Walk out on to the sand from this stylish and contemporary oceanfront home in the private, gated community of The Strand. Epitomizing seaside living at its most sophisticated, the home is private, yet open to views, sounds, and sea breezes throughout. Renowned architect Ed Lohrbachs welcoming 7,852 square-foot design is refreshing, relaxed, and dramatic. The architecture creates unique spaces at one with the oceanfront setting as entire walls of glass disappear before your eyes. All the main living areas within the home open to massive seaside terraces. The main level is wrapped artistically around a resplendent, light-filled courtyard. Radiating from this core is a series of harmonious rooms that define California living while taking in dazzling vistas of the Pacific. The informal plan embraces beach living and accommodates the owners and their guests in great comfort. The wonderfully scaled interiors open to lavish terraces awash in sea breezes a perfect setting for al fresco dinners at sunset. Inside, a sumptuous master suite with distinguished appointments overlooks the ocean through walls of glass. It features a particularly decadent bath and dressing wing certain to impress. Outside, the seaside garden is graced by a very private oceanfront swimming pool with adjacent cabana both certain to be regular destinations throughout the year. The house has many thoughtful amenities including a garage for up to six cars, a professional grade media room, two catering kitchens in addition to the main kitchen (with one on the pool level), an infra-red sauna, Tesla batteries for back-up power, and a commercial six-passenger elevator. For buyers in search of a high style quotient with exceptional build quality, and who understand that restraint is the ultimate in refinement, this may be the best opportunity seen on this coast in many years.
