In recent years South Walton has become a popular haven for national celebrities who have discovered our shimmering sugary shoreline that borders the jewel toned waters of the glittering gulf. Properties along South Walton’s Scenic 30A are particularly sought after since picture perfect meticulously planned coastal villages have been created over the past dozen years.
One of them is the gated WaterSound Beach community and now a former Casino Boss has listed his deluxe Americana styled home for sale. He is well known in Mississippi for rebuilding one of their top casinos after Katrina. His stately home features seven bedrooms and encompasses almost 4,500 square feet. It was just completed in 2014 but the charming Cape Cod styled exteriors are classically timeless. It has state of the arts interior amenities and also comes fully furnished.
The home has a wonderful location overlooking a lovely WaterSound park with distant views of the gulf. The beachfront community pool is just a short stroll away where raised pedestrian walkways rise over the sugary dunes and lead down to the beautiful beach. A columned front porch bordered by a white picket fence overlooks the park while multiple balconies and a covered porch above provide panoramic views.
Out back a private swimming pool provides refreshment next to a comfortably furnished covered living area with an outdoor kitchen. The interiors seamlessly dovetail classic architectural features with modern amenities that create a stunning blend that exemplifies comfortable coastal elegance. The first floor includes a sunny open spacious living and dining area, a Gourmet Kitchen, a junior Master Bedroom suite and an elegant powder room bath. Multiple sets of French doors provide access to the pool patio.
Subtle antique washed solid oak flooring flows throughout, while 12-foot ceilings and Bevelo lighting fixtures provide creative custom detailing.
The kitchen features gleaming Wolf and Sub Zero appliances, cream colored custom cabinetry with open shelving, double sinks, double dishwashers, a large eat-in island and marble topped counters. An open staircase sweeps up to the second floor leading to the large Master Bedroom that has a vaulted ceiling, an individual seating area, balcony access and a walk-in closet. A spa-like bath en suite is adorned with Spanish mosaic tile and marble siding with duel vanities, a zero-entry glass shower as well as a free standing soaking tub. Two Guest Bedrooms on this level also include en suite baths and have access to the second living area with a built-in Wet Bar as well as the large covered balcony.
Another Guest Bedroom and custom Bunk Room are on the third floor with access to a full bath. Separate guest quarters are provided in a Carriage House that sits above the two-car garage. These comfortably appointed quarters have their own living area, a kitchen, a Guest Bedroom and a full bath.
