The Secret Seashell is a brand new owner-built, 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath masonry villa located in the Coral Bay area, on the pristine and remote peninsula of Fortsberg Estate. Listen to the waves on the rocky beach below as you lounge under the shade of the gazebo, near the infinity-edge pool and the garden, and disconnect from fast-paced distraction. An expansive paved driveway takes you from the dirt road to The Secret Seashell, with a majestic view of the ocean and the curvilinear coastline of Coral Bay. The stately great room is designed with an open Caribbean-style floor plan, with a fully equipped and modern kitchen looking out into a gracious sitting area and the breathtaking private view beyond. The covered masonry balcony is a luxurious place to soak in the peaceful surroundings. The view is entirely private, with not another house in close proximity, enveloped by the purifying elements of trees, water and sky.

The master bedroom upstairs has a large outdoor shower connected to a private bath. With luxury linens, and every amenity, including beach chairs and coolers, Secret Seashell is waiting to be discovered as the ideal vacation home.
