About the Property
5 Bedroom/3.5 Bath, Outdoor Kitchen, 5 Minute Walk to Beach, Pool & Shops!
The kitchen features granite counters, stainless steel appliances that include a separate ice maker and gas range, as well as a breakfast bar. The kitchen is fully stocked with a brand new side by side door refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender, griddle, pots, pans, dishes and utensils. A laundry room with full size washer and dryer units is located just off the kitchen and features access to the back of the home and driveway where an outdoor shower is located for easy clean up after a fun day at the beach. The family room located right off the kitchen has two new, comfy Pottery Barn couches, two new wicker chairs and large, new, flat screen TV. There are double doors that lead to the back, private covered deck. Tile floors that look like hardwood carry throughout the main living areas. In the breakfast nook, is a large custom built dining table with an “L” shaped bench with plenty of seating for ten.
When you walk through the front door, there is an open foyer with a powder room and a hall closet. The first of two master bedrooms is conveniently located on the main level floor. It features hardwood floors, a king size bed, large walk-in closet as well as a private bath with a jetted tub.
There are three additional bedrooms on the second floor, one of which is the grand, master suite which is separated from the other two bedrooms by a hallway. There is a king size bed, new flat screen TV, a large walk-in closet as well as a private, covered deck. A comfy four piece conversation patio set is the perfect place to relax on the covered deck. In the master bath is a Jacuzzi tub, separate tiled shower, a double vanity and breakfast bar with mini fridge and coffee maker. There is plenty of cabinet space for towels and other linens. Down the hall, also on the second floor, are two additional bedrooms, one with a king size bed and the other with two twin beds both with large closets and new TVs. There is shared bathroom in the hallway with a double sink and separate room for the shower and toilet.
The third-floor loft features a twin bed with trundle and provides a perfect place to lounge around and relax. This is a great place for kids to hang out, play games or watch TV. There are two sun decks off the loft, one of which faces north and the other west to capture sunsets. The one sun deck has two new lounge chairs with ottomans and a side table and a bistro set on the other sun deck. Both sets of double doors to the sun decks were replaced this past August.
Seacrest Beach is ideally located between Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach, placing plenty of shopping, dining and entertainment options within easy reach. Convenient tram service is provided during the summer and early fall months to the nearby deeded beach access.

There is so much to do in Seacrest and you are just steps to Rosemary Beach, between Destin and Panama City Beach. The neighborhood 12,000 square foot pool is half a block from the house and you are a 5 minute walk to the beach.
The beach is located across 30A from the main entrance. The Beach Chair Company is located on the beach and in addition to renting beach chairs, you can rent paddle boards, kayaks and even a fire pit!
If you it is a rainy day or you just need a break from the beach, Pier Park is a ten minute drive and is a premiere shopping center. Among the 124 stores, Pier Park features Target, Forever 21, Dillards, JCPenneys and Marshalls. The outdoor property boasts many dining and entertainment options: A movie at the Grand IMAX Theater… dinner, drinks, and dueling pianos at Rum Runners Tropical Grill…or live music at Tootsies.
A little further past Pier Park are two fun museums. Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum boasting galleries of the weird, strange, and bizarre! Ripley’s 7D Moving Theater takes you on an amazing, interactive journey. Across the street is the Wonderworks Museum is an 'amusement park' for the mind with 35,000 square feet of “edu-tainment”. The attraction combines education and entertainment with more than 100 hands on exhibits that challenge the mind and spark the imagination.

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Ken and I are both originally from the north…Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Hence, the house name “Sand In Your Sox”…our dog is even named Fenway! Growing up in New England, we spent many vacations on the beaches of Cape Cod and Narragansett. We moved to the Atlanta area in 2006 but still managed to take our three kids to the beach for vacations. Our family has vacationed in Seacrest for the past three years. We absolutely love the area of 30A and all it has to offer and we enjoyed the area more with each visit. When we decided to purchase a vacation home, the Seacrest community made perfect sense. Vacationing in Seacrest, is like going back in time. The kids are safe to ride their bikes, walk to shops, play on the beach or at the pool. We love being able to walk to the shops and restaurants in Rosemary or hang out at Peddler’s Pavilion in Seacrest (a two minute walk from the house). Our 'must visit' restaurants are George's at Alys Beach, La Cocina in Peddler’s Pavilion, Wild Olive, Cowgirl Kitchen and La Crema in Rosemary. Our children love the Sugar Shack, The Sweet Peddler, Orange Leaf (yogurt) and Charlie's Donut Truck. With all this eating, it's nice to get up in the morning and walk or bike the wonderful trail along 30A and take some time to explore the beautiful homes along the way. Seacrest is the perfect vacation destination for the whole family.
Why the Owner Chose Seacrest, FL, USA:
While on Spring Break in 2014, my daughters and I were staying down the street when we rode by this home. My older daughter said, “I love all the decks and the color of the house”! I noticed that it was for sale. It was definitely one of those moments where you are in the right place at the right time. We were thrilled to purchase this home. The location which is on a quiet side street at the front of the neighborhood is wonderful. You can easily walk or ride bikes to shops, restaurants, beaches and the neighborhood pool. If you have rented this home before, it was called Catching Some Zz’s.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Of course, we love the location of the home at the front of the neighborhood…close to everything! There are many things we love about this home. The layout of the home is different than the typical homes in Seacrest which tend to be a long narrow house with sequential rooms and no hallway. Our house sits sideways on the lot and when you walk into the home there is actually a foyer with a closet and powder room. There is a wooded lot behind the house. The front of the house looks down a quiet side street. The two master bedrooms, one on the first floor and one on the second floor makes the home perfect for two families to vacation together. The house is large enough to give families the space they need but the home also offers great areas to gather as a group. On our last trip to the house, my son brought his guitar and we hung out in the family and dining room singing and listening to him play. The first floor master bedroom is off to one side of the house while the kitchen, family and dining rooms are on the other side of the house. There are five decks…three of them covered and the two on the third floor are sun decks. There is a huge covered deck on the side of the house that wraps around to the back of the house. This is where the outdoor kitchen and dining set are located, our favorite "room" in the house. The second floor master suite is huge with its own private deck. And over Labor Day weekend, we watched fireworks from the two sun decks on the third floor. I fell in love with the kitchen's granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and gas stove. There is also a separate ice maker which is a must when vacationing at the beach. Off the kitchen is the laundry room with a door to the backyard and outdoor shower. Also unique to the home is a private driveway with parking for two cars and plenty of parking in front of the house. Many other homes in Seacrest don't offer a private driveway.
