The design of the arrival floor brings guests and residents together in a mix of broad entertaining and dining space immediately beyond the private foyer. Forward and to the right, directly on the beach is a very large main floor terrace with dining table and inviting built-in seating areas. As this terrace warps the residence on its direct ocean side, glass sliders present an interior dining zone with immediate access to an eat-in kitchen designed for the cook who loves to party. The entire area is designed to either open up for casual dinner parties or, once prepared, to hide behind the curtains on those select, formal evenings.
Other features of the arrival floor include immediate beach and pool access on the east side and a full office or den, guest bedroom with en-suite bath, and full maid's bedroom and bath. A sleek guest powder room with free form stone sink is tucked just next to the stairs.
Upstairs is a haven away from the guests and activity of the beach level. Its crown jewel surely must be the bath tub in the oceanward master suite. This beauty has been built at a level which allows its lucky occupants to blissfully float at eye level with the beach. The unique positioning of the suite allows the bath to be at the same time extremely private and yet very, very open to the vistas of the dunes and dolphins just beyond.
A major benefit of the bi-level space for families is the ability to group activity rooms and children's rooms in an age appropriate fashion. A large laundry and ironing area is thoughtfully located adjacent to the west bedrooms.
This town home is a treasure designed to be refreshed and passed from generation to generation. Its current owners took what was already considered to be the island's ultimate bi-level townhome and completely gutted it in order to bring it to the 21st century's state of the art. In refreshing this beauty, obligatory fine silks and sea grasses were used in its window treatments, and fine stones and woods were used to renew the floors throughout. The master suite was completely reworked to better advantage its position directly on the ocean in order to leave one with the impression of a restful, Zen-like space floating over the sand dunes. It is a marvel of design. The adjoining master bedroom captures southeast views of the ocean and its playful breezes while isolating itself from the rest of the residence for total privacy. All other bedrooms have been reworked and bathrooms totally modernized.
Need we mention the sound system throughout is Bang and Olfson perfection?
Key Biscayne's most splendid example of the casual, yet refined, island life. A 6 bedroom, 6 bath treasure just above its finest beach.
