The picturesque carriage house, with 3 staff apartments, has 6 bedrooms and 4 full baths. An exquisitely hand tiled swimming pool, complete with a luxurious cabana pavilion and an outdoor living area overlooking the Atlantic, and three heated greenhouses complete the picture. Peerless quality, brilliant seaside vistas, one of a kind property.
