Sublime water views welcome you to the Summer of 2015 in this architect-designed, 2004-built contemporary. A wrap-around deck and walls of windows bring the outdoors in. The expansive, open floor plan makes the perfect venue for entertaining. The professional-grade kitchen features two ovens, Viking appliances, gas cook-top, and a large island. The kitchen opens to dining and living rooms, with fireplaces at both ends of the home. The dramatic center of the house features a double-height ceiling, with windows above. The focal point is a sculptural double-helix stairway that leads to two bedrooms, each with its own full bath and private balcony with French doors. Do you dream of your toes in the sand outside your own house? Cocktails on the deck as you watch boats drift by? A private hot tub on the beach? This unique property has all this and more.
