2821 Spanish River Road Residence

The art of modern living is expressed with eloquent aplomb in this brand-new showplace on the Intracoastal Waterway in The Estates, historic Old Boca Raton’s prestigious beachside enclave. Created by an award-winning Florida-based Architect Carlos A. Martin, and by noted South Florida builder, Infinity Custom Estates, this Tropical Georgian-inspired masterpiece (I call it Gulfstream Southern Classical Style) exudes serene timelessness with classic symmetry, then takes an unexpected twist with clean-lined high-style interiors by award-winning Marc-Michaels. In each detail, the vision is artistic genius, and the resulting overall effect is simply breathtaking.

10’ high French doors flow to the waterfront verandah and Hamptons-style pool from the open living/dining room, club room/library, and family room, all of which are as sumptuously comfortable as they are stunningly refined. From the gorgeous smoky-hued marble and walnut floors to the sleek custom built-ins, exquisite marble-clad fireplace, and ebony-wood “ribbon” accent wall, the design scheme beautifully balances bold impact and subtle glamour. Opening off the upstairs gallery is a waterfront lounge deck appointed as a resort-like open-air spa room, a sublime luxury. Transcending the ordinary in every aspect, this is a sophisticated Intracoastal estate, rendered to perfection with singular style.

I'm not a designer so seriously wanting feed back - Why not follow the ceiling beams as a guide rather than offset, which I find odd. The far right would seem to be inline but the left some 30+ cm off. I couldn't live with this arrangement despite loving the concept. What are the rules? Are there any?

The picture is giving you and optical illusion - due to the cabinets against the wall on the left hand side --the beams are equally spaced is this room - specially over the pool table, etc..

This finish is pretty typical of what is commonly referred to as "Hand Scraped" pre-finished wood flooring...
...most of which is a distressing effect created by machines - not by hand.

This type of product is available from most any pre-finished wood flooring manufacturer.

Correct, it is a "hand scraped' pre-engineered wood flooring - more durable in waterfront conditions -
