Step into a three-dimensional work of art, where extravagant design and otherworldly amenities await. This $30 million ocean-to-Intracoastal paradise seems worlds away, cloaked in lush foliage along the exclusive Manalapan Beach. This striking showplace was designed by award-winning Studio K Architects and constructed by Leperadise Building & Development, a boutique firm specializing in high-end Manalapan coastal estates. An overall theme of this unique Asian-inspired property is the marriage between the outdoors and the interior, as walls of windows let in natural light and airy outdoor living spaces dot the perimeter.
Enjoying walled and gated seclusion atop nearly 2 acres of land, this eight-bedroom compound is as equipped for grand-scale entertaining as it is for private relaxation. The estate enjoys the serenity and natural beauty of this sublime barrier island landscape, taking in sunrises along the property’s 150 +/- feet of beach frontage and sunsets over the wide expanse of the Intracoastal from the western side of the property. Pass by an elevated north/south tennis court to encounter an extravagant porte-cochère lined with charred cypress trunks. Enter the estate through an approximately 200-year-old Malaysian door to the grand entryway, where you can see the Intracoastal beyond a pavilion-style outdoor living room. Here, a sensuous waterfall cascades into a pool below, surrounded by Zen-like terraces and gardens filled with bamboo, bonsai trees, and volcanic rocks.
The interior is uniquely designed with one-of-a-kind pieces and finishes, including Amazon tigerwood floors, wood-paneled ceiling treatments, furniture-style Japanese cabinetry, and other artistic imported elements. Amenities include a high-speed elevator and Savant smart-house automation. The estate includes a total of eight bedrooms, nine full bathrooms, and two powder rooms. The property encompasses a total of 21,226+/- square feet, including the guest house and seven-vehicle garage with an adjacent full bathroom. Opening to a lanai and outdoor living room, an expansive living/club room centers on a transparent gas fireplace enclosed in bamboo reeds. The room is served by a walk-in wet bar and wine cellar, making it an ideal space for entertaining. Another artistic fireplace highlights the nearby family room, which leads to a second waterside lanai. A spectacular live-reef aquarium connects this room with the dining room, lined with exquisite Japanese Cabinetry.
The kitchen in this estate is unlike any other. It is entirely custom designed, featuring furniture-style cabinetry, honey onyx counters, a professional FiveStar gas range, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, and dual Bosch dishwashers. Enter through French doors to the outdoor dining space set amongst a lush garden and various water features. The first floor also holds a recreation room, a high-tech theater room, and a guest suite in the southeast wing. Another wing contains a two-room staff suite. Ascend the stairs to the second floor, which features a large office/study opening to the family room below. This level features four bedroom suites, one with a waterside terrace and another with a private room that could function as a fitness or massage therapy room.
The third floor is solely dedicated to the ultra-private and luxurious master retreat. This romantic and restful space is warmed by a fireplace and features a treetop terrace looking out over serene ocean waters. The suite includes a sitting room, two wardrobe/dressing rooms, two spa-inspired bathrooms with a sculptural soaking tub, a walk-through mosaic-tiled shower, and a balcony overlooking the Intracoastal. This exotic compound-like paradise features many outdoor living areas, including the main thatch-roofed outdoor living room with a flickering fire pit and waterfall spilling into the pool. Two lanais, served by a full cabana bath, are also part of this Zen-like outdoor living space. The main residence is accompanied by a separate guest house, which rests on the opposite side of the A1A along the Atlantic. Nestled among seagrape-covered dunes, this private guest house enjoys glorious ocean views from its deck and rooftop pool. The modern home is equipped with a living room, a kitchenette, a bedroom, and a full bathroom.
