Property description

Our price includes everything except tax. We are happy to offer 5% off to our military families and returning renters. Our turnday is Sunday so long weekends are possible! Located in the Plantation with 24/7 security, An Island Mooring is the perfect getaway for family, friends, or an event for up to 25. The house sleeps 10 comfortably with all bedrooms having private baths and opening to spacious, comfortable screened porches.

The well appointed kitchen will allow you to show off your culinary skills without being away from your friends as it is open to living and dining areas.
Room for two cars to park under the house and unload your luggage into new screened entry. Plenty of room to park your boat.

Built in 2001 and redecorated in 2013, the house has large living spaces with new flat screened HD TV with cable, Netflix WiFi in living room, BluRay DVD in every bedroom and the living room, DVD collection .

There are 3 king suites and one with two twin beds. The twin beds can be converted to a king. The queen sleeper sofa has its own half bath. The bedding is new and two new king mattresses have pillow tops and all pillows are hypo allergic. Each bedroom has a new flat screen HD TV and there are 5 BluRay DVDs (One in every bedroom and the living area).

All baths have handheld massaging shower heads and two have tubs for bathing little swimmers. There is a large laundry room with new washer and dryer.
Near the lighted, heated ($350/Wk) 12 x 32 pool there is an enclosed hot and cold shower Also there is plenty of both shaded and sunny space for entertaining. You'll have a great fish cleaning station and a park style charcoal grill.

The house is short easy walk to the beach along a well maintained path with no roads to cross. Enjoy our new sturdy beach cart, beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels, and toys as you play in the Gulf. Build sand castles and memories. Wet a line on the shore, charter a boat and guide, or walk to Sikes Cut for amazing fishing and breath taking sunsets.

There is a high chair, pack n play, and lots of toys and games for all ages.

Enjoy our 2 adult complimentary bicycles to ride along the paved bike trails or go to St. Geo. Island State Park and ride the off road trails. It has just been named the number 3 state park in the US. Rent kayaks, jet skis, sail, or power boats. You will probably see dolphins playing and perhaps one or more of our bald eagles soaring overhead. You are sure to see pelicans flying in formation and countless shorebirds. The star gazing defies description and the shelling is wonderful.

New world class golf is only 6 miles east of Carrabelle at St. James Golf Club. Uninhabited Little St. George is a short boat ride away and offers endless shelling and bird watching.

Historic Apalachicola is a short drive away and has many fun shops, art galleries, museums, and fabulous seafood. (Several who cater.) There are fish markets in Eastpoint and on the island if your prefer to cook your own or eat at one of several great restaurants on the island.

The house is not beach front, but there is a large open space in front. The only houses in front are those on the beach front road.

An Island Mooring is a great place to call home for a week or a month!

The Forgotten Coast is exactly that. Quiet and peaceful with lots to do but with a relaxing feel and no crowds. Florida's oldest seafood festival is Nov 1st and so much fun. The March Chili Cook Off is a must. Art is very important to the Apalachicola community with a huge Plein Air Festival in May. There is always something to do, but only if you want to!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Two brothers and their wives. One from the San Antonio, TX area and one from Rome, GA.

Why the Owner Chose Plantation:
Christmas of 2012, we spent time on St. George. After just a couple of days, we knew we wanted to own there. Searching tirelessly with a realtor, when we walked in this house, we immediately knew it was the one for us. It felt like home! One of the couples had owned a home on another barrier island for 10 years and knew there was nothing to compare with the pristine beaches, fabulous shells, birds, stars, wildlife, water sports, and the people. Now that we have young grandchildren, we realized that we wanted to be somewhere that is more accessible and with medical care readily available. St. George and the Plantation were exactly what we wanted.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The natural beauty of the lush tropical landscaping and no crowds drew us here.
