Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We built this, our dream home, on the Gulf of Mexico after we bought the lot from the St. Joe Company in 2006 when Windmark Beach was developed. We were one of the first homes in Windmark Beach Phase I. Twin baby boys arrived a few years later so had to move back to the Midwest and now selectively rent our home in Windmark to special guests. We love Windmark Beach and spent almost ten years living there and enjoying this amazing and relatively unknown piece of Florida paradise. We aspired to make the home a truly special place and it turned out to be just that. Someday we plan to retire there. The views are amazing, unlike anywhere else we’ve been. The wildlife too and the water and the white squeaky sand...all special place indeed. The colors we chose for the home are fun and vibrant and the home just has a special, warm, laid-back vibe that people love.

Why the Owner Chose Port St. Joe, FL, USA:
We decided to build a one-of-a-kind beach home in Windmark Beach, one of the most dramatic vacation destinations on the Gulf of Mexico. The beaches in front of our home are quiet and uncluttered and feature beautiful white sugar sand bordered by Southern pine trees and natural vegetation. You can really get away here. The nearby Village Center at Windmark Beach provides a fitness center (daily and weekly passes are available) and connects to our community via a beautifully manicured 1.4 mile walking and running path with multiple access points and views of the Gulf of Mexico which is only a few short footsteps away. The Gulf of Mexico provides amazing cooling breezes in the summer and helps moderate the temperature in the winter. Wildlife is everywhere: Fish, rays, dolphin, hawks, osprey, bald eagles, deer, bobcat, sea turtles and more. The combination of white sand and tall pine trees has a very dramatic effect - it must be experienced to fully appreciate how beautiful and calming it is and you get this immediate feeling of being a hundred miles from civilization. Windmark Phase I, where our house is located, is gated so car traffic is very limited and you can walk virtually everywhere. The Beach Club and Phase I pool are located only a five minute walk from the house and you can reach it either Windmark Way or the beach. Fishing is good most of the year and three piers are within easy walking distance from the house - one is only 100 yards from the end of our boardwalk. Motor and sail boat rentals are available at the nearby Port. St Joe marina. Windmark Beach is sheltered by Cape San Blas forming St. Joseph Bay. The Cape helps protect the Bay from storms and high winds. The town of Port St. Joe is only two miles away and features restaurants, a supermarket,, dive shop, bait shops, banks, shopping, a library, US Post Office, FedEx & UPS dropoff, antique stores, and a public 18-hole golf course.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
1. Living areas (kitchen, living/media room, dining room) all located on upper level to take full advantage of Gulf views and surrounding nature. 2. Gourmet style kitchen with top grade appliances, dual fuel range, wine cooler, pasta faucet and more. 3. Walk-out feature and private deck for every bedroom - 10 decks total plus private boardwalk to the beach. 4. The ONLY hot tub in Windmark beach located on lower deck overlooking beach and private fire pit - hot tub is sunk into deck for ease of entry/exit. 5. Private bedroom, bath and kitchenette above garage with separate secure entrance, private viewing deck (with remarkable view of Gulf) and top of line appliances (including dish washer). 6. Two outdoor showers with hot and cold running water. 7. Bump-out dining room surrounded by glass to give that 'eating outdoors' feeling from inside the home. 8. Rocking chairs on the upper back deck overlooking the Gulf. 9. Soaker tub in Master Bedroom with private TV/DVD player along with all bath lighting controlled from tub. 10. Expansive multi-head shower in master bath room offering spa like experience along with soaker tub, ceiling mounted music speakers and more.
