190 Seaside Drive - Living Room

A Rare Opportunity

As you know, this sort of property rarely comes on the market in our community. In fact, it’s one of only 22 Gulf-front properties on site. 

Gulf-front Gem

This home has several noteworthy features, including a freshly painted white exterior which helps establish the coastal mood as soon as you enter through the front porch. On the second and third floors, the rear balconies have lots of space for you and your family to take in the breeze and Gulf-front views. The architect of the home, Melton Henry of Houston, created a reverse floor plan that not only gives everyone privacy, but takes advantage of the top-floor views. On the two lower levels, you'll find five bedrooms, including the master suite, three guest rooms, and an adorable bunkroom. The third floor features the communal living spaces — kitchen, dining, and living room, allowing you to host and entertain with a beautiful view in the background. With three floors, this home has both a stairway and elevator to make it easy for everyone to come and go. 

Inside, custom interiors capture an elegant, seaside look in a way that feels lived-in and natural. The state-of-the-art kitchen features stunning light fixtures, including an artful piece with dangling shells. A serviceable island with custom bar stools, stainless appliances, and an innovative backsplash add to the sophisticated look.

The kitchen overlooks the dining room and living room, where a stacked-stone fireplace with an oversize, arch-shaped opening serves as a focal point. Comfortable seating promotes relaxation and conversation beneath a vaulted, all-white ceiling with exposed rafters and a custom chandelier made with shell detailing. A full wet bar adds convenience for entertaining a crowd and a powder room adds convenience. French doors open from both the kitchen and the living room to the spacious, top-floor balcony overlooking to the Gulf.

Designer Joane LeBeff from Victoria, Texas, chose the custom light fixtures, custom tile work, and eclectic pieces that make these interiors special. She added vintage accents, collectibles with character, and exquisite furnishings to create what she calls “layer upon layer upon layer that results in that special look and feel.” She prides herself in creating spaces that don’t feel “cookie cutter” or typically “beachy.” “Nothing’s going to ‘match,’ but it’s going to come together to let it be what it needs to be,” she says, noting that fabrics she selects never, ever repeat in any of her projects. Her philosophy ensures this Gulf-front home is one of a kind.

Private spaces with panache

King-size beds serve as centerpieces in the master suite and other three guest rooms, while the bunkroom features two sets of built-in, full-size bunks and a built-in day bed. You’ll have plenty of space to house family and friends in style!

The first floor houses a guest room with gorgeous bedding and its own private bath. It’s adjacent to the darling bunk room, which has its own bathroom, as well, featuring whimsical, lime green round tiles in the shower. 

The second level features the stunning, all-white master suite. Here, weathered shutters offer privacy and casual, coastal style, covering windows that face a neighboring home, while floor-to-ceiling windows, framed with simple drapes, offer wide-open views to the Gulf. A private balcony offers a place to relax and gaze at the Gulf. Two other guest rooms with private baths, a reading room with a Gulf-facing balcony, a workout room, and laundry room with two washer-and-dryer sets complete this level.

The bathrooms, with intricate tile designs, walk-in showers, and one with a stately, stand-alone tub, have customized touches that will make you and guests feel pampered.

Extras you’ll love

Extras, such as the two-bay garage with a shower where you can wash off the sand and the mounted flat-screen TV in the workout room, makes this crowd-pleasing home easy and fun to return to again and again. And its central location along Seaside Drive make it convenient to both the Dune Pool and Kiera’s Pool.

The home has all you would expect from a Gulf-front residence at Cinnamon Shore—and more. But as we look at all our available listings, we always come back to that glorious water view as the best feature, and this home has one of the very best.
