A fantastic feast for the senses, here you can savor the sights, sounds and scents of coastal living and the Atlantic, just a stone’s throw away. Artistic touches, quality craftsmanship and unique features throughout make this elegant contemporary a dream come true. The gourmet chef’s kitchen includes Zimbabwe honed granite countertops, cherry floors, (2) Wolf ovens, a drawer microwave and magic corner.

Ample living area and expansive outdoor space on this rare double lot allow for comfortable spacious entertaining whether you want to relax in the sun, enjoy the shade or gather around a warm fire.

Perfectly positioned to take in stunning sunrises and wonderful winter sunsets, enjoy spectacular views from almost every room 365 days a year.

The strategically positioned awning style windows provide dual exposure in each room, keep the rain out and capture fresh air and cross breezes both upstairs and down. Sip your morning coffee on the oceanside granite patio, read your favorite book from the porch swing overlooking the ocean or tend the garden surrounding the house.

Thoughtfully constructed to be effortless against the elements, virtually all systems have been updated or replaced. Every detail has been carefully selected to make coastal living that much easier; such as a cedar outdoor shower enclosure, mudroom with adjacent laundry allowing for easy cleanup after a day at the beach and state-of-the-art solar panels that generate more electricity than you may use all year long. An automatic propane generator provides further peace of mind.

Sought-after amenities at the beach include an attached oversized 1-car garage, large driveway providing parking for 7 and a basement offering clean and dry storage. Wherever you find yourself in this magnificent home, it’s truly a pleasure to be.
