This serene beach house was artfully re-designed in 2015 by noted architect Gary Eliopoulos and renovated by renowned Seaside Builders practically from the ground up. With clean lines and superb finishes, seemingly endless ocean views from all major rooms, and a design focused on comfort, convenience and personal privacy, this bespoke beachside residence is the ultimate in laidback luxury living.
One expects such exceptional features and finishes as wide plank wood flooring, detailed volume ceilings, custom cabinetry and boutique-crafted closets in a bespoke property of this magnitude. Even so, it surprises and delights with such innovative features as its 1000+-bottle temperature controlled wine room, conference-room style executive oceanfront office complete with wet bar, and built-in granite-topped formal dining table with couch-style comfort seating.
No need goes unmet in a residence where there is a full kitchen, a laundry, a gas fireplace, and elevator access on every level. Double doors and a kitchen pass-through ensure well-served and undisturbed formal dining. A screened-in poolside loggia with summer kitchen/grilling station facilitates alfresco dining. An après beach outdoor shower and a full cabana bath facilitate comfort by ocean and pool. The beachfront terrace complete with fire pit promotes an over-arching sense of inner peace.
This residence is of a size that ensures personal space, with a plan that assures personal privacy, and built-in safeguards to support security and viability. Come what may, this walled, gated property on a coveted oceanfront lot offers a secure retreat for an uncertain time. One where space is luxurious, and the panoramic ocean views daily expand your perspective on what constitutes idyllic living.
