'Plum Nearly' has recently completed major remodeling with new tile throughout the 2300+ sq ft house, granite countertops in the kitchen, new stainless appliances and tasteful decorative accents by interior designer Kathryn Kane formerly of DWR East Hampton NY including beaded board wainscoting & crown molding to give it that 'antique beach cottage' look. Ground floor has 2 adult suites (each w/a 32in LCD TV) - one with queen bed and in suite bath & the other with king bed and in suite bath. Upstairs is a spacious den where you will find new furnishings, 1 sofa, 2 love seats, a 40in LCD/HD TV + DVR + Sony Blu-Ray player for Netflix streaming and a hi-speed cable modem internet with wireless router for wifi service throughout the house. The dining table and breakfast bar provide lots of seating for your family meals. The kitchen comes fully equipped with practically every conceivable cooking utensil. Newly added in 2013 wood plantation shutters inside, aluminum bahama shutters outside.
The large wrap around porch off the family room provides a perfect location for keeping an eye on the kids in the private pool (newly re-surfaced) while relaxing in the gulf breezes or cooking on the propane BBQ grill and viewing the beach from the new deck extension. Master suite on 2nd floor includes a new (Oct 2013) king size Wesley Allen cast iron bed and a new Serta memory foam mattress plus in suite bath that was remodeled in Jan 2013, new 32in Sony Bravia LCD/HD TV w/internet (Netflix) streaming, love seat and private balcony. Newly remodeled top floor tower room is an ideal kids retreat with 1 twin x full bunk bed and another twin x full futon bunk bed, a private balcony and a TV/DVD/VCR + Playstation 3. There are TV's and video players in the other bedrooms, a large variety of beach and pool toys, board games, paperbacks and an extensive collection of movies.
Only 60 steps down the cul-de-sac to the sandy beach and no streets for the kiddo's to cross in this gated, gulf front community. Shops and restaurants are within 100 yards at Gulf Place + Grayton Beach, Seaside and Watercolor are just a few miles away. You can even find wild blackberries on our lot in the springtime!

About the owner: We live in the Houston Texas area, have 3 grown children + 1 special needs grandson and for us we've always had to have at least 1 beach vacation every year. We love our beach house & the area & go there for a visit every 2-3 months. We are always adding to & upgrading things and absolutely love it when we hear from our guests that they had a wonderful time. We love redecorating our beach house and just remodeled the 3rd floor tower. We especially enjoy doing BBQ on the deck and looking at the beach views and sunsets.
Why the Owner Chose Sunrise Beach: We have been going to the South Walton beach area for a long time and had always wanted to own a beach house. The ambiance and culture here are a perfect match for what our family wanted - beautiful beaches, friendly people, good for walking or biking to places. County highway 30A goes right by Sunrise Beach and was awarded a 'scenic highway' designation by the state of Florida in 2008. Gulf Place is less than 100 yards from our lot & the new Panama City Beach airport is only 30 minutes away.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Convenient to walk to Gulf Place, the beach in Sunrise Beach is private not public, several great restaurants near by (several flyers in the house from previous guests to give you ideas on where to dine or where to rent a bike or kayak for instance), playing or relaxing on the beach, visiting Seaside, shopping @ the outlets in Destin & Panama City Beach, crabbing at our beach in the evening, surf fishing, family get togethers, just plain relaxing, golfing nearby and enjoying the beach ambiance.
