Property description

This unique and distinctive home is ideal for a meditative retreat for an artist or writer, a romantic getaway for a couple, or a vacation for a small family or group. Ever since it was built locals have called it the 'Treehouse' because of its beautiful, cypress siding and its multiple 'perches' - two large elevated decks and two private balconies. The views are stunning at dawn, sunset, or evening. Or, chill out under the lanai-style lower deck or the shaded, screened-in Florida room (with gas grill and picnic table) and enjoy the extensive collection of indigenous beach-zone plant life in the all indigenous, zero-scaped yard. Your dog can join you at will through his own doggie door and be safe and cool inside the custom, solid cypress fence.

The Treehouse is located at the beginning of the beach's residential section so it is quieter than a condo on the commercial strip, but still less than a block away from restaurants, bars, and shops. Though across the street from the water, beach access via the convenient boardwalk and the Gulf views are completely unimpeded by other structures.

The interior features granite and marble counters, tile and Brazilian cherry floors, solid oak cabinets, and teak, cherry, and sinker cypress wood trim. A large walk-in closet separates the master bedroom with queen from the master bath, which offers a bidet and an over-sized tub with a custom tile surround. The loft bedroom with a full has the best views: from the Gulf to the Sound, all the way to Downtown Pensacola. Another half bath and full laundry are below.


Keywords: clear, open view of Gulf; just 50 yards to beach; lots of decks; hot/cold outside shower; screened sunroom w/ gas grill; washer/dryer; art & literature library; huge fenced yard w/ zeroscaped plantings and doggie door!

Location

Visit the world-class National Naval Air Museum, take a short drive down the beach to historic Fort Pickens - with forts dating back to the Spanish colonial, Civil War, and WW I eras - and the unparalleled beauty of the Gulf Islands National Seashore. Deep sea fishing boats, parasailing, and jet ski rentals are less than a mile from the front door. if that's too far, watch dolphins come within yards of the beach from your deck or jump in and swim with them!, Kayak, surfboard, and stand-up paddleboard (SUP) rentals are all less than a block down the beach . If you want to cool down and rinse off the salt, venture north to the shady Blackwater River State Park for a lazy canoe or float down crystal clear waters and white sand banks of Juniper Creek.

Year Purchased: 1955

About: We are both fortunate enough to be self employed in professions that allow us the time to travel. We typically visit family or cruise on our sailboat in the summers, so our home is available then for others to enjoy.

Why Villa Primera, Pensacola Beach, FL, USA:
This property has been in my family for over 60 years. The original ground-level structure finally succumbed to Hurricane Ivan in 2004, but the Treehouse, originally built as a mother-in-law suite with a yoga studio in 2001, survived with virtually no damage. It's solid as well as beautiful!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You may be hard presses to decide which was the more thrilling experience: seeing dolphins playing a stones-throw from the beach or catching a practice run by the Navy's Blue Angels flying almost as close at eye level to the deck!
