Tallahassee house description

Stunning sunset views over Ochlockonee Bay from the wrap-around screened porch and 200 ft fishing dock led us to name this place 'Sunset Therapy.' Less than a mile from the open Gulf of Mexico, this home is located on a half acre lot and is surrounded by tall pines, palms, and oaks. The area is all residential, with no giant hotels or condo complexes, little traffic, and room to roam. Within a mile walk is Mashes Sands Beach and state park, including public fishing pier and hiking trails. There are 3 marinas within 20 minutes drive, and a free public boat ramp within a mile where you can put in your fishing boat and keep it at our dock during your stay. This is a natural paradise to be enjoyed by all ages.

We purchased and remodeled this home in 2010, but its unique architecture and views must be attributed to the Simms family who built it in 1966. It features a large great room in the center that is hexagon shaped with 3 walls of windows and french doors providing a 180 degree view of the bay. The dome-like ceiling rises to 14 feet in the center. The kitchen, dining, and living room areas are all under this dome, and the 40 inch HD TV can be viewed by all. The master bedroom has a king bed and computer desk, and the guest side has a second master-size bedroom with 2 queen beds and a smaller kid bedroom with 2 XL twin beds.

Once you experience the unique ambiance of this home and the surrounding environment, you will fall in love with it too. And you will recognize why we named it 'Sunset Therapy.'

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: I am a research scientist and have been renting and maintaining homes in Tallahassee and 4 vacation rentals since 1998.

                      Why the Owner Chose Tallahassee:
                      We have several family members who purchased properties nearby, and we hope to eventually retire to this area. The main attraction is quiet living in a natural paradise with rapid access to the Gulf.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Natural beauty and fisherman's paradise. Within a mile walk is Mashes Sands Beach and state park with hiking trails and boat ramp. Keep your boat at our 200 ft dock, or just fish from the dock. 3 marinas with great fishing charter boats within 20 minutes drive. Great restaurants, shops, and other attractions with 10-20 minutes.
