Penn’s single-story, Spanish hacienda-style home was built in 1960 by famed architect Cliff May. It is located on a quiet cul-de-sac with keyed Riviera Beach access. The 3,200 square foot beach retreat has three bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a gorgeous outside area.
The house is built in a classic “U’ style with a courtyard and pool in the center, making it a private enclave for family and kids to enjoy. It’s also a great home for entertaining with outside grill/fire pit and plenty of room for outdoor furnishings.
The property also features a detached two-car garage that also houses an office and an additional bathroom. There is also a separate guest house located at the rear of the property offering extra privacy. The cottage features a bedroom and bathroom.
Upon entering the home through double glass doors, you will walk into a beautifully tiled foyer that looks all the way through to the home to the back yard and pool area. The foyer has a huge skylight letting in plenty of natural light. Through the foyer, you will come to the formal living room complete with a built-in entertainment center and cozy fireplace. The unique-shaped formal dining room has glass doors that lead out to the entertainment area.
The kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances and an extra-long island with seats. The backsplash and island are adorned with cherry green tiles and light Shaker-style cabinets, making the room light and airy. The kitchen leads into a smaller family room with a repurposed brick fireplace, built-in floor to ceiling bookcases and beautiful exposed ceiling beams. Glass doors lead to the beautiful lush garden.
Outside, there is a beautiful tiled entertaining and dining area, that has a grill and fire pit. This is a great area to relax with great views of the rose garden and many plants in their natural environment.
