Perched on a bluff overlooking the ocean, with views from Calafia to Bajamar, this 5000 square foot Mediterranean home is situated within the 24-hour guard-gated private enclave of Puerta del Mar III. The residence was designed by the renowned architect, Roberto Mareno, and features a thoughtful floor plan on 3 levels, with 5 bedrooms (one currently used as an office), generous living spaces indoor and out, soaring wood ceilings and lots of natural light. The choices of materials used in this home are all high end, from the light fixtures and sconces to the vanities and custom cabinetry - every detail is impeccably seen to. The flooring features specially ordered Turkish terrazzo tiles that have been left un-grouted to give a natural European aspect. The gourmet kitchen is open to the great room with fireplace, dining area and beautiful terraces and views. All top-level appliances stay with the home. The top-of-the-line LG refrigerator is only two years old. The spacious laundry room has 2-year old washer and dryer. The fifth bedroom and/or office is also on the entry level. There is an elevator shaft for a 3-floor elevator, the construction of which was overseen by a well-known elevator company and adheres to top tech in the world’s private elevator field. Consequently, if an elevator is desired, the cost to install it would be minimal as the major work is completed with all necessary electrical already in place. There is an extensive security system with cameras throughout.
The oversized two-car garage has glass doors for light and, when the cars are backed out, one can use as a gym. The water filtration system allows for drinking water at each faucet.
The second floor encompasses the spacious master suite with fireplace and deck overlooking the Pacific, as well as a generous second bedroom. The master bath features a Jacuzzi tub and a separate shower, both with windows for ocean views. There are separate his and hers toilet closets with leaded-glass doors and individual lavatories with extensive counter space and a separate vanity. A large custom cedar-lined walk-in closet provides more than adequate room for clothing, shoes and extra storage. This floor also has a separate well-lighted bedroom with another beautifully appointed bath with shower and windows that open for fresh air.
On the last floor, you will find a capacious family room complete with sit-down granite bar and the remaining two wonderful bedrooms, each with a private bath, one of which features all copper fixtures. A sliding door leads out to a backyard patio, which is complete with a Jacuzzi, a fireplace, a BBQ and overlooks the ocean. Stairs lead down the home’s exterior from the ground-level entry, making it feasible to use this entire floor as a first-class rental.
