Armada

It is as if the Armada was sculpted in place. With a harmoniously balanced footprint carved into the land and an abstract design, it creates a distinct presence.

Contemporary lines employ wood, steel, stone, and glass in beautiful balance. Custom millwork and cherry built-ins punctuate every energy efficient room (radiant in-floor heated). An expansive VG fir pivoting front door opens to a 24′ tall curved-roof atrium that cascades with light. Curved steps lead port side to an open living space surrounded by floor to ceiling glass. An environmentally-friendly Bamboo and brushed granite kitchen features a 6″ thick terrazzo eating bar open to the dining and living area where a double-sided gas fireplace and open cherry display wall look through to the atrium beyond.

The Master suite offers views of the ocean from a curved built-in bed. The en-suite bath employs his and her vanities, a Japanese soaker tub, and a roomy slate shower/steam room. The walk-in closet reveals more cherry built-ins with en-suite laundry.

At 5,299 square feet, Armada exemplifies modern design; the style, composition, and flow of indoor and outdoor spaces make this the ideal home for living & entertaining, showcasing curves and angles that delight the eye. The private terraced decks offer ocean views, perfect for relaxing and entertaining.
