A unique residence on a huge expanse of private bayfront property spanning over 19 acres is now offered for sale. Although the stunning natural setting at 487 W Nursery Rd in Santa Rosa Beach is seemingly remote, it is only ten minutes away from the coastal village center of Gulf Place on Scenic 30A.
This raised two-story home was built in recent years, encompassing 1,800 square feet, including three bedrooms with luxury ensuite baths and a half-bath powder room. It could become your private family compound and serve as an occasional vacation rental property. The home is located just two minutes north of Hogtown Bayou, famous for being a top destination among anglers providing an abundant cornucopia of fish. This wide bayou is a large inlet into the expansive Choctawhatchee Bay. It boasts Redfish, Speckled Trout, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, and Saltwater Catfish. The public Cessna Landing Park located there has picnic pavilions, a restroom, a playground, a basketball court, and a boat launch.
However, this amazing home sits on a canal accommodating small boats with a dock and connects to the open water. The water frontage on Hogtown Bayou itself spans 1,900 linear feet. The county issued a permit to build a boardwalk a short distance from the home to deep water on the property, which may be renewed. Besides its own expansive 19.32 acreage, this "down home" front bayfront estate is adjacent to 39 additional acres of pristine wetlands with thickets and islands of pine trees. It is part of a protected conservation area, so the very private exclusive setting of this home includes open stunning panoramic 180-degree vistas. In this wonderful natural habitat, you may enjoy seeing American Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons, Snowy White Egrets, seasonal Ducks, and Pelicans. Besides the forested marshlands, you look out upon Hogtown Bayou and part of the beautiful bay. The heavenly sunsets are superb since these views are out towards the west. It also offers a serene place to watch magical full moons set over the bay's western side.
This home was custom-built in 2015 to take full advantage of the premier natural setting. It is raised on thick foundation pillar posts up to the first floor of the two-level home. A viewing balcony spans all four sides of the first floor leading to a large open-covered veranda for outdoor entertaining while relishing the sensational views. This veranda is also directly accessible from the open living, dining, and kitchen area.
Multiple windows provide wonderful views from within while creating a bright sunlit space. Rich multi-toned parchment tile flooring flows throughout this spacious area, which also includes a gas fireplace.
The open eat-in kitchen includes white custom cabinetry, latte-toned countertops, and brushed stainless steel appliances with a large side-by-side refrigerator freezer.
The primary and second guest bedroom is on the top floor, with access to a partial sundeck and another covered veranda where you can experience the stellar scenery. The large primary bedroom has a sitting area and an ensuite bath with double vanity sinks and a walk-in shower.
The top-floor guest bedroom features gorgeous bayfront views and an ensuite bath with a walk-in shower.
A sunny guest bedroom on the first floor includes a private ensuite bath with a quartz-topped double vanity sink cabinet and a walk-in shower.
A half bath near a staircase leading up to the second-floor level serves as a convenient powder room.
