Gulf Beaches house description

This home is a boater, fisherman and beach lover's paradise.

ARE WE THERE YET? is a brand new custom home completed in 2008. Prepare yourself for some peace, quiet and serenity. Leave the go cart tracks, arcades, stacked up high-rises, crowded beaches and traffic to someone else. You will not find them here on The Forgotten Coast.

ARE WE THERE YET? Offers you access merely feet away to world-class fishing in the Apalachicola Bay Estuarine Reserve. You can fish for Pompano, Redfish, Tripletail, Flounder, Jack Crevalle, and of course, Tarpon. While you fish, drop a crab trap for some local blue claw or hog a bushel of oysters fresh out of the bay from one of the many oyster bars.

If you get tired of the bay, drop a fish trap in the canal overnight and then head out in the morning to the gulf with your pin fish for some trophy Grouper, Snapper, Mahi Mahi, Spanish Mackerel, Rock Bass, or troll for some Kings.

For the non-fisherman, the beach is just a five-minute stroll and paved bike paths are just two minutes away. Beach access is available at every cross street. Premium shelling is just a short boat ride away to uninhabited Little SGI. Bike, Scooter, Boat, Jet Ski and Golf Cart rental is available on the island to further enhance your outdoor vacation experience.

You can also take your kids to Journeys of SGI and drop them off for one of the guided educational children’s adventures while you enjoy some free time for yourself.

After a long day prepare your fresh catch or visit Dale and Pewee near the lighthouse for a couple of pounds of fresh jumbo. Enjoy your dinner with a Mai Tai on the rear porch and chances are you may experience one of the most spectacular sunsets you have ever seen.

The exterior of the property features a private launch ramp with 30’ submerged concrete slab, private 20-foot dock, deep water access 75 yards to Apalachicola Bay, outdoor park style charcoal grill, multi-car covered parking, boat/RV parking, 30A and 20A boat/RV hook-up, two guest storage closets, four full-size decks (two fully screened), bay view and canal views.

The upstairs floor has a popular style open kitchen to family room and dining room plan, 2nd master bedroom with private French doors opening to the rear upper screened porch and full bathroom/powder room. Also included upstairs is a covered full-screened porch with bay and canal views and a partially covered front porch with sun deck. The gourmet kitchen features all stainless appliances, granite countertops, a large dining table that seats eight and a breakfast bar that seats three.

Upstairs entertainment includes two flat panel LCD TVs, Stereo, DVD Player, CD Player, Games, Puzzles, Video Library and Take one/Leave one books. This is a perfect place to spread out and relax with your family and friends.

The downstairs floor has a master bedroom with on-suite bath, 3rd bedroom with loft bunk (full size down/ twin size up), 4th bedroom with twin beds, 3rd full bath with tub, full length screened rear lower porch, full length open lower front porch, high efficiency washer/dryer, and storage closet. Downstairs entertainment includes an additional flat panel LCD TV and DVD player.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation named Apalachicola, Florida and The Forgotten Coast one of its 2008 Dozen Distinctive Destinations. Since 2000, the National Trust for Historic Preservation has annually selected communities across the United States that offer cultural and recreational experiences different from the typical vacation destination.

From dynamic downtowns and stunning architecture to cultural diversity and commitments to historic preservation, the selected destinations boast a richness of character and exude an authentic sense of place. Apalachicola is an 8-mile drive across two 4-mile causeways and features, fine dining, museums, live theatre, superb local shopping and an authentic working waterfront.
