Derek and Lisa Vander Ploeg, an architect and interior designer who head the prominent Boca Raton firms of Vander Ploeg & Associates and its complement, VPA Interior Design, have listed "Dos Lunas," their Boca Raton estate, for $4.875 million. The estate was painstakingly created as a labor of love, this striking masterwork draws its inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright, who espoused the philosophy of organic architecture designed as a cohesive whole in harmony with the natural environment. With no detail overlooked and no expense spared, the estate was completed in 2006 after a three-year design and construction process. "Dos Lunas" takes shape in a sublime architectural scheme echoing the moon, which continues outdoors in the curves of the tiered waterview terraces, infinity-edge pool, and even the dock on the Intracoastal Waterway. The estate is a quiet cul-du-sac located on a point on the Intracoastal Waterway with over 125' of waterfront.
Dos Lunas was built with a blend of simplicity and richness, artistry and function, openness and shelter, the overall effect sets a calm Zen-like mood throughout. The home offers 4 bedrooms and 6 full bathrooms spanning 7,062 SF. Almost all of the design elements have been custom-crafted for the residence including the furnishings, moldings, and doors with even the staircase and fireplaces fashioned as unique sculptural works of art. Well-flowing living spaces are featured along with a chef's dream kitchen and a serene master suite ensconced in a private wing. The home was designed to connect the indoors and outdoors with Noce travertine floors and the beach-hued sandstone wall tiles that adorn the interior living areas and the façade. Outside features elegant gardens, infinity pool, and 125' of waterfront.
