This contemporary home, remodeled by award-winning Green architect Stephanie Barnes-Castro, rises gracefully from tropical landscaping, its many angles and windows gradually coming into view. A slate walkway connects a whimsical gate whose block pattern is echoed in a distinctive metal front door.
Inside, custom doors and windows throughout the house continue the squares and rectangles, letting in light, greenery from the private backyard, and ocean views. Gleaming oak wood floors connect the elegant, light-filled living and dining areas. The kitchen features a blend of surfaces, all working together to lend a comfortable yet unique look to this heart of the home: poured concrete and Quartzite countertops, warm maple cabinetry, cork chessboard floor tiles and a cozy breakfast nook. A separate family room with angled walls and rows of custom windows looks out on the private backyard. Like many of the house’s rooms, the family room’s banks of windows cross two walls to meet in a corner, making the walls seem to disappear.
The three bedrooms feature wood floors, distinctive lighting, and custom windows. A staircase with metal, nautical-style railings leads upstairs to the master suite which includes a view nook, separate office or den, master bedroom, walk in closet and bath with Bamboo floors and squares and rectangles of windows and doors. The nook with ocean views hold a built-in reading bench, perfect for gazing out at the ocean beyond – with a door to the view porch. Enhanced by the curved wall that gracefully turns from the stairs there is an office/den with ocean views. High ceilings, rows of smaller windows nestled beneath them, and ceiling fan, give the upstairs master bedroom an airy, light feel. The luxurious master bath has glass block windows, a glass-enclosed glass tiled shower, poured concrete and glass tile tub, Bamboo floors, maple cabinets and dual sinks.
Across the garden and its pergola, surrounded by tress and shrubs, a separate art studio or gym structure features an angled wooden ceiling with exposed beams and its own share of windows, looking back across the garden at the main house’s distinctive windows and angles.
Upgrades include solar panels, radiant heaters, sustainable finishes, integrated speakers, and a security system.
Inside and out, this home’s windows and views make the most of its stunning natural setting, while its surfaces and structure protect the environment we all share.
