On the market for the first time in 45 years, the Carpenter Estate offers a unique and refined combination of location, exclusivity, and architectural significance. Built in 1964, the classic coastal property sits behind the guarded gate at the exclusive Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club enclave, a community that includes a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, full-service marina, fitness center, swimming pool, tennis and croquet courts, and fine dining.
The sprawling one-story residence is designed with an understated classic elegance. The rambling floor plan, high ceilings, and abundant natural light create a sense of ease and openness, and the open concept design makes the house perfect for entertaining. Tongue-and-groove beam ceiling treatments, a board-and-batten gallery hallway, and white veined marble and slate floors strike a balance between timeless sophistication and rusticity. The secluded primary suite is an escape unto itself, including a foyer with wet bar, a courtyard-facing sitting room, an expansive bedroom with waterway and pool views, boutique wardrobe with door to a full cabana bath with shower, and the primary marble bath with Roman tub.
Outside, mature banyan trees create shade and privacy. The fenced and manicured landscape complements the architectural flow of the home. A pool, multiple patios, and an entertaining pavilion with service bar are designed to accommodate large outdoor parties.
A detached guest house features a turreted entry foyer, marble-floor family room overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway, two gracious guest ensuites (one facing the waterfront), a guest kitchen and two-car garage.
