Poised on an oversized corner lot in the exclusive Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club, 298 W Key Palm Road is the quintessence of spacious, modern living. Masterfully constructed by SRD Building Corp, this turn-key home is the modern standard for South Florida luxury waterfront paradises.

Surrounded by palm trees and tranquil breezes, the home’s lavish 11,471 square feet, high-end architecture and thoughtful amenities anticipate the homeowner’s every need. The entrance features a generous gated motor court, a feature water wall and a showstopping foyer. With a touch of a button, the floor-to-ceiling automated blinds simultaneously rise to welcome residents home. Subtle lighting is scattered throughout the home and is controlled by Crestron smart home technology. The open floor plan and grand atrium-style foyer entry show off polished 72” porcelain, a contemporary floating staircase, and sweeping waterfront views.

Inside this sprawling mansion, there are six-bedroom suites, eight full and two half bathrooms, and five air-conditioned garage bays, including a signature showroom-style garage with a glass wall divider adjoining the private library and office. The interiors, flawlessly curated by P&H Interiors, incorporate warm, rich wood accents, textured walls and beautiful tiling. Turn-key fittings include beautiful modern furniture throughout the home and carefully chosen glassware and china. 

  • The living room houses a sleek linear gas fireplace with imported slab and offers sweeping views of the pool and waterway.
  • The private office features custom built-ins and a showroom-style garage - perfect for the passionate car collector.
  • The club room has an 85” mounted Sony TV, dynamic surround sound system, entertainer’s double-sided bar, temperature-controlled 620-bottle glass wine room, and billiards space.

  • The owner’s suite is a sumptuous retreat boasting a morning bar, his-and-hers baths, boutique-style walk-in closets, a sitting/reading room, and an exercise room with a full spa bath, steam shower and floor-to-ceiling windows opening up to a private patio. Custom upholstered walls provide texture and warmth to the bright and airy space. 
  • First- and second-floor laundry rooms boast custom cabinets, Caesarstone countertops, drip dry areas, sinks and Electrolux washers and dryers. The upper laundry room boasts a dog shower for the family’s pets. 
  • The upstairs bedrooms open up to a massive balcony with stunning views of the backyard and waterway.

The outdoor space is designed for year-round enjoyment, with carefully curated areas for lounging, cooking, dining, swimming and boating. Outdoor features include:
