This is the most magnificent beachfront estate available for sale in Miramar Beach. In fact, it is one of the most magnificent homes available anywhere in Northwest Florida. There are big houses. There are mansions. And then there are mega-mansions. This is the later! The gated estate sits on almost two and one-half acres of lushly landscaped grounds that graces 135 linear feet of private crystalline beach frontage.
This grand Mediterranean styled villa encompasses 13,230 square feet of opulent space. It has six bedrooms with full en-suite luxury baths, two additional full baths, and a half bath powder room. This regal residence named “Casa Lauren” has served as a giant private family estate since it was constructed in 2000.
A fortunate buyer may do the same but this property is also zoned for Coastal Center Land Use, so it can be a lucrative opportunity for interested developers or investors. The property may be re-imagined to create a boutique beachfront hotel beside an exclusive residential community of vacation bungalows. This stunning home has a palatial presence. A grand staircase sweeps past a centered fountain up to the main entrance within a towering columned portico that resembles a classic temple.
You enter a Great Room with a soaring tray cathedral ceiling adorned by a massive crystal chandelier, gleaming inlaid multi-toned marble flooring, a floor to ceiling Carrera marble fireplace and a glass-walled palladium window that provides breathtaking views of the jeweled gulf. A wide open columned portal connects to another sunny living area with a built-in bar and another marble fireplace adjacent to a breakfast dining room. The handsome open state of the art kitchen nearby includes stainless steel appliances, carved custom cabinetry, a granite-topped angled bar and an island gas grill. The other side of the kitchen accesses a large formal dining room lighted by a shimmering crystal chandelier. Multiple walls of glass doors lead out from the living and dining rooms to the expansive raised patio that spans across the beach side of the house showcasing a vast pool.
The panoramic 180-degree patio views include the expansive sugary shoreline and emerald-hued gulf as far as one can see into the southern horizon. A long promenade down below leads across the sugary dunes to the beautiful beach. One wing of this gigantic home includes an enormous Master Bedroom Suite with a tall tray ceiling, a marble fireplace, custom shelving, two sets of double glass doors leading to the beachside pool patio, a separate dressing room with closets and a lavish luxury bath accented with marble columns. Three gorgeous Guest Suites, an office, and an excellent den are also on this main level.
An elevator connects to the downstairs which includes another Guest Suite, an extensive Wine Cellar, a gym with a sauna and an apartment with a full kitchen. A drive-thru covered parking garage at this level holds up to 25 cars.
