Graceful Grounds: Communing with the natural beauty of the property, landscaping, outdoor areas and even the converted porch make the most of their Golden Mile surrounds.
Heaven is Real: The outdoot living spaces at the Chartier home evoke a heavenly feel--understated by design, but magical in presence.
Reigning Oaks: The Chartier property is home to ages-old oak trees that set this address apart. In fact, the couple's decision to buy this very property was mainly due to the gorgeous, sprawling oak that anchors the backyard.
Master Class: A master bedroom was deftly retrofitted downstairs, looking as though it had always been there. The hickory and Brazilian cherry floor is design eye candy.
It's a Breezeway: The Chartiers made the most of transitions from the original floorplan of the beach house. The former breezeway steps down to the kitchen and a small hall space now does double duty as a laundry room and appliance dept.
Zen By Design: The Youmans personally designed their waterway home to honor sacred principles of configuration and their personal passions, which includes a downstairs yoga and meditation room.
Ease And Grace: The Youmans’ home is a decor statement in peace and tranquility. Lola, the family Labradoodle, loves to camp out in the airy main living area that overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway.
Study in Simplicity: Simple, yet fetching, barn-style sliding doors masks any clutter in this study/reading room.
The Wonders Of Woodwork: The dining area alone is a master class in woodwork with coffered ceilings, fireplace cladding and hickory flooring.
Bath Time: How can you beat a luxurious master suite soaker tub that also comes with a view of the Intracoastal Waterway?
Seaside Stunner: This oceanfront jewel debuted in 2007 as what Barbara Graham described as, “Malibu meets Palm Beach.” Her design has morphed over the years into “Old World Mediterranean,” but the beauty of this incredible property has not faded, inside or out.
Heading South: Over time, the Grahams decided that the only thing missing on their property was a pool. But they did not want to block their sweeping ocean vista with fencing, so the swimming pool went to the south side of the home, adjacent to the bar alcove with a bathroom. Perfect.
Kitchen Capers: Barbara used a mix of finishes and textures in the kitchen to achieve a classic yet provocative effect. Brick, mosaic tile, stone and limestone make this modest kitchen live large.
A Spa with a View: A soaking tub takes center stage in the master bedroom, offering a window-side view of the Atlantic Ocean.
Bedtime Story: The master suite in the Graham home follows design suit with relaxed earthy tones and an ocean presence through French doors.
