WaterColor house description

A stunning home that features 2 living areas, 2 master suites, and 2 additional bedrooms, complete with plush, luxury linens, that sleep a total of 8, “Old Florida” is ideal for a family retreat or a group of several adults. This light-filled home has an abundance of windows, inviting the outdoors to the interior spaces. Pale shades of blue-greens and neutrals throughout the home create a soothing and cool décor in the iconic WaterColor manner. An original oil portrait of Bobbie the Cow, standing placidly in the crystal surf of Grayton Beach, watches over guests in the living room. Bobbie’s portrait was painted by a local artist from photos of her grandfather’s cattle when they wandered the beaches of Grayton in the 1920’s. Phenomenal oversized black and white beach photos of earlier generations of the owner’s family bring a touch of “Old Florida” to this fresh new home as well.

One master suite is downstairs, and the other is upstairs with its own private balcony overlooking the Park. Three bedrooms feature king beds and the fourth has built in bunk beds for two. All bedrooms are tastefully decorated, and are large with spacious closets. Each bedroom has its own beautifully appointed private bath. An additional half bath is downstairs. Each bedroom also features a flat screen tv with built in Blu Ray DVD player.

The open floor plan features a beautiful living room, kitchen and dining room downstairs, and a fully-appointed separate living area upstairs. Each living area is equipped with a 42 inch flat screen tv with Blu Ray DVD players.

Enjoy yourself in our fully-equipped kitchen, including beautiful, upgraded stainless steel appliances that make even playing in the kitchen feel like you’re on vacation! The kitchen is stocked with an extensive selection of drink ware and a lovely set of hand painted dinnerware, perfect for setting a pretty table for entertaining, and easy melamine dishes for children or a casual bite on the go.

Everyone’s favorite spot in this lovely home is the oversized swing bed on the fully screened front porch. Nestle in with a good book or a cup of coffee and float in the gentle beach breeze while being serenaded by a magical evening symphony of frogs, or a morning chorus of birds.

Our corner of Watercolor is uniquely situated so that there is no through-traffic in the area, allowing peace of mind for families with children. Guests step from the front porch onto the boardwalk leading left to the lovely Dragonfly Park Pool, complete with gentle waterfall and enormous outdoor kitchen and fireplace. To the right, just steps away from your front door, are the wide open lawns of the Park, providing a haven for children to run free, play a happy game of tag, or set up a lemonade stand and meet their neighbors.

Bicycling is the favorite entertainment of the owners and guests of this lovely getaway. Cruise by bike to the beach or the WaterColor Beach Club, both just minutes away. Or, enjoy a leisurely, early-morning or late-afternoon ride through the miles of nature trails that crisscross and bridge the water-lily-laden dune lakes, and lace the 500-acre resort. Visit all 5 of the delightful swimming pools, the grassy parks, and colorful flower gardens that WaterColor has to offer, and if shopping and dining are on your agenda, the shops of Seaside are less than a 5-minute bike ride from your front door.

Hurry to 87 East Summersweet as quickly as you can…we promise you’ll wish you never had to leave. Once you’ve experienced this magical place, you’ll want to return to “Old Florida” beach house time after time!
