Endless ocean views and sun-kissed beaches create an idyllic background for this architecturally distinguished residence tucked away on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in Ponce Inlet. The coastal estate comprises nearly two acres with 107 feet of water frontage making it a rare find and easily one of the most desirable oceanfront estates in Central Florida. Ensuring privacy for even the most notable celebrities, the home is hidden behind tall whispery white sand dunes and is surrounded by an extensive seawall.
A private drive lined with palm trees and punctuated by an impressive stone fountain and circular driveway is a fitting introduction for the 6,300-square-foot design. Reflecting the ultimate in Florida living, the open plan is bathed in natural light and capitalizes on panoramic views through an abundance of 20-foot floor-to-ceiling double-paned windows. Marble floors, three two-sided fireplaces and a series of formal and informal spaces set the tone for grand entertaining as well as comfortable family living.
The spacious kitchen affords inspiring views for the busy chef through a charming five-foot ‘porthole’ window, which complements the granite countertops, cozy breakfast nook and ample cabinet storage.
Wake up to spectacular sunrises from the first-floor master suite featuring skylights, adjoining sun room with private terrace and a marble bath. Additional accommodations are found on the second level with three en suite bedrooms—two featuring private balconies. Also found upstairs is a spacious 32 x 17-foot game room handsomely appointed with an entertainment center, wet bar, pool table and an expansive balcony overlooking the ocean. An outdoor hot tub, three-car garage and decked access to the beach complete this private beachfront retreat.
Ponce Inlet is a quiet coastal town located approximately 12 miles from Daytona Beach and is less than 30 minutes to Daytona Beach International Airport. The charming area features a variety of water sports, shopping, fine dining, beachside bars as well as a marine science center and 40-acre nature park. The area is also home to the second tallest brick lighthouse in the U.S. Offered fully furnished, this property is strategically positioned at the end of the peninsula thereby creating a peaceful haven far from the maddening crowd.
