GOLF and the beauty of Atlantis truly set it apart from others. Atlantis is a gated upscale single family community built around two outstanding regulation length golf courses. Beyond golf, the overall appearance, green neighborhood feel and gated security is exceptional.
Two beaches with waterfront restaurants are 10-12 minutes drive. There's dining, entertainment, cultural and sporting activities all around Atlantis. The JFK hospital and surrounding medical practices is almost within walking distance. There's a very clean uncrowded gym 7 or 8 minutes drive.
When you arrive you're greeted by a beautiful 2900 sq.ft. home with circular drive, lush landscaping and a portico over double entry doors.
When you enter you're immediate first impressions are of a luxurious open design and the view over two fairways and garden. The view is 1/4 mile of unobstructed fairways with no houses or other structures. The garden is professionally designed and the lawn lush. Weekly yard service is included in the rent.
Every room on the garden side of the house enjoys that vista including the kitchen, the Florida room with 30' of floor to ceiling glass sliders and also the Master suite and the office. Both have French doors to the garden and patios.
Our home has a preferred southeast exposure and it's open design maximizes the garden and golf course views. It's bright and sunny. There are craftsman furnishings and custom framed fine art throughout. It has the overall feel of a period English Caribbean home. It's designed and furnished to reflect the style and lightness of Florida interwoven with fine English antiques. This is also reflected in Ralph Lauren faux painted walls. Everything is first class. It's not at all furnished or intended a "rental."
There is wireless internet throughout and it extends into the yard for use while relaxing on deck chairs or dining on the teak table deck. There's A 55" HD TV in the Master suite and a 40" HD TV in the Florida room. NETFLIX is included.
There are top of the line designer quality fans in every room.
We love to cook so there's every kitchen pot, pan ,tool or device imaginable. Plenty of dishware and cutlery. The open kitchen has the golf and garden view. A 10' granite top pass thru and bar ties the kitchen to the Florida room for dining and entertaining. All appliances are stainless steel and kitchen counter tops are granite. The kitchen cabinetry, floor tiles, granite tops and wood trim are color coordinated. The cabinets and pantry have food stuffs, spices and herbs for use on the honor system. We ask you to replace what you use. There's an herb garden in the garden and, depending on the season, some fresh organic fruit, tomatoes and vegetables.
The lushly carpeted Master suite is 425 sq.ft. including closet and bath. It has the garden/golf fairway view through French doors. It has a king size 4 poster bed with an excellent foam top mattress and has a very oversized custom marble shower with artistic inlay. There are double sinks. The dressing room is very large. The French doors lead to a garden patio, table and deck chairs. There's a 55" HDTV.
The extremely large 332 sq.ft. Guest suite is also lushly carpeted and has a new Queen size pillow top mattress. The en suite bath has double sinks and both a shower and tub. There's 15' of window for a bright airy feel. There's also a bookcase with a variety of books.
The large third bedroom is wood paneled with a Brazilian cherry floor and is also en suite. When not a bedroom it's set up as a large semi formal dining room seating six furnished with timeless grace and craftsmanship.
Altogether there are 4 1/2 baths in the house. All are marble. There are full en suite baths with the Master, the Guest, the bed/dining room and the office. There's a half bath in the Florida room with garden access.
The overall feel is grand room style.
The 650 sq.ft. (40'x16') Florida room is bigger than some homes. It has a 30' wall of glass sliders overlooking the garden and golf course. The flooring is Travertine marble bordered by accent marble. There's a full size glass top dining table seating four where we enjoy most meals for the view and casual feel. Meals from the kitchen are easily served via the pass thru to the FL room. There's a 40" HDTV.
The living room has an adjacent library that can also be a dining area seating six. There's a large wet bar for entertaining. All the flooring is Brazilian cherry wood and the living room has English leather sofa and chairs. It's intended to evoke the feel of Caribbean English elegance.
The office has a full desk, Brazilian cherry wood flooring and French doors leading to a small patio and has a full garden/golf course view. There's also a full marble bathroom for office and convenient Florida room use.
The very large yard has patios, lush custom garden with winding walkways. One leads to a deck with teak wood table and chairs and a BBQ grill with a smoker. Although the golf course fairways are always in view from the yard, there's complete privacy because the beautiful homes on either side are completely masked by our towering palms, fruit trees, bushes, flowers and plants.
My name is States and I'm a graduate from Colgate University with an MBA from Columbia University. Retired now, I an international executive and business owner. Originally from the northeast, I have lived and worked in various foreign countries. I raised three sons in Seattle before moving to Florida to enjoy the perfect weather and all that Atlantis has to offer. My wife Jessie is a Mt. Holyoke graduate and nutritionist from New England.
We are accomplished cooks, love to travel and really enjoy being on the golf course, near the beach, dining, theater, boating, fishing and many other things nearby. Atlantis is also a bird sanctuary and we enjoy seeing them at the bird feeder in the yard.
States Coyle purchased this house in 2004
I acquired this property because it has a top quality open floor plan nestled up to two fairways and Atlantis itself. Truly one of a kind. It's a tiny city comprising 834 acres of fine homes with about 3,000 residents in what's considered by many to be one of the most impeccable country club communities in the U.S.. Everything in the city is built around two regulation length par 72 golf courses. Renters have complete playing and social privileges at the Atlantis Country Club. The club house restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and the club has a full social calendar and frequent live entertainment.
The city is completely secluded and protected by landscaped fences. There are three guard gated entrances. Atlantis is patrolled by its own highly trained police force and there's veritably no crime. I've lived here for12 years and can attest to that.
The majority of homes border on fairways. Not only is the city green but it's also a bird sanctuary. There's a park-like feel pleasing to the eye, stress free and relaxing. The many benefits of our home are described in the description portion. It's very relaxing and stress free.
The beach is minutes away as are dining, dancing, movies and live theater productions. iBoth Costco and Publix supermarkets are 5 minutes drive. There's always something going on at the Atlantis Country Club. Never a dull moment.
Atlantis is a beautiful upscale walled and guard gated city of 3,000 built around an excellent 18 hole 6805 yard par 72 golf semi private golf course. The first hole tee box is just a few minutes from my home for your pleasure. Atlantis also an excellent 27 hole private golf course. My home overlooks two private course fairways. Lushly landscaped, Atlantis is a golf lover's delight. Several beaches are within 10 minutes drive, including the gorgeous Lake Worth beach and pier, with top rated Benny's on the Beach restaurant on the pier. 12 minutes to the north is West Palm Beach and 15 minutes to the south are Delray Beach and Boca Raton. They are known for many fine restaurants, beaches and shopping.
Importantly, the nationally ranked JFK hospital is within two minutes of Atlantis and there's every kind of medical practice in the shadow of the hospital. Costco and Publix and a variety of dining and shopping options are within 5-10 minutes. The Boynton Beach Mall including a 14 screen movie theater is a 10 minute drive.
