This gorgeous Point Dume Spanish villa, complete with a Riviera 3 beach key, sits behind gates in an exceptionally private garden sanctuary of approximately 1.6 acres. With a combination of elegance and warmth, every room is artfully detailed for beauty and comfort with custom finishes such as high, exposed-beam ceilings, hardwood and Saltillo tile floors, and exquisite tilework. The two-story residence is surrounded by lush grounds, fruit and mature trees, a large lawn, and numerous patios for al fresco dining for intimate or grand-scale gatherings. The serene living room, with a large fireplace and a wall of garden-view picture windows, flows into the chandelier dining room, with a deep tray ceiling, and built-in cabinets. The gourmet country kitchen has a high, sloped, and beamed ceiling with a skylight, walnut hardwood floors, high-end appliances, a large butcher block island, copper countertops, a breakfast area, and wonderful tilework. The family room has a rustic stone fireplace and French doors that open to a shaded portico and an outdoor dining area. The central staircase, with handcrafted tiled risers, leads to an ocean-view owner’s suite that features a vaulted ceiling, wraparound windows, a raised fireplace, seating area, wide-plank walnut wood floors, a private balcony, and a luxurious bath. On the first floor are two en-suite bedrooms, one with a large sitting room, plus an office that could be a fourth, and guest bathroom with clawfoot tub. The estate’s grounds include a resort-style waterfall pool and Jacuzzi®, and a large motor courtyard with room for guest parking. This is a compound of rare beauty and quality in a private setting.
