A wraparound balcony and covered beachfront veranda provide panoramic 180-degree views of the jewel-toned gulf, which extend as far as one can see into the glittering horizon. Raised on pillars, this two-story home has a covered parking area underneath for two cars. Besides the private 117 linear feet of sugary shoreline, this home is on an estuary of Oyster Lake. Coastal Dune Lakes of this kind are a rare precious natural treasure found hardly anywhere else in the world. The estuary intermittently ebbs and flows with the changing tides across the sugary white sand dunes that border the gulf. These exotic lakes provide a natural habitat that supports an abundant array of fish, waterfowl, and wildlife due to their exotic mixture of artisan spring-fed and salted waters. Besides luxuriating in the gleaming gulf, you may paddleboard or kayak on the lovely lake and try your luck fishing while enjoying the wildlife.
An outdoor staircase leads up to the wraparound balcony that provides entrance into the open living, dining, and kitchen area. It has a bright sunny look with a wall of sliding glass doors and multiple windows that showcase the views of the gorgeous gulf. The space is accentuated with a soaring vaulted ceiling, blonde hardwood paneled walls, and light brown wood flooring throughout. Fashionable vintage modern furnishings include a unique plush pale blue two-sided couch, a matching wraparound couch in a beach-view corner window, two burnt orange armchairs, and two creamy white wicker chairs with cheery yellow cushioned seats. They ensemble around a blue and white diamond patterned decorative rug with a hardwood tray cocktail table facing a gas fireplace. A large flatscreen TV is mounted on a white custom cabinet with a unique open-slatted zigzag design.
The gulf view dining area has a tropical beach-inspired look with a rustic hardwood country table flanked by eight richly woven natural wicker chairs.
Nearby, the open kitchen has a warm caramel-colored granite-topped bar with three charming white ladder-backed chairs for additional wining and dining. The kitchen also features brushed stainless steel appliances with a six-burner hooded gas range and white custom cabinetry.
The richly furnished primary bedroom includes Spanish-styled octagonal parchment-toned tile flooring, vivid green patterned wallpaper, a queen size bed with a regal carved two-posted headboard, a tropical zebra striped bench seat, and an attractive yellow love seat. The ensuite bath includes double vanity sinks and a deep soaking tub.
Two guest bedrooms on this floor feature individual bathrooms with tan porcelain tiled walls and walk-in showers. One of these guest quarters has a queen size bed and a handsome, intricately carved wooden chair. The other is a colorful bunk room with a twin and full-size bed.
Another spacious bunk room is upstairs with four twin beds, a vaulted ceiling, a seating area with two bamboo framed chairs, a beach view balcony, and a wall with a wide country-style sink. A walk-in shower lavishly decorated with blue and white scalloped shell tile serves these guest quarters.
As you probably know, location is the key to real estate value, and Dune Allen Beach serves as the western gateway to the privileged idyllic lifestyle found along Scenic 30A. The wonderful locale is minutes away from picturesque coastal villages for fun exploration and delightful diversions. Gulf Place, the highly acclaimed Santa Rosa Beach village center, is less than a handful of minutes away. It includes restaurants with friendly bars, a coffee shop, fashion boutiques, specialty shops, and galleries. A grassy amphitheater lined with royal palm trees in its center provides the perfect place to enjoy live outdoor concerts, art shows, and fun festivals throughout the year. Popular restaurants like the Vue on 30A and Stinky’s Fish Camp are a walking distance away. The Vue on 30A serves Caribbean-styled seafood with gulf coast flourishes and has heavenly views of the glowing gulf. Despite its whimsical name, the rustic lakefront restaurant of Stinky’s Fish Camp serves fantastic fresh-caught gulf fish, all types of oysters, and a wide array of craft beer and wine.
