105 Churchill Way, Manalapan: Hidden away in Old Florida serenity, Point Manalapan is an exclusive guard-gated enclave on Hypoluxo Island, surrounded by the Intracoastal Waterway, with the ocean beach just across the causeway. For shopping and dining, Palm Beach is eight miles away, and Manalapan residents enjoy deeded privileges at the Five-Diamond Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa and its La Coquille Club.
In a cul-de-sac on a street named after Winston Churchill, who was a frequent visitor to Manalapan, this Plantation-style residence presides over a half acre. A brick-paver driveway circles around to the welcoming entry porch, and a covered loggia with a summer kitchen overlooks the 18-by-30-foot pool set within an expansive lawn and gardens.
With two two-car garages and a detached guest house, this gracious Plantation-style estate features a metal roof, hand-honed wide-plank wood flooring, hurricane-impact windows and doors, and custom moldings. With a well-conceived floor plan to optimize views, the living room, dining room and family room open to covered loggia and patio overlooking the pool area. The cook-island kitchen features professional-grade Thermador appliances, custom wood cabinets, granite countertops, tile backsplash, breakfast area, and a new bar and menu station. The large master suite features a private balcony, huge closet with built-ins, and a granite master bathroom with a steam shower, free-standing tub, new To To toilet, dual sinks, and a new make-up station. The residence has four more ensuite bedrooms, with one that opens to the front hanging balcony.
