Ideal indoor and outdoor entertaining/lounging space for the entire household! Additional Queen and Twin Bed in Loft Area.

When you enter the home off of the welcoming front porch, you are greeted with reclaimed Old Chicago brick walls, a grand staircase up to the second floor with a Queen bedroom off to the left. Very spacious with access to the front porch, a fun barn wood door for the bathroom and white marble bathroom with very large frameless walk-in shower, this bedroom is ideal for those who want space away from others or don't want to or can not handle a staircase. A powder room is conveniently located off of the front foyer as well for all to use.

The main kitchen/dining/living area is the sweet spot of this home with light blue painted coffered ceilings and white painted tin ceilings over the kitchen, a statement very large gas fireplace made of shells and sea glass with white painted Chicago brick and the beachy fun decor mixed with the luxurious furnishings immediately makes you feel a sense of family, laughter and fun at the beach. The chef's kitchen is complete with Thermador appliances, a 60" gas range, 2 dishwashers, an espresso/cappuccino maker; the blue-tiled backsplash and 5 bar stools create that nautical feel when combined with the light wood floors and white marble counters. The dining room is oversized with seating for everyone in the home! And the living room area has 2 couches with additional seating gathered around the fireplace and 60" TV mounted above the huge gas fireplace. The side entrance conveniently located right off of the driveway between the garage and living room area houses the laundry room with front loading units and a sink as well as convenient ice maker for those days at the beach.

The backyard oasis has both a porch dining option in addition to pool-side dining, a fire pit with 8 large seats around it, 4 loungers pool-side, built-in gas grill kitchen area, a large free-standing fireplace at the head of the beautiful dark-tiled hot tub with fountain that cascades down into the pool. It is very private with woods surrounding the area. The furniture is white and navy to continue the nautical beachy theme. This area is complete with an outdoor shower located off to the side so it's easily accessible from the front drive when you get back from the beach.

Each of the bedrooms on the second floor also have their own flat-screen TVs and en-suite bathrooms that excude that elegant spa style space with white marble and silver finishes, double vanities, large separate frameless showers and free-standing tubs. The kids' bathroom has the ideal shower/tub combo. One of the King suites is tucked away over the garage and overlooks the pool area while the main King suite expands the backside of the house with it's own private balcony overlooking the woods and firepit area. Outside this bedroom is a "Loft" with queen bed and twin bed. The spacious second Queen room has its own private balcony at the front of the house.

WaterColor is a unique, amenity rich environment with no shortage of leisure and recreational activities. Acres of parks, walking and biking trails lie throughout the community. And while the Emerald Coast is widely known for having the most beautiful beaches in the world, our coastal dune lakes offer unparalleled recreational opportunities right out your backyard. Coastal dune lakes are a rarity. They are found in New Zealand, Australia, Madagascar - and of course here in WaterColor on the Emerald Coast. For nature lovers, this is paradise found.

The Libbysand house and property are absolutely beautiful. The perfect house for a family/friends Spring Break vacation. The interior design and decor are out of a Southern Living magazine. Incredible outside area too with the pool, fire pit and wood fireplace. We took advantage of the built-in grill all week. And the WaterColor facilities (tennis courts, pools, beach club, trails) and proximity to Seaside was ideal - very safe for the kids to go back and forth. We will be back! Thanks
