27 Jan Just Listed 1719 Brentwood Dr
Named the “Brentwood Villa”, this private enclave defines the creative Florida lifestyle as if walking into an architectural magazine. The main residence and guesthouse occupy a beautiful half acre site surrounding Lake Estelle; a private lake bordered by majestic oaks. Built in 1982, the main residence is a contemporary villa with floor to ceiling glass, high ceilings, and striking views of the private lake. The primary residence is 2,500sqft, featuring an open living area with fireplace, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, dining area, and media room. An amazing commercial kitchen is a central focus with a Vulcan 6-burner gas range, stainless steel Subzero refrigerator, and continuous maple block countertop and prep island. The bedrooms are arranged in the western wing and feature built-in bookshelves and drawers below closets. The master suite offers max privacy with an oversized walk in closet and master bath complete with custom designed marble tub for soaking. All bedrooms feature 8’ high windows with water views. The primary living spaces are organized around a sweeping exterior deck perched 6’ high above the lake. An absolutely beautiful overlook! This incredible deck with a 54’ long deck rail is a central area for outdoor living and entertaining. Built in 2003 by the architect owner, the 600 sqft guesthouse was constructed to provide an architectural design studio and sleeping quarters for guests. With a 12’ high ceiling and glass overlook to the lake, the space creates the sensation of living in amongst nature. Living/sleeping areas are supported by a large bathroom and closet within the suite. The building also includes a 2-car oversized garage with generous space for storage and features an oversized 18’ x 8’ high garage door for taller vehicles. There is also an air-conditioned basement workshop below the guest studio for special projects. Connecting the primary house to the guest studio is a central feature of the Brentwood Villa. A winding pathway paved with more than 9,200 beautiful red bricks is a strong connection between buildings. The path moves along the perimeter of Lake Estelle flanked by bromeliads, iris, bamboo and gentle garden walls. Changes of level create different views of the lake – with broad and generous stairs to make the passage between the structures a meditative delight. This estate would be the perfect airbnb set up as well just minutes from Clearwater Beach!
