About the Property

4 large bedrooms each with it's own full bath, one half bath. Sleeps 11

Turn off Penny Lane onto Abbey Road to this professionally decorated 'Fab 4' bedroom, 4 ½ bath home located in the private gated community of Coastal Grove. You are just steps from the sugar white sands of Santa Rosa Beach. Ed Walline Beach Park public beach access is less than a 5 minutes stroll and is equipped with bathrooms, outdoor showers, picnic tables, and grills with a lifeguard protected beach. Or just step out your back door to the beautifully landscaped, private heated pool and huge 8 person spa exclusively for use by you and your guests. Please note pool and spa heat are optional for an additional fee. Pool heat is not available in December or January. Lounge by the outdoor fireplace during cool fall and winter evenings. Dine at the 10 seat outdoor dining table by the pool.

This home, 'Gone Gulfing', was built in 2007 and is full of top end upgrades such as granite countertops, stainless kitchen appliances, top quality Kohler fixtures, crown molding and 9 foot ceilings throughout and travertine tile on the first floor and in all the bathrooms. Original artwork by a popular local watercolorist is featured throughout the house. All bedrooms feature luxury hotel quality mattresses.


Living Areas: The open floor plan kitchen, dining and family room are great gathering places for your gang. Some might be hanging out in the family room enjoying the 70” high definition, internet connected flat screen TV while others prepare meals in the fully equipped kitchen. You might also choose to rustle up some nice steaks or grill a fresh catch on the Weber charcoal grill or high end gas grill out back. Cool off from those hot days with a refreshing Margarita for the adults or a fruit smoothie for the kids with the automatic Margarita machine.

The dining room features a large table for dining or playing games in the evening with the whole crew. Or catch a quick meal at the three seat breakfast bar by the kitchen. The sofas in the family room provide seating for 5. The washer and dryer are on this floor as well. One of the sofas accommodates a bed height air mattress that slips into the sofa for extra sleeping accommodations for 2 guests.

The Bedrooms: There are two master suites and two bedrooms with full bath. The 2nd floor John Lennon master suite has a walk-in shower and granite double sink vanity. The 3rd floor Paul McCartney master suite has a whirlpool tub and granite double sink vanity. Both the 2nd floor George Harrison room and the 3rd floor Ringo Starr room have a full bathtub shower. All bathrooms have travertine tile. All bedrooms have hotel quality mattresses. All four bedrooms feature a king size bed. Or, if you prefer, any bedroom can be re-configured with two Twin XL beds. All bedrooms are equipped with 42” flat screen HDTVs. The two master suites are equipped with Keurig K-cup coffee makers to get you going in the morning. Each bedroom opens to a teak rocking chair equipped balcony. Enjoy the sea breezes and relax on your balcony with a cup of coffee and catch up on your email or the news before starting the day. Listen from any balcony and you’ll probably hear those relaxing gulf sounds.

There are also 2 portable Frontgate EZ beds that set up in minutes to a twin size bed-height air mattress that can be used in any of the 4 bedrooms. Cut and paste this link in your browser to see how the beds work. https://youtu.be/NGF1XMfU400

The Area: Gulf Place is just across the street and offers several restaurants, an artist colony, live music many nights, boutique shopping, bike rentals, even a pharmacy in case you get a little sunburned on the beach. Stop by the coffee shop for a cup of coffee in the morning or ice cream in the evening. There is easy access to the 19 mile paved Rte 30–A bike trail to allow you to explore all the unique communities along the 30-A corridor from Blue Mountain Beach, Grayton Beach, Watercolor, Seaside, Alys Beach to Rosemary Beach to name a few as well as the natural setting of parks and dune lakes.

Come on over. Enjoy the sounds, the art, the comfort. Take your coffee over for a morning stroll on the beach. We’d love to make your vacation something special.

Location

Car: Recommended

Our location in Santa Rosa beach, avoids the high rise condo forests of Destin and Panama City Beach and the resulting crowded beaches and roads. Instead you have buildings no higher than 4 stories, and 2 lane roads that easily accommodate the traffic. There is easy access to the 19 mile paved Rte 30–A bike trail to allow you to explore all the unique communities along the 30-A corridor from Blue Mountain Beach, Grayton Beach, Watercolor, Seaside, Alys Beach to Rosemary Beach to name a few as well as the natural setting of parks and dune lakes.

But less crowded does not mean you give up amenities. Gulf Place is just across the street and offers several restaurants, an artist colony, cozy bar with live music many nights, boutique shopping, and bike rentals.

If shopping is your thing, shops ranging from quaint boutique shopping to large outlet malls are a short drive away. How about some great golf or world class fishing? They are all within a 30 minute drive.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I like people and I like to entertain. And I also dream of escaping our cold Pennsylvania winters and living at the beach...someday. So having a great beach home to share with others ticks all my boxes. I get to deal with nice folks looking forward to a great vacation at a beautiful beach. Our wonderful property managers and I get to host our guests and we do everything we can to make sure each guest's stay is the best it can be. It is very gratifying when we receive a 5 star review from a happy guest that has just stayed at our house. And then there is always the dream of living by the beach...someday.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Rosa Beach, FL, USA:
When you come to the beach, you want to feel like you are at the beach. You don't want to stay in house that looks like it could be in your neighborhood at home. This home has the beach house look and vibe. This home is close to the beach, restaurants, shopping and entertainment but still secluded and private. We just love to sit out or dine by the pool and listen to music without feeling like we are disturbing anyone.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with this home as soon as we saw it. So close to the beautiful beach and a beach access complete with bathrooms, showers and picnic tables. Access to the beach is easy with no steps to take to get down to the beach as there are in many other route 30a communities. It is a couple minute walk to Gulfplace Resort and it's free concerts, restaurants and shops. Close to everything but tucked back off the road so you feel you are in your own private secluded oasis with your private pool and spa.
