Dan Duckham Masterpiece South Florida USA
2040 Coral Reef Drive, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Florida 33062
Masterfully designed home by architect, Dan Duckham, located in the Bel Aire neighborhood, a gated community in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, South Florida, US. Dan Duckham was first inspired by the organic architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright with the fusion of the outdoors and indoors through the geometric homes he creates, each uniquely designed. And this home does not disappoint from the moment you enter, you step into the tropical outdoor gardens indigenous to South Florida to a spectacular lagoon pool with the soothing sounds of its fabulous water feature. Embellished by a tropical landscaped canopy whereby the home has been built around. An age-old Gumbo Limbo tree indigenous to South Florida, wrapped around itself drapes far above the property that’s been built around it. With the unique spaces carefully created by Dan Duckham, conversation areas that surround the pool on all sides lead you through the main dwelling and on the other side to the separate structure we call the cabana guest house.
To the main structure through the large covered patio to French doors leading to the well-equipped chef’s kitchen lined with cabinetry, concrete countertops, stainless appliances and a cooking island flowing into the large & functional outdoor kitchen. Wide open space to the dining room with built-in cabinetry, spectacular maintained terrazzo floors and French doors leading to a private outdoor garden atrium. From the dining room leads you to the living room with a rustic flair, a Koi pond, fireplace, stone floors, floor to ceiling windows, and it too has French doors leading to the outdoor courtyard.
“Dan Duckham, architect, brings the outdoors to the indoors with his rustic style!”
The entire layout flows eloquently through each room leading to the courtyard. From the floating staircase is the master suite located on the second floor with a large sitting area with a doorway leading to the rooftop for private sun bathing and meditation. A uniquely designed extra-large master bath which in fact is the only room that has a ninety degree angled wall, is well apportioned with a large glass shower, double sink vanity and an abundance of built-in cabinetry with stone flooring & the shower, stone lined walls in addition to many windows that allow the natural beauty and warmth of the South Florida tropical sunshine. Cabana guest suite detached from the main structure. It has enormous volume ceilings with built-in cabinetry and sliding doors to the courtyard and the pool.
