Property Description:

The Tatum Beach House, 1972, William Turnbull, Jr. FAIA. Of the many reasons this ingenious structure won Architectural Record's Record House of the Year, perhaps the most important in terms of its gifts to living is its consciously elemental nature. The raw construction materials, now weathered like driftwood, and its glassy openness, enhance the occupant's direct connection to the powerful natural forces and elements of the beach environment. The land, the family, the acts of building, the joys of inhabiting, all merged in Bill's mind into homes for the imagination. They are buildings that honor human presence in the land. This beautiful ocean front home is located on the sand at Potbelly Beach. A gated private drive curves down through the Coastal Forest to the Tatum House. Owners are members of the Potbelly Beach Club LLC, a co-operative organized to maintain and protect this rare beach environment. Purchase to be all cash. This is a rare opportunity to enjoy ocean front living.
