Mexico Beach townhome description

Arrive at High Cotton in time to set the sun with covered parking and 2 entrances. Take a chair& drink and follow the sandy path bordered by sea oats & dunes to the wide expanse of sugar white sand. You're on the beach more quickly than from many beachfront condos with your feet hitting the sand in only 20 steps from the driveway.
The townhouse is a duplex but built as a separate structure & is the unit closer to the beach. 3 stories high, it includes 2 stories (1100 sq ft) over parking, a patio style area & laundry room. Open the door to a brilliant panorama of sand & sea. Upstairs, you are welcomed by colorful art, comfortable furnishings, & freshly painted interiors. Bali shades can be lowered from top or raised from bottom providing privacy as well as breathtaking vistas from every window. Ceiling fans are in every room. The 2 decks are each a generous 10'x16'.
Bedrooms/Baths
Upstairs, fall asleep to the sounds of waves & awaken to breezes & seagulls. In the master bedroom, sleep late, lay back & enjoy the ocean view from the queen bed. There is also a private deck/balcony where the southern exposure allows sunbathing-even on chilly afternoons.The moon & a gazillion stars are clearly visible at night without the competition of traffic lights(there are none in MCB!) or neon lighting of theme parks & hotels. 2 double beds are in the second bedroom. Linens of 100% cotton 250+ count & new Serta mattresses assure a peaceful night's rest or a lazy afternoon nap. One full bath is upstairs and another full bath is on the main floor. The half bath in the laundry room on ground level is convenient for any quick dashes from beach. There is also an area to shower or hose off sand in the covered lower level.
Dining
There is a fully equipped kitchen with built-in microwave & dishwasher, as well as toaster & coffee maker.You can choose to eat inside or dine on the deck with beautiful views of the ocean & beach while kids eat downstairs on the ground level. Relax with appetizers& drinks on either of 2 decks. Have coffee while enjoying the sunrise upstairs on master bedroom balcony. A charcoal grill is downstairs with protection from afternoon showers. Relax while grilling your fresh catch & enjoy the ocean view & breeze swinging in the porch swing. There's an extra table & chairs on this level as well.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1995

              About the owner: Hi! We live on a farm in southwest Georgia and friends & family call us gogo & Ace. Ace is a farmer growing primarily peanuts,corn, wheat and soybeans. Gogo's a school psychologist, recently retired. We optimistically named beach house 'High Cotton' as we purchased it our first year planting cotton in 1995 (Beach house is also very tall). Gogo thought we'd get to move to the beach after retiring, but still working toward that goal.

              Why the Owner Chose Mexico Beach:
              We searched the panhandle for a quiet place to escape the crowds of Panama City and discovered Mexico Beach. Unbelievably this peaceful retreat is only 45 minutes from PCB's amusement & water parks. We also wanted a place within easy driving distance to our home with plenty of fishing. Many visitors compare Mexico Beach to the fishing village that was Destin 25 years ago.

              The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
              High Cotton is located a block off Hwy 98, away from the highway sounds of traffic & trucks. Beach side streets are quiet with very little traffic & dead end at the beach. Our place is last house before the white sugar sand. Growing up, our daughter & her friends enjoyed going to the pier or Tommy T's for ice cream. Both are located just 6 streets away & within easy walking distance. Parents can even observe their kids walk to the pier & back from the top deck! Other favorites are kayaking & shelling on the' wilderness beach'-just 1/2 block away on the east side of the canal & accessible via MB's Canal Park. Fish from the covered dock area or cast from jetties here. This undeveloped beach is part of Tyndall AFB & stretches for miles. Gogo also enjoys treasure hunting (especially bright, shiny things) with our daughter or friends in the shops & boutiques in MB, Pt St Joe & 'Apalach'. Deep sea and bay fishing or just casting a line from the pier or shore are Ace's favorite activities. He also enjoys playing golf at St Joe & the entire family enjoys scalloping with friends in St Joe Bay. Every beach trip includes eating oysters at Indian Pass Raw Bar!
