Inside you will find lofty 10-foot ceilings, a stunning glass wall, massive bay windows facing the ocean, a large balcony with ample lounge space and an outdoor shower and dressing area. Five bedrooms and three full bathrooms provide plenty of space for a large family or lingering guests, and a chef’s kitchen and dining area that seats 12 are perfect for both the gourmand and the entertainer.

While the sale price of the property has not been released, it was described as one of the highest prices “on the ocean” in 2015. Ahoy,...
