Sleek and Secluded in Coral Gables

The modern marvel at 5245 Oak Lane, called Casa Glass Oaks, is sited on 1.25 tranquil acres within guard-gated Snapper Creek Lakes.

Nestled in one of Coral Gables’ most exclusive enclaves, this decked out new construction ticks off all of the boxes you want in a South Florida home. A premier location. Stylish and inviting architecture, with glass wall upon glass wall to welcome the outdoors in. The obligatory pool and outdoor kitchen. Complete privacy, emphasized by lush tropical landscaping. And last but not least, a cozy mix of sunny and shady hideaways to curl up with remote work or a good book.

Although brand new, this already timeless classic fits right in to its elegant surroundings. One of Florida’s first planned communities, Coral Gables is known for its tree-lined boulevards with a gracious mix of Spanish Renaissance and Mediterranean Revival mansions from decades gone by.

The home’s scale and proportions are quite generous: 10,835 square feet of interior space with eight bedrooms and nine bathrooms. There are two large living spaces for entertaining or just hanging out, both formal and casual dining areas, a media room, a modern home office, and dual primary bedroom suites with baronial walk-in closets and ensuites. Along with the pool and spa, amenities include a rooftop deck, a circular driveway, an elevator, an outdoor shower, and a three-car attached garage.

The design team behind the residence includes architect Felipe Alvaro, builder Hassan Jalali, and an interior designer team from Modplay Design. Details include a mix of ceramic tile and wide-plank hardwood floors, lots of glass sliders that open to private patios and outdoor spaces, dramatic chandeliers and lighting fixtures, cutting-edge finishes and hardware, and soaring ceilings, including double-height ones in many of the open-plan, big-volume living spaces.

If kitchens are the beating heart of a home, this one is triply blessed. There’s a Scavolini show kitchen with Gaggenau appliances, a separate tucked-away prep kitchen (caterers love this), and a stylish summer kitchen under cover out by the pool. The main, eat-in kitchen flows effortlessly into the family room, and both spaces have wide views of the pool and the outdoor dining and lounging areas.

Snapper Creek Lakes, established on the south side of Coral Gables in 1954, features waterfront access, two large lakes, minimum one-acre zoning, and white-glove amenities like a clubhouse and residents-only marina. Homeowners have easy proximity to vibrant Miami as well as the high-end restaurants, shopping and services in downtown Coral Gables.
