Welcome to your serene, one-of-a-kind coastal oasis featuring a custom ELEVATOR with mahogany panels, and a beautiful marble floor with a nautical compass motif. Don’t miss this opportunity to own such impeccable architecture in the desirable north end of the charming seaside town of Strathmere. This stunning, very well maintained 3 bedroom (4th possible or office) /3.5 bathroom single family home is situated on a sizeable 60 foot x 100 foot corner lot. This house is situated only 100 yards from a “handicapped access beach”. The incredibly convenient ramp to the beach and the blue sand mats are a huge asset for family members with mobility issues. As such, lifeguard presence at our beach during the season is a major comfort. Savor your morning coffee on any of the 7 tranquil decks (all have water spigots in case anyone spills their ice cream cone). Treasure glimpses of the beach and bay, including a rooftop deck with absolutely breathtaking 360 degree beach and bay views. The magical rooftop deck was built to structurally support a hot tub! Wiring, plumbing and ambient lighting are in place for you to add your own hot tub. Just imagine the serenity as you are enveloped by nature. Beautiful coastal colors enhance the entire house. The top floor boasts cathedral ceilings throughout, which add to the ambiance of the airy, open plan interior. A cupola with automated shades creates fanciful sunlight displays in the great room, as well as a welcoming beacon of light at night…both inside and out. A cozy gas fireplace, with a beautiful tile surround, is a fabulous comfort feature for cold weather getaways. The large kitchen and dining room, with a volume ceiling and feature window, offers lovely custom cabinetry with arched tops and glass fronts. The half-circle feature window captures magical sunset views as the sun dances across the house. What a joy to cook (or grill on a gas grill on the dining room deck) in such an environment. The spacious main bedroom, with an ensuite bathroom, is a wonderfully comfortable space to rest or gaze at the water. Ride the elevator down to the second floor. The luxurious second floor family room/office/any-other-kind-of-room is accessed by a creative set of custom made Dutch doors. The delightful kitchenette, with an arched feature wall, marble tiles, mini-refrigerator, lighted glass cabinets, and granite top with a sweeping curve, affords second floor guests total independence, if they so desire. A second main bedroom, with a larger ensuite bathroom, has an attached deck, as do all other bedrooms. Ride the elevator down to the first floor. The huge foyer entry way has many large closets. (This house is being sold unfurnished and does not include personal belongings or accessories). Extra deep garages (2) allow you to unload your luggage and groceries with the hatchback fully open. Send your luggage and groceries up on the elevator…It’s a real knee saver. The South garage, (30 feet deep), easily fits a full-size, extended cab/ 8 foot-bed truck, with room to spare. Two outside showers (lockable) allow for total privacy. One is lit for those night time strolls on the beach. The expansive and pristine yard is a combination of grass (with an automated, Wi-Fi enabled sprinkler system), and pea gravel stone. Vinyl fencing enhances the yard, both visually and functionally, with smaller spaces for monitoring little ones. This house is within a short walking distance to four restaurants/bars. There’s nothing like strolling down Bay Avenue after a day at the beach to wind down with a great meal/drinks at The Deauville. Further assets include a security system, thermostats (2), Security cameras, 150 mile per hour rated windows, a concrete foundation, and a large driveway expanse for cars or boats. Be sure to join your fellow “Strathmerians” watch the riveting sunsets at the nearby boat ramp. Don’t miss this spectacular opportunity to make your seaside dreams come true. It’s more than a house…it's an experience!
