There were privacy concerns to consider as well, with the neighbors close by on either side of the relatively narrow lot. The ocean side was constrained by a geologic bluff top setback while the right of way of the private street further reduced the available lot. The original beach house had a myriad of existing tropical plants and palms, which would purposefully be re-used in the new landscape.
