This cute 2,310 square foot Destin cottage is in the highly sought after community of Crystal Beach, positioned on a half an acre landscaped lot. This enviable locale is only two blocks from the beautiful beach but includes its own newly completed private pool out back. Within minutes you may go from poolside to gulf side.
The main residence is charming and enchanting with a distinctive architectural styling reminiscent of a treasured Old Florida. A wide columned veranda spans across part of its front and side, inspiring one to sip upon a glass of lemonade while enjoying the gulf breezes. It looks out upon a yard bordered by a white picket fence that’s adorned with palm trees, live oaks, and other tropical plants. Double glass front doors lead into an entry foyer with creamy white tiled flooring that accentuates its spacious look.
Twin columns frame entry into the newly carpeted family room with views of the pool through double sets of sliding glass doors, providing easy access. It features a gas fireplace with a massive scrolled wooden mantle. The formal dining room is through a vast open portal beside the entry foyer that’s lighted by bright windows on two walls.
The state of the art kitchen has recently been remodeled with gleaming stainless steel appliances including a side by side refrigerator/freezer, a dishwasher, a tabletop gas range and a large oven raised up at eye level for ease of use. The custom cabinetry and a built-in side desk are richly accented with striking dark ebony granite tops streaked in mocha tones. A splash wall seamlessly blends similar colors around three side walls and a sink that sits beneath a sunny window.
The spacious Master Bedroom has plenty of room for a king sized bed, dressers and a sitting area. It includes a luxurious full private bath en suite with double vanities encased in thick granite tops veined with creams, grays and charcoal colors. The Guest Bedroom also has room for a sitting area and has access to a full hall bath that doubles as a powder room off the main living area.
The lovely studio-like Pool House includes a sleeping area facing a long dining counter beside the open kitchen that includes a refrigerator, an electric range with oven, a wide stainless steel sink and dishwasher. It also has its own full bath.
Gracious living is defined by the newly completed Trex decking next to the gunite pool between the house and guest quarters. Poolside barbeques and dining are available on the large deck as well as beneath a trellised covered arbor. This home has been remodeled with a new roof, a two-zone HVAC system, a tankless water heater, an irrigation system, appliances, granite counter tops, sliding glass doors and carpeting within the last three years. The location is close to favorite gulf front restaurants, shopping venues, and abundant amusements.
