Million Dollar Listings: Oceanfront Luxury in Highland Beach

by Sasha CarterMay 22, 2015

From the land it occupies to the home itself, this estate is one of finest examples of luxury oceanfront living you’ll find anywhere in the country.

For starters, the land on which this home is built is undoubtedly one of the most desirable pieces of land in all of Highland Beach. With more than 150 feet of sparkling, private beach, this two-acre lot is buffered from high winds by a gently sloping dune and a dense hedge of sea grapes. The white sand coastline is a favorite of nesting sea birds and turtles, and it’s one of the few pet-friendly beaches on the Gold Coast.

New and Improved

The home that formerly occupied this property was respectable in its own right, but when the most recent owners purchased the property, they took the opportunity to build a dazzlingly grand mansion every bit as breathtaking as the natural beauty that surrounds it. Let’s take a look, shall we?

A Who’s Who of Designers

Nothing was left to chance in the conception and construction of the home at 2455 S. Ocean Blvd.; it’s a luxuriously enviable dwelling with a pedigree to match. This home was designed by renowned Madney Architects New York, and construction was contracted to highly respected Mark Timothy Luxury Homes. The home’s picture-perfect interiors bear the unmistakable design touch of Marc-Michaels.

Classic, Yet Modern

This home has an eclectic style that is at once classic and contemporary, timeless yet cutting edge. With its artful roofline and charming dormers, the architecture borrows design elements from the French-Eclectic ethos, but the home has a style all its own.
Inside, you’ll find a thoughtful mix of time-tested luxury design flourishes such as coffered ceilings, marble columns, vaulted doorways, and sparkling chandeliers intermingling with modern elements like floor-to-ceiling windows, recessed lighting, and backlit, semi-precious bathroom countertops.
Here, bold geometrics counterpoint rich, exotic hardwoods. Venetian plaster harmonizes with chrome and glass. The result is a unique living space with a musicality unlike anything else you’ve experienced.

Room to Live Life Your Way in Highland Beach, FL

This nearly 24,000 square-foot home truly has too many wonderful features to list. As you’d expect from a place of this quality, there’s a top-shelf home theater, a number of beautiful fireplaces, multiple wet bars, and lots of space for entertaining. There’s also a state-of-the-art wine cellar, a well-appointed gym, and a six-car garage for storing your collection of automotive trophies.

In the backyard, you’ll find a spacious and gorgeous swimming pool, complete with a cabana, mesmerizing views of the sparkling Atlantic, and a private, outdoor shower. Regal, mature palm trees give it a wonderful touch of classic Florida style.
With eight bedrooms and 13 bathrooms, you’ll have plenty of space to accommodate guests. Or, you could just sleep in a different bedroom every night of the week. It’s your home, after all.

The Master Bedroom

Then again, you’ll probably want to spend most of your time in the master bedroom. With its stately fireplace, ocean views, and comfortable sitting room, it’s a luxe refuge you’re sure to love. The master bath boasts spa-quality appointments that include a capacious shower designed for two, a relaxing jetted tub, and sparkling marble flooring.

The dressing room is equally impressive. It was obviously built with for someone with fine taste, and not only in homes, but in fashion as well. With multiple hardwood wardrobes, wall display space for hundreds of pairs of shoes, enough closet space to put on multiple runway shows, you’ll have lots of space for your favorite fashion pieces.
