G.E.S. Construction Ltd. completes Biscayne custom estate model in Estuary at Grey Oaks
The Biscayne has a contemporary, open floor plan with more than 7,500 square feet of air conditioned living space. Currently priced at $7,495,000 furnished, the home has five bedrooms, five full and two half baths. The Biscayne’s architectural design was created by John Cooney, Partner of Stofft Cooney Architects. Sharon Gilkey of Montanna & Associates served as interior designer.
"Building and/or purchasing a custom home such as the Biscayne means more than simply owning a piece of real estate," said Greg Seligman, President and Founder, G.E.S. Construction Limited. "It’s about owning a signed original work, which can never be duplicated."
Quality construction is evident in every detail of the home’s distinctive architecture, beginning with the impact-rated handcrafted mahogany entry door which opens to a dramatic foyer with stepped ceiling. The gallery hallway leads to a spacious great room accented by impact-resistant Anderson windows. A cozy fireplace and customized stained wood paneled ceiling complement this warm and inviting living space, which flows into an open dining room with double tray ceiling. Marble, limestone tile and hardwood floors are infused throughout the home.
One of the crown jewels of the first floor is the chef-inspired kitchen. Every aspect of the kitchen is designed to the highest culinary standards. Custom millwork with stone countertops accent the Miele gourmet appliance package. A spacious walk-in pantry is outfitted with built-in storage and an under-counter icemaker. A custom, 102-bottle built-in Miele wine refrigerator is integrated with a wood-paneled wall. The kitchen expands to a breakfast area with additional storage, including an office work station. A floor-to-ceiling glass wall overlooks the serene reflecting pool. Pocket sliding doors lead to the outdoor living and entertainment area.
Conveniently located near the kitchen, a spacious utility room is designed with custom cabinetry, quartz countertops, Maytag washer and dryer, utility sink and a drip-dry area. A private powder room is within close proximity.
The luxurious master suite features a gracious master bedroom with sitting area and French doors that open to the pool. Spacious his-and-her walk-in closets provide the ultimate organizational experience. The master bathroom is adorned with marble flooring and is designed with the most exquisite features. A freestanding Kohler soaking tub with customized featured wall is complemented by a separate, generous marble shower, replete with bench seating and luxurious body sprays. Dual vanities are accented by marble countertops and discrete his-and-her water closets include bidets.
The first floor also boasts a club room with detailed coffered ceiling, custom wood built-in cabinetry, hardwood floors and stained wood doors. For special guests, a private VIP suite is designed with sumptuous hardwood floors. This enclave includes a separate living area, morning kitchen, cabana bath and walk-in closet.
