Villa Fontana: a blend of old-world elegance and modern amenities3

 

ADVERTORIAL

Evoking old-world elegance with decidedly modern amenities, this unique Mediterranean-style estate has been meticulously and totally renovated. Built in 1935, it is prominently situated on a 20,815-square-foot lot with 115 feet on the water with direct ocean access, all just minutes from Bal Harbour and South Beach. The home is ideal as a family compound as well as a lavish entertaining venue. Encompassing 6,882 square feet, this eight-bedroom nine-and-a-half-bath estate features a superbly finished interior with impeccable craftsmanship and hurricane-resistant glass windows and doors.

The pool and patio areas, at the rear of the residence, enjoy constant bay breezes. Tahitian Ipe pavilions were built for dining and lounging around the pool. Decking was created in white tumbled marble for beauty and comfort with a new 30-foot Brazilian Ipe boat dock at the water’s edge. There is a stainless steel summer kitchen with a Viking gas grill for poolside entertaining.

The gourmet-style kitchen is superbly appointed with the finest professional appliances and custom cabinetry. The kitchen opens to a large, bright family room with a temperature-controlled wine room. Both kitchen and great room open to pool and patio areas through a series of French doors. There are walnut floors in the kitchen and the great room.

The formal living room has a beautifully restored rose-colored terrazzo floor, a hand-carved French limestone fireplace and a high, wood-beamed ceiling. Designed for entertaining, the formal dining room has views of the water from all windows.

The master suite, accessed via the grand foyer staircase, is a spacious private retreat. The 1,178-square-foot oasis features his-and-hers baths and dressing rooms. A sunny sitting room off of the master bedroom opens to a private waterfront terrace with unmatched sunrise and water views.
