For anyone serious about living on the beach, this three-story gulf-front home does it in grand style. Set back behind a low picket fence, the first-floor terrace overlooks the grassy yard, white sand dunes and glittering blue water. The breathtaking gulf views get even more panoramic from the upper balconies. Imagine awakening to the gentle sound of the sea as you step out onto the balcony from the second-floor master bedroom to greet each new day. The suite includes an en suite with twin vanities, large shower and separate jetted tub. The third floor is reserved for the uber-spacious master suite with wall-mounted TV, very private balcony and sleek bathroom with shower, double vanities and another jetted tub. The first floor has the main living area with feature fireplace and practical wood flooring throughout. It flows seamlessly out onto the covered screened porch. Sip coffee at the counter on the back deck and watch the sunrise. Entertaining is easy with a fully equipped kitchen, breakfast nook and a formal dining area. Outside, rustle up surf and turf at the grilling station while admiring yet more gulf views. Guests can make use of the bunk room or enjoy their own private space in the detached carriage house above the two-car garage. The one-bedroom guest house sleeps four and includes a kitchenette, full bath and living area with sleeper sofa. The property includes a 20'x8' courtyard pool.
