Upgraded Old Spanish in Pinecrest marked by understated elegance



This exquisitely restored, 1926 Old Spanish residence in the affluent community of Pinecrest is an architectural gem, complemented by fine finishes and luxury features. Priced at $1,395,000 and located at 13599 Old Cutler Rd., the estate comprises a three-bedroom, four-and-one-half-bath main home, as well as a one-bedroom, one-bath guesthouse. While contemporary amenities can be enjoyed throughout, the home’s Old World allure has been meticulously preserved, making it a neighborhood landmark and a charming hideaway for interested home buyers.

Inside the main two-story home, fine details can be found throughout spacious living areas, including refurbished original wood floors, 10-foot ceilings, archways and original, deep-textured plaster walls and moldings. The gourmet-style custom kitchen is a dream, outfitted with seeded-glass cabinet doors, soapstone countertops, stainless steel appliances and an island. Generously scaled rooms on both levels offer views of the grounds, and wide expanses of French doors lead to the exterior gardens. Upstairs, the master suite has a private, enclosed sun porch with a pecky cypress ceiling. Additional unique details can be enjoyed throughout, many of which are reproductions of originals, such as new, push-button light switches.

Outside, more than 25,000 square feet of lush landscaping surround the home and are encircled by a gated, six-foot coral rock wall. A loggia with a series of arches and architecturally distinctive columns leads to a keystone courtyard with an ornate fountain and koi pond at its center. Chicago brick pathways wind throughout the gardens, past the free-form pool and waterfall and to the base of the guesthouse. Occupying the second floor of the two-car garage, the guest house has one bedroom, one bath and a kitchen.
