Property description

This house is located in Phase III bordering the state forest. If you like the quiet while at home, yet want to be close to all the action, this is the best located house in WaterColor ! There is very little traffic and a quiet street for kids to ride bikes and play on. The lake and walking paths are accessed at the end of the block. We have a fantastic third for loft for the kids to slumber and play in. A great porch for the parents to relax and even catch a game on the outdoor television.

This residence is on the north side of Western Lake on the corner of Cove Hollow and Blue Stem Lane it is less than a five minute bike ride across the lake to the Beach Club. Walk just two full blocks down the street and you are crossing the bridge to Town Center. It is also just two blocks away from the Phase III 'frog' pool.

Professionally decorated at a standard well above a typical rental. One guest has described it as having a contemporary beach loft feel. This home is for the guest that desires, appreciates, and will take good care of a 'step above' rental. Please see the comments in our guestbook. Many guests have said it has the best layout and nicest decor of any house they've stayed at in Watercolor.

Enjoy the top of the line Wolf range and Sub-Zero fridge, ice maker, and wine cooler. Weekend chefs will enjoy the All-Clad cookware. Spices and condiments are kept on site for all to share.

Original art from the owners personal collection adorn the walls. Enjoy the canvases of local artist Justin Gaffrey, the 'Cuban Picasso' Jose Fuster, and Cubist- Almer.

Dine on the porch or enjoy the fantastic patio overlooking the forest. Use the outdoor kitchen, fireplace, and dine under the stars to complete a perfect day at WaterColor. Multiple porches and floors allow each person the freedom to get away from the multiple family- vacation circus when needed !

Three bedrooms and third floor 'bunk/play room' in main house. There is a bedroom with full living room and kitchen in the carriage house. Unique for WaterColor, the carriage house has a full size porch.

The four single bed bunk room is a great place for kids to sleep, play, and simply be 'lost'. They can be two floors away without getting into trouble and the adults get their peace and quiet.

King size beds in the master and carriage house. Queens in the two guest bedrooms. Four singles and a TV area in the third floor loft.

4 Adult Bikes are included.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Our house has been a labor of love. It was designed by Sharon- a professional interior decorator and contains many objects from our great travel adventures. I built it while we were dating, and we married there in August of 2012. We hope you enjoy the art, or at least ask, 'what were they thinking?' We wanted to do something different and unique for Watercolor, and hope we accomplished it. We love driving on Grayton Beach for sunset and the Friday ringing of the bell at Bud n Alley's. We love visiting Justin Gaffrey's studio to watch him work- and don't forget Sunday morning brunch at the Red Bar. Above all, we love that it brings so many memories and joy to our friends and our guests. We look forward to the day we can call 30-A our permanent home. In the meantime, we enjoy sharing it with our guests and making new friends along the way.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Rosa Beach, FL, USA:
We've looked at a variety of other lots and houses in Watercolor, and frankly we have not found one we like as well as ours. We love the location, the roominess, and the views. We don't ever feel like we are on top of the neighbors. It is much quieter than phase 2 or 3 of Watercolor.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
More features and amenities than just about any other house at Watercolor. Only house with a wine cork receptacle. Wine drinkers will enjoy adding to the cork collection and helping us 'fill the jug !'
