In the heart of Pinecrest on a gated corner lot surrounded by lush tropical foliage on a quiet street, tropical architect Robert Bradford Brownes’ signature modern tropical design embraces the tropical setting.
This 4,168-square-foot, five-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath residence, on a 37,076-square-foot lot at 6790 SW 122nd Dr., has been updated and restored in the past five years. The boundary between indoors and outdoors is blurred thanks to vast expanses of glass, seamless white porcelain tile floors, high set clerestory windows, overhanging eaves, doors and windows placed for cross ventilation, and a second-story loft overlooking the living areas and pool and porch below.
Downstairs, an integrated living area flows from the living room into the family room, with a two-face 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. The house has a two-car carport, enclosed storage, full home generator and sports court.
