Everything old is new again, and this fashionably renovated Seagrove Beach cottage at 42 East Grove Avenue exemplifies that fact! It has been completely redone to embrace the highly popular Mid-Century Vintage Modern look, which is fitting since it was originally built in 1958.
Mid Century Vintage Modern styling has become highly sought after and looks like it’s here to stay for many years. It includes furnishings and décor originally introduced in the 1950s and 1960s. This optimistic “space-age” era with distinct “modern” styling was very new and quite popular. Today this look appeals to both aging Baby Boomers for its nostalgia and young Millennials who are embracing a more minimalist clutter-free environment. The movement has become so profound that it is becoming embraced by fashion designers.
This historic concrete block cottage on almost .25 acres of land measuring 60’ x 120’ was made to last having survived over six decades. The stellar location in the heart of Scenic 30A territory is only one block away from the beach access where Seagrove meets up with Seaside at the S. County 395 junction. This privileged setting is two minutes away from iconic Seaside for the enjoyment of restaurants, beach bars, galleries, boutiques, outdoor concerts, and captivating seasonal festivals. It is also conveniently close to a Publix grocery and liquor wine outlet. This is a top destination for fortunate buyers of second homes as well as vacationers. Lots of homes are rented out for lucrative income when owners are not vacationing themselves, and this cottage is move-in or rental ready since it comes completely furnished.
The two-bedroom, one-bath cottage encompasses 936 square feet, but recent renovations that include vaulted ceilings, multiple windows, and an open, airy interior make it seem much larger. Creamy white concrete block walls and matching shiplap accentuate spaciousness while a light hardwood tongue and groove ceiling soars high above.
Both bedrooms include built-in shelving and wall boxes for efficient use of space.
The open living area includes a “loft library” with upper shelving accessible by ladder. A cream-colored couch and love seat faces a flatscreen TV mounted on a rustic glass-front beach chest. A swank leather “Butterfly Chair” provides a comfortable accent.
Multiple windows gaze out to a furnished screened porch that overlooks the private forested yard.
The other side of the house has another open room with a bright new kitchen and dining area. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances, sleek retro blonde wood cabinetry, and white quartz countertops.
Two butcher block topped tables beside a double set of windows have built-in cushioned bench seating and Vintage Modern side chairs for dining.
Both bright bedrooms have windows for light with a queen-sized bed in one and twins in the other.
They share a new hall bath with a white-topped vanity and walk-in shower.
