Built in 2008, this airy sanctuary was designed to marry a contemporary building with the serene landscape that inspired 19th-century painters. No expense was spared to achieve sophistication in conjunction with livability, comfort, and flow. Upon entering the house, one immediately steps into a larger world, as earth, sea, and sky stretch away in every visible direction through floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors.

Upstairs, three unique wings include a master suite with 17-foot ceilings and a private balcony, and a versatile light-infused artist’s studio.
