Luxury Living: Journey's End
Who doesn't like to lounge by the pool while on vacation.Well in tonight's Luxury Living report, Shireen Sandoval takes us to a home where you don't need to leave home to get that resort style atmosphere.
(WSVN) -- At every turn of this Coral Gables estate, you'll run into water.
It all starts in the front of the house, where you drive up, past a huge Banyan tree, towards the fountain.
But wind your way to the back of the house, and there's not just one, but at least three waterfalls.
Shelton Realtors Teresita Shelton says, "It's really a resort setting, and it's very large, very pretty, very inviting."
The biggest waterfall gushes into the resort style pool.
Here you can walk over the magnificent bridge or take a dip in either the pool or the Jacuzzi.
Then try drying off in the cabana, which has its' own kitchen and dining area.
And speaking of dining areas, there are two outdoors and another three indoors.
Teresita says, "It's really for casual living as well as if you want to have a magnificent party entertain 500 people you can do that here."
But don't expect to get in if you're not on the guest list.
The 12,000 square foot home sits in Journey's End -- an ultra-exclusive and private Coral Gables community.
Teresita says, "There are only about, less than 20 homes in here, but if the guard at the gate doesn't have your name, you're not in."
And it's worth getting on the list.
Just check out this home - it has seven bedrooms...
And two, half baths.
Teresita says, "This house was built initially in 1999 and in 2002 and 2003, they really put a lot of effort in developing the beautiful acreage."
When the family's not relaxing by the pool, they really know how to entertain.
Watch a movie in the 12-seat home theatre...
Smoke a stogie in the cigar room.
Play a game of pool.
Work your abs in the exercise room.
Or kick up your heels in the home's very own salsa room.
Teresita says, "They even have a room that's a dance room. When they have small gatherings, if you want to hear music and you feel like dancing you don't have to move the furniture around. It definitely is luxury living."
The house is for sale for $9.9 million dollars.
