In a world-class resort community, this architecturally significant oceanfront residence, complete with separate guest house, is ensconced in a lushly private sanctuary.
Inspired by its exquisite Orchid Island beachside setting, this striking oceanfront estate is a paragon of architectural design in harmony with the natural environment. Verdant tropical flora secludes the six-bedroom residence, built in 2005, approached by a winding drive on sweeping grounds fronting 166± feet on the ocean. Architects Garcia Brenner Stromberg have brilliantly designed the three-level floor-plan in spacious wings that echo the gentle contours of the landscape and expand in a natural flow of space while capitalizing on the breathtaking ocean vistas. The exceptional construction is by esteemed, Vero Beach-based Proctor Construction Company along with Scales Building Corporation. Beautiful natural finishes create a rich interplay of textures throughout the warmly inviting rooms styled by Mary Washer Designs.
Comfort and privacy are enhanced in the thoughtful layout featuring a separate bedroom wing on the main level, plus a serene master suite encompassing the entire upper floor. Indoor/outdoor entertaining is the focus of the ground-level game room opening by the pool, cabana/guest suite, and dune walkway in an enchanting garden landscape by Meg Whitmer of Collective Designs. A separate guest house and garages for six cars bring this utterly unique oceanfront estate to its perfect completion.
