Perched on Birdview bluff above scenic Westward Beach, this light-filled contemporary residence has the amenities of a vacation resort and the deeply rewarding comforts of home. Commanding sweeping ocean and island views, the approximately 0.57-acre property is richly landscaped and terraced, with balconies, decks, and patios.
From the gated entry, the long drive passes a tennis court with stadium lighting and a swimming pool and spa in a very private garden setting with a wide flagstone pool deck for lounging. The drive ends in a motor court with ample guest parking, and the home opens to reveal breathtaking ocean views from a stunning great room.
With cathedral ceilings, a corner fireplace, a window seat, beautiful wood floors, and handsome built-ins, the great room has expansive ocean-view windows and glass doors that slide away to provide seamless access to the wraparound deck for al fresco dining and entertaining.
A lovely dining area shares the views, and the professional chef’s kitchen is just beyond, featuring an island with bar seating, marble countertops, a beverage cooler, quality appliances, and a wide garden-view window above the sink. Off the kitchen is a mud room with a door to the side garden where there is a water feature and an outdoor shower. Also on the entry-level are two bedrooms, a full bath, and a powder room.
Steps near the front door lead down to the ocean-view primary suite, which occupies the entire lower level. This private haven has a sitting area with a fireplace, a walk-in closet, generous built-ins, and a wall of glass opening onto a partially shaded patio and gorgeous ocean views. The primary bath, which also has ocean views, has a door to the backyard as well as access to an additional storage/closet/laundry room.
On the ocean side of the house, the backyard provides numerous options for entertaining and relaxation, with a large flagstone patio, a lawn, a firepit area with seating surrounded by a mature succulent garden, and a deck with sitting areas that overlook the beach, the waves, and views to the horizon.
The home has central air conditioning, a two-car garage, outdoor irrigation, and a full complement of smart-home features, including automated window shades, Sonos sound, and security. This is an estate of exceptional quality and comfort.
