A classic absolutely charming historic cottage at 183 Defuniak Street near the original Grayton Beach village center is now available for sale.
This captivating cabin-like cottage provides an enchanting trip back in time and is a short stroll away from the sugary shore beside the glittering emerald toned gulf. It was built in 'Old Grayton Beach' back in the 1880s but has been updated with a new kitchen, HVAC, and comfortable furnishings - while preserving the original character.
The cottage is nestled among towering pines, clusters of palmetto palms, and natural woodlands. A gracious front porch with a couple of rocking chairs and a bench swing decorated with hand-carved hearts spans its width overlooking the lovely surroundings.
Wide double glass French doors lead into an open living area with original hardwood flooring brightened by three sides of windows and canned lighting above. A rich oriental rug adorns a cozy seating ensemble with a comfortable couch, tables for drinks or snacks, a matching pair of antique ladder backed Colonial chairs with straw woven seats, a vintage armchair, and an antique dresser with a mirror. A flatscreen TV that sits upon an old cargo trunk in the corner is provided for entertainment.
On the other side of the room, a round maple table accented by four elegant, stylish dark ebony antique chairs sits upon another oriental rug beneath a candled chandelier for a charming dining experience. It sits beside a glass front china cabinet, an antique corner hutch, and a burgundy colored country bench.
The ample open country kitchen has cream-colored cottage cabinetry, an electric range, oven, microwave, and refrigerator. Deep double farm sinks are centered alongside a double window for natural light.
A bright bedroom that resembles a small sunroom has a queen-sized bed with a decorative metal headboard.
The bathroom has a classic white pedestal sink and a convenient walk-in glass shower.
A raised deck out back has a table with chairs for drinks or dining al fresco and an outdoor shower to rinse the sand off after the beach.
A closet includes a new stacked washer and dryer.
