Tradition with a twist is the story behind the handiwork of interior designer, John Cialone, ASID of Tom Stringer Design in Chicago and Architect William Weitsma, AIA, locally known for his work in Gulf Stream. Gutted to the walls, this spectacular 2006 renovation and addition doubled the size of the home. Fresh, inspiring palette of colors embrace upon entrance into the oversized-living room with fireplace and custom wood Ultimate Door impact French doors. The gleaming Brazilian mesquite hardwood floors are throughout the stunning home. The Dining Room is fully complimented by Butler’s Pantry with Carrera Marble counters, stainless steel dishwasher, sink and icemaker. The heart of the home is the lively kitchen with Kitchenaid and Dacor appliances and large Carrera Marble island, a pastry chef’s dream. No detail is left undone throughout the grand master suite with His-and-Her bathrooms decked out in Waterworks splendor, built-in cherry office, beautiful Stark wool carpet and electric blackout shades. Special attention went into the safety of the home, complete with 12’ X 6’ safe room, five point locking doors, and roof renovation approved by structural engineers. The custom Ultimate Door impact French Doors from the casual living room and kitchen open to the inviting outdoor covered living area with views of the cool, crystal blue pool and its fountain. The lush garden, designed by Thurston Garden Design, includes a historic ficus tree and five citrus trees. This extraordinary home is a culmination of many talents, all with the vision of creating a luxurious, comfortable home full of light and maintaining its old Florida charm. The home is twice recipient of the Home of the Month by Lake Ida Property Association and was also awarded “Best Home in Delray”.
