The Estates at Acqualina in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla., a 50-story luxury beachfront condominium tower with plans to open in 2020, will offer 245 lavish dwellings including two single-family ground-floor residences. Casa D’Oro, one of these exquisite homes, boasts an 11,605-square-foot, two-story gated residence with a lush landscaped garden and direct access to a private beach. Created with elegant yet relaxed indoor and outdoor spaces by interior designer Isabel Tragash of STA Architectural Group in Miami, this unique “home within a condo” concept is richly imbued with amenities such as a private elevator, onyx walls and marble flooring, a pool with cabana, a summer kitchen and a garage spacious enough for six vehicles.

The opulent master bedroom is a tranquil retreat with scenic floor-to-ceiling doors and windows that flow effortlessly from the bedroom out to the patio, pool and ocean. Marble flooring throughout only adds to this striking retreat fashioned in neutral tones with shimmery metal accents and natural stone finishes.

Outdoors, the spectacular private pool lends the perfect balance between luxury and a relaxed South Florida lifestyle. The indoors flows seamlessly out to the patio where stylish chaise lounges and swing chairs from Fendi Casa’s Luxury Living line are situated poolside by a landscaped garden and the Atlantic Ocean mere steps away.

Known for her meticulous attention to detail, Tragash creates a private oasis connecting interiors to the ocean in an effortless open plan that flows like the sea. From the moment of entry through a private foyer, a spacious great room comes into view with two living areas styled with Fendi Casa furnishings. Elegant white sofas, velvety armchairs and a “Contour” daybed designed by Paul Mathieu for Luxury Living enhance entertaining along with an intimate conversation area near the fireplace. Breathtaking water views can be enjoyed from almost every room in the home including the master bedroom, where grand architectural elements such as panoramic windows and tall columns join with glossy marble flooring to blur the line between inside and out.
