Colorful Florida Contemporary!
Built in 2000, this 7,652 square foot architectural award-winning beach house is situated in the very private and gated Sanderling Club on Siesta Key. Designed by Guy Peterson, the home takes on the colors of the spectacular Florida West Coast sunsets with delineated living areas from public to family to children’s zone identified by color-coded “cubes.” With its beachfront setting on 1.53 professionally landscaped acres, the five bedroom, eight bath home is filled with light and Gulf of Mexico views. It is built for intimate or large scale entertaining and space for stay-over guests and extended family. In addition to sunning on the beach and playing in the surf, family and guests can enjoy water polo games and lap swimming in the huge pool with a slide for the children while adults relax in the oversized Jacuzzi.
John Lautner Malibu Beach Home!
Lautner’s 1968 Stevens’ house veered away from his usual avant garde spaceship-style designs to emulate a crashing ocean wave. At 3,366 square feet with five bedrooms and five baths, it is situated on 37 feet of sandy beach with a large beachside deck. An unusual feature is the large indoor swimming pool with retractable glass walls that runs full length along the main living area. Natural elements are seen throughout using driftwood colored wood for ceilings and walls. Added to the atmosphere is the beehive shaped mantel over the living room’s wood burning fireplace. Having undergone an extensive restoration and updating for today’s expectations, the home has earned the status of a California State Cultural Landmark.
Beach House with Retracting Roof!
If living in a beach house on Pacific Beach isn’t cool enough, how about a beach house with a thirty-foot glass atrium and fully retractable roof? Starry nights, the full moon and shooting stars? As if looking out to see the beach wasn’t enough, imagine an evening stroll up the 3-story glass stairs to the retractable glass ceiling crown. Every floor of this home opens with floor-to-ceiling retractable glass walls for views across the beach to the Pacific’s horizon. When it’s time for privacy, the touch of a button closes the glass walls and window coverings.
Santa Barbara Beachfront!
Entering by way of a gated long private drive shaded by huge eucalyptus, oak and cypress trees and understory landscaping, the new clay tennis court is set just beyond the trees. All white with crisp lines throughout, it flows softly with strategically placed walls making doors unnecessary but still creating private areas. This is architecture that frames stunning scenes from its windows and with wall space that will also spotlight large works of art accented by fine minimalist furnishings. Encompassing 5,979 square feet, the main house has a large open great room, a wing with two bedrooms and baths and large master suite with private balcony and two fireplaces. It has a chef’s kitchen, office and a dining room overlooking the entertainment deck and ocean. There is also a separate 800 square foot guest house with a courtside living room, a room with four bunk beds, kitchen and two baths. The home was completed in 2008.
When you walk inside, the interior lines of the building are even more exciting. Wide open spaces, glass walls, sand and ocean out every window and rays of light beaming down from skylights. Watch volleyball games, surfers and skateboarders from your living room, patio or balconies and enjoy the vibrant colors of Pacific sunsets. Stroll down to the pier with your fishing gear, surf swells or get a workout on your skateboard or bicycle. Invite your friends or your clients for anything from cookouts on the beachside patio to a formal gathering. When the day is done, enjoy the sauna to relax overplayed muscles, then soak in the spa tub to wind down and re-energize for the next California day in Hermosa Beach.
