An oceanfront villa and tropical resort compound, this remarkable architectural estate commands gorgeous ocean views from an ultra-private bluff above Paradise Cove. More than 2.5 acres of landscaped beauty, exquisite design, and walls of glass create a majestic setting for lavish indoor-outdoor entertaining and a lifestyle of sublime comfort. Complete with a tennis court, pool, private beach, gym, billiards room, movie theatre, wine cellar, and four private guest apartments, this is a truly impressive and magnificent residence.
From the elegant front gates, a long lighted drive meanders through groves of palms, eucalyptus, bamboo, and sculpture gardens, past two enticing tree houses connected by a suspended foot bridge, past the north-south lighted tennis court with a shady pavilion, an outdoor dining area, and a subterranean garage with room for eight or more vehicles, past the enormous mirrored gym with premium equipment, past ponds, and fountains, to arrive at the huge central motor court between the home’s wide, backswept wings.
At the entry, flanked by fountains and pools, two stories of glass offer a tantalizing preview of the grand foyer, with its skylight tower and shimmering 18-foot, floor-to-ceiling crystal chandelier suspended through a sweeping circular staircase with etched glass panels. Across the foyer is the grand and stunning living/dining/bar room, with deep tray ceilings, a dramatic chandelier over the dining table, and wraparound glass that opens from the prow-like living room to the spacious ocean-view deck with room for dining and lounging and views over the pool, gardens, and ocean. Luminous, all-white interiors contribute to a feeling of luxurious tranquility.
Off the dining room is the absolutely sensational professional kitchen, with black floors, an enormous hanging pot rack over a large Nano glass island with bar seating, extensive counter and storage space, professional appliances, stainless cabinets, a butler’s pantry, and an elevator for service to the lower level.
On the east wing of the home’s main floor, beyond the kitchen, is a powder room, a laundry room, and a playroom with a mirrored wall, ballet barre, mounted TV and sound system, and en-suite bathroom.
On the west wing of the home’s main floor are another powder room, an en-suite bedroom with a private balcony, and an en-suite office, which opens to the ocean-view wraparound balcony and could serve as an additional bedroom.
With enormous windows facing both the front and the back of the house, the light-filled upper floor is home to the sumptuous owner’s suite, two additional en-suite bedrooms, and one of the four apartments. The owner’s suite, with the dynamic prow shape of the living room below, has a sitting area, wraparound floor-to-ceiling windows, and a wraparound balcony with a dining area facing onto the pool, treetops, and ocean views. The gorgeous bath has a skylight, dual fixtures, and a 15-head shower. The closet is a suite in itself, with two generous sections, built-ins, illuminated shelves, mirrored vanity, and doors to a private ocean view balcony.
The apartment on the east wing of the upper level is separated from the main living areas by a walkway and features a living room, kitchenette, bedroom and full bath. Beyond the apartment is an open patio/deck area with a dining table.
At the bottom of the central staircase, the home’s lower level mirrors the layout of the main floor. A spacious living/sitting room, with a wet bar and a kitchenette, has a prow-shaped glass wall facing onto the pool and expansive pool deck. In one corner of the lower floor is an opulent 20-seat movie theatre with a large screen, Dolby sound, and a separate projection room. Also on this level are two en-suite bedrooms, a billiards room, and a second kitchen with a walk-in refrigerator and substantial storage. There is also a powder room and a full bathroom.
Off the garage is a second, larger, laundry room, a temperature-controlled wine cellar, and an industrial kitchen for large-scale entertaining, complete with a 10-burner Vulcan range. A pathway from the garage leads to another apartment, which also has a sitting area, kitchenette, bedroom and full bath. A third apartment is located along the driveway that leads down to the beach. The fourth and largest apartment is located down a set of stairs off the backyard. It has a living room, dining area, kitchenette, two en-suite bedrooms, and an additional bathroom.
The backyard, with its prow-shaped infinity pool, fire pit, well-equipped outdoor kitchen, and huge pool deck, faces onto the ocean and island views. At the side of the property, a gated beach road, landscaped and lighted, passes by a private playground, a stone path leading to another outdoor living/dining area, and a lighted two-tier beach patio with gorgeous ocean views, lounge chairs, dining table, and a counter with a sink and mini-fridge. A staircase leads down to the sand and a private Paradise Cove beach cabana with day beds and lounge seating. The home and grounds are beautifully landscaped and lighted, with smart-home technology, security cameras, and generous amounts of guest parking.
This is a compound of rare quality, enchanting beauty, and singular architectural integrity.
