ADVERTORIAL

This exquisite estate, encompassing 51,401 square feet of lush grounds, is designed to capture the essence of elegant living. Combining the timeless appeal of meticulous architectural styling and superb craftsmanship, the residence, located at 5545 Arbor Lane in Snapper Creek Lakes – one of Coral Gables' most prestigious gated communities – is offered at $5,500,000. The 10,176 square foot home represents a successful collaborative effort between noted architect Mark Reardon, renowned contractor Hidalgo Construction and interior designer Judi Male of Male Cahlin Design.

With a clear accent on luxury, comfort and privacy, the generously scaled six-bedroom, six full and two-half bath residence displays a wealth of custom features. Richly hued wood is used throughout the home in a variety of stunning applications. While quarter sawn oak floors are seen in the great room and formal dining room, a striking wood beam treatment accents the dramatic beauty of the great room’s high cathedral ceiling. Extensive built-in cabinetry and finely milled doors serve to continue the Craftsman-style aesthetic.

A blend of formal and informal living spaces – including an office, studio, playroom, mudroom and media room – make the residence the perfect venue for both grand entertaining and casual relaxation. Indicative of the home’s state-of-the-art systems, the kitchen is equipped with features ranging from two Miele dishwashers to a pot filler positioned over the five-burner gas stovetop. Two Sub-Zero wine coolers in the dining room can accommodate 280 bottles.

Adding to the home’s extensive conveniences and amenities are an elevator, Lutron Lighting and Crestron Home Automation systems, interior and exterior security systems and a four-car garage.

Snapper Creek Lakes is secured by a 24-hour manned guardhouse, has marina facilities for community residents and is within the highly coveted Pinecrest school district.
