About the Property

4 bedroom, 4 bathroom beach front home

Clean Slate is a beautiful 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom single family home directly on the Gulf of Mexico. The beach is at your back door and the water is just steps away. Our home offers a break from overcrowded beaches, free from the congestion associated with condominiums.

Clean Slate features tastefully appointed furnishings provide the comfortable environment for a vacation or retreat. When Clean Slate is not rented, we (the owners) occupy the home. This assures the best care and maintenance (and it shows). The home is very clean.

There are two master suites with two additional bedrooms. The home sleeps twelve people comfortably, all in beds (no convertibles or pullouts). The main living area is tiled, with area rugs. Each spacious bedroom is carpeted, has a private bath, ceiling fan, television, and more.

Fort Morgan Beach - in your backyard!

Car: Necessary

If it is family focus and quiet-time you seek, Fort Morgan is the beach for you. Off-the-beaten path, Fort Morgan's allure is undeniable. Single family homes nestled among the dunes translate into 'no-crowding' on the beautiful white-sand beaches. Nature preserves afford safe haven for wildlife and a birders' paradise. For those in a more active mood, championship golf courses await. A full service marina with fishing charters is just down the road. Great restaurants invite you to sample the local culinary treasures.

The land of Fort Morgan is so pristine. Pelicans drift serenely overhead, while pods of dolphins play in the water. The stars crowd the night sky in a spectacular display - you can actually see the Milky Way. To walk along the shores of Fort Morgan is to discover a place where time has seemingly distanced itself from the business of life. Perhaps it is the shape of the land, a long peninsula, which makes this place unique.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: In the old days of nautical navigation, a slate tablet was kept near the helm on which the watch keeper would record speeds, distances, headings and tacks during his stay at the watch. At the change of watch, the slate tablet would be wiped clean. The new watch would always start with a clean slate. In a similar way today, we refer to a new beginning or a second chance as starting with a 'clean slate'. Our family has found that we are able to come here, forget about the things that worry us, review our plans for the future and get a fresh start upon leaving. We hope you also can come visit and leave with a clean slate!

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
Whether you want a very active vacation or just want to lounge on the beach, Clean Slate and the surrounding area can accommodate your desires. If it is quiet-time you seek, Fort Morgan is the beach for you. Off-the-beaten path, Fort Morgan's allure is undeniable. Single family homes nestled among the dunes translate into 'no-crowding' on the beautiful white-sand beaches. Nature preserves afford safe haven for wildlife and a birders' paradise. For those in a more active mood, championship golf courses await. A full service marina with fishing charters is just down the road. Great restaurants invite you to sample the local culinary treasures. The land of Fort Morgan is so pristine, you can imagine being the first to discover it. Scrub oaks hide colorful chameleons and nesting robins. Nesting American Bald Eagles and Ospreys plunge from the heights to secure meals for their hatch-lings. Pelicans drift serenely overhead, then suddenly plunge into the water. Pods of dolphins play in the water. The stars crowd the night sky in a spectacular display - you can actually see the Milky Way. To walk along the shores of Fort Morgan is to discover a place where time has seemingly distanced itself from the business of life. Perhaps it is the shape of the land, a long peninsula, which makes this place unique. Or perhaps something magical drifted in on the tropical breeze and simply never left.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
At Clean Slate, you walk out to the beach on the boardwalk and plant your toes in the sand. Takes all of 15 seconds!!
