Crystal Shores house description

Wish upon a Starfish is decorated beautifully and is oh so comfortable. The large open living/dining/kitchen area is a great place for everyone to gather and relax. The teak floors make the home feel so cozy and warm.

With 5 bedrooms and 4 baths there's plenty of room to stretch out. Balcony's outside the main living area and master bedroom provide a nice area to feel those cool ocean breezes while enjoying everyone's company. The beautiful pool just down the street provides a nice oasis if you desire a break from the beach.

A large deck with ample seating and 4 burner gas grill provide a nice place to have a cool evening bar-b-que and recall the days activities.

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: We love the beach and mountains, but this area always keeps us coming back. We have children and a grandson who we love sharing our home with.

                  Why the Owner Chose Crystal Shores:
                  We have been coming to the Crystal Beach Area for many years and dreamed of owning a home here. In the Summmer of 2010 we found this home in the lovely Crystal Shores neighborhood and fell in love with it. The area is so quaint and quiet, yet so close to the beach.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love how close we are to everything - beach, shopping, restaurants, golf.
