This 2,532 square foot gulf front “cottage” for sale at 143 New Providence Ln in the enchanting world of Rosemary Beach has four bedrooms and four full baths. Rosemary Beach resembles a Dutch West Indies Colonial-styled coastal village that provides an idyllic lifestyle for fortunate residents and their guests.
A wide lush lawn on Scenic 30A serves as a village green where art shows, fun festivals, seasonal firework celebrations, and wonderful nostalgic family gatherings are hosted year-round. It features some magnificent views of the luminescent waters of the jewel-toned gulf from its dune top location. This is especially true as you meander down to the main village beach access point on Western Green from Barret Square on Scenic 30A. As it slopes down toward the sugary shoreline, the sides are filled with specialty shops, boutiques, restaurants, bistros, and upper-level townhomes, making you feel like you are in a charming part of Europe. This home has an enviable setting at the bottom of this main street overlooking the gulf near Western Green. It sits right beside a convenient deeded beach access for residents’ exclusive use. The privileged residential enclave of Rosemary Beach is easily walkable due to its intimate size, with multiple swimming pools available for use, and one of them is a very short stroll away and includes a clubhouse. Tennis courts and a fitness center are also available for residents and their fortunate guests.
These gorgeous Gulf-front homes are highly sought-after and the crème de la crème of Rosemary Beach. The 2.5-story main residence features the primary suite and a guest bedroom on the first floor, while an open-concept living, dining, and kitchen area are upstairs. The freshly painted exteriors feature a facade with masterful concrete construction and a captivating colonial-styled look. The beautifully appointed interior design was completed by the renowned Ganeaux Designs group.
The open living area is upstairs, filled with abundant natural light provided by multiple windows and a wall of paneled glass doors. It features a dramatic cathedral ceiling, open truss beams accentuating a spacious setting, and a white classically mantled gas fireplace.
A breezy Gulf-front balcony provides breathtaking views of the emerald-hued waters inside and out. It includes cozy outdoor furnishings and a dining set for casual drinks and conversation.
Adjoining the living room, an open kitchen has a rectangular glass lantern lighting fixture suspended above a dining section and a caramel color topped island with a gas range top and an oven underneath. Creamy white custom cabinetry and a sunny window over the sink provide a warm, welcoming look.
The primary bedroom downstairs has beach-washed furnishings, upscale decor, a gas fireplace, and glass doors leading to a romantic balcony.
The luxurious ensuite bath is lavished with intricate multi-colored layers of mosaic tile. It features a glass-walled shower with individual windows that look out toward the gulf.
A guest bedroom on this level also has an ensuite bath with a single vanity and a soaking tub beneath a small glass-beaded chandelier.
A full bath off the living area which also serves as a powder room, has a walk-in shower elegantly adorned with silver octagonal tile.
A spiral staircase in the main second-story living area leads up to a bright loft-like guest bedroom on the top level. It provides perfect sleeping quarters for kids since it has a built-in daybed beside sunny windows and two more custom bed spaces on a side wall.
This residence also includes a bonus carriage house above a two-car garage with a connected courtyard right off the deeded beach access walkway. The courtyard includes three large round gray stones that spurt water out of their tops, providing a tranquil setting and a lovely patio that provides a gracious entry into the main residence. A convenient outdoor shower under the stairs leading up to the carriage house is provided to wash off sandy feet after a fun day at the beach.
The carriage house has a lovely living area, a nautically colored full galley kitchen, a full bath with a walk-in shower, and a spiral staircase that leads to an upper-level loft bedroom.
