Top Designer, Bob Martin, Brings Contemporary Modern Design to the Ocean in the Palm Beaches
POSTED ON January 18, 2017 - 5000 North Ocean
There’s something about oceanfront living that calls for modern design. Perhaps it’s the clean lines of this style that allow the eye to focus on the spectacular beauty outside the windows. It may be the careful mixing of natural materials and textures that reflect nature’s bounty. But for one South Florida designer, it’s the perfect setting to create a masterful design in a spectacular oceanfront setting.
Here in South Florida, prime oceanfront property is hard to come by especially for people seeking that elusive combination of a new development with classic, modern design and direct oceanfront views. In Palm Beach County, Kolter Urban has found a way to meet the need for this type of property, building a new, nineteen-story, luxury condominium on A1A in Singer Island that meets these stringent criteria.
This new community, 5000 North Ocean, is comprised of just 48 luxury condominiums and is situated on an expansive 4.4 acres between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, overlooking 340 ft. of restored oceanfront dune line.
When it was time to begin the planning for this project, Kolter Urban was fortunate to secure the talents of award-winning designer, Bob Martin, President of The Decorator’s Unlimited. With 31 years of experience, a thriving design business and an international reputation, Martin knew how to make the most of this remarkable setting.
With so many years of experience behind him, Martin also understands the importance of functionality in design. That’s why the top-of-the-line fixtures and finishes he has selected are easy on the eyes, while also being extremely functional.
Kitchens come outfitted for the gourmet home chef, including highly-rated Thermador Kitchen appliances. Sleek European cabinetry offers all the latest features that allow for convenient storage and quality cooking and entertaining. They haven’t missed any of the latest kitchen design hot buttons, including integrated LED lighting, quartz countertop surfaces with full-height backsplashes and large social islands with waterfall edges that continue down to the floor, where large format porcelain tiles are included throughout all main living areas.
Ceilings here are higher than expected and each residence has a private access-controlled elevator that opens to the individual private residence entry foyer. Master baths also feature modern touches, with the look and feel of a luxurious spa retreat. Floating vanities with vessel sinks and quartz or porcelain counters lend glamour and style.
Martin’s eye for quality doesn’t end with the interiors. The drama of these impressive residences is reflected in the property’s amenities, as well. Upon arrival, the architecture of the stunning landmark gatehouse with raised arrival courtyard is indicative of the style and quality of the entire community. Continue on to the equally impressive Porte Cochere entrance and stylish lobby, all of which are fully staffed, and residents can rest assured, with Martin’s stylish touches throughout, their guests’ will have quite a first-impression.
Martin has ensured that the building’s clean and elegant modern style is carried through to the oceanfront resort-style pool and entertainment area, a Resident’s Club Room with complete catering kitchen & bar and an adjacent outdoor plaza. There’s a state-of-the-art Fitness Center with high-tech equipment and direct ocean views, and an Oasis Beach Zone which provides residents with a unique, private sanctuary.
These modern, oceanfront residences are priced from $2 million. The On-Site Sales Gallery is open daily at 5000 North Ocean Boulevard, Singer Island-Riviera Beach from 10am-5pm Monday through Saturday, 12pm-5pm on Sunday. Visitors can view the architectural scale model of the tropical modern design of the 19-story tower and experience a full-size model kitchen overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
