There is a hot tub off this bedroom. The Master Bath is enhanced by a two person whirlpool tub, double vessel sinks, private commode room, and a 5'x8' shower with 3 shower heads, 4 body sprays and a bench - fantastic!

Another master bedroom has a queen bed and private tiled bath with glass door shower. The third bedroom on the main level has a double futon and full bath with shower over tub right next to it.

The newly built 850 sq ft lower level includes another huge master bedroom with king size bed, walk-in closet, French doors leading to a brick patio and the pool.

There is a geothermal state of the art central HVAC system providing crisp cold air during those hot summer days. The pool is surrounded by a brick patio. Under the deck the patio is shaded and perfect for relaxation. The rest of the yard is your own private sandbox. The kids love it! Please take care not to throw sand or shells in the pool, however! There is an outdoor shower on the patio. Just added a new sand volleyball/badminton court!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: We came from NJ to Pensacola in 2005 to work at a radio station and discovered the beach! This house was about to go into foreclosure due to damage from Hurricane Ivan. The first project was to raise half the house to construct an ICF foundation. Our goal has been to use construction materials that will stand up to wind and water. Next we had a pool installed; what a challenge! We continue to upgrade this beach house and it keeps getting better. It is our primary winter home and we have tried to make it a home away from home for our guests.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  Pensacola Beach is one of the finest white sand beaches in the world. TripAdvisor in 2013 ranked Pensacola Beach #18 out of the top 25 beaches and the Gulf Islands National Seashore received a #5 ranking. Our guests tell us it surpasses many Caribbean and Jamaican beaches. The sand is soft and the water clear. When our Michigan based grandson first viewed the large white sand dunes from the car at age 4, he wanted to know how there could be so much snow in Florida!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Pensacola has over 300 sunny days per year. The house is light, bright and airy. Biking is great on the quiet roads, taking a slow look around at the changing landscape. Walking on the beach is pure pleasure. You can make sand castles with your children or grandchildren on the beach or in the yard and then cool off in the sparkling pool (after using the outdoor shower). Relax in the hot tub in the evening. Prepare your delicious dinner (doesn't everything taste better in the fresh air?) on our 7 burner stainless grill then just relax or take in a movie from one of our 3 large screen TV's or just laze around on the deck or pool patio having great conversations with friends and family. You will never forget the memories of your days on the beach.
