional loft space that can serve as a game room, additional bedroom, studio or getaway space. The pièce de résistance occurs when you survey the view from the second floor balcony. Be prepared to pause and enjoy… for you’ll want to simply look out and take in the superb backdrop that only the serene landscape of a meticulously manicured fairway can offer.
