This expansive 3,880 square-foot home is nestled high atop a soaring sugar-white dune with views of the gorgeous gulf at 38 Bramble Grove Place in Seagrove Beach. The beautifully appointed home includes two spacious bedrooms with private ensuite luxury baths and a half bath powder room conveniently located off the living area. It is awesomely unique in two different ways. First of all, it has a paramount position that provides panoramic Gulf of Mexico views from the upper level. Secondly, it features a striking yet enchanting craftsman design that is fashioned using solid pure golden mahogany exterior walls.
This gracious home is a masterpiece of architectural design by Tom Christ, a renowned local architect of such grandiose residences. An open parking court with charming cobblestone pavers easily accommodates two vehicles and has pathways on both sides to the side entry and home rear.
The "Wow" factor continues from within, including towering twelve-foot ceilings on both the first and second floor levels. It is further accentuated with mahogany flooring, which glows with a golden reddish hue. This rich look continues using the same wood for plantation shutters, providing a showcased tropical look throughout.
A Great Room that incorporates the open living and dining areas includes a white limestone slab fireplace on each side of this expansive space. They extend from floor to ceiling and are flanked by a wall of glass windows with doors that lead out to a breezy screened porch for casual outdoor entertaining.
The dune seascape and soothing surf sounds may be experienced from this private retreat which also connects to a cobblestone side patio with a spa-style hot tub. Decking leads to a beach dune walkover to the private sugar-white beach down below, which spans across beside the glowing gulf waters.
A hallway leads from the Great Room on the other side to a large den that is lined with walls of tall white custom built-in shelving space for lots of books or objects de' art and could also be used as a beautiful office.
A broad-beamed portal leads into the spacious Gourmet Chef's Kitchen. It features dark, handsome handmade basalt stone tile flooring, white limestone walls that accent the regal blue-colored custom cabinetry, white soapstone countertops, and a large kitchen island with a butcher block top.
A walk-in pantry provides plentiful storage, and top-of-the-line appliances will please even the most ardent of chefs. They include a restaurant-sized Wolf gas range with a double oven, a Sub-Zero refrigerator-freezer, two dishwashers, and a pair of big Sub-Zero Wine Coolers.
An elegant stairwell leads to the second story, which features two expansive Master Bedroom Suites along with built-in twin bunks tucked in off a hallway and an office nook. The primary Master Suite has a sunny southern view as it faces the glittering gulf and includes a romantic private beachfront porch deck where you may enjoy the views while listening to the sensual surf below.
The ensuite bath exudes charm with a wide entry portal, a deep rectangular country-inspired sink, a deep vintage soaking tub, and a walk-in shower adorned with dark pebble stone.
