Tell me all about it: It is tough to pick the most spectacular feature on this jaw-dropping oceanfront home. There are the views from the great room, the fabulous in-ground pool, the private elevator, and the radiant-heated oak floors. We love the coffered ceilings and the fact that the furnishings are part of the sale. But our favorite detail is that the street where the property is has just 12 homes on it, ensuring maximum privacy.
