Modern, tropical oasis in Pinecrest now on the market



In the heart of Pinecrest on a gated corner lot surrounded by lush tropical foliage on a quiet street, Bradford Brownes’ signature modern tropical design features embrace the tropical setting. Updated and restored in the past five years, it features vast expanses of glass, seamless while porcelain floors, high set clerestory windows, overhanging eaves and doors and windows placed for cross ventilation, and a second story loft overlooking the living areas and pool and porch below blur the boundary between indoors and outdoors.

Downstairs an integrated living area flows from the living room into the family room, with a two faced fireplace as the centerpiece, and the sleek kitchen opens to the dining area. All living areas are flanked on one side by a wall of sliding glass doors opening to the dramatic indoor/outdoor pool area.

A floating staircase leads to the second floor loft that runs the full length of the home. The loft area accommodates another versatile and open living area suitable for an office and an upstairs family room or den. The master bedroom occupies one end of the loft area and has a large balcony overlooking the pool. At the other end of the loft, two-bedroom suites have balconies and modular walls allowing alternative uses as open areas or rooms. The dramatic oval pool with round floating steps anchors the pool deck and a soaring screened in porch integrates the main home with the detached two-bedroom/one-bath guest house into one seamless indoor/outdoor living environment, two-car carport, enclosed storage, full home generator and sports court.
