About Lyford Cay

Five Palms is a three-story, light filled Mediterranean style villa that includes a two-story guest cottage, totaling 13,397 sq. ft. with an additional 3,100 sq. ft. of outside covered space.

This remarkable, 9 bedroom estate stands on .68 acres at the head of the widest Lyford Cay waterway which is ideal for ocean access, beautiful views, outstanding hurricane protection and maximum security. The property maintains 126 feet on this premier canal site and has a large fully-serviced 50 foot dock with 80 feet of pilings that can accommodate a substantial luxury yacht.

The carved mahogany door of the main entrance opens into a grand two-story reception hall with French doors and massive etched glass windows that reach 18 feet and offer stunning views to the patio, pool and waterway beyond.

The floors are covered in beautifully honed Turkish travertine with all the doors and trim work made of solid mahogany. To the left of the entrance is the magnificent living room with a substantial Jerusalem limestone fireplace, 12 foot ceilings, three arched windows and a wall of French doors that open onto a patio. This, along with the adjoining formal dining room provides a wonderful social center and is a perfect space for indoor and outdoor entertaining.

To the right of the main entrance is the spacious kitchen that is large enough for a full size dining area or combination family room. The granite counters accent the custom cabinetry and the kitchen is fully equipped with a built-in fridge, two dishwashers, double oven, tall wine fridge, a large walk-in pantry, a separate desk area and lots of storage.

A grand limestone staircase stands in the main hall and extends to the second and third floors. All levels can also be accessed via the wood paneled elevator with phone and alarm system. The second floor is divided into two wings that are joined by a dramatic bridge above the main hall. In the east wing you will find the spacious master bedroom suite and a second bedroom with private bath. The master bedroom hosts a second working fireplace, two walk-in closets and luxurious bathroom with white Italian marble and stone soaking tub. A large private balcony off of the master bedroom showcases magnificent water views and access to the ground floor via an elegant, wrought-iron, spiral stair case. Two additional large bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and balcony access overlooking the canal are located in the west corridor.

The third floor is currently used as a luxurious, office space complete with conference table, wet bar, spa bath, two walk-in closets, two balconies and panoramic views in almost every direction. This space can also be accessed by elevator or separate entrance and could easily be used as a coveted fifth bedroom.

There are 6 energy efficient air-conditioners and the super insulated walls and roof help to keep energy costs low.

The guest villa provides four additional bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and its own open concept main floor that includes living, dining, powder room and kitchen area. Two of the bedrooms downstairs also have kitchens and a separate entrance which makes them ideal as a nanny suite or other staff accommodation.

Outside there are multiple covered and uncovered dining areas in both the main house and the cottage with elegant coral stone and limestone tile. There are two outdoor tables with seating for 12.

The heated 20 x 40 foot swimming pool has a Jacuzzi on the side next to a gazebo that provides another covered eating or relaxing space. The lighthouse” contains the pool pump and is convenient for storing pool accessories.

Between the main house and the cottage there is a bathroom with a shower for guests to use after swimming, a freezer room, a laundry room and additional utility rooms. The two car garage also has additional space for a workshop and storage.

For further comfort there is a full back up automatic generator that serves both the house and the cottage.

Five Palms is an exceptional tropical estate in the prestigious gated community of Lyford Cay.
