With some $2,200,000 view properties the value is in the view and the fact that they used lots of windows. This 5 bedroom, 4.74 bath 2004 house actually has the furnishings to go with the view. Each room seems to use as much of the view of the Sound as possible, but also has character worth noting as well. The formal spaces, like the living and dining room have pillar and box beam highlights emphasized by painted trim work. The kitchen is finished with rich cabinetry, tile back splash, marble counters, and art glass lighting. The master bath has the now-classic separate glass-enclosed shower and raised bath, and framed in more marble. The office looks like a place of power, or at least the source of the funds to pay to live there. The house is perched above Beach Drive, which means it isn't on it; but it also means it gets a longer view thanks to the height. That perch also explains why you have to take a bridge to get from the street to the front door, and there's an elevator to manage getting between floors. Oh what fun the kids can have with that. Ding!
