Stunning Beach Drive New Construction home

Coming soon to Aptos' most coveted gated community at Rio Surf & Sands is this luxury retreat, slated for completion in February 2021. Here is a sneak peak at this stunning property, brought you by listing agents Ace Estess and Colleen Marchbank.

Years in the making, this architectural marvel is built to withstand a 9.0 earthquake and tsunami. Structural features include steel I-beam construction, elevator, and a massive 3-story separately constructed retaining wall. This home is made to withstand anything mother nature might throw at it. The views are pretty incredible too.

One of our favorite rooms is the executive office with full-wall folding glass door system and double-sided glass fireplace peaking through to the main living area. Can you imagine working from here?

Just steps from the sand, this 3-level luxury property is perfect for entertaining and is set up for multi-generational family living or rental income possibilities. What does that mean? Basically the upper floors are livable as two completely separate units.

120 feet of linear Beach Drive frontage provides breathtaking 180-degree views of beach and surf from Pacific Grove to Santa Cruz, enjoyed from every living space and bedroom. That's right, each room has deck access. Now that's what I call indoor-outdoor living at its finest.

Here's a glimpse into some of the beautiful beachy-yet-modern finishes we helped choose for the final phase of construction. The hardwood flooring color is called "San Clemente Champagne" and the countertop on the penthouse kitchen island is cut from one solid slab of stone.

The home features over 6,800 sq ft of total usable space, consisting of: 4,377 sq ft living space, 1,599 sq ft garage/hobby space + wine cellar, and 983 sq ft of oceanfront outdoor living deck space. Local builders and involved in the construction include Schultz Construction, MG Custom Builders, Reber Construction, and De Mattei.
