Welcome to Casa Blanca....an exclusive and enchanting private waterfront retreat located in the prestigious residential enclave of Lyford Cay.
The world of luxury real estate is brimming with listings of large homes with super-sized rooms and features galore. But rarely does a home come on the market that marries warmth with wonder like Casa Blanca.
An architectural delight, Casa Blanca is sheer perfection in beach cottage feel, constructed with extraordinary strength of premium materials, with fine finishing touches, a casual ambiance and inviting soft nautical decor that says welcome home.
Enter through the lushly landscaped gardens to the main house which seems to float into the blues and greens surrounding it - drawing you through the open, inviting living room to the panorama outdoors, a vista stretching as far as the eye can see, over white sand beach and turquoise ocean beyond.
Basics only begin to tell the story: 4 bedrooms - all en-suite, Brazilian hardwood floors, tongue & groove Cathedral ceiling, Grand Piano, media room with 85 flat screen TV and electric roll down black out blinds, private courtyard for entertaining with built in BBQ and bar, seating area, dining gazebo and stone fountain, sweeping vistas, resort quality heated swimming pool with intimate spa and rainwater shower, stunning kitchen with white marble counter tops, massive center island, and a dining room that seats 10.
Completely renovated in 2011, Casa Blanca is situated on well over an acre of oceanfront land in one of the most exclusive communities in the hemisphere. Discerning residents of Lyford Cay enjoy a championship golf course, twelve tennis courts, a complete marina, private school and world-class cuisine at the Club. A half-mile of powdery white beach, twenty-four hour security and privileges of the rarest kind distinguish Lyford Cay as a truly unique place to live.
While the cinematic-like setting sets Casa Blanca apart, the residence itself is nothing short of breathtaking. Two words: Style and Leisure are written all over it. The elaborate master suite encompasses the entire southern end of the home. Enter through the foyer to your home away from home. Highlights include: his & her walk-in closets, vaulted ceilings, dramatic TV lift with the push of a button, and bay window with superb ocean views. The master bathroom is truly a revelation: a divine oasis straight out of a magazine. White marble flanks the entire space encompassing a free standing soaking tub, separate shower with rainwater shower head, his & her vanities, and private outdoor sunning area with a water feature.
Additional accommodations include a two bedroom, two bath staff annex off the kitchen, loft currently being used as an office, children's TV room, private study, and a 1 bedroom pool house ideal for guests.
While the seaside beauty lends a gentleness to the profile of its placement, the home's specs and mechanics are an engineer's dream. The house was built to withstand a category 5 hurricane. All windows have automatic roll down shutters. There is a 35,000-gallon rainwater cistern. There's 20,000 gallons of propane storage, all commercial wiring, distribution panels and a full 45KW automatic back-up generator.
From automated systems and lighting provided by engineers to the stunning sunsets at dusk over Clifton Bay provided by Mother Nature, Casa Blanca is a home where everyone's favorite season lasts all year.
