Built with care to blend with the natural wooded surroundings, this lovely home is nestled among the native vegetation of the Emerald Coast. Secluded and serene in Point Washington, it is just minutes to the beach and all Scenic 30A has to offer. There are amazing bay views with 179 feet of deep water bayou frontage and immediate access to the bay. A 180' pier leads to deep water McQuage Bayou with room for a boat lift and access to the community bay front beach and pier. Every intention of the design of this home is to complement its surroundings. Bay views are astounding from both stories. Exterior features of this home are 1,043 SF of covered and screened porches, cedar exterior siding - lap, shake and board & batten patterns - with a standing seam metal roof. A long entry porch with tropical wood decking welcomes you. Entering the foyer there's a unique windowed view into the kitchen with marsh and bay views beyond. Expansive windows drink in the view in this open floor plan. Interior features include designer grade finishes and fixtures throughout, raised ceilings with crown molding, wood windows and doors with exterior aluminum cladding, 8' solid 5-panel interior doors and solid maple hardwood floors. The spacious, yet cozy, living room has a wood burning fireplace with granite tile and a custom built-in media cabinet. The dining room opens to a large, wrap around screened porch. The enormous gourmet kitchen features stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, open display shelves above a cedar-shake-faced breakfast bar, custom cabinetry, a built-in wine rack and a butler's pantry. There are two master suites; one on each floor and each with a private screened porch and amazing bay views. The master bath on the 1st floor has unique vessel sinks with granite tiled countertops, an enameled cast iron bathtub and tiled shower. The laundry room, also on the 1st floor, has a large stainless-steel sink, new washer/dryer and a built-in desk with file drawers. Moving to the 2nd floor you are greeted by a sunny stair landing with window seats. The large, light-filled master has sweeping marsh & bay views. The master bath has beautiful vessel sinks with custom ceramic tile countertops, a very large soaking tub and walk-in shower. The master closet has built-in vanity, shelving and chest of drawers. The 3rd bedroom has a built-in computer area with folding doors and an attached bath with walk-in closet. Additional features include 2' X 6' framing with 10' ceilings, a floor truss system with rigid duct work between floors and a tankless water heater. The wooded lot is filled with dancing oaks, magnolias, long leaf pines, cinnamon ferns & palmettos. And, with seemingly unending views of marsh and bay, you'll find it the perfect spot to view the varied coastal bird life. As you overlook the bayou, open bay and Intercoastal Waterway, you can watch as shrimpers trawl for their catch, yachts travel past to their next port of call and tugboats pushing barges pass by. This is a unique opportunity to own an example of timeless, custom-designed southern vernacular architecture in a preserved "Old Florida" setting only 3 miles from the coveted white sands and emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
