Proudly presented by Ocean Reef Real Estate Sales, a new listing for a sensational waterfront home with panoramic bayou views at 10 Bayou Dr in Fort Walton Beach is now on the market. This lovely three-bedroom home spans 2,380 square feet on the point of Don's Bayou. It can serve as your forever dream home, vacation residence, or rental investment property. The current owners occasionally used it as their vacation home and placed it on a short-term rental program at other times, which grossed $90,000 for 2023.
This incredible residence has a serene, seemingly remote location 150 linear feet from Bayou Drive near the water behind Live Oak trees draped with Spanish Moss. The grounds cover over half an acre and include 200 linear feet of waterfront. This home boasts a deep water dock on the west side of the property with a covered dock, a boat slip with a lift, electric power, and fresh water. It's just steps away from a garage, providing ample storage beneath the home. Another dock at the back of the property overlooks the open bayou, perfect for fishing, paddleboarding, or enjoying some amazing sunsets. A covered veranda spans across the back of this home off the open living area, looking out upon the lovely waterfront grounds. It provides a perfect place to entertain guests, enjoy favorite drinks, and grill some tasty food.
The spacious open living, dining, and kitchen areas have a bright, spacious look with a tall coffered ceiling and a wall of windows and sliding glass doors to the waterfront veranda. Rich hardwood flooring flows throughout beneath ceilings with recessed lighting and crown molding.
An open kitchen has state-of-the-art brushed stainless steel appliances, mottled granite countertops with a two-level prep island, creamy white custom cabinetry, and a walk-in pantry.
A dining alcove to one side of the kitchen with a coffered ceiling adorned with a crystal chandelier provides a charmed dining space with seating for eight.
The primary bedroom off the living area has two glass doors with side windows, which provide waterfront views and lead out to a sundeck. A soaring coffered ceiling accentuates a spacious look.
A palatial luxury ensuite bath is lavished with Travertine marble tile. It includes a deep soaking tub, a walk-in shower with double shower heads, and two granite-topped vanity sinks.
This home features a split floor design for privacy, with the two sunny guest bedrooms on the other side of the living area. They share a full Jack-n-Jill bath, and one has views of the tranquil bayou. A half bath nearby serves as a convenient powder room.
Recent improvements include a newly fenced backyard, a new well and pressure tank, a new HVAC system, a spacious revamped laundry room with a utility sink, a new washer and dryer, and a tankless water heater. The current owner also had plans drawn for a 3-car garage with a studio apartment on top for added rental income. These plans are available upon request.
This great location is near grocery stores, local attractions, restaurants, and friendly bars. It is only fifteen minutes away from the beautiful beach on Okaloosa Island. Also nearby is The Boardwalk, a popular gulf-front destination with wonderful dining establishments, beach bars, live music, fashion boutiques, and specialty shops. Attractions are offered for exciting watersport rentals, dolphin sightseeing excursions, and fishing trip adventures. Other delightful diversions include the Okaloosa Island Fishing Pier, the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park, the Emerald Coast Zoo, the Emerald Coast Science Center, and the US Air Force Armament Museum.
