“The waterfront location is spectacular. It totally separates you from suburbia into a beachfront oasis,” says listing agent Diane Goetze of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. She is co-listing with Nava Mitnick.

A circular driveway of crushed stone lined with evergreen plantings leads to a slatted-wood entrance. Before reaching the home, visitors walk through a covered atrium with plantings and water views.

“It pulls you toward the water with this beautiful approach,” Mitnick says of the approximately 3,000-square-foot residence.

Most of the principal rooms, including the kitchen, dining room, living room and library, are designed to face the water. A hallway leads to a family room overlooking the atrium, and the master bedroom has direct water and pool views. Natural wood cathedral ceilings are found throughout the home.

Outdoors, a limestone patio offers 180-degree views, an in-ground pool, a gazebo, lounging space and a brick path from the patio to the beach. At low tide, boulders appear to the east, where birds often perch.
