This amazing contemporary estate hit the market right after it was completed in 2008 at $29,000,000. The property offers expansive walls of glass which showcase breathtaking views of the gently curving sandy beach at Padaro Lane along with lushly landscaped gardens shaded by huge eucalyptus, oak and cypress trees.
Entry to this sophisticated awe inspiring home is from a long gated driveway lined with mature coral and eucalyptus trees alongside a new clay tennis court with lights. Upon entry, you are drawn into widening views of sand and surf as rooms unfold to stunning views. Elegant white oak floors and windows framing ocean views provide an elegant palette for exquisite art and fine furnishings.
The entry level offers a private bedroom opening to an interior courtyard, a great room that encompasses a step up living room with windows above the sand, a comfortable dining area next to the outside entertainment deck along the beach, and a chef’s kitchen with every amenity, as well as a two bedroom wing with access to the outside for walks on the beach. The upper level is reminiscent of a New York style loft with huge gallery like space and rooms with no beginning and no end. You move from a light filled office with large picture windows framing the coral trees at the entrance and an intimate second level private sun deck with fireplace to the closet area (without enclosures) to the bathroom with its fireplace and large glass shower overlooking the beach and finally to the spacious master bedroom itself. All rooms are one.
In addition to the main residence of 5900 + square feet, the property offers a detached guest house of 800 + square feet which has a wonderful courtside living room for television, games or relaxed conversation, two bathrooms and a room filled with four glorious wood framed bunk beds. This home is to be lived in with awe at the union of the outdoors and indoors; you can “have it all” in this masterful expression of open space and luxurious interiors.
