About this property
Spectacular oceanfront gem on a private beach in NSB, offers an otherworldly escape with unvarnished views of the ocean and the intercoastal. The residence itself, a singular architectural masterpiece, is situated on a promontory above the wide sands and magical dunes, making it one of the most distinguished waterfront homes in all Central FL. The residence combines its ethereal charm with real world state of the art amenities and comfort. The inspiration for the design came from the natural character and expression of the oceanfront site. The curving contour patterns left by waves on the sand, and the power and delicacy of the ocean are embodied in the exotic shape and poetic movements of the structure and detailing appointed with every possible imaginative amenity: a luxurious master suite, wet bar, theater room, 2 keystone fireplace and a full professional chefs' kitchen with custom imported cabinetry (England) and high-end stainless-steel appliances (Sub-Zero, Miele, Thermador). The interior is centered by a dramatic 4-story open travertine uninterrupted spiral stairway which leads to overlook lofts on all levels and to the roof terrace with panoramic views of the ocean to the east and river to the west. The curving roof structure is constructed of laminated beams with heavy timber wood decking and is clad with copper. Exterior railings and cabinetry are made of teak and stainless steel. Indigenous Florida Keystone, hand textured plaster, and large expanses of curving segmented butt-joined glass create a flow between the interior and exterior. The atmosphere in this Beach House is a stirring combination of California's gold coast, Southampton NY and Palm Beach; and if it were located in any of those locales, the price would be five times its market value in NSB, a charming beach town rooted in local culture, beachside activities through the year, festivals and parades, high-quality restaurants, boutique shopping, exquisite art and a beautiful, sandy shoreline.
