Property description

A five minute walk takes the family to this uncrowded subdivision's private beach (Avalon Beach Estates - 2 1/2 blocks north of the Gulf of Mexico) with the pool and tennis courts only a two minute walk from this vacation home. Enjoy the beauty of the Gulf waters and the seclusion which enhances the experience. Our guests' most common observation, ''The pictures on the website don't do the home justice!'' Guests also enjoy the home's central location to the Destin business district and just minutes away from Sandestin and 30-A's Beaches of South Walton. This vacation home is located in Avalon Beach Estates, one of the few single family home developments on the Beach Road. This private home has four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a living room / attached sunroom with a fireplace. An open floor plan with a large gourmet kitchen includes a breakfast bar gathering area opening into the living room which affords family and friends time for eating, socializing and games. The house has enough private areas when one wants to be alone.

The expandable dining area comfortably seats eight with additional seating at the breakfast bar. Enjoy the spaciousness of the rooms and the completeness of the kitchen environment with its easy to reach accessories in a generous sized environment. Fourteen foot ceilings in the open living area provide a roomy gathering space.

The master bedroom suite features a king-size bed, walk-in closet and a large master bathroom. This spacious master bath has a separate walk-in shower, oversized double whirlpool tub, dual sinks and a built-in makeup area. A second bedroom features another king size bed, the third has 2 twin beds and the fourth bedroom has a trundle bed (providing 2 twin beds). Use of a gas Broilmaster grill is also included.

The 2,000+ sq. foot home with skylights was newly built in 2005 and tastefully furnished. Four tv's (55" large screen TV in the living room), two dvd's, and a washer/dryer unit are located in the home along with internet access. Upgrades such as 14 foot ceilings, crown molding, and granite countertops make your 'home away from home' surroundings comfortable and luxurious. The pool (which is cleaned on a daily basis) and two tennis courts are a few doors down from the home. Please note that this is a quiet family neighborhood and the home can accommodate a maximum of 3 cars.

Beautiful surroundings coupled with emerald waters and soft, white sand beaches make for a vacation you'll wish would never end. In addition to the beach you won't have to venture very far to enjoy many of the Destin and Beaches of South Walton area attractions. With just a brief drive you'll be on some of the finest championship golf courses and outstanding restaurants in the Florida Panhandle.

Shoppers can enjoy the newly expanded Destin Commons Shopping area and Silver Sands Designer Outlet Mall. Children will not be disappointed with bowling a game at Hurricane Lanes or Uncle Buck's / , riding a go-cart, or spending the day at the Big Kahuna Water Park.There are also excellent charter boats available for full and half day world class fishing adventures at Destin Harbor or a pleasure cruise. Numerous spas can also be found throughout the area.

If you are looking for a fun vacation, or a relaxing, beach retreat from your daily routine, the spectacular beauty of the white sand beaches, and emerald waters, then the comforts of Avalon Beach will meet your expectations. No smoking or pets.

Location

Car: Recommended

Two blocks west of the beach restaurant Pompano Joe's and a block and a half north takes you to the doorstep of our home. It is a quick walk down to our private, uncrowded subdivision beach with the convenience of the public beach bathroom and an on the beach restaurant a few hundred feet away. Take advantage of stunning sunsets on our beach walkover. The subdivision pool is just four doors down from our home. It's also a nice area for the family to gather for pizza with plenty of tables, chairs and loungers. Rarely is it crowded and it's impeccably cleaned on a daily basis.

Other Activities: Guests choose our home because of its central location to the beach, golfing, Silver Sands Designer Outlet shopping, Destin and the Beaches of South Walton on 30A. It is also walking distance to 6 restaurants. Some guests have even parked their car for the week that they visit because everything they need is right here in the neighborhood.

Golf: There are more than 10 courses within driving distance. There is a short 3 par course behind the house and championship courses located within a 5-10 minute drive from the home.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Our family discovered the Emerald Coast 30 years ago. We returned every year until finally deciding to build. We have enjoyed seeing the quality developments built in the region and appreciate the care that has been taken to preserve the natural areas. The mild temperatures of the Panhandle and the 'seasons' in this part of Florida set it apart from lower Florida. The rich history and the wonderful features of the area make the Destin area a unique family vacation spot.

Why the Owner Chose Miramar Beach:
The beauty of the area first drew us to the Panhandle along with the many amenities. The magnificent beaches, the emerald green of the Gulf, fantastic golfing, shopping, art and culture meant that there were activities for every member of the family to enjoy. The diversity of the area is unparalleled along with the friendliness of the local population

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The splendor of the beaches ever changing colors brings a calm to one's spirit. Our subdivision's private beach is another special amenity. The boardwalk, which fronts the subdivision runs along the Gulf for miles providing the perfect path for walking and jogging. Shopping at the designer outlet stores, Destin Commons, Sandestin Hilton and the upscale shops on 98 are a favorite pastime along with visiting antique and quality consignment stores. Golfing at more than 10 neighborhood courses (ranging from championship to a 9 hole short course) offers duffers a great deal of choice. Fishing on both the Gulf of Mexico and the Bay area provide yet another diversion for both adults and children. Five great restaurants (3 located on the beach) are within walking distance. Amusement parks, the Gulfarium, bowling, and movie theaters for the children are close and if needed, immediate medical care is just 3 blocks north of our home with the newly constructed Sacred Heart Hospital just four miles away.
