Double-Wide Beachfront Compound With a Midcentury Vibe

On the far side of the Miramar Club is a gate, behind which there are three houses. The largest—a double-wide, if you will, with 110 feet of beachfront—is 1583 S. Jameson Lane. Built in 1956, the house hasn’t changed hands in so long that last year’s property taxes were all of $7,573. A new buyer won’t be so lucky….


Bedrooms: Nine.
Bathrooms: Eight.
Size/Acreage: 4,741 square feet / .38 acres.
Price: $17.9 million.
Last sold: Not applicable.
Listing agents: Riskin Partners.


It’s more of a compound than a house, with two outbuildings across the lawn. The main structure has cool midcentury lines—the long, low-ceilinged rooms that keep the eye focused out toward the water. You’d likely want to update some surfaces, but the kitchen looks good as is.

And anyway, the point of a beach house is (a) to not get too fussy, and (b) to spend as much time as possible outside.

What the listing photos don’t convey is the sprawl of the house: it seems to go on forever, with delightful quirks at every turn. (I thought the Y-shaped staircase was fabulous, but it may not be to everyone’s taste.) The guest room in the fourth photo below, while oddly shaped, feels better in person.

The property is calling out for a huge, fun house party. And if the nine bedrooms aren’t enough, the listing points out that “overflow guests can always stay at the neighboring Miramar Resort.” Now that’s solving a problem the zillionaire way.
