About 254 Ocean Avenue

Once in a lifetime opportunity to own the main residence at iconic ‘Seafair'. Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, this Louis XIV chateau was designed with an elegant crescent shape to compliment the curve in the peninsula it sits on and create 270 degree ocean views. The estate has undergone a complete restoration and renovation. A grand gated entry provides ample privacy and the long curving driveway creates a spectacular approach to the motor court with fountain and statuary. Set on just under 9 manicured acres, the grounds include walled gardens, expansive terraces overlooking the ocean, fountains, ample landscape lighting, a private beach, tennis court, and vegetable garden. An improved raised sea wall wraps the entire property to guard the grounds and home from any ocean storms. Countless upgrades to the exterior include a new slate roof, reappointed chimneys and flashing, all new terraces and decks, and infinity pool with enclosed systems. The main level boasts elegant rooms including; formal entry hall with grand spiral stair case, ballroom, chef's kitchen, paneled library, sitting room, enclosed sun porch, formal dining room, and butler's pantry. Breathtaking views and marble fireplaces throughout help create both formal spaces for entertaining and informal rooms for relaxation.
