With its sensational courtyard and non-stop ocean and island views, this Carbon Beach contemporary classic is both sophisticated and serene. The street entry door opens into a luminous enclosed and mostly-covered courtyard with rich, colorful tilework on the floor and walls. With seating and a heater, the space is welcoming and large enough for entertaining. Doors from the courtyard open to a pod-style elevator, an outdoor shower, beach access, and the front door. The home’s main living area, which comprises living, dining, and kitchen, looks out on dramatic ocean views through a vanishing wall of glass. Highlights include wood floors, fireplace, and a wet bar behind French doors. Just outside is a partially covered oceanfront balcony, with a built-in Jacuzzi and ample room for al fresco dining and relaxation. The kitchen, offset by a pair of handsome wood columns, has two islands, stone countertops, quality appliances, including a see-through refrigerator, and a built-in lounge area with another fireplace. A bathroom completes the main floor. The staircase to the second floor is topped with a pyramid skylight. On the upper level, three en-suite bedrooms include the owner’s suite, a spacious ocean-view sanctuary with fireplace, a full-width ocean-view balcony, custom closet, and a luxurious spa-style bath. The elevator accesses another of the bedrooms. Also on this level is a mirrored gym. In addition to air conditioning, tankless hot water, and automated window shades, the home’s second garage has been turned into a carpeted work space and laundry room, with built-in cabinets. This Carbon Beach home has everything you need for beachfront elegance and comfort.
