Property description

Begin your St. George Island experience at Southern Exposure! Enjoy the scenic beauty of natural Florida as you drive thru the gated community of the St. George Plantation to your beach paradise.

A comfortable home with modern conveniences, Southern Exposure offers 3 bedrooms and 3 and a half bathrooms, a private swimming pool, and Gulf views!

Entering onto the lower level, you are greeted by two of the three bedrooms. The first bedroom suite boasts a Queen bed, private bathroom with shower stall, Jacuzzi tub, and morning bar with coffee maker. Sliding glass doors open onto the covered deck where you can enjoy the Gulf breeze as you lose yourself in that long-awaited novel or simply indulge in the natural, peaceful setting as you stroll along the wrap-around deck. A second bedroom with a Queen bed also opens onto the covered deck and has access to a full bathroom. Both bedrooms offer TVs and DVD players for your convenience.

The stairwell to the upper level opens onto the main living area with hardwood and tile floors. A fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops and new appliances make cooking a delight. The entire family can join in preparing and enjoying the fresh catch of the day, with bar seating for 3 and a separate glass top dining table for 5. Or, take advantage of the Gulf view and enjoy your meals in the screened-in dining porch just off of the kitchen and dining room. The attached sundeck is the perfect place to enjoy your morning cup of coffee as the sun rises above the Gulf waters or to enjoy an evening cocktail as you count the shooting stars across the night sky.

The living room offers comfortable seating with a sleeper sofa and a large, flat panel TV for your enjoyment, while a DVD player, CD/stereo, and an assortment of DVDs, books, and games are available to entertain you on rainy days. A sliding glass door opens onto the sundeck as the glistening Gulf waters lure you outside to relax in the warmth of the Florida sun.

A short stairwell leads to the loft bedroom with 2 twin beds and the best views in the house! A great space for children or teenagers, the loft bedroom also offers a private bathroom with a full tub and shower.

Outside amenities include a large, private swimming pool with adjoining spa and ample deck space for lounging, an enclosed hot & cold outdoor shower, a park-style charcoal grill and covered parking. Lush landscaping and a natural setting surround you, and with no power or cable lines to obstruct your views, you will feel enveloped in your own private paradise.

A very short stroll (approximately 75 yards) takes you along a private nature path to the community beach boardwalk, where your toes will indulge in the feel of the white, sandy beaches of the Florida Panhandle. Swimming, shelling and dolphin watching await you along the miles of uncrowded beach and glistening waters.

Additional amenities of the St. George Plantation include a large community swimming pool, tennis courts and fitness center located at the Plantation Clubhouse, as well as miles of bike and walking trails and access to excellent fishing at Bob Sikes Cut—all of which makes your Southern Exposure experience complete!

St. George Island!

St. George Island is easily accessed from the Tallahassee Regional Airport (a 1 and 1/2 hour drive) or the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport located in Panama City (a 2 hour drive). Quaint taverns, gift shops and restaurants are located on the Island itself, but just one town over (a 15 minute drive) is the fishing village of Apalachicola (world famous for oysters!) where you can shop for antiques, visit award-winning restaurants, see a live play and indulge in an amazing historic town.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

Why Plantation:
After many years of vacationing on the Gulf Coast, we have settled on St. George Island as the perfect location for that relaxing family beach vacation. The Plantation area provides a step back in time to the way Florida used to look, lush vegetation and natural beaches, making it truly Florida's 'Forgotten Coast'.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Southern Exposure is a beautiful property, recently renovated with all the comforts of a permanent home. A private pool with spa, and views of the gulf from the many balconies and porches takes relaxing to a new level. A very short walk on a private path puts you directly on the uncrowded beach, ideal for swimming, shelling and long walks. Late night walks have even yielded chances to view nesting sea turtles.
