One of the most spectacular golf course settings in Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club is the domain of this British Colonial-style estate which overlooks a bordering green space to expansive sweeps of several fairways. A freshly inspired classic, the five-bedroom residence is introduced by an Italian marble motor court where a tranquil stacked stone fountain hints at the realm of comfortable elegance that lies within. Throughout the interiors, the atmosphere is spacious, light, and open with banks of windows and glass doors bringing in the lush natural splendor. Abundant luxury upgrades and fine furnishings enhance the well-scaled living environment that transitions easily from more formal to casual spaces and from inside to outdoors, where the resort-style pool patio capitalizes on the gorgeous scenery. Also opening to the patio and views, the serene first-floor master suite enjoys the privacy of its own large wing, complete with separate his-and-her baths. Tastefully styled and impeccably appointed, this is an impressive Royal Palm estate in an absolutely magnificent setting. Location Sabal Palm Circle, Boca Raton, Florida.
