Old Seagrove Beach house description

The Seagrove Retreat House is ideal to just sit back and relax or plan an active day on the beach, pool time or getting involved in recreational activities.

From the front door you walk 500' to the white sandy beach or step out the back door to your 20x30 private pool. The beach access accommodates strollers, wagons and wheel chairs. During the summer months the county staffs a life guard station with two life guards. We have provided two wagons, a few beach chairs, an umbrella or two and beach toys for the younger children. The pool at the house is surrounded by a sun deck with ample lounge chairs and tables. If you are not one to sit in the sun you can sit in one of the rockers on the covered back porch.

The first floor features a master bedroom w/king sized bed and private bathroom (tub/shower combo). Also on the first floor is a queen bedroom, a living room w/pull out sofa, a den w/pull out sofa, a full bath, large dining room and a large fully equipped kitchen. The kitchen has a counter/bar which hosts 6 stools and the new dining table has seating for 10. If you are into playing restaurant in the kitchen there is a double Dutch door leading to the huge L-shaped screened porch. There are 3 restaurant type booths. The screen porch also boasts a ping pong table and Adirondack chairs. Four ceiling fans help provide a nice breeze.

The second floor consists of another king size suite w/full bath (tub/shower combo), a queen bedroom, and a twin bedroom with sliding doors to the outside porch. The bunk room has two wooden bunk beds featuring a queen bed bottom and twin bed top. At the top of the stairs is a bonus room with a futon (double bed size) and a foosball table. The upstairs porch overlooks 30A with a view to the Gulf and is also accessible from the bonus room.

Most rooms contain a TV, DVR and ceiling fans. The house is on 3 lots so it is private and affords a large area for parking up to 8 cars or several cars plus RV and/or boat. There is a concrete play area with a full sized basketball goal as well as a tree-shaded area with hammock and picnic table.

The detached guest house that includes a queen sized bedroom and a living room w/kitchen area that can sleep 4. It is ideal for a quiet 'retreat' from the main house as it is located only 30 feet from the back porch. The guest house includes a full bath, refrigerator, stove plus washer/dryer. The living room has a sofa sleeper.
come and enjoy a great vacation at our beach house.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1985

                      About the owner: The 'beach' is a special place for our family. We have enjoyed going there for many years, long enough to see children and now grandchildren taking their first footsteps in the sand and chasing the waves as they come and go.

                      Why the Owner Chose Old Seagrove Beach:
                      Originally living in the north, we were transferred to the south and would travel the four hours to the Gulf for our family vacations. We first purchased a small condo but quickly out grew it. We had the opportunity thirty years ago to purchase this house. Thru the years I have enjoyed remodeling and am always redecorating and updating the Seagrove Retreat House. This past year all bathrooms were remodeled and new carpeting was installed.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      CASUAL, COMFORTABLE, BEACH HOUSE - unique and perfect for our family of twenty-two. We can all gather around for a true family vacation. There is a bed for everyone and table space for family meals and game-playing. Our family activities include biking, jogging, kayaking, sand boarding and watching the sun set on the Gulf. Special outings include a trip to the water park, crabbing, deep sea fishing and a stroll to Seaside for shopping, dinner and a concert on the green. The guys might even get in a round of golf.
