The 6th Street residence is the multi-generational family headquarters for a couple who celebrate the simple and important in life. A stage where special moments are created - from an intimate dinner with good friends to the grandkids splashing in the pool. Celebrating the past, grounded in the present, and anticipating the future, this home is confident and personable - exuding a composed, masculine structure that is balanced by nurturing, feminine layers. 

The 'driftwood' palette of materials responds to the seaside neighborhood while the beach-chic appointments both interior and out promote an unpretentious oasis. The main level melds indoor and outdoor living spaces and is overlooked by the master level including media and office space. When the larger family pays a visit, the third level bedroom suites and living area combine with the lower level bedroom and play areas to accommodate the union of three generations.

Purposely flexible - both in its physical and philosophical conception - this home is a vertical village where empty nesters share special times alone or with company, casual or formal, indoor or outdoor. And always celebrating life - a deep appreciation for the grounded, romantic and meaningful that can only come from the gathering of loved ones in the right place at the right time.
