Year Purchased: 2012
Why Crystal Beach: This property is across the street from our home. Shortly after moving to Crystal Beach, it became clear that we needed more space. Our entire extended family began visiting us in this darling Old Florida community and some of them fell in love as much as we did.
It is more and more rare to find one-level homes with a gulf feel, so we purchased it and have renovated it for our parents (hence the two master bedrooms). Very different people from very different places (Joplin, MO and Braintree, MA) our folks appreciate many of the same things this home offers: a great deck, easy access to kayaking and the beach, walking the dogs or biking on the trail, endless opportunity to read a great book with a gulf breeze wafting over you, meeting the colorful personalities you find only in FL, and a great game table for playing cards in the evening.
Our folks spend Jan - March here but the home is too special to not share it with others. So please come join us in this little slice of heaven.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This house has two TRUE Master Suites! Also, it is great for accessibility: This home was renovated with mobility in mind for our parents, who spend some of the winter in FL. One of the master showers is curbless. There is one short step up into the home (we can get a ramp if needed) and one step inside the home between the laundry/garage and main house.
There is a bike rental shop nearby. Paddle board rentals are nearby as well. Excellent area for kayaking. My mother loves to bird watch nearby at a local santuary.
