Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We built our dream home on the Gulf but twin baby boys came so had to move back to the Midwest. We love Windmark Beach and spent almost ten years down on the Gulf living in first Mexico Beach then at Windmark. We wanted to make the home a truly special place and it is. Someday we hope to retire there. The views are simply amazing, unlike anywhere else we’ve been. The wildlife too and the water and the white sand...a very special place indeed. The colors we chose for the home are fun and vibrant and the home just has a very special, warm, laid-back vibe that people love. It will relax and calm you when you walk through the door and water fountains located around the property both sooth and refresh.

Why the Owner Chose Port St. Joe:
We decided to build a one-of-a-kind beach home at Windmark because the Windmark Beach community is one of the most dramatic vacation destinations on the Gulf of Mexico. The beaches in front of the home are almost private and feature this beautiful white sugar sand bordered by Southern pine trees and natural vegetation. You can really get away here. The Village Center at Windmark Beach provides shopping and a Fitness Center. The home is located at the start of a 1.5 mile immaculately maintained running & biking path which leads to the Village Center. The Gulf provides these amazing cooling breezes in the summer and helps moderate the temperature in the winter. Wildlife is everywhere: Sea life, dolphin, hawks and bald eagles, deer, sea turtles and more. The combination of white sand and tall pine trees has a very dramatic effect - it must be experienced to fully appreciate how beautiful and calming it is and you get this immediate feeling of being a hundred miles away from any civilization. Traffic is very limited and you can walk everywhere at Windmark Beach. Fishing is excellent most of the year and three separate piers are within easy walking distance from the house - one is only 100 yards from the end of our boardwalk. Windmark Beach is sheltered by Cape San Blas forming St. Joseph Bay. The Cape helps protect the Bay from storms and high winds. The town of Port St. Joe is only two miles away and features great restaurants, a full line grocery store, marina, dive shop, bait shops, Bluewater Outfitters, banks, shopping, a library, US Post Office, FedEx & UPS dropoff, antique stores, and churches of all denominations.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
1. Living areas (kitchen, living/media room, dining room) all located on upper level to take full advantage of Gulf views and surrounding nature. 2. Gourmet style kitchen with top grade appliances, dual fuel range, wine cooler, pasta faucet and more. 3. Walk-out feature and private deck for every bedroom - 10 decks total plus private boardwalk to the beach. 4. The ONLY hot tub in Windmark beach located on lower deck overlooking beach and private fire pit - hot tub is sunk into deck for ease of entry/exit. 5. Private bedroom, bath and kitchenette above garage with separate secure entrance, private viewing deck (with remarkable view of Gulf) and top of line appliances (including dish washer). 6. Two outdoor showers with hot and cold running water. 7. Bump-out dining room surrounded by glass to give that 'eating outdoors' feeling from inside the home. 8. Rocking chairs on the upper back deck overlooking the Gulf. 9. Soaker tub in Master Bedroom with private TV/DVD player along with all bath lighting controlled from tub. 10. Expansive multi-head shower in master bath room offering spa like experience along with soaker tub, ceiling mounted music speakers and more.
