1800 W 25th St- A Mediterranean Spectacle on Sunset Island II Embellished with Lavish Details Throughout
As soon as the elaborate wooden gates open up to the circular brick driveway, you’re instantly stunned by the natural beauty and intricate architecture of this magnificent property. Perfectly manicured trees and tall palms greet you on the way in, entering the home through an arched doorway made of delicately etched limestone.
“The first impression of the interior is truly memorable, featuring ornate wooden ceilings, limestone floors, French doors, and extravagant chandeliers” said Jill Hertzberg of The Jills. Currently, the property belongs to Steve Muss, former owner of the famous Fontainebleau Hotel.
Pass through an open doorway covered with tasseled drapes and sophisticated moldings and you’re in the cozy formal dining room. In fact, the entire home has refined finishes throughout, including intricate crown moldings, baseboards, window and door moldings, and a variety of coffered, vaulted, and exposed beam ceilings.
The gourmet open kitchen features white marble countertops, glass cabinetry, a gas-range cooking island, a water purifier, a large pantry, and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances. It also includes a snack bar island made of the same white marble that seats six people. The adjacent family room is spacious and has beautiful views of the enchanting backyard and canal, visible through the various French doors that provide ample natural light.
The expansive master bedroom suite has vaulted wooden ceilings with exposed beams and arched French doors overlooking the verdant exterior. It also includes a comfortable sitting area with a work desk, generous walk-in closets, and two separate bathrooms- one of which feels like an authentic Moroccan spa and features a large soaking tub and separate shower.
The backyard is a pure masterpiece, enveloped by lush foliage and striking canal and bay views. The T-shaped pool and Jacuzzi are both comprised of salt water systems, a true reflection of the natural elements found throughout the entire home. “Enjoy sticking your toes in the sand on the private beach or lounge on one of the hammocks hung between the palms,” suggested Jill Eber, also of The Jills.
This impressive estate also boasts a separate two-story guest house overlooking the stunning yard and pool, a private movie theater, gym, and elevator. This property is truly luxury at its finest and you can’t help but feel like you’re in a private Mediterranean paradise!
