Don't miss the opportunity to own this Tuscan-style estate with a panoramic view of the sunset across the Choctawhatchee Bay in Santa Rosa Beach, Beaches of South Walton. After a quick walk around, this exquisite home and jaw dropping view will seem lifted off a poster. There are very few sunset lots like this one. With several oaks over 100 years old, this property will draw you in when you drive down the 300-foot winding, shaded driveway. This extremely private backyard features a unique topography that protects it during storms. A chef's kitchen and high-end trim and finishes make this home timeless with elegant touches of stone and wood. The dock is a 1,200 ft. composite masterpiece, spanning the entire width of the estate framed by three large clusters of live oaks. See More...Other pertinent information: The roof should last forever and never leak. There is a metal corrugated roof beneath the beautiful tile roof. The Pella Pro-Line hurricane windows throughout the home have been replaced regularly as needed. The oversized front door is solid mahogany. There are two fireplaces, one of which is in the master bedroom. The master bedroom suite has expansive windows and French doors that lead out to the upper balcony that faces the bay. The master bathroom has his and hers sinks, a whirlpool tub and a walk-in shower. The gourmet kitchen boasts an over-sized granite island with a prep sink, granite counter tops and abundant storage throughout with custom cherry cabinets. A Sub-Zero side-by-side wood paneled refrigerator is complimented by a 36" six burner Five Star range, two Five Star convection ovens, Fisher-Paykel dishwasher, and a flat screen television. The home has survived every storm since Opal with no water ever touching the house. It has a three-car, air-conditioned garage with a large workshop pre-plumbed that could serve as a cottage or mother-in-law quarters, plus it has a huge amount of storage overhead. Seller has been able to fit 4 cars in the garage, but with the workshop, it's really ideal for only three. Boat/jet ski lifts will remain, are in working condition, but are not warranted. This lot was platted in 1979, is not subject to dues, and is not in a HOA. Just a short drive with no traffic lights between shopping and Sacred Heart Hospital. Owner is currently in the process of moving out to update the home and plans to be out after the first of the year. The price is certain to rise after the update. Get a sneak peak now and update it your way with your colors. Call for a personal showing.
