Mediterranean Finery in Admiral’s Cove
Grand in design and perfect in position, this spectacular home in Jupiter exemplifies the splendor and grace of Mediterranean architecture, creating a truly elegant venue for the finest indoor-outdoor living on a prime waterfront point lot.
The impressive interiors — measuring some 11,974 square feet — are as stylish as they are spacious. Striking details are on display throughout: remarkably ornate fireplaces, dramatically soaring ceilings, intricate moldings, classical columns, sculpted plasterwork, stately paneled walls, floors of walnut and stone, and romantic balconies overlooking the water. Throughout, expanses of windows admit alluring views and lovely light. Impeccable attention to detail is evident throughout, from the glass and iron entry doors and the decorative stairway railing to the eye-catching parquetry of the hardwood floors. Crestron controls and an elevator are among the plentiful modern amenities.
Chief among the living and entertaining spaces is a formal living room with a magnificent fireplace, a wall of windows facing the water, walnut floors, coquina and wood paneling, and a coffered pecky cypress ceiling.
Stone columns create a regal segue to the “club room,” a handsome gathering space with an air of warm, relaxed Old World refinement. It features a custom media cabinet, doors to the waterfront terrace, and a thoughtfully appointed granite-topped bar with an ice maker and a refrigerator. A wine closet adjoining the formal dining room creates an ideal configuration for easy elegant entertaining.
Any chef or gourmand will appreciate the kitchen, impressively outfitted with colorful decorative tile, granite countertops, and top-tier appliances — including two refrigerator-freezers, a wine chiller, and refrigerating and warming drawers.
The adjacent family room features a windowed dining nook, a built-in media cabinet, panoramic water views, and doors to the loggia.
Accessed via the graceful stairway or the home’s elevator are the private quarters. The master suite is a true oasis, with a breakfast bar, a sitting room, an office, two walk-in closets, a special shoe closet, his and her baths, and a wraparound water-view balcony.
The three upper-level guest suites are comfortable and accommodating, with many enjoying lavish baths, water views, and private balconies and one offering a convenient kitchenette.
Outdoors, the grand covered loggia soars to impressive heights, creating a sense of regal airiness and affording views of water, trees, and sky through graceful arches. Spaces for living, dining, entertaining, and lounging are offered, as is an impeccably outfitted summer kitchen and alfresco bar.
Beyond the loggia, in the fresh open air, a terrace surrounds the pool and spa. A lower deck connects to the private dock, encouraging enjoyment of the water.
The home makes the most of its enviable location, on a private point on a protected canal, with 225 feet of frontage on the Intracoastal Waterway. The rarefied environs of Admiral’s Cove — an exclusive golfing and boating community — is one of the most desirable settings in the area, with such amenities and attractions as 45 golf holes and two driving ranges, two clubhouses, a marina, a gym, restaurants, a spa, a tennis complex, dog parks, and full-time security.
