After ten months of renovation / rebuilding, B3 took this 50 year old generic, ugly duckling of the neighborhood and turned it into an easy living, contemporary swan fitting its beach close, ocean view location. Adding a full size dining room and enclosing an existing breezeway added 250 sq ft, creating a spacious feeling,1600 sq ft interior featuring two complete master suites with a third bedroom/office, a third bathroom and full size laundry room. The airy modern kitchen with large island/bar and pass-through to the outside breakfast patio opens to the living room and ocean views beyond. Pocketing glass and single lite stained wood French doors offer unobstructed access from every room to an additional 2,000 sq ft of level, no step outdoor living space. A covered outdoor dining terrace with outdoor natural gas heater, fire element and water feature, lounging patios, and sunset view perches are all cooled by ocean breezes and surrounded by dramatic low water plantings. Using their standard approach and by reusing materials from the existing building along with prudent recycling, B3 created a scaled back, sustainable, energy efficient residence with a lower energy footprint but with all of the current sought after options and amenities of a custom built, single family home in a high-end coastal neighborhood.
