Private Homes house description

You have found The Little Beach House of Rosemary Beach. The Little Beach House has gained attention from around the world through feature articles in Southern Tour Magazine, New Old House Magazine, and Richard Sexton's book, Rosemary Beach. Located on one of Rosemary Beach’s iconic live oak-shaded wooden boardwalks, is the Little Beach House. This intimate and efficient home features everything a couple or small family needs for a fantastic Rosemary Beach getaway.

Enjoy entertaining or sunbathing on your own private wooden backyard deck with multiple sunbathing chairs, rocking chairs and an umbrella-covered outdoor dining table. Inside you find soothing beach cottage colors and beautiful wooden details throughout the cottage. The efficient kitchen features granite countertops and a complete set of stainless steel appliances. The kitchen overlooks the dining area and entertainment area with a flat screen TV and comfortable seating.

Select a book from the stairwell of the impressive wooden spiral staircase and proceed upstairs to the master bedroom and loft. Here there are vaulted ceilings, a full bath, canopy King bed, and an alternating step stairway leading to a loft that looks down on the master bedroom. The loft is a great, quiet reading space or an area for older children. It features a twin trundle bed and a television.

When its time to explore outside, step through your front door and follow the wooden boardwalk south to the famous white sand beaches or north for a nice stroll in the green of West Kingston Park.

Details:

* The main floor includes open living and dining areas, with a comfortable queen sleeper sofa for kids or guests.

* Living area has a large flat screen television with cable and DVD player. You'll find DVD's and movies tucked in the entertainment cabinet drawer. The DVD plays your CD's as well.

* The cozy, well appointed kitchen is fully equipped with
dishwasher, microwave, oven, refrigerator and freezer with ice maker.

*Custom built, dramatic spiral staircase leads up to the master bedroom.

* Master suite includes a pencil post king-size bed with luxurious linens.

* The third floor loft overlooks the master bedroom. It provides a Trundle twin-size daybed and an entertainment center to create a great spot for relaxing after a fun-filled day at the beach. The alternating-tread stair is a unique and fun detail.

* A large back deck with inviting patio furniture including
loungers, two rockers, and a dining table and chairs with oversized sun umbrella.

*Garden walls surround the private space. Scrub oak shade provides the patio with a great space for outdoor dining.

* Two car parking is available behind our large backyard deck.

* Beach chairs and two bicycles are provided for tenant use.

* Outdoor shower above the back door to wash the
sand from your feet.

* A dishwasher, washer and dryer for your private use.

* Much of the furniture in The Little Beach House was created especially for our home.

* The Little Beach House is half a block from the St. Augustine Park, with a fun water play fountain for the kids.

*We are located at the end of West Kingston Park, a beautifully manicured green-space with restful fountain and shaded benches.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Rosemary Beach is the gem of 30A and The Beaches of South Walton. Rosemary has european architecture and so many wonderful shops, restaurants, activities, and of course the beach. It is a location that draws people from around the world. The 30A area is known as one of the most beautiful places on earth. The white sand beaches and dune lakes are rare throughout the world. Many people come to the area year after year to revel in the peaceful beauty of Rosemary Beach.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Little Beach House is a true Florida Beach Cottage that we fell in love with the first day. The home is filled with light and decorated just as a beach cottage should be. The home offers a perfect balance of efficiency, privacy, romance, and marvelous outdoor spaces. The location is a perfect balance of privacy and convenience. It is peacefully quiet with the sound of birds and fountains as you eat outdoors on the patio or stroll along the boardwalks. There is plenty of shade in front and on the beautiful private patio. Outside the front door, you find a quiet green with boardwalks, reading benches, and a water feature. The beach is a 5 minute stroll along shaded boardwalks. You are steps away from either the Sky Pool with its indoor space and retractable roof or the Cabana Pool,the prettiest in Rosemary Beach. Town Center shopping and Restaurants like Wild Olives (http://wildolivesmarket.com) are just around the corner. Amavida Coffee Shop (http://amavida.com/amavida-cafes/rosemary-beach-coffee-shop/) makes a great first stop in the morning. Parking space is provided for two vehicles. At just over 1,050 square feet, Little Beach House is a cozy escape, just right for a wonderful retreat for couples, small families and of course, newlyweds. There are many large estates with carriage houses in Rosemary Beach. But, please don't confuse our home with a carriage house. The Little Beach House is a lovely private home on its own lot and provides wonderful, relaxing outdoor space. Designed by famed new urbanism architect Geoffrey Mouen (Celebration, Florida), with details for exterior and interior by owner-architect Floyd McCollum, Little Beach House was inspired by the small, waterfront properties of the West Indies in the Caribbean. Smooth, plaster walls keep the high-ceilinged spaces cool and clean. Hardwood ceilings and floors add warmth and depth to the spaces. Every detail is well-thought out for optimal function and elegant form.
