Gated and private, this rare architectural residence was custom-designed by Frank Israel on a beautifully landscaped property of more than an acre. With dramatic angles inside and out, it makes exquisite use of glass, high and multi-level ceilings, exposed beams, recessed and soffit lighting, expansive skylights, exquisite cabinetry, Brazilian hardwood floors, and an open plan with spaces that function as discreet rooms, but offer unimpeded indoor-outdoor flow for entertaining and daily living. A long path leads to the front entrance by way of a patio area. A pivoting front door opens into a foyer and the formal living room with fireplace and a wall of windows and large, disappearing glass doors to the back yard. Every room has huge windows, including the formal dining room. The stunning gourmet kitchen has a large wood-top island, professional appliances, and views into the pool courtyard. Just beyond the kitchen is a family/media room with floor-to-ceiling windows and sliders to the pool deck. These main living areas are set along an axis, with a bedroom wing at each end. One wing includes the master suite, itself a modernist sculpture of glass, steel, and wood, with a high wood-beam ceiling, raised fireplace, custom shelves and cabinets, and glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows offering access to the pool courtyard on one side and an ocean view patio on the other. This dramatic retreat includes a luxurious bath with dual vanities, make-up desk, huge custom finished walk-in closet, and a large in-floor jet tub in a separate room with shower and skylights. Two additional sun-filled en-suite bedrooms complete this wing. At the opposite end of the house, the second wing has two more en-suite bedrooms, a laundry room, and a bonus/bedroom/office with a half-bath just outside. On the upper level, designed to take in views of the pool courtyard and the ocean, is a large office with a wide built-in desk and cabinets. The beautifully landscaped backyard features a lap pool, multiple dining and sitting areas including a large raised wood platform with built-in seating, raised planters, and trails that meander around the property among gorgeous, mature trees, and low, view-enhancing plantings. There is also an outdoor shower on a cement/wood platform. At the entrance, there is a three-car garage plus guest parking. Featured in Architectural Digest and lauded for its unique color, form, and flow, this is an exceptional residence of rare pedigree and quality.
