RISMEDIA, March 13, 2009-Situated on a 50-foot by 199-foot oceanfront homesite in Atlantic Beach, this multi-family beach house with its grass roofline that is built into the dunes is a one-of-a kind opportunity for homeowners looking for their very own beach retreat.
“There isn’t another property like the Dune House anywhere else,” said Christy Budnick, executive vice president of residential real estate for Prudential Network Realty. “Architect William Morgan is one of Jacksonville’s most famous and admired architectural designers and his distinctive Dune House has attracted attention from all over the world.”
Designed and built by Morgan in 1975, the Dune House was one of the first modern underground multi-family properties to be built in the United States. Morgan’s goal was to build the loft residences without obstructing the ocean view of neighboring properties.
The residential property features two adjoining beach houses, each with approximately 750 square feet of living space. Both residences are designed with one bedroom, one bathroom and built-in furnishings.
The architect, who grew up in Jacksonville, is a Harvard-educated Fulbright scholar, the author of four books and the subject of two others. Morgan returned to Northeast Florida and established his architectural practice in 1961 in downtown Jacksonville. His designs can be found throughout Jacksonville and other parts of the Eastern United States.
