About the Property

Private House, 4 Bedrooms + Private Sleeping Den, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 10-12)

Flying High is a gorgeous luxury vacation home located in The Plantation on St. George Island on a 1.24 acre lot with sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico. Take the 200-step walk to the beach down a direct maintained walkway without crossing any roads, and step out onto a very wide quiet beach.

Flying High has four Master Bedrooms plus a private Den which can be used as a second living area for the kids or as a fifth bedroom using the sleeper sofa. Past visitors consistently remark that the Owners have 'thought of everything - remembered every little detail.'

You will believe it when you see the amazingly stocked kitchen, find the separate stereo/CD system for the pool including the in-ground poolside speakers, and even the dimmers throughout the house to give it just the right ambiance in the evenings. And if you can't leave the office behind, there is free high-speed internet access (wired or wireless) and a desk with a gulf view.

The top floor of the house includes the open living/dining/kitchen area all under a vaulted tongue-and-groove ceiling, a screened porch surrounded by views, covered and open decks and a half bath. The primary King master suite with his and her closets and master bath with large jacuzzi tub, separate shower and separate water closet are on this top floor as well.

The gourmet kitchen features custom cherry cabinets, Silestone countertops and stainless appliances including double ovens for the serious cooks. The huge island contains the gas cooktop and a raised breakfast bar with barstools for those who like to keep the cooks company. The oversized walk-in pantry is to the side of the kitchen keeping the snack-searching traffic out of the chefs' way!

You are sure to remember the decks at Flying High. Comprising over 1000 square feet of covered and sun decks, you will have plenty of room for large groups as well as quiet areas for a little downtime. Visitor favorite - ENJOYING THE HAMMOCK on the covered deck!

Back inside on the middle level, you will find another 3 over-sized bedrooms (1 King, 1 Queen, 1 4T) each with flat-screen TV and en-suite bathrooms including one with a large double shower. All have custom cherry cabinetry and custom tile. There is also a den which may be used as a 5th bedroom using the sleeper sofa or the provided queen air mattress. The bath from the 4-twin (2 bunk) room has hallway access as well and may be used by those staying in the den. The walk-in laundry room with wall-mounted ironing board is also on this level.

The oversized 15x32-foot pool with waterfall will be a hit with kids and adults alike. The pool is surrounded with palm trees and natural vegetation, and is entirely private, no neighbors in sight. Connect your phone or device by Bluetooth to the poolside speaker system. You will also find a pool-level wet bar with mini-fridge for the poolside and beverages. The pool can be heated during cooler months for $350/week.

Speaking of kids...Flying High is equipped with a pack and play and a high chair. The den is a great second, separate living area complete with a video library with children's movies and a DVD player.

The St. George Island Plantation is a private gated community including three tennis courts, a community pool and clubhouse, a bike path, a private air strip and incredible fishing at 'The Cut'. Flying High is located on a quiet street 1 mile into the Plantation.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We are a family of 4 from Atlanta, GA. We rented on St. George for many years and saved and saved and finally bought our lot in The Plantation in Spring 2001. We spent the next year or so working with an architect and custom designed the house from the ground up. Our architect was the Chair of the Plantation Architecture Committee at the time, so he was able to get us the best placement on the lot with the best views. Then we selected a fantastic builder and got to work! We visited regularly during construction, made a lot of tweaks and picked out every last thing in the house. We feel we ended up with such a great home. We know you'll love it too! The house was completed 8 weeks after our first child was born, and we spent his 9th and 10th week moving furniture into the house and getting it ready for the rental market. Our second child was born 16 months later, and those boys, now 9 and 10, absolutely beg to go to 'the beach house' all the time. It is a great place for kids, and we have such amazing family memories at the house. Feel free to send us emails with any questions - we're happy to talk about our house or the island in general. Thank you!

Why the Owner Chose Sea Palm Village, St. George Island, FL, USA:
St. George Island is an amazing 'uncommon' destination. It is quiet - free of high rises, chain restaurants or any long lines. The locals are friendly and welcoming, and you can walk a mile or two on the beach and often not see another person. The island is 5.5 hours from Atlanta where we live, and your blood pressure is sure to drop 20 points as you cross over the 4 mile bridge from the mainland to the island. And The Plantation is amazing and completely different than the main part of the island. It is more vegetated, the homes have much more privacy, and the beaches are wider and not crowded at all.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
So much room and privacy - the lot itself is 1.24 acres. We usually go to the beach in the morning - play in the waves, build sandcastles, fly kites, take long walks. Then we head back to the house, hose off the kids and have lunch by the pool. Then its an afternoon of poolside fun with the waterfall, the in-ground sound system, and the pool-level mini bar chock full of tasty refreshments. We spend evenings cooking great healthy dinners full of fresh seafood caught that day or heading out to one of our many favorite local restaurants. We love to go down to 'The Cut' at sunset and watch for dolphins swimming through the channel, and have taken many holiday card pictures while we're there! Our kids are old enough now that we can all ride our bikes into downtown St. George (3.5 miles one way) - pickup something at the market, stop at the playground by the lighthouse, or head the other way and ride down to 'The Cut'. We almost always have additional family or friends with us, but we also love the times when it is just the 4 of us as well.
