The stylish and contemporary design of this oceanfront home epitomizes seaside living at its most sophisticated. Set on the sands of a stunning two-mile beach in the private, gated community of The Strand, this personal resort affords every luxury for which one could wish. Renowned architect Ed Lohrbach’s welcoming 7,852 square foot design exhibits his uncommon and deft restraint. Refreshingly unexpected, the architecture creates unique spaces that are at one with the oceanfront setting. 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 an oceanfront swimming pool with adjacent cabana – both sure to be regular destinations throughout the year. 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 a decade.
