Hidden away on a peninsula behind the guarded gates of prestigious Windmill Ranch Estates, this architecturally striking estate is at one with natures beauty on sprawling approximately 3.5-acre grounds embraced by approximately 680 feet of lakefront. Mature trees canopy the sweeping drive that arrives at the entry by one of several garden waterfalls among this resort-inspired tropical paradise.
Bringing the lush outdoors inside is a theme of the airy six-bedroom residence where expansive glass walls, sleek lines, and gallery-like wall spaces interplay in the timeless contemporary design by award-winning South Florida architect Randall Stofft. The verdant lakeside views unfold from the glassed gallery into the lofty living room, set off by a raised piano alcove next to the main seating space. For effortless entertaining, glass doors here and in the large family/club room beckon to a series of outdoor living spaces around the exotic lagoon-like pool where leafy greenery, a grotto, and the sounds of rock waterfalls add to the worlds-away enchantment. An office/media room and a gym are also featured in the home's well-laid out floor-plan.
In a voluminous private wing, the master suite creates a restful haven with its own romantic lakefront view through the trees. Past the pool terrace, a walkway leads to the separate guest house positioned near the point of this compound-like property. The sweeping lakefront lawns provide added outdoor space for entertaining or just enjoying this breathtaking setting in Windmill Ranch Estates, widely considered the finest address in the beautiful community of Weston, only about half an hour east of Fort Lauderdale.

Gorgeous tropical gardens, lush trees, and broad lawns are part of the park-like landscape.

Entering the double doors into the foyer places the focus on the lush lakeside landscape seen through the gallery's window wall. Continuing the soaring estimated 23-foot ceilings and expansive lakeside window walls, the open living room includes a raised piano alcove and leads out to the terrace. Across the gallery, the open dining room is set off by a lighted artwork niche. The sleek custom kitchen encompasses a glassed breakfast bay centered on the gorgeous poolside view, which continues into the versatile family/club room, perfect for entertaining, complete with a professional-style walk-in wet bar, media center, and billiard/game area. A gym with full bath is adjacent. The media room provides an open office area next to the viewing/conversation area. Opening by the hot tub on the lakeside pool terrace, the master suite is encompassed in a voluminous wing where a fireplace anchors the inviting sitting area. Two walk-in closets accompany the suite's marble-finished bath which offers a jetted tub and a walk-in shower.
