Property Description

Then-Town Architect and 2019 Seaside Prize Winner, Charles Warren, used the ancient Roman statesman Pliny the Younger's letters as a jumping off point for the design of his highly lauded Neoclassical villa and Pompeiian-red icon at the corner of Odessa and Forest. Every color and most decor elements are original and intentional, informed by antiquity to create a ''gentle mediation between man and nature'' that would make Pliny proud. Drawing on the inherent perfection of the golden ratio for its exacting proportions, every aspect is true to Warren's interpretation and symmetry, right down to the deliberate cube-within-cube placement of the master bed. Articulated as a sequence of increasingly classical details inward and upward across three levels, it is equal parts indoors and out. Master and guest room are delineated by a simple cubic entry below the piano nobile, with interconnecting loggias on each. A rooftop terrace and Tuscan colonnade capture panoramic views of the beach and town and salty gulf breezes from every direction, with an inviting pair of stargazer chaises for taking in the sun and night sky. It is hard to miss and easy to feel just how fluid, expansive, and inspired the whole space is. An easy show, it has never been rented; and Artisan Builders is putting the finishing touches on a $250,000 restoration with underlying improvements to preserve the historic homage and all its whimsical allusions (see "Documents" for more details). There's even a copy of Warhol's "Mount Vesuvius" as a welcoming gesture to set the vibe. Buy now, and make the most of the summer in this infinitely original, sublimely re-imagined Seaside villa across from the West Pool, just up the street from the beach.
