About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 9-12)
The views from this gulf front home are unbelievable! Walk off the deck and you are on the beach, steps from the ocean, set your stuff and leave it. No shared boardwalks, community access, or streets to hassle with.
This 4/4 beach front home has been meticulously constructed with sea grass green hardi siding, metal roof, vaulted cypress tongue and groove ceilings, wide plank Australian cypress floors, upscale furnishings that are beach (kid) friendly, artsy, in cool key west colors. The bedding is plush with luxurious linens, thick thirsty towels, and blankets. The baths all have Mexican sealed satillio tile, solid surface flecked vanities, and fun professionally designed tiled showers and tubs. There is a fireplace which is made with 850 year old reclaimed timbers from the Apalachiacola River, ceiling fans throughout and a kitchen to die for! Silestone countertops, stainless steel appliances, beadboard cabinetry, fully stocked with every dish, appliance, pan, pot, or utensil you could possibly need.
There are two master suites with beautiful views of the ocean. One master with a king bed has beautiful potterybarn furnishings in vibrant key west colors and a awesome master bathroom. 4 large windows overlook the ocean.
The second master suite has a queen bed and is designed in nautical style. Red, white, and denim blue furnishings. It also has it's own private luxurious bath suite. 3 large windows overlooking the ocean.
The third bedroom has a queen bed with cream distressed beachy furniture, beautiful organic coastal linens with private bathroom located steps away in the hallway.
Fourth bedroom is Kid's paradise with it's own funky artsy bathroom. Vibrant colors with twin over full bunkbed and a super cool hanging rope swing bed.
All bedrooms have flat panel televisions.
Check out the wow factor in the photos with the windows. There are three full glass huge picture windows in the two story living room that overlook the ocean with unobstructed views. The sun sets directly in front of this home for the most spectacular sunsets you have ever seen. You can literally sit on the front deck OR covered back porch relaxing and watch your kids play in the sand and surf.
This beach is incredible. Voted #1 beach in all of America (Port St. Joe State Park) three years in a row. White sand beaches, blue/green ocean, dolphins playing daily, loggerhead turtles, amazing fishing, and the infamous St. Joe State Park (where my kids find sand dollars the size of dinner plates)! You can wade in the bay's crystal clear waters at the park and find hermit crabs, sting ray, fish, craps, scallops, starfish, even manatees!
With all this I saved the best for last. You can still have bonfires (can you say oyster roasts) on the beach and even ride horses with the local stables. We have fished right in front of our home, caught dinner, and then cooked it on the beach. This is definitely old Florida, no crowds, beautiful sand and water as well as complete relaxation. You are going to LOVE IT!

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: We reside (Kelly and Gary) in the North Georgia Mountains in a 1850 farmhouse that we restored. Gary has been a home builder for over 25 years and Kelly has been involved in various forms of real estate since 1986. We run our lives in constant chaos and our only remaining sanity is when we can escape to the Cape!
Why the Owner Chose Port St. Joe, FL, USA:
Our grandparents were from the Miami, Delray Beach, Coral Gables area and I spent many a holiday at the beach growing up. Truthfully, once grown I never cared to own any beach property. We would vacation with other family members once a year to various beaches which always seemed to be overcrowded with overpriced restaurants and forms of entertainment. Then we visited the Cape in 2002 and loved it. The kids were thrilled just being able to hang out on the beach and explore the peninsula without any worries of crime. This is small town atmosphere with the most friendliest people around.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The kids spend hours fishing for crabs, finding sand dollars, snorkeling, hiking, swimming, skim boarding, EATING AT THE RAW BAR, hanging out on the beach with new found friends. Late night games, domino's, cards, poker, bonfires, camping on the beach, or shopping in Apalachicola. This is the place you come to reconnect with your kids, spouse, family and friends.
