Own a stunning piece of world history. This house was originally created by the Root family, creators of the iconic Coca-Cola bottle and owners of the Coca-Cola Bottling empire. This one-of-a-kind, multi award-winning oceanfront home was designed by internationally renowned architect, William Morgan, PKS New York architectural company, and is a contemporary work of art. This Miami-like modern masterpiece, seamlessly integrates the breathtaking ocean vista and the innovative interior living areas. The luxury oceanfront home is comprised of two, three-story concrete towers. This trophy house has been featured in architectural books and magazines. The unique etched front glass door leads you into the house and the magnificent stone stairwell brings you to a reception area.
