56 Sandpiper Drive

Art Deco Oceanfront + 1 acre of pristine dunes. Undamaged by Hurricane Matthew

Meet Sean Hess.

Lured by its big windows with views of the ocean sunrise, the couple that purchased this 1978 Ranch knew they had to renovate. Art Deco, with its rich colors, high gloss materials, and bold geometric designs was the perfect motif for making this home—and its fabulous beach location—come alive instantly.

And what a location! Sitting on a full acre, dunes of salt-tolerant plants, wildflowers, and native succulents provide a gorgeous backdrop for the ocean, as well as doing the double duty of protecting this home from storms. As part of the home’s renovation, a metal, 50-year roof rated to 200 MPH was installed (with screws every foot), and rolling hurricane shutters were added. In October 2016, when many island properties were impacted by Hurricane Matthew, this home was not damaged and did not flood—even though it sits directly on the ocean.

Bark! A puppy pokes his nose over the kennel. Bark bark! Two more puppies appear at the back door. There are dogs here, and their sometimes theatrical activities lead to paw prints on the glossy tile. An elegant mud room, a fenced yard, and the walled pool area are perfect for this family’s rambunctious pets, as they will be for yours.

And there are more than just domestic pets here. Gulls and pelicans ply the ocean trade routes while least terns winter over here from far-away Alaska. Dolphins are seen splashing just offshore, and even the occasional northern right whale, the rarest of all whales, will make a winter appearance.

Rare, sophisticated, beautiful. 56 Sandpiper.
