Property description

Last year 2 redfish and 10 trout were caught from the dock during a week in April and 2 sightings of eagles swooping down to pick up trout witnessed from guests sitting on the back porch this spring. One report of a 6' tarpon swimming under dock. (Note: I do not keep up with the calender so inquire about a period you are interested in.)
The home is 50 feet from the edge of the bay with a beach access park directly across the street 500 yards from the home. Inside are new furnishing including tournament quality billiard table, internet streaming for viewing netflix and other internet services on upstairs and downstairs TVs, patio furniture seating for 8 persons on the screened porch, new living area sofa, wicker recliners, and a elevated game table with four raised chairs ideal for cards and board games. Play pool, ping pong, bumper pool, basketball, bike ride, fish from dock, play cards, board games, enjoy surround sound stereo using your Iphone connected to stereo, connect to wireless internet. The home has central heat and air and plenty of room to spread out. Most people comment on how cool the home is when they first enter. 500 yards from the home is the sugar white sands of Cape San Blas Beach. Enjoy the sunrise over the bay and watch the sunset on the beach. The stars are exceptionally bright when viewed from the back deck of the home. My favorite nightscape is the full moon rising over the bay. Linens and towels are provided as an option so send an email to book the home and arrange for the linen and towel option.

The bay is viewable from each bed in the house. A 500 ft dock is a few steps from the home. A managed pristine environment of live oaks, palms, sea oats and sago palms surround the home.

2 upstairs bedrooms have king size beds. and 2 bedrooms downstairs one with 2 double beds, a single and optional trundle. The other has the walk in shower, king bed, single bed and optional trundle for extra guests. Each bedroom has a private bathroom with shower. To see more video of the home and the surrounding area visit bobzio com.

The main floor living area has TV and DVD player. Attached to the main floor living room is a large kitchen with stove, oven, counter top oven, full size frig with ice maker, microwave, dishwasher, blender, toaster, coffee maker, pots, pans, cups silverware and cooking utensils. Off of the kitchen is a screened porch with patio table and 8 chairs. The washer and dryer are hidden away on the screened porch. Each room has cable TV and WiFi access. Bring your IPod and plug into the stereo. A large handicap accessible shower is located on the main floor. The home is unique in that there are no steps from your car into the home. The Grandparents can stay on the ground floor and not have to navigate any steps.

There is parking for 3 vehicles. Boat trailers can be parked close to the property entrance on a private paved road set aside for trailer parking.

The home is a monolithic concrete dome. The concrete adds extra protection and energy efficiency. Amenities include wifi, tv, dvd player, stereo, central heat and air conditioning. Upstairs has the entertainment area with CD stereo, Cable TV and billiard table. On the back porch overlooking the bay is a ping pong table, weight lifting bench with weights, bumper pool table and patio table with seating for 4. A propane fireplace is located on the main floor great for long winter nights.

Bring a boat or kayak for scalloping, fishing and recreation. If no boat plenty of fish can still be caught from the dock. Try throwing a cast netting for mullet from the dock. A favorite activity is spear or bow fishing for mullet as they swim under the dock. Floundering at night is an activity for those seeking some adventure. Depending on time of year an eagle or bobcat may be spotted close to the home. Want to learn to fish the bay? Captain Hal Tarpley will pick you up from the bayrock 1 dock and take you out for a day fishing or scalloping.

The Bayrock experience is serene, peaceful and private. Here birds are singing, bikes can be ridden on the 12 mile bike path, snorkeling in the bay for scallops, windsurf in the bay and shelling on the beaches.

Golf and tennis are a short 12 minute drive away at St Joe Country Club . Horseback riding on the beach starts at the beginning of the cape Road. Freshwater fishing is a 30 minute drive at Lake Wimico via depot creek or white city.

The cape bike path runs into the St Joseph State Park from the beginning of the cape road about 12 miles.

Inquire about para-sailing, waverunner and pontoon boat rental. Kayaks and bikes can be rented just a short distance away. The owner will deliver to the home for your convenience.

Car: Necessary

Best location on Cape San Blas to take advantage of the Bay and the Beach. Vacationers using Bayrock can walk to the beach 500 meters, fish on the private dock, snorkel in the bay, have a boat tied to the dock, ride a bike to the stores and restaurants or enjoy the wonderful bay view from the porches. The location is private, serene and beautiful. There is not another property with the same logistical advantages.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: My dream was to build a futuristic indestructible earth friendly home. The dream was acted on in 1995 and completed in 1998. The home uses half the energy of a conventional home of similar size. The interior space is open and inviting. The surrounding area has been managed in a manner keeping the natural and pristine qualities in tact.

Why the Owner Chose Other Cape San Blas Properties:
The location of this home is the most ideal among all Cape San Blas Properties. The bay access is the deepest for boating from the dock. The beach access park is directly across the street with a large state property park that goes some 2000 feet making the beach very secluded. The water is clear and pristine with plenty of wildlife. If you want to be surrounded by natural beauty and solitude then this is the best choice and still be able to visit all the modern restaurants, stores and beaches.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Most unique benefit of vacationing at Bayrock is the serenity, abundance of birdlife and opportunity to spot an eagle, see a bobcat walk by, fish from the dock, see porpoises at the beach, catch tarpin in the bay or do nothing at all. The Cape is a sanctuary for wildlife. Oh yes the Cape Palms Park beach access park is directly across the street.
