Miromar Lakes, FL (April 6, 2016) – Luxury living has reached a new pinnacle at Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club with the opening of the Antigua, a waterfront grand estate home built by Divco Custom Homes in the exclusive Sorrento neighborhood.
The Antigua is the epitome of fine architectural and interior design and conveys the very best sophisticated waterfront lifestyle this private neighborhood has to offer.
The grand estate neighborhood of Sorrento takes full advantage of the sunny Florida lifestyle and the aquatic recreational opportunities unique to this dynamic community. Set behind an impressive iron gate along a tree-lined boulevard, exclusivity and intimacy are assured in Sorrento, a private luxury enclave with only 11 half-acre-plus grand estate waterfront sites with nearly mile-long views across Lake Como and the peaceful swaying grasses of a nature preserve. Each home in the gated Sorrento neighborhood has the option for a private boat dock and residents can water-ski, fish, or take a leisurely cruise right from their back door.
The Antigua is a two-story home with five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, a powder bath, a pool cabana bath, family room, study and game room. Square footage totals 9,117 with 5,403 square feet under air.
The home offers impressive curb appeal with a long paver driveway that leads to the home’s motor court with a four-car split garage. The portico grand covered entry opens into a gracious foyer that leads to the elegant formal living room where a sleek fireplace commands one wall, surrounded from floor to ceiling with contemporary stone mosaic. Flanking the fireplace are tall wood cabinets with mirror insets. As with virtually every other room in the home, the living room enjoys long water views of both the pool and the lake beyond.
Adjacent to the living room are a formal dining room and a wet bar, creating a perfect flow for entertaining. Visitors are immediately struck by the home’s modern interior design. The clean lines, fresh whites, natural shell stone and warm woods of the architecture create a backdrop for the furnishings which feature a calming palette of neutrals, accents of blues and plums. Fresh art and witty lighting add to the elegant yet comfortable styling.
Past the wet bar, the plan expands to an open kitchen of grand proportion with floor to ceiling custom cabinetry, anchored by an oversized island with a sink, storage drawers and bar top seating for four. A casual breakfast nook overlooks the lanai and provides additional seating. Included in the large open space with the kitchen is the family room where two walls of corner-less sliding glass doors pocket open and recess into walls for a seamless integration with the outdoor living space.
A 1,200-square-foot covered lanai wraps along the entire width of the home and includes several conversation seating arrangements, a full summer kitchen and a bar. The custom-designed swimming pool includes a raised sundeck with chaise lounges, a fire pit, multiple water features, and lush tropical landscaping in built-in planter boxes. A pool bath is conveniently located adjacent to the summer kitchen.
The master suite features an impressive entry vestibule with double doors that lead to the master bedroom and bathroom with two walk-in closets, an island tub, walk-in shower and two separate vanities.
Three bedrooms with en suite bathrooms are located on the second floor along with a game room with large flat-screen television and wet bar. Two spacious covered balconies with numerous access points provide outdoor living enjoyment for all the second floor rooms.
Situated on an approximately half acre lot, the Antigua looks in one direction across a nearly mile long view of Lake Como and in another to the tall grasses of a nature preserve. It is available for purchase on leaseback for $4,295,000, including furnishings.
Sorrento is located on The Peninsula at Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club, just a short walk from the Marina. Residents can stroll through the Marina’s parterre garden, enjoy the signature sculpture “Dare to Be,” play bocce, work out on the fitness stations, dock at the boat slips, and gather with friends by the fire pit or under one of the entertainment shade pavilions.
