Located in the prestigious gated Colony 1 community, this elegant beach home sits above a private, tree-lined lot and a short walk down a private path to the beach. A wall of floor-to-ceiling windows, and a vaulted ceiling bring light and space to the newly carpeted living and dining area in a reverse floor plan to take advantage of the white water and sand views. Outside, a deck overlooks the ocean through a grove of majestic trees, accessible from either the living or dining rooms through their own sets of French doors. Inside, a partial wall holding a brick-lined gas fireplace connects the two rooms.

The light-filled kitchen has hardwood floors, sleek new stainless steel appliances, tiled counters, and white cabinets that pick up more light and angles from the skylights and exposed beams above. An informal dining area is at one end of the kitchen space. A carpeted second bedroom and remodeled bath complete the upstairs layout.

An open hallway connects a light-filled den, sitting or office area tucked under the vaulted ceiling and exposed beam, but with plenty of light from its own windows and those of the living and kitchen space below, which it overlooks.

The master bedroom on the ground floor has more floor-to-ceiling windows, French doors to a private patio overlooking the Eucalyptus grove and coastline viewed from the dining room, and a built-in corner fireplace to add cozy warmth on cool days. The master bath features a Jacuzzi tub surrounded by tile and with its own view window and recessed lighting. Countertops, cabinetry, double sinks, new lighting fixtures, and a separate glassed-in shower add to the modern, spa-like ambiance.

Every wall and window in this home has been custom-designed to take full advantage of natural light, beautiful views, and the home’s private corner setting. It includes an attached 2 car garage and visitor parking. Inside, the thoughtful layout mixes spaces for easy entertaining with private retreats for peace and quiet. Close to the beach and the convenience of Aptos & Seascape, but private and serene ⎯ it’s the best of both worlds.
