Amenities include central air conditioning, a marble gas fireplace, Mexican quarry-tile in the large foyer and guest quarters. Elaine talks about the appeal of the home:

“This is a one-of-a-kind home designed by the previous owner’s architect daughter, who was way ahead of her time ... There are panoramic water views through the floor-to-ceiling windows that extend into the master bedroom ... There is summertime partying and lounging on the tri-level cedar deck ... We moor both a 32-inch sailboat and a 21-inch Parker (power boat) and the inlet is only ten minutes away.”
