Property description

Florida's Forgotten Coast. A great place to relax & enjoy time with your family!
The Forgotten Coast at its finest... a peaceful retreat on Alligator Point. A piece of Old Florida charm on the Forgotten Coast. Enjoy the serenity and privacy of the bay on Alligator Harbor with private beach access directly across the street! This is a rustic north Florida family beach home enjoyed by family and friends for decades. Moon in My Pocket is a wonderful ground level, open floor plan home with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. This house is perfect for two families vacationing together.

WATER FRONT!!!
Situated on a large bay front lot, there are beautiful views of Alligator Harbor from almost every room in the house. The PRIVATE beach access just steps across the street is shared with only one other home. No need to walk or drive to public beach access! The beach has a covered “Chickee” hut for enjoying the beach out of the sun and it's also perfect for reading or relaxing under throughout the day and a great place to watch the beautiful sunsets.

INSIDE LIVING AREAS:
The open floor plan offers spacious living areas that include the kitchen, dining, living room, recreation room (with pool table!) and an extra large screened porch offering plenty of space to read, nap, play pool, cook meals together or just relax and enjoy a great day at the beach! In true beach house fashion, there are lots of windows and sliding doors, which allow the whole house to be opened to the bay and beach breezes.

KITCHEN:
If your family likes to cook, the kitchen will serve you well. The fully equipped kitchen/dining area has a professional grade gas stove with oven, two additional wall ovens, microwave, garbage disposal and a large GE refrigerator with filtered water and ice dispenser in the door. For family meals together, the large dining table comfortably seats 12 with an additional extension table available for added seating. There is a large dining table on the screened porch as well that is great for family meals.

LIVING ROOM, REC ROOM, LARGE SCREENED PORCH:
The recreation room has a pool table and seating area with large windows and a sliding glass door to beach access within footsteps from the house. The living room has comfortable seating for watching TV or relaxing and access to the screened-in back porch through sliding glass doors that provide a full view of Alligator Harbor.

The screened porch overlooks Alligator Harbor, has a dining table that seats 6 to 8 people, multiple seating areas and a porch swing. The most unique feature of the porch is the 'hanging bed', which is a platform suspended on chains - perfect for an afternoon nap.

BEDROOMS:
There are 3 bedrooms that will sleep 8 and all mattresses were replaced in 2014! Sheets, coverlets and blankets are provided for all beds.

The master suite, just off the living area, has a king platform bed with private bath. One wall of the master suite is a triple sliding glass door that opens onto the screened porch and provides a view of Alligator Harbor.

There is a second king bedroom on the opposite side of the house with views of Alligator Harbor and direct access to the back deck. This room is adjacent to a 'European style' bath area with the components aligned along a hallway just outside the bedroom door; including a sink, toilet and shower with two separate shower heads. The hallway can be closed off to the public areas of the house providing a private 'en-suite' bathroom for the second King bedroom. This space also includes the washer and dryer.

The “Dorm Room” is a unique feature of this home with four twin beds, two of which are Murphy Beds. There are two in-room sinks and a room divider that can be lowered for privacy separating the space into two 'separate' rooms, each containing two twin beds. This bedroom has in-room access to a bathroom with a toilet, sink and shower with 2 separate shower heads. This bathroom can be entered via a door from the Dorm Room and via a second door from the public hallway area. Closing the hallway door into this bathroom provides for 'en-suite' privacy to the Dorm Room. This is a great room for kids and if needed, the room divider can provide separation of the space.

OUTSIDE SHOWER AND DECKS:
Outside, there is an outdoor enclosed shower with hot and cold water for a convenient place to rinse off the beach sand and salt.

The sunset deck on the Alligator Harbor side of the house is a great place for morning coffee, sun bathing or an afternoon cocktail while watching the sun set.

If you enjoy fishing, you can fish from the beach or the bay. There is a covered grill area that includes a sink and counter. This area provides for a convenient place for fish cleaning. Close to the edge of the Alligator Harbor, there is a 'fresh-water' pond that will ebb and flow with the rains and provides a great place for bird watching.

You are truly off the beaten path at Alligator Point. The night skies are beautiful and daily sunsets hard to beat. You will not fight the crowds here and many days you may feel you have the beach all to yourself. Alligator Point is a great place to get away from it all and just relax!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Three couples partnered together to purchase this fantastic house. We are all professionals who live and work in Tallahassee, Fl.

Why the Owner Chose Alligator Point, FL, USA:
We know the previous owners well and have been visiting Moon in My Pocket for years. When the opportunity came up to buy it, we could not pass it up! The house has a wonderful history with many friends and family having enjoyed the house and beach for decades.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love all of the unique features of this house. The private beach access is fantastic and because there are only a few houses nearby the beach is quiet and private. The access to the Chickee Hut provides a place to get out of the sun and still enjoy being at the beach. When you come up from the beach there is a private outdoor shower for rinsing off. We have enjoyed prepping meals in the open kitchen and dining on the porch looking out over the yard and the harbor. Naps on the hanging bed on cool afternoons and even sleeping there on clear nights are a treat. We have had fun playing pool and watching movies, making even rainy days enjoyable at the beach.
