Play on the green or pick fruit from your choice of lemon, grapefruit, pomegranate, or orange trees. Inside, the lower floors are complete with a grand office, guest suite, large rec room which would be the perfect home theater or playroom on the basement level, and a separated staff suite that could double as an office, or gym. Upstairs wake up every morning to the Ocean from your bright primary suite complete with a walk-in closet, and an elegant bathroom with a steam shower. Retreat to your private patio to take in the morning, and dip in your soaking tub while you savor nature all around you. Two other bedroom suites complete the top floor, both with lovely light and spacious scale.
