Welcome to Puffin Place! Completely refreshed for summer 2016: fully repainted interior (walls, ceilings, trim), new hardwood flooring upstairs, new kitchen and foyer tile, updated bathrooms, new sleeper sofa, and more! Puffin Place pampers you with panoramic ocean and marsh views, direct beach access from a boardwalk in your back yard, an exceptional kitchen, WiFi , extensive DVD, book, puzzle and board game libraries, cable or Internet television in all bedrooms, propane gas and charcoal grill, and more! And plenty of room to spread out with 3 bedrooms, 3 updated baths, den that doubles as a 4th bedroom, open living dining area, screened porch, 2 open decks, and a top notch kitchen.

You’ll enter Puffin Place through a covered front porch, with four chairs (2 rockers) and a small table for resting your beverage, where you can enjoy ever changing views of the tidal marsh. On entering the home you will love the open floor plan with great flow through the kitchen, dining and living areas that lead into the inviting screened porch through sliding glass doors. The living area offers ample seating with a large sofa, a loveseat, and two occasional chairs. The gas fireplace makes this an ideal spot to cocoon in winter. A generously sized dining table comfortably seats six to eight, with six dining chairs, and two lightweight side chairs stored in the adjacent den. When you have had enough sun, you can settle into the living area and enjoy the 32 inch flat screen cable television, DVD and VHS players, stereo radio/CD player, and DVD, VHS and CD libraries, all beautifully concealed behind the doors of the entertainment armoire. The living area opens onto the screened porch where the dinette set under the ceiling fan invites you to relax and enjoy the stunning view. The screened porch then opens onto a small open deck with a mesmerizing 180 degree view across gently waving sea oats on grass covered dunes to the sparkling ocean beyond. Stairs off of the deck take you down for quick access to the boardwalk that starts right in your back yard. A propane grill is available for your use, and a large picnic table is tucked into the shade of the carport.

The den on the main floor boasts a 50 inch flat screen cable television with a DVD player. This large room also has a new sleeper sofa (2016), great views of the marsh, and a comfy chairs perfect for settling in with a good book. And Puffin Place provides dozens of books for your reading pleasure…both fiction and non fiction including numerous books devoted to the surrounding area, history, and nature. The den can easily double as a fourth bedroom, with the sleeper sofa, its own closet, large chest of drawers, and convenient location adjacent to a completely renovated bath with a custom walk-in shower.

If you like to cook, you will flip for the well equipped kitchen with granite counter tops offering plenty of workspace, an undermount double bowl stainless steel sink with Moen faucet, maple French provincial cabinets, stainless steel range, and a top of the line stainless steel Samsung French door refrigerator with a wine cooler drawer and bottom drawer freezer compartment. This is truly a “cook’s kitchen” with not just all the standard cookware, tableware and small appliances, but also a Kitchen Aid stand mixer, a Cuisinart 14 cup food processor, a stainless steel fish poacher, cookbooks, pots and pans of all sizes and types, a restaurant style stainless steel four slice toaster, DeLonghi toaster oven, Cuisinart coffee maker, Oster 16 speed blender, Wusthof knives and sharpener, and beautiful, unique dishes and serving pieces. Oh, and did we mention the view? You can stand at the kitchen sink and look straight through the living/dining area and screened porch to the dunes and ocean beyond! Two bar stools on the dining table side of the kitchen pass-through make that a great spot for a casual meal or sipping a glass of your favorite beverage while chatting with the cook. There also is a laundry room with a full sized washing machine and dryer on this floor.

Conveniently located on this main level is the master bedroom suite. With a queen sleigh bed, charming vintage furnishings, and a 32” flat screen Internet (Roku) television, the master is on the ocean side of the home with beautiful ocean views, and opens directly to the screened porch. What a great way to wake up in the morning! A fully renovated en suite bath featuring custom river rock flooring completes the master suite.

Upstairs are two large bedrooms each with a reading nook, and a third full bath that is ideally located off of the landing that separates the two bedrooms. This bath has been updated with new river rock flooring, new lighting, new vanity and counter top, and a new subway tile tub surround. Spacious guest bedroom1 boasts a beautiful king sized sleigh bed, 32” Internet television (Roku), and in the dormer alcove a comfy arm chair and ottoman provide a nice private spot for reading or relaxing. There is a lovely marsh view from the alcove window, and a wide blade ceiling fan keeps the breeze circulating for restful sleep. Guest bedroom2 is a perfect children’s room with a 32” cable television and two twin beds. A dormer sitting area with a stunning ocean view offers a snugly overstuffed chair with ottoman, and shelves of books at arm’s length. This bedroom also offers a wide blade ceiling fan for sleeping comfort. On the landing between the bedrooms is a bookcase filled with games and books.

The Pelican Point duplex homes are the southern-most homes on Harbor Island....a single row of elevated duplex houses facing the ocean to the east and an expansive tidal marsh to the west. Private boardwalks, for Pelican Point owners and guests, are scattered among the homes and one is just steps away from your back deck. A 5 minute walk on the boardwalk will take you to the beach. Harbor Island offers abundant natural beauty with over two miles of private beach with gentle surf, dolphins and seabirds, and rolling sand dunes covered with sea oats and myrtle. If you are lucky and the time is right you may even see protected sea turtle hatchlings headed for the ocean one night. All guests have access to the Harbor Island Beach and Racquet Club facilities: an Olympic sized pool overlooking the marshes of the Harbor River with fabulous sunset views, a kiddie pool, sand volleyball court, 1/2 court basketball, children's playground, fitness center, tennis courts and sundries shop. A perfect place for a family vacation or relaxing romantic retreat, Puffin Place is waiting to welcome you to beautiful, private, Harbor Island.
