1818 N Lake Shore Dr

Set in Oyster Bay Estates and remarkable in every way is Villa Lidia, a stunning example of architectural mastery and creatively imagined by acclaimed architect Thorning Little. Impressive in both indoor and outdoor living space as well as its classic Italianate design elements, this four-bedroom estate features 6,000 sq ft of refined living. Surrounding the saltwater pool/spa is an elaborate veranda with beautiful arches supported by imported Italian limestone pillars. A Gabion rock wall runs the perimeter of the property for complete privacy. Meander through lush grounds of Royal palms, Italian cypress, expansive stone patios and delightful pergola. The expansive 2,000 sq ft covered outdoor dining area with full kitchen, gas fireplace and jeweled chandelier offering a memorable area for entertaining. The living/dining room feature a dramatic 22-ft. ceiling with floor-to-ceiling fireplace, clerestory windows and ornate ceiling accents. Light cascades into the kitchen where no detail has been overlooked. The richly-appointed library/office provides an aristocratic atmosphere with its box beam ceiling and the state-of-the-art media room provides the ultimate social experience. New wood floors, soaring archways and niches, a lavish powder bath, a family room adjoining the kitchen, renovated master, elevator, motor court with fountain, a 3-car garage, and smart-home features such as 7.2 kW solar array, and a 13 kw gas generator. A work of art that’s best appreciated leisurely and in person.
