Lakeside retreat-style home captures essence of Key West

It is possible to live in a true Old Key West-style home without ever leaving Coral Gables. Located on more than an acre of land at 5485 Hammock Dr. and priced at $3,950,000, this unique offering, designed by Miami native John Nichols, is being opened to prospective buyers by EWM Realtors. Enchanting and stately, it’s an amenity rich five-bedroom, five-bath home, inspired by iconic Bahamian architecture.

Inside, vaulted ceilings, Brazilian cherry wood floors and fireplaces accent the spacious floor plan. Fine details including exquisite millwork, wainscotings and door casings are found throughout the home and wide windows ensure that sweeping views of the adjacent lake can be enjoyed from nearly every room. French doors on both ends of the living room provide easy access to the front and back covered porches, which measure 30 and 70 feet, respectively. 

At the heart of the home is its kitchen — a gourmet’s dream — featuring stainless steel appliances, a cooking island, two refrigerators and three ovens. Another one of the home’s most desirable amenities is its expansive wine cellar.

The master suite and its adjoining office are ideally positioned on the ground floor, along with the family room with a fireplace and a game room. Four additional bedrooms are upstairs. 

 Outside, the residence’s relaxed, lush landscaping and massive oak trees heighten the private setting. A pool is just beyond the back porch and offers additional views of the lake. For the convenience of residents, the home has a three-car garage, impact windows and doors and a full generator. 

With all approvals and funds in place and the permit process under way, Hammock Lakes will soon be gated.
