Superbly designed and meticulously executed, this custom-built oceanfront trophy home is ideally situated on a beautiful stretch of beach – boasting two top championship golf courses. This Provence of Cote D' Azure style villa home was brought to life by noted Parisian architect, Maxime D'Angeac, who carefully curated the exterior and interior designs creating the perfect balance of whimsical and substantial, as well as old-world and modern. This spectacular 7,500sq' (8,800sq' under roof) 6 bedroom, 7 full bath, and 2 powder room home was built in 2003 by commercial builder, Arconics, on massive concrete pilings and hollow concrete flooring between levels. The cost of build today would far eclipse the asking price. Its proud owner will enjoy 116' of sprawling ocean frontage, a stunning 180- degree ocean view, and a private beach walkover. Elevated to provide breathtaking sunset ocean views, the 50' pool was designed with all of the amenities in mind; it is filtered, heated, and cooled with an advanced non-chlorine charcoal system. The pool surround is coral tile, as are all of the east and west facing balconies.
No detail was overlooked in the creation of this magnificent home. A perfect example of this is the exterior plaster, which was executed according to a French formula in order to emulate the aesthetic of homes in the south of France. The exterior surrounds of the windows and doors are "living limestone" quarried from the same quarry that provided limestone to Versailles. All the windows and doors are designed from impact glass with mahogany to satisfy both form and function. The garage doors are also mahogany, and the gutters are copper. Proof positive that no detail was ignored, the ceilings of the many balconies are carved from "pecky cypress", which is not only beautiful, but resistant to rot. The home is equipped with five HVAC systems, two dehumidification systems, three tank-less hot water systems, lightning protection, and security throughout.
Upon entering, the wow-factor of the home becomes apparent, as you are greeted with an elegant entry foyer replete with a fountain with a seaside mural featuring 24kt gold tile, designed by Maxime D'Angeac. Other noteworthy accents include an 1860's Murano glass chandelier, late 1700's interior doors salvaged from a villa in France, cedar coat closet, and wrought iron custom-designed railings on the staircase. The elevator is ideally situated to allow passengers to view the coquina rock internal wall through the glass. Almost every room in the home offers an awe-inspiring ocean view, walls of glass, and oversized windows, contributing to the overall feeling of lightness in the home. The custom chef's kitchen and numerous bathrooms are all outfitted with the highest levels of finish. The wood flooring is a ¾" Peruvian walnut sanded and finished in place and the baseboards are rendered from walnut as well. The interior doors are mahogany with stainless steel inserts and European inserts and hinges. On the second floor, discover the entertainment kitchen, four ensuite bedrooms, great room, and bunk room with a large western-facing balcony. The third floor boasts the incredible master bedroom, with its eye-catching inlaid Peruvian walnut sundial design, balcony, a guestroom with balcony, an additional great room, kitchen, wine room, laundry room, and an office which is hung from roof trusses to allow for open floorplan. The fourth floor features an exercise room, additional storage, and a balcony with the most spectacular views.
This truly one-of-a-kind home is located at the private, gated, oceanfront community of Hammock Dunes. The starting point for any conversation about Hammock Dunes are the two championship golf courses. Hammock Dunes is a premier oceanfront private club boasting a Tom Fazio links course, with jaw-dropping ocean views, and the renowned Rees Jones Creek course – which is nestled among 690 acres of pristine, undeveloped forest and marshland.
