Expansive ocean and island views and lavish amenities highlight this gorgeous, private knoll-top property at the end of a long, gated, palm-lined drive. Large windows, vanishing glass doors, exquisite finishes, and superb quality combine in gracious, light-filled open spaces, all oriented to the majestic views and ideal for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining. The central living area is an open and elegant living and dining room with high ceilings, wide-plank hardwood floors, a stunning full-height matched marble fireplace, and a wall of glass that folds away, opening the space to a wide, shaded portico looking out at the serene backyard and the ocean. The chef's ocean-view kitchen is a study in culinary style, with beautiful cabinetry, marble countertops, a large island with seating, two dishwashers, a double Wolf range, glass refrigerator, walk-in pantry, desk space, and a large breakfast alcove with tall, arched windows. This opens to a restful family room with a fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and foldaway glass doors opening to the portico and the infinity pool. Also on the main level is an office with high coffered ceilings, fireplace, wraparound shelving, and a reading nook; a media/entertainment lounge with a wet bar; and two en-suite bedrooms. Within a stone turret, a curved staircase leads to the lower level, wrapping around an enormous cylindrical aquarium. This level features an impressive and beautiful variety of recreational amenities. There is a high-capacity, fingerprint-access wine cellar; a dramatic billiards lounge with a tray ceiling, full-width wet bar, and exterior turf area; an exceedingly comfortable, wide-screen movie theater; a recording studio; a large mirrored gym with a ballet barre and three sets of French doors; a massage room and large sauna; and an extra room that could be a bedroom. The home's upper floor has four en-suite ocean-view bedrooms, including a spectacular owner's suite with dual bathrooms, a reading/office room, large fireplace, sitting area, and a private balcony overlooking the backyard and the ocean. The grounds of this inspired residence are every bit as lovely as the home itself, with lawns, patios, firepit, outdoor living room, al fresco dining table, fireplace, waterfall infinity pool, enormous pool deck, water feature, built-in sofas, and amazing ocean views. Stone steps lead up the hillside through a landscaped garden and an orchard to a birds-eye-view lookout with tables and chairs, perfect for cocktails at sunset and star gazing into the night. This is a remarkable and romantic contemporary Mediterranean residence.
