The living room has a fireplace and opens to a deck. Adjacent to a dining area, the eat-in kitchen features a marble-top island and “exquisite” woodwork and cabinetry, according to the listing, as well as stone countertops and high-end stainless steel appliances. An additional space, which was being used as a gym, has a double-height ceiling.
The master bedroom has a fireplace and private balcony, and the master bath has a spa tub.
A screened-in porch for outdoor dining opens to the deck around the pool.
The 1.25-acre property includes a private boardwalk to an inlet off Mecox Bay. A heated Gunite pool and spa overlook the water. There is also a one-car detached garage.
Vincent Horcasitas and Alan Schnurman of Saunders & Associates had the listing.
