1235 Ocean Front
Uniquely positioned atop a rock ledge at Brooks Street Beach, this captivating contemporary residence allows its inhabitants to feel one-with-the-sea as walls of windows reveal waves lapping at the shore below. Designed by Horst Architects with enhancements by Brion Jeanette, the 2-br, 3-ba estate exudes a modern sophistication born from its clean lines, creative use of accent lighting, and thoughtful mix of materials including limestone, naturally weathered woods, steel, stucco, and glass. A 3-story floating staircase dually serves as a focal point and light well that fosters a sense of continuity between each level, while a 3-stop elevator delivers desired convenience. Fit with sleek European cabinets in harmonious white and gray tones, the kitchen is as stunning as it is functional, providing 2 sinks, premium appliances, and large island ideal for entertaining. A large ocean-facing balcony, art niches, and underlit hearth are additional features that elevate the luxe space. The top level of the home is graced by the master suite featuring private balcony, walk-in closet, and spa-bath with a backdrop of panoramic views. Designed for versatility, the lower level can serve as second bedroom or living space, complete with a full bath, private entrance, and balcony. A two-car garage, designated laundry room, and location close to shops, restaurants and entertainment further complement the extraordinary lifestyle afforded by this chic beachfront estate.
