This classic beach cottage has just received a complete upscale restoration and comes completely furnished for a “turn-key” move in residence or rental ready investment. It is located in Seagrove Beach in the forested residential neighborhood of Gulf Shore Manor. This community has no HOA fees and is at the end of a cul-de-sac at 160 Montigo Ave, a short stroll away from a nature trail that leads down a dune from Scenic 30A to the sugary shoreline. It also has three other beach access points within walking distance. It is only a mile from Seaside, placing it minutes away from a wide array of restaurants, friendly beach bars, galleries, specialty boutiques, free concerts, and fun seasonal festivals. This makes it a prime property for lucrative vacation rental income and the program it is on recently grossed $50,000 for the year.
160 Montigo Ave is a 1,614 square foot home with three bedrooms features three full baths and could easily serve as a primary residence. It could also be rented out during peak periods and retained for family beach vacations at other times. The original historic cottage was moved to this lovely locale in 2007, and a tower addition was added for a two bedroom addition. In 2018 it was modernized and fashionably updated throughout to include a brand new kitchen, three bathrooms, and flooring.
This gracious home is three stories tall with screened porches on each level. A paver brick driveway leads to a covered carport with additional parking on a sidecar court.
The main living area has a bright, crisp look with lots of windows and creamy white shiplap walls as well as a free-standing kitchen bar with raised wrought iron chairs.
They are accented by part of the original rustic pinewood ceiling over the area above the kitchen which features gleaming stainless steel appliances and the attractive living area beside it. An open living area is quite comfortable with a plush latte toned cloth couch, and striped accent chair facing a TV mounted on a unique criss-cross patterned credenza for entertainment.
The dining area has a refined, elegant look with a round table and four classic ebony black spindle-backed colonial chairs. Decorative arts throughout this home include vibrant tropical fish sculptures, colorful paintings, tropically themed décor, and nautical accouterments.
Two of the bedrooms include en suite baths with walk-in showers while the other has access to a full hall bath with an old fashioned claw foot soaking tub. The bedrooms have comfortable, cheerful furnishings done with cottage styling and all have French doors leading out to screened porches.
