Property description

Our home is GULF FRONT, and literally steps to the sugar sand beach. It is perfect for your family's next beach vacation or reunion. Located within the very PRIVATE beach community of Gulf Trace at Grayton Beach, this home boasts gorgeous VIEWS of the Gulf of Mexico FROM ALMOST EVERY ROOM in the house.
This spacious home is perfect for large families or multiple families and is one of a kind, with private beach access and a back deck that is LITERALLY STEPS TO THE WATER. You can hear the calming sound of the waves 24 hours a day. The location of this home is absolutely wonderful, STEPS FROM SAND AND GULF and CONVENIENT FOR SENIOR GUESTS. Three large back decks (upstairs and downstairs) are a place to just relax, spend time with family and friends and enjoy the blue waters of the gulf.

The first floor living area has an open floor plan and AMAZING VIEWS of the Gulf from anywhere in the main living areas. There are 3 bedrooms on the 1st level of this home. The living room has a large flat screen television, DVD player and sleeper sofa. A large dining table, which seats 12, overlooks the gulf and the counter bar provides additional seating for six. The kitchen is equipped with the latest appliances to accommodate the most discerning chef. The coffee and wine bar include a beverage refrigerator, ice maker and warming drawer. Separate induction cooking stations make food preparation a breeze.

The second floor has another living area perfect for watching winter sunsets or just enjoying UNOBSTRUCTED ocean views. Our favorite place for reading or ocean/star gazing. The sofa sectional easily converts supplying two additional twin beds.

All of the newly renovated bedrooms feature bath access as well as flat screen TVs. On the main floor, the northeast bedroom has two queen beds and en suite tub bath. The southeast bedroom is a second master suite with a king bed and sofa sleeper, as well as en suite bath with walk in shower. This bedroom has access to the outside deck through French doors. A third main floor bedroom has a queen size bed with en suite bathroom with walk in shower and features grab bars for any guests that may require assistance.

A powder bath is tucked down the hall and around the corner from the great room.

The upper level, east side bedroom, features a king bed with Gulf views and access to the deck via French doors. This room shares a Jack and Jill bathroom with the bunk room.

The bunk room, upper northeast bedroom, has four extra-long twin beds equipped with individual reading lights. There is a DVD player with this flat screen TV so children can enjoy movies in their room.

The grand master suite encompasses the west side of the second floor and includes a king bed, sitting area for two, as well as large en suite bath with his and her vanities and a mirrored vanity table. The bath includes a large air-jet tub and double showers and the spacious dressing area contains built in dressers, clothing rods and a small safe.

Car: Recommended

We are located along scenic Highway 30A, perfect for enjoying the coastal lifestyle. 30-A is known for great restaurants serving an array of wonderful handcrafted seafood, steaks and southern specialties and everything in between. Many showcase popular area bands for nightly entertainment.

Shopping opportunities abound with anything from outlet malls and brand name stores in Destin to miles along the coast with enchanting little specialty shops.

Enjoy the tangible beach energy with seasonal festivals such as the songwriters, gumbo, wine, Mardi Gras and numerous outdoor concerts.

A bike and jogging path runs almost the entire length of 30A. The Gulfarium is a marine treat for children and adults. Numerous available attractions include snorkeling, fishing, parasailing, horseback riding, wave runners, and pontoon boats, just to name a few. And, of course, you can always relax on the pristine, white sandy beach and enjoy the clear waters of the gulf.
