Ocean Reef Real Estate is proud to present this new listing that serves two purposes in one. When one buys a home in the world-class resort of Sandestin, you are purchasing more than a house; you’re buying a lifestyle! It is located at 1401 Baytowne Avenue, lined with towering Live Oak trees on each side which provides a lovely setting.
This classically styled stately Mediterranean styled villa encompasses almost 2,900 square feet and comes with three bedrooms. The lovely design blends in seamlessly with the lush tropical landscaping that surrounds it. The Master Bedroom features a full ensuite luxury bath, while another full bath serves the two upstairs Guest Bedrooms. There is an additional half bath provided off the living area serving as a powder room.
The regal interiors of this home include soaring ceilings adorned with crown molding, beautiful vintage chandeliers, and a tall arched double portal entry from the entry foyer into the spacious open living area. This room has a light, bright ambiance with a wall of double wide arched windows from floor to ceiling. They are centered on a matching double glass door that leads out to an intricately patterned paver stone sun patio with a rectangular swimming pool. Magnolias and palms on one side of the patio create a private tropical oasis-like surrounding. Although this pool is just steps away, a large community pool overlooking a natural lagoon is less than five minutes away by golf cart.
The open Great Room incorporates the living, dining, and kitchen portions of this beautifully appointed resort home. The light from the windows and an open staircase to the Guest Bedrooms upstairs accentuate a spacious look. The living area has views through the arched windows overlooking the pool area and features a gas fireplace framed by an elegantly carved stone mantle.
The other side of this fireplace opens into the Gourmet Kitchen and has a sleek creamy marble-tiled contemporary exterior that goes from floor to ceiling. This kitchen features upscale stainless steel appliances, white custom cabinetry, and a center island with a mottled granite countertop with a four-burner gas range vented by a gleaming vent suspended from the ceiling. The cabinet base of this island, a handsome built-in desk, and a china cabinet are done in a dark ebony color which provides a striking accent.
The open dining area off the kitchen sits near the windows with pool views and features a gorgeous decorative metal sconce chandelier. The dining area adjoins an open portal with a bonus sitting area overlooking the pool that is off the main living area.
A palatial-looking arched portal with dark hardwood framing leads down a hallway with the convenient powder room to the Master Bedroom Suite at the end. This suite is quite spacious with a separate connected sitting area, a charming chandelier, and a wide portal entry into the deluxe bath. This luxurious bath features a white cabinet with separate vanity sinks, one of which includes a dressing table bedside it. There is a deep soaking tub beneath another chandelier in an alcove that is walled with thick block glass providing sparkling natural light. A separate glass-walled walk-in shower is also part of the bathroom design.
The two Guest Bedrooms upstairs share a full bath with double vanity sinks, which is directly accessible from each room. Both bedrooms include windows for light, and one of them has a lovely chandelier adorned with a few crystals for understated elegance.
This beautiful residence has an outstanding location centered in between the sophisticated town center of Sandestin known as Grand Boulevard and the enchanting Village of Baytowne Wharf. Both are just minutes away by golf cart across the lush forested grounds past golf fairways dotted by lagoons. Sandestin features four championship golf courses that are available for play and has a professional tennis center. You don’t even have to get in your car to go to the grocery store or liquor wine outlet since they are both just a golf cart ride away at Grand Boulevard. This stylish place also includes several restaurants with bars, fashion boutiques, fine clothiers, galleries, specialty shops, and a state-of-the-art movie theater complex that includes a VIP dining area. The captivating world of Baytowne Wharf was designed to resemble the charming architecture found in the New Orleans French Quarter. It straddles a long lagoon and is anchored by a long wharf that juts out into the beautiful bay at the Sandestin Yacht Club Marina. It is a popular destination for fishing and the experience of spectacular sunsets that occur right over the bay during the summer months. Baytowne Wharf has a wide array of great restaurants with bars that play live music, abundant family amusements, open-air concerts, fun festivals, and vibrant seasonal firework displays that are choreographed to music.
