Coastal contemporary masterpiece in the heart of TequestaTequesta is a special place to call home and few homes in Tequesta are as special as Casa de la Margarita. The owners created a masterpiece for what was going to be a forever home, but sometimes forever isn't after all. This 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home boasts over 2,500 livable square feet and is dripping with finishes that most only dream, with more natural light than one could imagine, and it all opens upon a private back yard that South Florida dreams are made of.Step into the foyer and your feet will land on Statale by Walker Zanger. It's a remarkable dusky, rift cut grain porcelain tile that captures the feel of pickled wood. The owners started their remodel with the selection of this material and fell in love with Walker Zanger. In fact, this residence is loaded with it, from the Pietra Bello white marble mosaics that grace each bathroom floor, to the Cafe collection of handmade subway tile on a multitude of vertical spaces, to the herringbone honed cadet blue Jet Set stone on the full kitchen back backsplash, it's all Walker Zanger and it's all spectacular. Of course, all the windows are impact and the finishes throughout are the finest money can buy. Countertops are Stoneglass from Italy, cabinets are handcrafted of solid wood by Starmark right here in the United States, the baseboards were created to be different, the Sub-Zero refrigerator is a piece of art, as is the 36" professional induction range by Wolfe. This list goes on, and on, and you will find amazing architectural surprises at every turn. Glass walls on showers, glass doors on closets, glass shelving in custom niches, you'll even find glass inserts on 1 3/4" solid core doors whose hinges glisten. We often tell client's if you find a hinge that glistens, buy the house. You'll be so in love with everything that you might miss touches like hand forged lights with hand blown glass, that are one of a kind and once again made right here in America. You'll be so amazed you might not even notice that every window sill in the home is made from Thassos white marble, but they are. The floor plan is open, the kitchen is huge and it's the place to gather when home with family or creating a gourmet meal for guests. The guest suite stands alone and opens to the spectacular back yard that was the main attraction to the seller when they purchased the home years ago. It is surrounded by concrete block walls and is a private refuge where the owners spend the majority of their time. The landscaping is unique, the grass never needs cutting, there is a custom built pond with fountains and a huge covered terrace. It's all designed around a pool with its own heat pump to keep the water cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Even outside, you might overlook features like the bar top that was created from hulls of old boats that once floated on the waters of the Far East. Takes your time and soak it all in. The orientation is true north and that keeps the pool in the sun, and you in the shade, when you need to relax on the travertine deck that goes on forever and ever. Tequesta is special and this tiny village is an escape from the madness we so often see in other parts of South Florida, The Tequesta Country Club is a dream for golfers, if you should decide to join. The voluntary homeowners' association has two waterfront parks and their own boat ramp for access to that beautiful water that surrounds Tequesta. The sidewalks create community, the school zoning is all Jupiter and the lifestyle is as good as it gets. Anywhere. Don't blink, as this one is offered at a most favorable price for a quick sale and may not be here tomorrow. The perfect South Florida lifestyle can be yours.........
