Exceptional renovation combines classic style with quintessential Key West charm to create the archetype for the perfect indoor-outdoor lifestyle. With its expansive glass walls that open to a central courtyard, the home’s three main dwellings are connected by beautifully designed verandas on both the first and second floors. From the coveted main floor master and the full-size, two-car garage to three guest suites, all with their own baths, and one with its own kitchen and seating area, this home was designed for luxurious living and sophisticated entertaining.
The main house, which is new construction, includes one guest suite, the chef’s kitchen, living and dining areas, a half bath and a light-dappled retreat that overlooks a private garden and is currently used as a den. Soaring ceilings take advantage of the light from large dormered windows high above and part of the multi-pitched roof lines that make this home an architectural delight.
It is here in the main house that you’ll first notice the white-painted, lateral wood walls that riff off the classic Dade County pine and shiplap prevalent in old Key West construction. The walls add architectural appeal and depth throughout every room in all three living areas. The kitchen is equipped with Viking range, Sub-Zero refrigerator-freezer and two Miele dishwashers. Within the main house, but with its own entrance is one of the three guest suites.
Perpendicular to the main house is the master bedroom cottage, which opens onto the central courtyard through glass doors that span the width of the room, ensuring one can hear the music of the water fall in the pool and take advantage of the breezes from the lushly landscaped gardens. Three large, built-in closets in the master ensure storage space for two.
The second guest suite is above the master and includes its own kitchen and sitting area that opens to the second-floor covered veranda overlooking the central courtyard. It’s a perfect place for morning coffee and quiet meditation. Across the breezeway and just past the mature mango tree is the third guest suite. The large suite with its own bath and washer-dryer built into the walk-in closet is newly renovated, sits above the garage and overlooks the pool. Floors throughout the entire home are distressed oak and custom crafted in Michigan.
The extraordinary courtyard is fully landscaped to create sweeping vistas for large scale entertaining and private spaces for intimate gatherings. The multi-level, salt pool with privacy wall and water feature and a covered gazebo welcome guests in day or night. In between, meandering paths add a sense of Zen-like serenity echoed by the hand-crafted wall art in the gazebo. The gardens, a portion of which was created from the original koi ponds, are a wonderful blend of native and ornamental landscaping with underground irrigation and spectacular lighting for evening entertaining.
The home, which is in the X flood zone, was constructed to withstand Category 5 hurricanes and is above the 100-year flood level. The main and master bedroom dwellings were elevated to nine feet above flood level. The home includes impact resistant windows and doors and the walls include spray foam insulation. An on-demand gas water heater ensures energy efficiency.
The combination of classic and modern architectural design, the attention to detail, and the sophisticated integration of a high-end renovation and exceptional functionality make this home a perfect choice for experienced entertainers or those seeking a family compound.
Key West living is all about the integration of indoor and outdoor spaces, creating a seamless flow between elegant rooms made for comfort and gardens that beckon in the twilight and daytime sunshine. This exquisite contemporary estate located at the edge of the prestigious Casa Marina area may well be one of Key West’s finest examples of perfect indoor-outdoor living.
1316 Villa Mill Lane is located on an almost-hidden lane that includes a handful of expensive private properties, ensuring privacy and exclusivity for discerning homeowners. The home has been recently renovated to exceptionally high standards, weaving together the open airiness of white-washed contemporary architecture with the island feel that makes Key West extraordinary.
