Wake up watching surfers.....sleep with the windows open listening to the waves. You will love the architecture of this home. The stonework on the exterior is magnificent, and the interior details are done with refinement and taste.
As you look out to the ocean & watch the surfers, the Ritz Carlton is just up the bluff on your left. You can walk up for lunch, dinner, or cocktails... If you follow the beach path to the right, you can walk to the Monarch Bay Golf Links course at the Five Star St. Regis. The course is just around the path & golfers play on an incredible course overlooking the ocean. Continue on the beach path & it curves around to the St. Regis. This gated community is considered one of the premier gated communities along the Gold Coast. Home to celebrities & sports stars, you find privacy, tranquility & resort-like beauty at every turn. You are living the perfect beach life, yet you are away from the hustle & bustle of crowded street parking. The home has roses and peach trees in the garden. (No large weddings, sorry!) Previous tenants say this was the most wonderful, memorable beach vacation of their lives.
You can walk up to the Ritz to have a massage, or watch the sunset over a cocktail. You can stroll to the St. Regis for a work out or coffee. Pain de Monde and Beach Hut Deli are just outside the gated entry and down the street….across from the Ritz Carlton. You can stroll over for a latte, or have lunch in the sidewalk cafe. Drive down the long private driveway at the end of your day, and enjoy your day in the peaceful Tuscan interior. Open up the sliding glass doors to create an 'outside' room. There are no bugs here.... Sleep with your doors and windows wide open and luxuriate in the ocean breezes and fresh air! The home is air conditioned but you will never use it! Listen to the waves.... You will sleep at night to the sound of the waves on Salt Creek Beach, and wake up to see surfers and dolphins playing in the water. Two times a year you can watch whales spouting from the house. Sailboats, kayaks and yachts float by in the distance.
