The Ciscayne Plan: Designed for Luxury

There are paintings of beauty that make you stop and stare. Contemplate. Like Van Gogh’s Lilies, which I saw this month at the Getty. And, there are homes like The Ciscayne Plan: Designed for Luxury by Living Concepts which you know, even from the outside, will hold treasures on the inside. This is no ordinary home. Join me as we walk through the home and let the pictures control the conversation.

The Mediterranean home has 6453 square feet. The three-car garage is tucked in the back. There are five full baths and one powder room. Five bedrooms with the master suite down (first floor) give the owner plenty of room to offer a growing family the space it needs, or for guests to retreat when necessary.

The portico (porch) has three arches. Above, there is a balcony with three arched windows. Red roof tiles on a gently sloping roof and stucco on the exterior are typical of this style.

     The First Floor

First, before we explore the rest of the first floor, dwell on the details in this foyer. The coffered ceiling is two stories. (Coffer means indentation). Stone columns with arches above, a winding staircase on the left and ornate railings on the overlook create a stunning picture. Definitely designed for luxury.

Then, the dining room is on the right and the office on the left (the latter having a fireplace). The butler’s pantry is in the corner of the kitchen closest to dining.

Next, walking from the foyer to the back, there is the great room. The coffered ceiling continues here.

Straight ahead is the covered lanai, an outdoor space that invites meditation. Designed for luxury? Yes! The pool, of course, is optional.

The lanai also opens up into the family room. A fireplace is at the far wall, and it has shelves on either side (for your books, of course).

This open area leads to the kitchen. The island has seating, as well as designated space for your double sink and dishwasher. A walk-in pantry is on the opposite corner of the butler’s pantry.

Then, from the kitchen, we walk into a multi-purpose area. First, on your left is the covered porch. It runs the length of the great room and has a door that opens up into the three-car garage. Entrance into the garage is on the right side with another door on the far wall leading to the outside. 

Next, back inside and straight ahead, are the second set of stairs going up to the second floor. A reach-in closet is under the stairs here. The powder room is between the stairs and covered porch. Then, the second office and laundry room, (which has a utility sink), are on the right side of the stairs. Not only is the Ciscayne plan designed for luxury, but it is also planned for practicality.

Finally, back in the gallery and walking towards the left side of the home, we reach the master suite. A reach-in closet is under the stairs and a niche is on the left. The sleeping area is at the back of the home. It has access to the covered lanai.

Next, there are two sumptuous walk-in closets. Then, inside the master bath, there are two single sinks. The toilet is behind a door for privacy. A circular walk-in shower is “bumped out” on the left wall. The soaking tub is in the far-right corner. It has an arched ceiling and is designed for luxury.

     Second Floor

First, using the stairs on the right side of the home, you will notice a generous walk-in closet on your right side. This one is not attached to any bedroom, making its purpose multi-functional. Use it for seasonal clothes, sportswear or perhaps to store an overflow of coats and shoes.

Then, immediately on your right, a door leads to stairs going up for attic access. A reach-in closet on the left is underneath the stairs. Next, the recreation room offers you 254 square feet of room for entertaining. Air Hockey? Billiards? So many choices!

There are four bedroom suites here on the second floor. Each suite has its own walk-in closet, bath and linen storage. Suites #2 and #3 have similar baths with toilets, single sink and shower/tub. Suites #4 and #5 have walk-in showers rather than the shower/tub. These two bedroom suites also open up onto the balcony. Finally, suite #5 has an additional sink and a laundry chute– designed for luxury and practicality!
