Property description

Privacy abounds for this bayfront home on large one plus acre lot located steps from the state park on St.George Island. Fish from the private pier bayside or enjoy shelling on the beach gulf side, both only 300 steps away! We've named our home 'Gone Fishin' with a fish cleaning station under the house for your catch of the day.

Wake up to the sounds of birds, and watch the nesting eagles and ospreys soar from the back screened porch.

Launch your kayak or canoe for incredible journeys around the bay. Swim in our screened heated pool surrounded by flowering plants especially selected to attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Our pool is not visible from the street ensuring extra privacy.

This home is truly a nature lovers paradise. One small Pet is always welcome! Home has four bedrooms and two baths, with a very open floor plan and includes two separate porches for viewing the natural habitat. Bedrooms consist of one king, one queen, and two rooms with two twin beds each, perfect for two couples with kids.

Every bedroom has a TV! Games, books and puzzles are included. Living room has a DVD/VCR player and stereo. Kitchen(completely renovated in 2008) is well equipped for all your cooking needs, plus a BBQ grill, picnic table, fish prep station and enclosed outdoor shower are provided under the house.

House is located on the east end of the island very close to the award winning Julian G Bruce State Park. The east end offers an uninterrupted beach right to the islands eastern tip and is a favorite for beachcombers.

The island's bike path runs directly in front of our driveway ensuring safety for all family members. Plan your next family vacation here. You won't be disappointed.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1994

About: Hobbies include gardening, sailing, fishing , skiing , shell collecting and more We love the outdoors!

Why East End:
I fell in love with this area while traveling the panhandle. The nautical feel of the mainland, slow pace and pristine beaches were exactly what my husband and I were looking for. We don't like crowds or traffic and love kayaking, fishing and walking the beaches. This place is so peaceful. Don't forget to bring your kayaks or rent them on the island in the link I have provided. The bike path is great for kids - safe and is easily accessible in front of our house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We can launch our Boston whaler fishing boat in the State Park located less than a mile from our house, saving time and gas. We keep our kayaks out on our pier for instant launching. My husband loves to fish from his fishing kayak in the bay behind the house. Kids love watching the fiddler crabs on the sprit behind the house. Our dog loves to chase the birds on the dog friendly beach. I like to watch the spectacular sunsets from our pier. Our secluded private pool is surrounded by flowering bushes and attracts songbirds and hummingbirds.
