This storybook Mediterranean-style estate, likened to a castle on the sand, features the Atlantic Ocean as its backyard. Located at 263 Ocean Blvd. in the desirable Golden Beach community, it’s an enchanting two-story resort-style dream home with a 75-foot private beach. The estate is priced at $8,450,000.
Within the six-bedroom, eight-and-one-half-bath offering, rebuilt in 1998, are open, expansive living areas, fine details and an endless list of amenities. Glittering marble floors stretch throughout the home, which is further accented by concrete block stucco, arched windows and doorways, twisted columns and vaulted ceilings. Sweeping views of the water can be enjoyed from nearly every room, but especially the family room, which is encircled by impact glass.
The kitchen is gourmet-style and spacious, appointed with top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances. In the sizeable master suite, residents can enjoy access to a wraparound terrace with stairs leading to the pool and patio areas. The suite also features his-and-hers baths — hers includes a dressing area, luxurious bath, walk-in closets, a Jacuzzi and walls of impact-glass windows and doors that look out over the pool and allow for grand, direct oceanfront views.
The home’s exterior is equally breathtaking. A vast and open terrace leads directly to both the sparkling pool and private beach. Adjacent to the pool is a chickee hut that has a built-in, stainless steel barbeque grill, granite countertops and a bar area, a media/entertainment room, a cabana with two changing rooms and bath. Amenities also include an on-site guard and a two-car garage, as well as a private guest/staff room with an ample living room.
The residence is within close proximity to world-renowned Bal Harbour Shops as well as other high-end restaurants and boutiques.
