This uniquely ornamented ocean front house (duplex) that has long been familiar to Strand walkers. This was the dream home of Marian and John Scott and received an Historic Landmark designation from the City (not on State Registry). Designed by the owners in the International Mid Century Modern style, one of the first in welded steel, taking full advantage of its coastal location. Two 8ft wide cantilevered decks are flanked by architectural panels for both privacy and a wind break, consisting of handcrafted verdigris copper and stained glass insets. In the upper street level an enclosed atrium features a reflection pond and is open to the sky. Stationary and plate glass doors reach from floor to ceiling to maximize space and ocean views. The master bedroom is cantilevered over the living room continuing the open space. The three stories facing the ocean accommodate two spacious decks, one for the apartment below and the other for the main house above. A unique indoor-outdoor lifestyle is achieved with upper and lower pass-through elements open to the atrium serviced by an additional exterior staircase, as shown in the photos. The sand level lower unit has 2 bdrms, 1 bath, living rm and kitchen. The main house has a bedroom and bath and living area on the first floor with the master suite upstairs. Also upstairs, a half bath, studio and study/den. 3 blocks No. of Bruce's Beach. Original condition. This home is a candidate for a Mills Act application with reduced property tax.
