Pleased to present this new value-priced offering, Ocean Reef Real Estate Sales brings to you a brand new listing for a six-bedroom vacation home for sale at 4535 Luke Dr in Destin. It is just a short stroll away from the sugary shoreline in the fashionable, highly sought-after neighborhood of Crystal Beach. This coastal-inspired home can sleep up to twenty fortunate folks.
Comfortable furnishings and beautiful decor complete this gracious home, which currently serves as a lucrative short-term rental investment property. In 2022, annual gross rental income totaled $208,000. This is no surprise given the popular locale, spacious two-story accommodations with 3,297 square feet, and a refreshing private swimming pool. It is filled with charm and lots of creature comforts, including large flatscreen TVs in every bedroom for nighttime viewing pleasure. The alluring Old Florida-styled exterior features two sides of furnished verandas spanning the lower and upper levels. One is off the open living, dining, and kitchen area overlooking the lovely pool studded with tropical palm trees. It features a sitting area, a table with chairs for poolside dining, a gas grill for cookouts, and lots of chairs for sunny lounging.
The open living, dining, and kitchen areas are filled with natural light from a multitude of windows. Two tan couches flanked by twin white wicker accent chairs with patterned nautically colored cushions and matching leg rests ensemble around a decorative rug with a rustic trunk cocktail table. They face a 65” Smart HDTV mounted on a whitewashed antique cabinet for entertainment. Decorative art throughout this delightful home includes colorful paintings of seashells, flowers, marine life, coastal scenery, inspirational messages, bottles, and antique glass jars.
A rectangular table beneath a sconce chandelier in a large adjoining alcove has eight turquoise-colored cottage crisscross-backed chairs for dining.
The open kitchen can seat six more in vibrant square cushioned blue-topped white stools for wining and dining on a mottled granite island. The kitchen features creamy white custom cabinetry, brushed stainless steel appliances, and three ribbed glass bowls suspended as light fixtures over the island. A convenient half bath on this level serves as a powder room.
Three of the six bedrooms are primary suites with king-size beds and private luxury baths. One is conveniently located on the first floor, while the other two are upstairs with direct access to a balcony, one of which overlooks the swimming pool.
Three guest bedrooms are on the second floor, and two are bunk rooms with the ability to sleep six guests, each with balcony access. The other beautifully appointed guest bedroom has a charming queen size bed with a decorative metal frame.
