Take a virtual walk-through of this gorgeous beach home, which has partial Gulf views and gorgeous interiors. Designed for families to share, with room for coming together and retreating to cozy rooms and nooks, this house makes a great home away from home. It also earned more than $100,000 in rental income for the owners in 2018 and 2019, with lots of potential for helping off-set mortgage costs. (See the LISTING here.)
Great curb appeal
Walk-up a brick-lined path to a darling front porch decorated with a handsome, wrought-iron lantern and a pair of swings that face each other.
Grand French doors with a transoms in center are flanked by two others, a pattern repeated on the second-floor porch for pleasing symmetry. Three dormer windows crown the front facade and ensure the top floor is flooded with natural light.
Fresh interiors with a classic-contemporary vibe
Inside, fresh interiors wow, with clean, neutral upholstery and punches of bright coral and royal blue and navy accents, as shown in this first floor gathering space serves the downstairs guest rooms.
Bright blue pillows in solid and prints dress sail white, matching sofas, while plush arm chairs in complementary grey-blue finish the grouping.
Great guest quarters with families in mind
The downstairs bunk room features built-ins that charm the younger set, with sturdy ladders and plenty of storage.
Classic ticking in navy-and-white stripe dress bunks surrounded by horizontal paneling. A whale print on pillow cases adds a little fun. Throws in soft coral brighten things up, while ship's lantern-style lighting gives a nautical touch.
A coastal landscape painting give character to the bathroom that connects with another blue-and-white guest room. It's a perfect arrangement for families!
Dressed in white linens with a bright blue, quilted comforter and fun patterns on throw pillows and pillow shams, the guest room bed invites you to relax. Note the seagrass detail on the white, platform bed, and the matching lamps on side tables.
Another guest room centers on an all-white bed that gets fun punches of color from geometric fabric on a bolster pillow and from the leaf-patterned blue wall paper that creates an accent wall behind the headboard.
Second-Floor Living Space With Panache
The middle level features the true heart of this home, with incredible architecture giving height to the gathering space and helping the rooms flow together with ease. Kitchen, dining and living rooms combine for a wonderful space to spend beach days--morning, noon, and night.
A handsome, natural fiber rug top weathered hardwoods for this grouping of neutral sofas and trunk-as-coffee table.
Bench seating combines with mid-century modern arm chairs at a farmhouse-style table for a chic, eclectic mix. Open shelving feels contemporary, along with the artwork over the fireplace.
In the kitchen, matching windows offer loads of natural light. You'll enjoy plenty of counter space and a farmhouse-style sink in the main part of the kitchen, while the fridge and double ovens have their own nook in a pass-through area, which keeps them from detracting from the simplicity of the main living space.
Serve meals on the amazing outdoor dining porch, with spacious table and all-weather seating for a crowd. Enjoy the outdoor grill, and views from other porches and decks. You'll see glimpses of Gulf waters and enjoy the community views from the second-floor front balcony, as well.
Master Suite with Style
In the master bedroom, navy-and-white patterned pillows top the all-white bed, while a coral throw pillow and cozy blanket provides the pop of color for fun. Surrounded by windows, it's an airy, relaxing retreat.
His-and-her, flush-mount sinks and round mirrors keep the look updated in the master bath, along with gleaming subway tile in the shower.
Third-Floor Bonus Guest Quarters
More evidence that this home is designed for families to share, the third-floor guest room offers built-in twin beds with areas for kids to play. Darling twin coverlets dress beds, snug between built-in shelving for games, books, and toys.
With its own bathroom, this top floor is really a haven, and the vaulted ceilings and natural light make it feel spacious and purposefully designed just for guests to enjoy.
Location, location, location
This beauty is just around the corner from a dune crossover to the beach and an easy walk to either the Dune Pool or Kiera's Pool. Rear storage provides room for beach buggy and gear.
