Alligator Point house description

This house is seven years old and sits right on the white sandy beach of the Gulf of Mexico at Alligator Point. Don't worry there are no alligators only a narrow peninsula that resembles an alligator!. We just recently added a tandem kayak for our guests to use, lots of fun; be sure to wear your life vests.

Located just South of Tallahassee, Alligator Point is a non-commercial beach made up of single family vacation homes. There are no commercial enterprises(other than the marina)on the peninsula. Most the time you feel like you have a private beach all to yourself. It's like taking a step back in time.

There is ample wildlife to observe, miles of beach to explore and close to restaurants and shopping. The fishing is great right off the beach or on any number of charter boats in nearby Panacea or Carrabelle. It is adjacent to a State Park and federal wildlife area with picnic areas and hiking trails.

This house is special in many ways. Firstly, it is higher that the surrounding houses and the views are outstanding. The living areas are the top floor and the kitchen/great room opens to a large deck. Part of the deck is under roof and part is open for the sun worshippers. Sitting on the deck you get the feeling that you are on a luxury cruise liner, only without the waves and other people. The design and décor of the house is a blend of classical beach house design and modern convenience. All of the ceilings are 10 tall and all of the ceilings, floors, and walls are wood; you will find no wall to wall carpet or sheetrock here, only natural materials tastefully selected and expertly installed.

This house was build by an Architect and General Contractor as their personal second home with loving attention to detail. It was built to share with families and friends. As a guest, expect your senses to be delighted.

Pets are not permitted.

                              Location

                              In addition to activities sometimes it's great to do nothing but sit and rock and watch the dolphins play or the boats go by. Due to the relative heights of adjacent buildings the view in every direction is unobstructed.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2007

                              About the owner: This house is special and we love to share it. The scenery changes by the minute whether it's ducks diving in unison or pelicans forming squadrons. The natural beauty of Alligator Point is unique and this house was built to maximize the experience. Spending most of our adult lives in the building design and construction business we knew what we wanted and are pleased with the finished product. The interiors are all unique and Peggy had a ball shopping for each piece.

                              Why the Owner Chose Alligator Point:
                              We wanted a place that we could gather our family and relax in a beautiful and natural setting. This house is built with the living areas on the top floor to take advantage the panoramic view. The use of all natural materials and the ten foot high ceilings makes the inside to outside easy and comfortable. All of the walls, floors and ceilings in the living areas are wood, ceramic tile and marble grace the bath areas.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              There is no better view on Alligator Point. One of the benefits of being one of the newer houses on the Point is that we are higher than the adjacent houses and we look out to the horizon and up and down the beach with no obstructions. It is common for us to spot eagles soaring out of the piney woods and over the Gulf to grab a fresh seafood dinner. With the binoculars you can see for miles and observe the shrimp boats and other vessels as well as sailboats and sport fishermen..
