This is the home of your dreams! As you enter, you will be pulled in by the spectacular views of the Choctawhatchee Bay--this house was built to take advantage of the incredible setting from nearly every room! Even better--it was built to withstand almost anything nature can throw at it! It is a custom built Sater Design Collection home with solid, hurricane resistant Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) construction, hurricane rated windows and multi-slide doors. Speaking of the multi-slide doors, you can throw them back to open-up the house to the Bay breeze on four walls in the Master bedroom and Family Room, which have two sets each. The well-appointed kitchen is open to the Family Room. There is an extra-large step-up island bar, where guests can sit and enjoy beverages while (click MORE) the chef preps the meal. The dining room is a short distance from the kitchen, so you can host more formal dinners, away from the bustle of the kitchen. The wet bar, with under counter icemaker, is conveniently located adjacent to the kitchen/family room and your outdoor entertainment space. The entrance way is large and could easily serve as a sitting/living room, too.
The Master Suite is large and private. There is a roomy walk-in closet, as well as another oversized closet, on the way to the en suite bath. Double vanities with ample storage space, a private WC, a garden tub and large, walk-in shower provide the homeowners with a private oasis. Adjacent to the Master Suite is a flex room which could serve as another bedroom (there is a closet), office space or sitting room,
The other two bedrooms are located on the other side of the home. They each have walk-in closets and are connected by a jack-and-jill bath. (Have your guests stay in the bayside room so they can enjoy to amazing sunrises and views of the bay!)
When you're ready to move outside, you will find a huge tile and cool-touch, multi-level patio surrounding a large, recently resurfaced and tiled in-ground pool, with attached spa. The nearly half-acre lot has been meticulously maintained and landscaped to provide the feeling of a lush, private retreat. Most of the lot is fenced, with an area separated to allow for safe play of children and pets--away from the pool and Bay.
Beyond the yard is the main attraction--the Bay! This home is set-up to take advantage of all coastal living has to offer--all at an elevation that doesn't require flood insurance! There is a pier with a 10,000 lb boat lift.
More details about this sturdy, super energy efficient bay front home: the entire home is floored with easy care, neutral toned tile; the roof is sealed with foam insulation; the HVAC system is geothermal with an integrated water heater; the back patio has been plumbed for the addition of an outdoor kitchen; there are hurricane shutters for the bayside of the house (for additional peace of mind); the oversized garage has an easy-care epoxy finish floor and a generously sized storage closet (perfect for fishing gear and beach toys); the pier (shared with neighbors to south) was damaged in a recent storm, but when restored would provide access to a second 16,000 lb boat lift w/ concrete and Snap Jacket encased pilings; and, finally, newly installed solar panels contribute to the energy efficiency of this ideal home.
Don't let this opportunity to own your own bayside paradise pass you by!
