About This Property
LOCATED NEXT TO THE BEACH FRONT, this is a First Class property in an exceptional, highly sought-after location! Being so close to the water, this is your opportunity to bask in the refreshing breeze and relax to the mesmerizing sights & soothing sounds of the ocean from various locations throughout the home…not just from a deck, as is the case with many properties that are located further from the beach. You’ll enjoy great ocean views from the front & rear decks, the Living Area, and even while you prepare meals in the kitchen! There is a phenomenal sunrise & ocean view from the Master Bedroom & its private deck! The home was thoughtfully designed by Paul Kiss of OSK Design Partners and custom built by DL Miner in 2004 on a large lot in Avalon’s Southern end. The richly appointed 4,100+ square foot interior features a distinctive blend of intimate personal space and grand entertaining area with inviting open space & extensive use of glass - 3 steel beams were used to create the open space on the street-side of the home. This exclusive setting is only a short walk from restaurants, Public Recreation, playgrounds & sunsets over the bay! The quiet location is enhanced by the lack of development on the opposite side of Dune Drive between 71st & 74th Street, where you’ll find Armacost Park. In addition, the beautiful new homes on the street and the buried utility lines enhance the aesthetics & appeal of this location! Featured in two architectural magazines, interior highlights include: 4 bedrooms, 4 Full Bathrooms, 2 Powder Rooms, a Media Room (can convert to a 5th BR if needed) featuring corrugated steel, sound-proofing, 7 speakers & a huge TV, a private 3rd Floor Master Suite & deck, an “ocean view” reading nook on the 2nd floor that beckons you to curl-up with your favorite book & enjoy the peaceful setting, a “Chef’s Kitchen” featuring a gorgeous wood countertop, pantry (with dumbwaiter to 1st level for easy unloading of groceries), a Wolfe range, twin Thermador ovens, wine fridge, ice maker & wet bar, gas/wood fireplace in the Living Area, 1st Floor with 3 private bedroom/bath Suites, Family Room with deck wrapping-around to the pool, built-in cabinetry with wet bar, copper sink, ice maker, wine fridge & dishwasher and an attached garage with convenient access into Laundry Room. There is also a detached garage, professionally landscaped grounds & a private pool with reclaimed brick patio area! The property has been lovingly, proactively maintained by this original owner. See Addendum Section of MLS for additional details.
