Property description

Our family built M&M's in 1993. The home was expanded and totally remodeled in 2003. Carillon Beach has been a wonderful place to vacation and raise our family.
M&Ms is uniquely located on beautiful Lake Carillon, only steps away from the Gulf of Mexico and a stunning beachside pool. Two other pools, tennis courts, basketball and playground are a short walk away. Carillon Beach is an established up-scale family-friendly community located on the far west end of Panama City Beach. The entrance is gated and staffed 24 hours a day with security patrols. This area is quiet but near lots of fun attractions. Carillon is 2 miles from Rosemary and 7 miles from Seaside, Watercolor and Grayton Beach. We are located approximately 30 miles from Destin. Off Hwy 98, Carillon is entirely on the beachside, no need to cross a busy highway to get to the beach.
M&M's is a lovingly built home designed by Carillon's original architect, the late, Lloyd Vogt. A 2-story home of high quality construction, pleasing architecture but unpretentious. The home was built for easy living, enjoyment and comfort in a southern beach cottage style.
Features include: *Driveway parking for 3 and street-side for 2. *Front porch with 2 rocking chairs. *Outside enclosed rain-shower with hot and cold water leads into full bathroom. * Washer/dryer, linen basket with many beach towels. *Downstairs open living space includes fully furnished kitchen with eat-in bar space for 4, dining area seats up to 6. Plenty of seating space with 3 over-sized chairs, matching leather sofas, and table with 4 ottomans. Bedding for the sofas and convertible sleeping chair add sleeping space for 3. *All of downstairs has the gorgeous view of Lake Carillon. *Double French doors lead you out to the downstairs screened porch. *Screened doors lead out onto the deck just feet away from the lake. The deck provides a table, chairs and adjustable umbrella. *Grilling space equipped with a new propane grill is conveniently located next to the deck. *Outside storage building is well-stocked with 3 adult bikes, numerous floats, various beach toys/games and beach chairs. *Upstairs master bedroom with king bed, double closets and in-suite full bath. Features double French doors leading out onto a full-sized screened porch with awesome views of the lake and development. *Second bedroom furnished with queen bed and in-suite full bath. *Third bedroom has custom made full bed with twin on top, storage drawers on bottom. Also has unique built-in bunk beds with custom side steps. Third upstairs full bath is centrally located and includes a tub.
*Beach service provides 2 large umbrellas and 4 chairs located on the beach in front of the nearest dune walkover (March 1-Oct.15).

Car: Recommended

Carillon Beach is a quiet oasis of tranquility and privacy centrally located near some of the 'world's most beautiful beach's'' major attractions. Three miles from award winning Rosemary Beach and twelve miles from internationally acclaimed Seaside, Carillon offers quick access to the best of the beaches while offering a safe, family atmosphere in a gated community. Enjoying the beach's snow white sand and clear aqua waters is the highlight of any stay here. But, Carillon also offers three pools, including one beach side, tennis courts, and play areas for your children.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: Mike and Lanora Medley from Dothan, AL. We have three children, Margaret Ann is 24, James-Michael 19 and Christopher 17. All three learned to swim in the beach-side pool of Carillon. We enjoyed many fun night-time crabbing adventures in the Gulf. It's truly a second home to us.

Why the Owner Chose Carillon Beach:
Our family has vacationed at Panama City Beach since the early 1960's. Upon our marriage in 1985, we spent seven years looking for just the right place in Northwest Florida. We purchased our property in the early years of Carillon's development knowing it would become a special place for us to enjoy with our entire family.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The unique location of Carillon Beach and our property makes for a special place to vacation. Carillon is a safe, gated community. The development has one mile un-crowded beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. It also has 3 pools, tennis courts, a park, down-town area, and a Chapel that provides year-round non-denominational Sunday worship services. Carillon is a great place to enjoy walking and bike rides while listening to the beautiful Carillion Bells. Few places provide lakeside living while only steps away from the sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and beachside pool.
