Bold architecture, but a house designed very much for its location, with views aplenty from the different floors, via both the windows and the terraces.

The main level is access from the front entrance, leading into a ‘dramatic’ great room with high ceilings and plenty of natural light. Love that wood cladding too. That main level includes the living room, dining room, kitchen, fireplace, ‘art display’ and seating areas, with sliding glass doors that open to two separate porches overlooking the beach.
