This inspiring Emerald Bay luxury oceanfront residence represents the culmination of over a decade of design and construction to bring this sensational home to realization. The dramatic architecture of the 11,796 sq. ft. residence showcases windows the size of garage doors that retract completely so that you can walk right out onto the huge terraces suspended above the crashing surf below. The spectacular residence was designed to take full advantage of the exclusive views offered by the prestigious oceanfront setting of its unrivalled Emerald Bay beachfront location.
The exceptional residence features three great rooms for entertaining; two exterior dining terraces; a separate full-floor master suite 4 + ocean view bedroom suites; a professionally designed and equipped theater; a gym + full spa area w/ steam + treatment rooms; 10’-12’ ceilings; parking for 12 cars; a commercial elevator; and expansive retractable walls of glass that open to massive outdoor terraces on each level. A beach terrace just above the sand includes an infinity pool and spa with adjoining cabana while a set of private stairs descends to the picturesque beach below.
Architected with a generously scaled rooms and grandly proportioned spaces, this substantial contemporary-style residence captures views of the sparkling aqua waters of the cove below throughout its spectacular indoor/outdoor living environment. The tastefully appointed interiors are composed of luxurious materials in a primarily neutral palette of crèmes, tans, grays and whites that are eminently livable and lend themselves to relaxing days spent entertaining by the seaside with evocative style and glamour.
