Dwell: Lucky Leap Year: A Sun-Drenched Penthouse Listed for Auction

A sun-drenched jewel situated at the southernmost tip of the Gulf of Mexico, Belize at Cape Marco is going to auction without reserve on Leap Year Day, Feb 29, 2020. This home is the essence of fine living and breath-taking natural beauty. It is a furnished, 23rd floor, five-bedroom penthouse offering picturesque views of the uninhabited Ten Thousand Islands and miles upon miles of pristine, white sandy beaches from virtually all six private terraces. This property is truly divine and offers a peaceful escape from the pressures of daily life.

Inside the nearly 6,000 square-foot, ultra-custom penthouse, the attention to detail is unmistakable. Luxurious custom marble flooring, architecturally designed columns, hidden storage, backlit onyx countertops, hand-crafted medallions, wine chillers, artisan etched glass shower door enclosures and a master suite sauna are just a few of the many upgrades. 

Enter from your private elevator and you’ll see the incredible viewpoints from all six terraces. With fine detailing such as high-tech surround sound, exquisite lighting and custom cabinetry, this property is a rare gem. 

A kitchen worthy of a chef features two refrigerator drawers within the kitchen island, hidden doors, a built-in espresso machine for the coffee lover, a warming drawer, two dishwashers, a gas stove and an additional prep sink. Whether enjoying a private chef-prepared meal or hosting a dinner party for the holidays, this kitchen surely does impress. For the perfect wind down after a day in the sun, the 135 bottle wine cooler is a fabulous entertainer’s touch for transitioning into the living room for a relaxing evening and endless sunset views.

Within the master suite, the detail continues to shine. From built in reading lights to pressure sensors activating the lights to the bathroom, to the walk in custom closets, sauna and sitting area, one can enjoy the privacy of a beautiful designed room, and yet another jaw dropping balcony.

While hosting family and friends, the family room’s custom finishes and private balcony creates a seamless and private space for guests to enjoy. Within the den, the additional balcony allows for connection to the outdoors with panoramic views of endless blue. Within the community, the prestigious Belize at Cape Marco offers an opulent lobby and features a community room, library, theater, private beach access, tennis, fitness center, sauna and more. Living here offers the tropical ambiance and idyllic lifestyle Marco Island has to offer.
