Located on the edge of Florida’s Broward County, in a community adjacent to the Everglades, this estate is among the most desirable in the city of Weston’s exclusive Saddle Club neighborhood. Located on a 3.8-acre lot—one of the largest in Weston—the 14,294-square-foot home has 10 bedrooms and 9 1/2 bathrooms, making it ideal for large, active families, and plenty of houseguests as well.

A winding drive passes manicured landscaping to arrive at the sprawling residence, complete with a welcoming porte-cochère. Stepping inside the double doors reveals soaring two-story tall ceilings, glistening columns, gleaming marble floors, and a huge living room accented by a massive fireplace, with direct access to the pool area beyond.

The kitchen is sized and equipped to create meals for large groups and is accented by a marble countertop with a subway tile backsplash. A sliding door leads to the formal dining room with seating for 12. This area is accented by gleaming chandeliers, an artistically detailed ceiling, and views of the grounds.

The home has resort-quality amenities. A game room featuring wood flooring, more glittering columns, and an intricately decorated ceiling is equipped with a game table that seats 10, a pool table, a fireplace, and a full-size bar. If the kids or guests are seeking a more active afternoon, a full-size indoor basketball court awaits, with a well-equipped gym adjacent, set behind glass walls as protection from errant basketballs.
