Florida Mansion With Butterfly Sanctuary Lists for $14 Million

A staycation-worthy estate in Florida—complete with a custom-made trampoline and a butterfly sanctuary—has hit the market for $14 million. 
Sitting on about 1.5 acres in Weston, Florida, part of Broward County, the mansion has lake views and more than 12,000 square feet of interior living space, according to Senada Adžem of Douglas Elliman, who listed the property last week. 
“This home was inspired by some of the greatest resorts, including the Breakers hotel in Palm Beach,” she said. “The clients wanted to create their own staycation home, a place where you can really enjoy the indoors and outdoors and feel like you never have to leave.”
A sanctuary for butterflies was created with plants such as Firebush, Lantanas and Texas Sage, which attract monarchs, rice paper butterflies and other species to the property and help them flourish. The family has made space in the area for reading and hanging out, the agent added. 
Other outdoor amenities include air-conditioned loggias, a basketball court and a custom-made trampoline large enough to require its own irrigation system, Ms. Adžem noted. There’s also an indoor-outdoor game room and a pool with water and fire features. 

Inside, the seven-bedroom, eight-full-bathroom residence boasts a clean, sleek design. The great room features floor-to-ceiling windows and retractable doors, plus Turkish Carrara marble flooring, and there’s a custom chef’s kitchen, according to the listing.  
The primary bedroom suite has a fireplace, a seating area that opens to the outside, a breakfast bar, a large dressing room and a bathroom with a soaking tub and two vanities, listing photos show.
