Local Treasure. One of the region’s pre-eminent mid-century modern landmarks perched on a 1-ace private property with dramatic ocean views. This substantial, one-of-a-kind masterpiece was designed by architect Bob Punderson & erected in 1964 by skilled artisans to exacting standards using the best available materials including; black walnut, teak & white oak. This modern home reflects a Japanese sensibility; the gable-on-hip roof has a pronounced Asian flare. Deep overhangs shelter the body of the house & provide an overall horizontal emphasis. The wrap-around driveway meets the house at the grand porte corchere and entry. A 6,600 sq.ft entertainer’s dream flows seamlessly on one level with all principal rooms enjoying panoramic views. There is extensive custom cabinetry throughout the home & the living room boasts a sleek travertine fireplace. With access to the terrace, the dining room features a hand painted Chinoiserie. Central to the home is the chefs kitchen with espresso coloured granite countertops, teak cabinetry & an indoor barbecue. The adjoining family room has its own fireplace & windows to a massive solarium with indoor pool & new Dryotron to recycle energy & dehumidify.There are 4 bedrooms & the option of a separate home office or in-law suite. Extensive outdoor living areas include a hot tub oasis & over 1,600 sq. ft of patios.There is space for the addition of a garden suite too. The homes historic significance remains intact while benefitting from extensive upgrades by the current custodians including, rift-sawn white oak floors, all mechanical & electrical systems, new roof, double paned windows, upgraded insulation, solar panels, the addition of an elevator plus more. Mature landscaping blooms from March through July, and there are a variety of large trees & a climate-controlled greenhouse.Effortlessly chic country living in the city, this property offers easy access to shops, schools & numerous parks.
