6,021 sf (A/C) – Gold PRISM Award
This Mediterranean-style, 7,051 sq. ft. home sits on an acre of land in an exclusive aero club community in Wellington, Florida. The client wanted to capture an elegant “old world” mood in this one-story residence. The entry to this home has dramatic, 16’ stone columns delineating grand archways, as well as intricate niches for artwork and multi-level-coffered ceilings.
There were several design challenges. The client has small children and hosts parties for large groups of people. They wanted one environment for their family and another for entertaining. The client also wanted to ensure the home featured the unique panoramic views of the runway and the lushly landscaped outdoor area. An 8’ X 12’ picture window lines-up from the front entry foyer through to the living room to showcase these views. Again to show the outdoors, a major design challenge was enclosing three different structures with different elevations. These were the oversized pool and spa area including a 500 sq. ft. pavilion and the master suite to the home. A custom designed aluminum screen enclosure ties these areas together. The home’s exterior features a combination of pre-cast stone and stucco molding accentuating Anderson windows with stone castings. On the interior, these windows have wood casings. The home has four bedrooms, kitchen, dining room, library, playroom, guest bedroom suite, arts and crafts room, four full baths, a sunken wet bar, three half baths and a three car garage. Future design plans include building an airplane hangar.
