A captivating stately residence with 5,463 square feet is now offered for sale at 278 W Water St. in the highly sought-after world of Rosemary Beach. This gracious manor home includes seven bedrooms with private ensuite luxury baths along with two additional half baths that serve as elegant powder rooms. This wonderful home could complete your family legacy and be passed down from one generation to the next. In the meantime, you could reside here yourself or use it as an incredible beach vacation home. Amazingly enough, it comes complete with comfortable furnishings and lavish coastal style décor.
This outstanding Scenic 30A location is steps away from the sugary shoreline and the Barbados community swimming pool. It features a large oval-shaped wading pool at the end of a lovely landscaped sun patio, an adjoining rectangular swimming pool, and convenient restroom facilities. Rosemary Beach is a highly privileged and charming Dutch West Indies-styled coastal village. It serves as a popular beach destination among “the rich and famous” due to the idyllic lifestyle it offers. Although completed in recent years, it distinctively resembles classic colonial-styled settlements with stepped gable rooftops, walled courtyards, and stately bearings. A long, lush lawn serves as a village green where outdoor concerts, family games, art shows, fun festivals, and seasonal firework celebrations are held. The soaring dune topped views of the glistening jewel-toned gulf waters are heavenly. This is especially true as you walk down to the Western Green village beach access point from Barret Square on 30A. As it meanders toward the bright white beach below, the street is filled with specialty shops, fashion boutiques, cafes, and upper-level townhomes. This serene setting makes you feel like you are somewhere in Europe instead of on the Emerald Coast. Rosemary Beach was designed to be entirely walkable due to its intimate size. Many swimming pools, tennis courts, and a fitness center in the village are available for residents to use, along with the beautiful beach.
As soon as you see the exteriors of this majestic three-story residence, you become enthralled. A paver stone driveway enters into a walled courtyard leading to an attached two-car climate-controlled garage with a large carriage house. The courtyard can park five additional cars, and there is a walk-in wine cellar located off to the side. This magnificent manor was created by the renowned Boheme Design Group and beautifully built by Galvas Construction. The masterful craftsmanship, attention to detail, opulent appointments, high-end materials, unique light fixtures, stone surfaces, sumptuous furnishings, and high-tech electronics would rival the finest homes in Rosemary Beach.
An elevator easily accesses all three floors. A staircase includes an open contemporarily styled bedroom landing with dramatic views into the carriage house living area. These spacious guest quarters include the living area, a full-sized state-of-the-art kitchen, a third-floor media room with an entire wall of unique plush bed couch seating, a four bunk bedroom, and two baths.
The lower level of the main house includes a handsome foyer with a stone floor leading into a lovely den with comfortable furnishings, a fireplace flanked by giant colonial-styled lanterns, and a wall of paneled sliding glass doors leading out to a private courtyard.
This private oasis includes a plunge pool with water that cascades down, providing a soothing sound of serenity. The sun patio features upscale furnishings, an outdoor kitchen with a built-in Green Egg and a wet bar for entertaining, two sets of suspended swings for kids as well as double levels of columned verandas overlooking the pool.
The main great room on the second floor includes the spacious living, dining, and kitchen areas. Two latte-toned couches and two white fashionable vintage-modern styled chairs face a regal fireplace mantle with a large flatscreen TV mounted above it for entertainment. This room exemplifies rustic elegance with the use of Venetian plaster, shiplap, and pecky cypress, which tastefully adorn the walls and ceilings. It also features loads of natural light from multiple windows and the towering ceilings, accentuating a spacious look. This home is filled with decorative art, paintings of seascapes, unique sculptures, marine life, and tropically inspired prints.
The open gourmet kitchen features a LaCranche gas range with a stunning black onyx-colored hood adorned with gleaming brass accents along with Subzero, Wolf, and Bosche appliances. A Scotsman ice maker, wine and beverage coolers are also featured. White veined quartz countertops and a cascaded kitchen island with leather seating invite you to enjoy favorite drinks, wine, and appetizers. Three nautically styled copper dome light fixtures with porthole glass openings on the bottoms are suspended above the island. The custom cabinetry throughout this fine kitchen includes sliding spice rack doors and plenty of space for all your culinary needs.
Every bedroom comes individually decorated and beautifully appointed, with large comfortable king-sized beds in six of them. All of the ensuite luxury baths are uniquely tiled in marble. They include brass fixtures by Kallista as well as WaterStone.
The luxurious master bath includes a large walk-in glass-walled shower and a deep soaking tub for soothing relaxation.
