Pa- ssersby will be dis appointed when t hey can’t see inside — unlike many contempora­ry homes that have large windows facing the street, this home is private. T- he large panes of glass are re served for looking out over the backyard.

The homeowner says he “loves the luxury, comfort and how the s-pace lends itself so well to en tertaining inside and out. This home feels like a Miami vacation retreat,” says listing agent Melanie Wright of ReMax Hallmark Wright Group, who has listed the property with Lindsay Wright.

Multi-tiered cedar and stone decks and a covered balcony provide vacation- inspired al fresco living space. “It’s a workfree oasis with exterior lighting a-nd low-maintenanc­e landscap ing,” Wright says. Sit back and enjoy the outdoor sound system or a waterfall feature that’s sure to calm the senses.

The f our- bedroom, f i vebathroom stucco home is on a double, 50-foot-wide lot where a detached home and a double garage once stood. Both were demolished to make way for the stylish home, built in 2011 by architects Nelson Kwong and Neal Prabhu of nkArchitec­ts. T- he company specialize­s in de s-igning sustainabl­e urban hous ing, Wright says.

The sun- filled home has 12-foot ceilings and wall-to-wall glass retractabl­e doors to catch the sunlight. A 20- ft.- tall window overlooks the backyard.

Sustainabl­e bamboo flooring is used throughout. The openconcep­t home has an office nook that “allows you to be productive while still being in touch with the activities of the moment,” Wright says.

T- he lavish master suite in cludes a double-sided fireplace, his-and-hers walk-in closets and a six-piece ensuite bathroom.

For movie lovers of all ages, the theatre room is a dream come true. It has state- of- thea-rt sound equipment and a pro jection screen. It also has a wet bar, a microwave and a stainless s-teel fridge so snacks and bever ages are never far away.

For fitness buffs, the gym has a wall- to- wall mirror, cushion flooring and an emergency dispatch button.

Along with luxury finishes, the home offers comprehens­ive security and safety features.

The home was designed for family living and entertaini­ng in a great Beach location.

 ??  ?? The house is on a double lot, giving it plenty of entertainm­ent space in and out. The interior gets a lot of natural light.
