Located on the barrier island commonly referred to as “Seven Mile Island,” this quarter-acre, oceanfront property was transformed with a focus on maximizing the outdoor living and entertaining spaces while maintaining a sense of privacy from the adjacent public domain. Unique to this property, a viewshed deed restriction maintains open views of the ocean which results in an expansive beachside rear yard. Separating the property from the public space, a large, sweeping brick wall with custom gated thresholds dually welcomes one into the property while creating a physical and visual separation from the streetscape. The expansive rear yard takes on a modern flair with an elevated swimming pool and pool house. The design also features a custom built-in firepit and seating area, a covered dining space, a unique foot-wash, an outdoor shower/changing area, and a few well-placed garden ornaments for a personalized touch. The landscape design favored the modern aesthetic to compliment the property’s establish vernacular.
