Property Description

7708 Sunset Drive is truly a lifetime location with a lifetime view. Located on a secluded street in the South end of Avalon, this very special property offers some of the most extraordinary sunset and bay views available on 7 Mile Island all while simultaneously sitting just 3 blocks to one Avalon’s best beaches. Vistas of the bay are unobstructed to the North, West and South and the view is primarily open water – not a view of marsh or other homes like you find with most of the premier bayfront properties. No detail was overlooked in the design, construction, or decoration of this modern shore cottage. The exterior is a beautiful combination of board and batten siding, painted white brick, Alaskan cedar roofing, fencing and decking, and cable rails on all decks. Every bit the equal of the exterior, the interior was expertly designed in a relaxed yet luxurious manor, and the quality is immediately evident after walking through the front door. A striking foyer is milled with floor to ceiling U-channel boards and accented by a live edge console and a built-in nook under the stair. The gravity of the floor to ceiling glass that lines the great room, bay front wall pulls your guests into the primary entertaining space (and towards the bay), where literally no expense was spared to make this extraordinary space so uniquely great. Coffered beams cover the ceiling over the kitchen, living room and dining area. The living room is anchored by a gas fireplace with a granite mantle and accented by a gorgeous wetbar which includes a sink, a Miele dual-zone wine refrigerator, a Miele coffee maker, and two refrigerator drawers. The Tom Hargest designed kitchen sits opposite the living room and is truly a work of art. White upper cabinets marry perfectly to the bleached oak lowers and are accented by extra thick granite top with a mitered waterfall edge. A suite of Miele appliances, including a induction cooktop, refrigerator, two dishwashers, a microwave and a wall oven, all add more luxury to this show-stopping space. The dining area features a massive, custom live-edge table and expansive bay views. Sliders provide access to the rear yard, which is magnificent. A huge pool and hot tub, with a Pebble Tec finish, sits just a couple feet from the waters edge of the bulkhead and is surrounded Alaskan Cedar deck boards. A 17 x 30 fixed pier is outfitted with high-end out door furniture, massive umbrellas, and multiple entertaining spaces and is flanked by two spaces to park water craft, representing just one of a few exceptional options to watch one of the best sunsets on 7 Mile Island. Back inside, the rest of the first floor is features one of two master bedroom suites, a powder room, a laundry area, and a coffee bar with an ice maker and a reverse osmosis water station. Upstairs, you will find a quaint seating area that leads in to a custom, built-in bunk room. In all, there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, along with the other master suite on the second floor. A second laundry area doubles as an office and comes complete with sound proofing and a stained teak countertop. The spacious, bay-side master suite offers some of the best views in the home, accent beams on the ceiling, a huge master bathroom, and slider access to second floor deck complete with multiple seating areas and an outdoor shower. Other very special features include a generator, two Toto Neorests, motorized shades throughout the home, Tom Hargest cabinetry throughout the home, a leak detection system, hot and cold water on all exterior hose bibs, a massive garage, and additional crawl space storage. The property is situated just three blocks from wide open beaches which offer families the best of both worlds - quiet protected swimming on 76th St. and protected raft/boogie board access on 79th St. Stroll to the 74th St. playground and the restaurants, night life, grocery store, tennis courts, and recreational fields all located around 80th Street
