Boca Raton house description

'Everyone knows that the pictures usually look better than the house itself. But in your case, your house is so much more beautiful than the pictures - and the pictures are really beautiful!' - Recent comment from one of our wonderful guests.

Stunning Designer's Custom home in the heart of East Boca Raton. This meticulous and enchanting three bedroom, two and a half bath Mediterranean-style home provides the perfect getaway for couples or families looking to experience a comfortable stay in an absolutely beautiful custom-built home. Be it for the week or the season, you will find everything you want and need here - and more.

Exquisite Italian Travertine marble adorns the floors in the kitchen, entryways, and bathrooms, and meets up with beautiful hand scraped hardwood floors in the living room, dining room and family room with fireplace.

The Tuscan-inspired kitchen is a culinary delight - from the six-burner Viking Professional Series stove and oven to handcrafted custom wood cabinets to the imported Italian granite countertops. Enjoy a casual meal or a late-night snack at the kitchen island and watch the news at breakfast on your flat screen television. A brand new Keurig Coffee Machine will welcome you each morning, along with a full assortment of K-Cup Coffees and Tazo Teas.

The Master Bedroom with king-sized bed and exclusive Prana Sleep mattress opens up onto a bougainvillea veranda. Connecting through the cedar-lined, walk-in closet area is the spa-like Master Bathroom, stunningly constructed with imported marble and dark-wood accents. The large dual-headed shower and oversized corner jacuzzi tub provide the ultimate in luxurious bathing comfort.

Guest bedroom #1 contains a queen-sized bed, closet and dressers.

Guest bedroom #2 has two twin beds, dresser, and a large comfortable sitting area for reading or relaxing. And why go out to the movies when you can watch your favorite stars on an awesome ten-foot projection screen with full surround sound.

The guest bathrooms are beautifully adorned with marble and and a unique copper ceiling. Bathe indoors or open the glass door to a private outdoor shower (and great access to the pool!).

Don't want to break your work-out routine? Whether you're a fitness guru or just a casual treadmiller, there is no need to find an local gym; exercise to your heart's content right here at home! Enjoy a private room (with overhead fan and flat screen TV) boasting a Precor Elliptical Machine, Lifestyler Treadmill, and full, multi-station Parabody gym with over 1000 lbs. of weights.

Sunbathe, swim, and relax your cares away in the serene and lushly landscaped backyard patio area and large outdoor pool. Complete with lounge chairs, brand new patio set for outside dining, and large umbrellas - our most recents guests called it 'a resort.' It is a most perfect place to enjoy a frozen margarita or daiquiri, and we have a full range of beautiful plasticware to complement the outside patio area.

As one of our goals is to provide our guests with the very best, every season we restock our closets and cabinets with brand-new linens, pillows, silverware, and dinnerware. And because we simultaneously like to make our home (and lives!) as 'green' as possible, we always donate the previous season's amenities to our local Habitat for Humanity.

Located in an incredibly convenient location east of I-95, this home is a just a couple of miles to the pristine beaches and one mile from elegant downtown. Use one of our bicycles to bike to the beach, Mizner Park, and shopping, and the Town Center Mall and hundreds of restaurants are a short car ride away. Whole Foods, Starbucks, Barnes and Noble, and a plaza full of fabulous restaurants are literally right around the corner.

Enjoy an evening of outdoor music at Mizner Park amphitheater or a cultural afternoon at a local museum. And don't forget the nightlife - from upscale clubs to fine dining to outdoor concerts at the Mizner amphitheater, Boca has it all. (And don't forget Boca's close proximity to downtown Ft Lauderdale, the Hard Rock Casino, and Palm Beach!)

For the kids, there's Boomer's, Sugar Sand Park, Discovery Cove Water Park; the list goes on and on.

For the golfer in the family world famous courses are just a few minutes away.

The Boca Raton area also boasts many upscale consignment shops and boutiques, perfect for browsers and buyers alike.

Like to do some boating or fishing? The Boca Raton inlet is just 2 miles away and once on the water only minutes out to the Gulf Stream and some of the finest fishing in the world.

You will love your stay and never want to leave here at Vacanza Bella.

                      About the owner: Custom Home Builder and Interior Designer from Westport, CT., now living and building in beautiful Boca Raton. Located in an incredibly convenient location east of I-95, this home is a just a couple of miles to the pristine beaches and one mile from elegant downtown. Use one of our bicycles to bike to the beach, Mizner Park, and shopping, and the Town Center Mall and hundreds of restaurants are a short car ride away. Whole Foods, Starbucks, Barnes and Noble, and a plaza full of fabulous restaurants are literally right around the corner. Enjoy an evening of outdoor music at Mizner Park amphitheater or a cultural afternoon at a local museum. And don't forget the nightlife - from upscale clubs to fine dining to outdoor concerts at the Mizner amphitheater, Boca has it all. (And don't forget Boca's close proximity to downtown Ft Lauderdale, the Hard Rock Casino, and Palm Beach!) For the kids, there's Boomer's, Sugar Sand Park, Discovery Cove Water Park; the list goes on and on. For the golfer in the family world famous courses are just a few minutes away. The Boca Raton area also boasts many upscale consignment shops and boutiques, perfect for browsers and buyers alike. Like to do some boating or fishing? The Boca Raton inlet is just 2 miles away and once on the water only minutes out to the Gulf Stream and some of the finest fishing in the world.

                      Why the Owner Chose Boca Raton:
                      I originally chose Boca as a place to live and build because it's a meticulously-maintained and beautiful city. Now it's my home. Boca is a cosmopolitan city with a home-town feel. I love my neighborhood and area because of its close proximity to nearly everything Boca has to offer - the beach, downtown, boat ramps, shopping. I also enjoy seeing all sorts of open-air concerts, and Mizner Park amphitheater offers this year round, many for free! To me, East Boca just has a special feel - an ocean breeze, a history, a luxurious, vibrant downtown....it really is one of the most beautiful places to live in the country.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Because I've been a builder and designer of multi-million dollar homes for four decades, I saw great potential in this jewel of a house when I first laid eyes on it. To me, it was an untouched canvas on which I could I could create a home and grounds to emulate the places I've been: a piece of paradise from Tahiti, a touch of Tuscany from the Italian countryside, and the lush, tranquil gardens from Hawaii. I originally built this home for myself, not as a rental; however, now that I am semi-retired and able to travel more, I felt it was a great time to share this beautiful home with others. I still care for this home as if I still reside here, and I actually do stay here every chance I get. Because I've spent so much time and care building, designing, and living in this house, you'll find so many beautiful touches in an impeccable setting, one that is meticulously clean and constantly updated.
