Offering Tonnta Mara (Sea Waves), completed in 2011 by Donald Zacker (Architect) and DL Miner (Builder). This is a top-of-the-line, state- of-the-art gem just five homes from the beach with ocean views on two decks unobstructed by any utility poles on the block. The professionally designed, decorated and furnished three-story masterpiece features the finest finishes, craftsmanship and electronics, including a 27 panel solar array on the composite slate roof with at-the-market sales to the electricity grid (providing a monthly check to the homeowner). Ralph Lauren Joshua Tree furnishings, drapes, and wallpaper adorn the bespoke interior. The third floor master bath and bedroom features a large Carrera marble shower with oversized Kohler rainhead and body sprays, heated towel rack and separate designer soaking tub alongside his and her Kohler sinks. All of the counters in the home are double- thick marble or granite; all of the doors are solid mahogany; and all of the floors are hardwood. The master suite also features a walk-in closet with a second full-sized washer/dryer set and a separate private office with mini-fridge. Third floor sliders open to a wrap-around Ipe (Brazilian Walnut) deck with panoramic views, lounging areas, and a spiral staircase to the second floor deck. The second floor boasts a Chef's Kitchen with Wolf range and microwave, warming drawer, Bosch dishwasher, Sub-Zero glass-front refrigerator and separate ice machine. The granite breakfast counter looks out to a living and dining area with vaulted ceilings, oversized windows, a large stone gas fireplace and breathtaking ocean views. Wall-to-wall sliders open to a large wrap-around Ipe deck with dedicated outdoor gas grill and Royal Teak dining and lounging furniture. Two bedrooms-one en-suite and one next to the handsome full marble bath (both with custom vanities and mini-fridges)-finish the second floor. Three additional bedrooms and two full baths anchor the first floor. Two front bedrooms share a gorgeous bath with solid wood pocket door and a custom vanity. Sliders also open to a private front deck. Down the hall is a laundry/utility room with side entrance followed by another full bath with combination soaking tub and shower across from the third bedroom. A comfortable rear family room features another gas fireplace, granite wet bar, Bosch dishwasher, mini-fridge, TV and electronics closet. Sliders open to another Ipe deck and Ipe patio that wraps around the heated pool, complemented on one side by a stone waterfall. A cabana features an outdoor wet bar with ice maker, ice cream freezer, poolside television and separate storage for the solar panel system and beach gear. A finely-crafted outdoor shower is along one side of the home while a four car driveway abuts the other side. Sold partially furnished. Appointment required.
