This ocean retreat is considered to be one of the East Coast’s finest and rarest jewels, and it is architecturally designed to cater to every occasion, whether you’re looking for a private getaway or for an elegant gathering of friends,” Desper said. “Live the life you’ve always wanted on this beautiful peninsula with captivating water views.”
Built in 2008, the nearly 9,000-square foot home, with six bedrooms, seven full and one half bathrooms, has extraordinary curb appeal. While just one block from the boardwalk, this astounding home is accessible by a private drive and offers one of the last deeded gazebos on Silver Lake. As you arrive at the home, you’ll be greeted by the home’s beachy cedar exterior, large windows and multiple terraces – set with the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean.
An elegant curved staircase leads you to the mahogany double front doors. Greet your guests in style in the large foyer with gleaming maple floors, double staircase and enticing views to other first-floor rooms. The home’s inviting layout is designed for elegant simplicity and coastal sophistication. The rooms are beach elegant, combining the mystic beauty of its natural surroundings with the soothing and soft color palette of the sea. The two-story family room has a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and is flooded with natural daylight. French doors open to an expansive ocean-facing deck, perfect for morning yoga, lunch or sunset cocktails.
The kitchen is spacious and expertly designed for the foodie in everyone with Wolf gas range, granite countertops, dual sinks and dishwashers, a large center island, smaller secondary island and beautiful hand-painted wall mural of the sea. The kitchen’s oval tray ceiling is illuminated and flanked by unique double chandeliers with a sea horse theme. Enjoy morning coffee or casual dining in the kitchen overlooking the majestic sea or open the doors for al fresco dining under the open sky.
Your family celebrations and dinner parties will be remembered in the dining room with its tall ceilings, conch shell themed chandelier and double doors that open to a Juliet balcony. The dining room leads to the octagonal media/game room with vaulted ceilings, 125-inch projection screen and built-in surround sound, allowing you to enjoy serene sunsets on Silver Lake and a movie just after dark. Your overnight guests will enjoy the privacy of the two ensuite bedrooms that are also located on this level.
The third level is host to another grand foyer with two oceanfront bedrooms, one lake view bedroom, and a spacious laundry room/linen closet.
A staircase leads to the tranquil owner’s suite where you’ll enjoy panoramic views of the morning sunrise and the soothing sound of waves crashing. Luxurious, with relaxed understated elegance, this suite comprises the entire fourth level of the home and features a stone fireplace, sitting room, exercise room, laundry room, wet bar and French doors that open to the terrace overlooking the ocean. Take the private staircase from the owner’s suite to the octagon-shaped fourth-floor observatory, where you can take in 360-degree views of the beautiful natural surroundings or step outside to the rooftop deck and enjoy the ocean breezes.
After a day on the beach, you’ll enjoy the convenience of the lower-level cabanas with showers, changing rooms and a laundry room. This level also has a four-car garage and plenty of storage space for all your beach gear.
