Once you step beyond the fully disappearing glass walls, to the ocean-facing terraces overlooking the surf and sand, you enter an environment of beach-front living to rival the best resorts in the world. With this home’s brilliant panorama of the blue Pacific and direct beach access, a more sublime surf-front oasis would be a challenge to discover. Art and artifacts, foliage and fossils – ancient and modern intersect to make this Balinese-style beach-front home arguably the most desirable property along The Strand. With more than 9,800 square feet of living space on three levels, the home grants seamless transition from indoor to outdoor spaces so ocean breezes can mix nonchalantly with heirlooms and architecture that enrich the home with a sense of understated sophistication and South Pacific ease. Renown architect Chris Light’s inventive approach to layout and design offer up a visual feast of inspiration and style starting curbside with its Jerusalem Limestone and Mahogany-trimmed exterior framing a secured courtyard entry with bronze “Buddha Hands” gate-pulls. The two-story foyer, with its mystical light fixture, unfolds to the main living areas and ocean-view office. The enchanting master suite, with dual bathrooms, opens to its private deck and panoramic ocean surf views – taking full advantage of the magnificent sunsets. Three additional bedroom suites and lounge are on the upper level. The lower level is an entertainment mecca – containing a wine area with 300-bottle display wall, movie area with full surround sound, fully-equipped bar, gym, sauna, steam shower, lounge seating area, powder room, and two outdoor living areas. The main-level open floor plan – blending dining, living, and entertaining areas – offers open access to the chef’s kitchen with its six-burner stove in front of a stunning blue onyx wall, separate full-sized refrigerator and freezer, double cooking islands, and is fully equipped with all imaginable amenities. Among the home’s distinctive features are mother of pearl tile walls, Limestone finishes, custom Mahogany trim and woodwork, Walnut plank flooring, woven bamboo ceilings, stainless steel beam accents, radiant heated floors, and Venetian plaster walls. Included in the outdoor space of this resort world are an infinity-edge swimming pool, spa, three fire pits, waterfall, direct beach access, beach shower, two outdoor lower-level lounge areas, and separate dog run and kids’ play area. Beyond the blend of organic elements lies a sophisticated backbone of integrated technology for convenient monitoring of the whole-house security, lighting, environment, and audio/visual systems of this exotic and refined ocean surf home.
