Driving down the lane that brings you to this home, you already get the feeling that you are in for something special. Looking to your left you see glimpses of the ocean. The main house is directly in front of you, and then to the right you see more little window views of the ocean through the forest. Nothing, however, can prepare you for the vast view of the ocean that you see from the living room and decks once you enter the house, from the white water coastline to the horizon in a wide arc of infinite beauty. It is this setting that sets the home apart as a jewel in paradise.
You enter either through the one-car garage or the garden courtyard. Guests staying in the second bedroom can come and go without disturbing anyone else. If you go in the main entrance, you will walk through big wood gates into the landscaped garden and then right through the house to that incredible view.
The home itself was created with old world charm, different from any other design in the area. In place of predictable boxes and rectangles, it uses imaginative spaces and a round tower to provide lookouts, reading nooks, bedrooms and living areas. The open kitchen/dining/living area provides a classic space to entertain or curl up with a good movie, or opens fully across the front to the sound of the surf and the colors of the sky and ocean when you want to remove the barrier between the inside of the home and the world around it.
Although there is a small, unobtrusive guest bedroom in the home, the master suite is the main attraction with its large closet, en suite bathroom, and tower where you can climb to a second floor personal space with those same amazing views and total privacy. Imagine yourself painting a landscape, writing a novel or penning a poem – your muse will be there waiting for you and your interests.
The front porch and a stunning deck take you right out over the coastline’s crashing waves. You will spend many an hour there with friends and cool drinks, enchanted by the sounds and the sights. A second 2-story home on the property offers guest accommodations separate from the main house. The upper floor has a full kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. The lower floor has a bedroom and its own bathroom. Both floors have decks with vast views of the surrounding forest and nice views of the ocean.
Although this could be the beginning of your story here, it would not be the end. With 19 acres of hilly jungle around you, there is ample room to create an upscale hotel, a retreat center, a community of cabinas, or other possibilities. There is also plenty of room for your imagination in the existing homes as you add your own ideas and touches.
