Ideally situated on a quiet lake in Coral Gables, this two-acre gated estate is reminiscent of Old Florida, exemplified by its stately architecture and lush, tropical surroundings.  Located at 5355 Hammock Dr., the eight-bedroom, eight-and-two-half-bath residence is priced at $8,900,000. This extraordinary home is characterized by generously scaled interiors with floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors that not only allow natural light to fill the living spaces, but also offer expansive lake views.

 A covered walkway flanked by coral rock columns leads to an impressive, double-door foyer entrance. Inside, the open floor plan provides an ideal setting for grand-scale entertaining and is complemented by white oak flooring and cypress tray ceilings with recessed cove lighting. Ceilings in the living and family rooms stretch three stories in height and the dining room has a butler’s pantry complete with a sink and dishwasher.

The kitchen is equipped with light wood cabinetry, granite countertops, tray ceilings, two islands, a double sink and a myriad of top-of-the-line appliances by Thermador, Gaggenau, Sub-Zero and Miele. Bedrooms in the home are expansive and the master suite boasts his-and-hers closets, floor-to-ceiling windows and a set of French doors that leads to a private patio overlooking the lake and pool.

The master bath has been finished in marble and features a Kohler Jacuzzi and a large shower with a seating area. In addition to the litany of coveted features in the home, there is a three-television home entertainment center, wood-burning fireplace and built-in kegerator in the family room, and a library on the second-floor with built-in shelves, a three-story fireplace and views of the verdant grounds.

Outside, the heated pool and hot tub sit adjacent to a covered patio area that has a summer kitchen with a Keystone bar with granite countertops, an alfresco built-in grill, two gas burners and a mounted TV. There is also a guest apartment complete with its own separate entrance, a full kitchen, floor-to-ceiling windows and a full bath. Additional amenities in the home include hurricane impact windows and doors, an elevator, an outdoor shower and a gas fire pit.
