Private Homes house description

This vacation home is located on a secluded cul-de-sac on Blue Mountain Road, a quiet street which runs along the Gulf of Mexico south of 30-A. The house is across the street from the Gulf and fronts Big Redfish Lake, one of the Coastal Dune Lakes that occur along the coastline and are so rare they are found only in Florida's Walton County and remote areas of Africa. The comfortable furnishings and colorful decor provide a wonderful beach getaway.

This 2 story house is designed to be used as 2 separate apartments or a 4 bedroom house. This floor plan is perfect for extended family or two family vacations. Each floor has 2 bedrooms, bath, kitchen and living/dining areas. Three bedrooms have queen-sized beds and one has twin beds.

There are comfortable sleep sofas in both living rooms. French doors in three bedrooms open onto a wide porch, which runs across the back overlooking serene Big Redfish Lake. A deck by the lake offers the opportunity to further enjoy this peaceful spot and stairs take you down to the water's edge to a dock. A roof top deck offers a panoramic view of the Gulf and Big Redfish Lake.

A 4-minute walk to the dedicated beach access brings you to the beautiful white sand and blue-green water that has made the Florida Emerald Coast a prime vacation spot. Nearby, Big Redfish lake lazily flows through the sand into the Gulf, making it a perfect shallow-water play spot for children.

Blue Mountain Beach is minutes by car or bicycle (via paved off-road bike trail) to the quaint old beach village of Grayton Beach and the world class resorts of Water Color and Seaside, both of which feature frequent outdoor family concerts in the summer. Bicycle, kayak and canoe rental are nearby.

Exciting shops, restaurants and galleries are plentiful. A few of the notable restaurants are The Red Bar in Grayton Beach, Fish Out of Water in Water Color, Bud and Allie’s in Seaside, Basmati's, Nick's at the Beach and Local Catch Bar & Grill, all nearby along 30-A.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1983

              About the owner: My husband grew up in Panama City, Florida and I grew up in El Paso, Texas. We have lived several places, but have resided in Northwest Florida for 28 years.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              When we were living in Atlanta, GA. we built our house in Blue Mountain Beach to use as a vacation home. We liked the area so much we moved to Niceville, FL in 1985 and have lived here ever since. We enjoy having a house close to the beach for our children and grandchildren to visit.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our house is located on Big Redfish Lake just off 30 A and across the street from the Gulf of Mexico. While it is very private, peaceful and serene, it is a short walk or canoe ride to the beach and a short drive or bike ride to great restaurants, interesting shops and entertainment in Seaside and Watercolor.
