Imagine waking up to a stretch of your own private beach along the east coast of a renowned luxury destination in Palm Beach County, a sandy oasis spanning over half an acre. An elevator descends to the main floor and you stroll outside, past the shimmering saltwater pool, for a seaside breakfast at a VIP table within earshot of breaking waves along the Atlantic Ocean. If it sounds like the first day of a weekend escape at a world-class resort, it's not, It's the first day of the rest of your life at an epic oceanfront property in idyllic Highland Beach that elevates the concept of coastal living—in some cases, literally. Indeed, the six-bedroom estate is perched 17 feet above sea level (unique to the area) and sits in the center of a new 500 foot long seawall, further adding to the gated home's privacy and security. But, of course, what's inside also counts. Just beyond the oversized drive-thru marble-paved motor court and lush landscaping that fronts this multistory gem, the entry opens to reveal a majestic double staircase that spirals up toward a soaring 30-foot ceiling. Dramatic 20-foot high-impact windows in the grand salon add to the grandeur, bringing the outdoor splendor of the sparkling Atlantic Ocean inside. An air of sophistication and comfort permeates the stately, oversized spaces of a layout that encompasses more than 12,000 SF under air. Along with six full baths and two half-baths and an elevator to service all four levels, the estate boasts an auto aficionado's air-conditioned dream drive-thru garage and showroom that can accommodate 12 cars. Built for entertaining and family gatherings, the home also is designed with three kitchens: a primary gourmet space with state-of-the-art appliances, a kitchen in one of the two private first-floor suites, and a summer kitchen. Speaking of which, the exquisitely rendered exterior setting, with detail-rich architecture, is a resort-style sanctuary unto itself. The saltwater pool features a swim-up bar; the loggia area; there's a cabana room and second spa; and nearly 2,000 SF of outdoor balconies, terraces, patios that provide additional opportunities for private sunbathing, alfresco dining and unobstructed views of sunrises and sunsets. A full-house natural gas-driven electric generator and a new roof under warranty provide modern amenities for your comfort and convenience. Affluent Highland Beach is an ideal South Florida backdrop, just a short drive away from the best restaurants and shops at Boca Raton's Mizner Park and Delray Beach's Atlantic Avenue, as well as entertainment venues, financial institutions, and private and international airports. Presenting Villa Patek. Sometimes, the greatest escape is right in your own backyard.
