Stunning New Listing In The Moorings 554 Riviera Drive
We are pleased to announce our newest listing at 554 Riviera Drive.
Welcome home to a stunning architectural treasure on beautiful Riviera Drive in the Moorings community. This custom southern exposure estate home was constructed by the well-respected Knauf-Koenig Group and penned by Naples based Stofft Cooney Architects. All on one level, this home is spacious yet intimate, affording large gathering opportunities in the kitchen, great room and outdoor areas, but still provides privacy in each of the four en-suite guest quarters. With a transitional design, the residence features Borano mahogany double front doors with impact glass, soaring windows surrounded by generous moldings and trim work and architecturally appealing ceiling detail. All windows and doors that are not protected by hurricane shutters are Anderson hurricane rated and all southern exposure windows are Anderson energy saving low E rated, which offer greater control over heating and cooling costs. The 7” wide plank washed light oak wood floors are made by Legno Bastone and are handcrafted in Italy and created one board at a time, one project at a time, making each completed floor unique. The wood floors are present throughout the great room, foyer, study and in all bedrooms and closets.
The kitchen is spectacular with custom made cabinetry, a built in glass door lighted display cabinet, built in bookshelves, an expansive center island with leather finished granite and a banquette seating area with custom upholstery and a quartz table top. The kitchen also features a Wolf six burner range with griddle top, a Subzero All refrigerator, 2 Subzero freezer drawers, a Wolf built in double oven, a Wolf drawer microwave oven, a Miele dishwasher, Dornbracht faucets, a generous cooks pantry and ample storage. There is also a butler’s pantry with a Subzero 132 bottle wine storage as well as integrated refrigerator and freezer drawers and a Miele integrated coffee station. The study is located in the front of the home and showcases custom Ruffino cabinetry with hidden panels for the audio visual rack and desk area, remote controlled solar shades and a 50" flat screen TV with attached Masterpiece speakers.
Enjoying southern exposure and soaring windows, the master retreat has remote controlled solar shades and two generously sized custom finished walk-in closets, each with mirrors and a sitting area. The master bathroom has a gorgeous floor to ceiling glass tiled accent wall, a freestanding soaking tub, glass frameless shower doors, dual shower heads and plenty of storage in the custom double vanity. All of the spacious guest suites also feature en-suite bathrooms, custom solar shades and floor to ceiling custom walk-in closets. As you make your way outside to the backyard oasis, you will notice the plentiful covered outdoor area, with a remote controlled gas fireplace, a 48" flat screen TV and a complete outdoor kitchen and bar area with a 36” Viking built-in grill and stainless steel refrigerator. The covered Lanai also has recessed remote controlled hurricane shutters and screens, that completely enclose the lanai and summer kitchen areas.
The gas heated saline pool is atypical for the area in that it is 41 feel in length, allowing for lap swimming, but also has a shallow entry sun shelf with entry steps, perfect for lounge chairs or little swimmers. The spa is also generously sized. At night the outdoor area is beautiful and includes LED colored pool lights and beautiful low voltage landscape lighting in the front and rear yards.
Other features include a Control4 sound system throughout most of the interior of the home and the outdoor living and pool area, an Aquacena whole house water filtration system, two point of service water faucets and filtration systems in the kitchen and butlers pantry, two tankless gas water heaters, two TraneXL 4 ton/17 SEER AC systems, a Honeywell whole house dehumidifier, a 500 gallon underground liquid propane tank and an extensive irrigation system for the lawn, flower beds and driveway. In addition, the single car garage is separately air conditioned, insulated, framed, dry walled, painted and has recessed lighting. This allows for the garage to be used as a recreation room, fitness studio or other hobby room.
