The Ferrari of beach houses, 161 Colonial is perfectly set on a beautiful, very private lot, situated in a manner that maximizes the footprint, privacy and usability of the yard. Custom designed by the homeowner and their highly-respected local architect, this home has every bell and whistle. The larger lot and dimensions allow for a floorplan that does not require that “make it fit” room count all too common to the beach area. The first floor features a sizable foyer, living room, dining room, great room, sitting/office area, kitchen with island seating plus an eat-in area, half bath, storage and a secondary laundry for pool/exterior access. The second floor is very well thought out with: 3 full bedrooms (two with Jack-and-Jill bathroom and one en suite), sizable master suite featuring double walk-in closets with custom closet systems and built-in safes, extensive molding packages, incredible closet space all with custom closet systems, designer lighting and an open feel that continues from the main level. Bonus area is a full 3rd floor with full bedroom, full bathroom and a great room with built-ins and great closet storage.

SIGNIFICANT ITEMS TO NOTE: full masonry chimneys so conversion back to wood-burning is possible, Hemingway custom kitchen, 60-inch Wolf range with dual fuel double ovens, TWO Asko dishwashers, TWO 36-in Sub-Zero refrigerators with bottom freezers, surround sound speaker system in family room, speaker system for entire first floor & master suite, hydro-air system.

EXTERIOR ITEMS OF NOTE: Chinese granite pool and outdoor kitchen surrounds for heat prevention, auto-fill pool with built-in seating and gradual depth to 7 1/2 feet, 12-person auto-fill spa with 8-jet system, waterfall and underwater mood lighting, aqualink control system, outdoor shower, outdoor kitchen with Viking grill with 2 side-burners, mini-refrigerator, rotisserie, warming drawer, accessory drawer, 700 degree searing capability, garbage receptacle, WOODEN SHINGLE ROOF. Private, oversized lot surrounded by Phragmites for privacy with direct access to the beach and playground. Truly a one-of-a-kind home in a beautiful setting with nothing to be desired.
