This one-of-a-kind ocean view contemporary built in 2008 captures the essence of Balinese charm with bold modern architecture, stunning Pacific Ocean, Channel Island and Butterfly Beach views, extensive indoor-outdoor living areas, expansive rooms and plantation-style ceilings. The main home is approximately 5,198 sq. ft. with 4-bedrooms and 5-1/2-baths. Located on Channel Drive on approximately 1.13 acres, this rare trophy property features an inverted floor plan positioning the main living areas on the highest floor to maximize the long, unobstructed ocean, island and harbor views and prevailing ocean breezes from this elevated perspective, while creating dramatic vaulted living areas, including the grand living room open to the dining area and gourmet kitchen with breakfast alcove. Massive floor-to-ceiling disappearing sliding-glass doors expand the living area creating a seamless transition to a large wrap-around limestone entertainment deck complete with an outdoor kitchen, fire pit, and glass deck panels. The treasured view is also seen from the upstairs master bedroom suite complete with a luxurious master bath and access to a private outdoor terrace.

The first level is centered on a large family room foyer with fireplace that takes advantage of massive floor-to-ceiling sliding-glass doors that open to a covered loggia and second entertainment patio with a large outdoor gourmet kitchen, and view of the luxe oversized pool and spa with limestone patio and covered loggia.
