In Florida, entertainment, sun and waterparks aren’t exclusive to Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World. There’s a vibrant lakefront estate in Delray Beach that doubles as a pop art wonderland, where kids and adults will be content staying home for fun in the sun. The property is billed as a year-round vacation retreat, and if you live in the north, it’s easy to see why.
Located in a gated community about 200 miles from Disney World, 16155 Quiet Vista Circle (even that sounds dreamy) spans 2.5 land acres—boasting a pop art gallery, a backyard waterpark, a red clayish serpentine driveway, south-facing waterfront views, and blue skies to the horizon. The turnkey residence is listed by Mark Nestler and John Poletto of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty for $7.55 million.
“The mansion is in Stone Creek Ranch, the newest and most exclusive luxury community in the Boca Raton/Delray Beach area,” says Nestler. “The extensive use of cast stone exterior clad walls and columns, as well interior marble columns with marble applications around the doors and archways, give a sense of timeless elegance coupled with grand flowing space.”
The immaculate 10,391-square-foot estate comes off like an all-inclusive resort, beautified with modern Mediterranean architectural elements (multi-red roofs, arched windows), a fountain courtyard entrance, meticulous landscaping, and desirable amenities.
The palatial residence offers impeccable design details like coffered and muraled ceilings, lavish chandeliers, venetian plaster walls, marble floors, and arched doorways. The home features six bedrooms (two of which are expansive master suites), seven-and-a-half baths, a 500-bottle wine cellar, and a Sonos sound system.
While adults may appreciate the wine cellar, fitness studio and the 100-foot art gallery in the heart of the home, kids will marvel at the irresistible living room Mickey Mouse sculpture.
Pop art weaves its way throughout the contemporary home. That elegant living room impresses with its coffered ceiling, chaise loungers, low custom tables, and the glassed-in Mickey Mouse centerpiece crafted from what looks like retro road signs.
Even the wine cellar showcases brilliant wall painting landscapes framed by artsy wine racks and a wine cellar door mural. Other highlighted art includes the office-library’s large Mickey and Minnie Mouse puzzle wall, pop icon murals (Sinatra, Pablo Picasso, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mona Lisa, Albert Einstein), hallway silkscreens, and built-in collectible vase shelves.
A banquet-sized dining room offers lavish chandeliers mixed with a mural ceiling, blown-glass sculpture trophies, and rock icon wall art. The large open kitchen (with twin islands, luxury appliances, and marble countertops and floors) flows seamlessly into a breakfast nook and family room. The master suite wing boasts light-inviting, arched windows, decorative floor vases, and art sketches.
Outdoors, kids can play in the fountained “Splash Zone” waterpark which is framed by a dual loggia-terrace and a parterre garden—with lake vistas. The property also includes plans to build an oversized pool and an additional expansive patio.
“The backyard waterpark is reminiscent of what you would see at Disney World or in city parks, and [it] is a one-of-a-kind play area for children of all ages,” says Poletto.
Custom built in 2016, the dramatic estate was designed by Brenner Architecture Group, developed by Orlando-based Igor Teplitsky, and built by Robert White of Boca Raton.
“The sheer newness of this home and community offers an uncompromising lifestyle that stands out in the area,” Poletto adds. “It’s perfect for a family that loves entertaining both indoors and out.”
