About the property

4 bedroom, 4 bath w/ additional queen sofa sleeper in 3rd floor family area

Sugar Shack is a beautiful beach home with wrap around 3rd floor balcony with spectacular beach and lake views. It has amazing sugar white sand private beach access just steps across the street . Beautiful new hardwoods were installed last year. This second tier home on a coveted corner lot, directly across the street from neighborhood beach access in Old Florida Beach, is a rare find. Watch the sun set from the top of the beach access, which enjoys one of the most amazing elevations and scenic vistas along the entire Gulf Coast, which include an extremely deep beach as well as the outflow of Draper Lake. The interiors are bathed in soft sunlight from its southern exposure. Its open floor plan includes a nicely updated kitchen and master bath. Its large lot is bordered on its west side by large neighborhood preserve, on which nothing is to be built and a community pool next to that. This is a new rental listing with brand new furnishings, new luxury matresses and bedding. It is in a family friendly, quiet, gated neighborhood on the widest private beach along the emerald coast.

This newly renovated, updated home boasts a huge master suite with king luxury mattress and second floor balcony. The second bedroom has a king luxury mattress and adjacent full bath and balcony. The bunk room has full/ twin beds w/ twin trundle. The first floor bedroom has a queen sized luxury mattress and adjacent full bath. Third floor large observation room has a full bath, queen sleeper sofa and wrap around balcony with amazing views.

The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and fridge with ice maker and filtered water. All appliances and cook ware you may need are provided, including coffee maker, blender, toaster oven, hand mixer. It has a breakfast area and counter seating for 7 for family breakfasts. The beautiful dining room seats 6-10 (leaf can be added). There are new HD flat screens in all bedrooms except the bunkroom. It has secure WiFi internet and cable. There is a brand new outdoor shower and gas grill. Bikes and toys are available in our large detached garage. Our community is 3 short blocks off 30-A and 27 miles of bike path. There is a 2 car garage and plenty of parking in a large driveway. This corner lot is very large and has plenty of room for kids exploring.

About Karin Schwob

We love love love this beach! Old Florida Beach is a perfect spot away from busy beaches, yet less than 5 miles away from Water Color/ Sea Side and many hot spots along 30-A. Located 1 mile from The Shops at Gulf place; you can walk, bike or drive to coffee shops, great boutiques, pizza, restaurants with live music, local art shops and summer concerts on the green.

Karin Schwob purchased this house in 2015

Why Karin Schwob chose Beaches of South Walton

Our private beach has an inlet from Draper Lake which is perfect for kids swimming, catching crabs and fish and digging in the sand. Set up chairs between calm lake water and the beautiful emerald coast ocean and you are set for the perfect day at the beach. We have been coming here annually for 10 years and think it is the perfect vacation spot.

The Sugar Shack is a well appointed, spacious home that served as the perfect destination for our family vacation.

It is comfortably yet beautifully furnished.

There are bikes and beach equipment provided in the garage, which entertained the kids when we weren't enjoying the beautiful Santa Rosa beach right outside the door.

We can't wait to return!

This is a beautifully decorated beach home with water views and very easy beach access. Was there with 8 adults, and we all were extremely comfortable, with plenty of room for all in beautiful bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. Already planning a trip back with the kids! This beach is in a great location with easy access to restaurants and nearby towns. Loved the Sugar Shack!!
