There’s a modern oceanfront home in the village of Vero Beach, Florida that has, among other attributes, incredible designer lighting. This eight bedroom, 12 bathroom modern wonder blends with the landscape in a seamless outdoor/indoor plan. A 200-foot frontage of wave-lapped private beach tops it off. Designed by architect Erik Helgen, this is 18,000 square feet of Ocean Drive luxury. There are distinct areas for entertaining and everyday living – created from limestone, wood, and glass. The home provides ultimate privacy while showcasing the expansive ocean view. Even the home’s landscape had its own architect. It’s like living at an oceanfront resort. This home is pure modern elegance for those who love to entertain. And wait until you see the light fixtures.
This gorgeous ocean front home has an 80-foot long black-bottom infinity pool and wading pool with in-water seating.
From the front, the house is spectacularly modern – but the minimalist outer appearance belies the dramatic resort home that lies within.
Coming in the main double door entrance, one is soothed by the sounds of a waterfall wall.
The foyer leads to the ocean side of the house, where all of the social areas unfold. This is your first hint of the spectacular lighting choices.
The oceanfront living room is illumined by two sculptural Sharon Marston lighting installations.
The soaring glass-walled living room takes full advantage of the view. A a see-through fireplace to the lanai sits at one end of the room.
The lanai must be one of the most popular rooms in the house with it’s open walls. It features a fireplace and full summer kitchen with wood-fired pizza oven. Beyond it, the palapa.
View from the palapa – your lounge chair awaits.
The lanai connects to the chef’s kitchen and has a dining table with a gorgeous view of the sunset over the ocean.
The lighting fixtures in this house are one of its best features, and that’s saying a lot. Check out the lit Marsten pieces in the living room beyond the fireplace.
The family room, casual dining room and chef’s kitchen combine in one large open space, centered on a free-standing fireplace. The views from every room are spectacular.
The star of the kitchen is the 60-inch BlueStar range. All other appliances are by Wolf, Sub-Zero, and Bosch. We’re speechless. Love. And check out the nautical light fixtures.
The formal dining room features Swarovski “Flying Candles” lighting. The glass doors lead to a sunset courtyard, perfect for cocktails before dinner.
The lights seem to float above the walnut-encased dining room. Notice how high the ceilings are.
A catering kitchen sits at the end of a long bar in this wing of the house. The barstools are the focus in this end of the room.
There’s a dining area both inside and out and once again, the lighting fixtures steal the show.
The wall and fireplace base are made from Silver Shadow Alabama limestone.
Multiple entertaining areas and living areas make this a great house for large family get togethers. And someone is a Casablanca fan.
This self-contained guest wing is perfect for longer term visitors.
The marble breakfast bar accommodates four very funky bar stools.
The lighting fixture in the main house stairwell really turns lighting into art.
A glass balustrade and marble pony wall defer to the light fixture.
It even looks stunning from the far end of the hall.
Guest rooms galore in this house. And that’s good, because you’re bound to have a lot of visitors.
Bright colors make for cheerful rooms – but once again, the view is the thing.
The master offers a courtyard patio with access to the palapa. Well away from the crowds.
The master bath has a marble tub and shower – but the master bedroom also has an outdoor shower for those mornings when you’d like to enjoy nature.
Every guest room has a desk area and a view. What more could you want?
Incredible views to wake up to – and nod off with.
Turn on the fireplace, run the bath and gaze at the view.
A sleek, modern and minimalist bathroom. With all the comforts of home.
The upstairs office has a balcony. And some avant-garde red light fixtures.
Twenty for dinner? No problem. The mere expanse of the outdoor living space gives this home resort status.
A koi pond sits near the walkway between the guest wing and the main house.
How would you like to live in an exotic tropical oasis with limestone terraces, fire-pits, and gardens? We’d never go inside (except to marvel at the light fixtures).
