Privacy, lush natural surroundings and over 1100 feet of gorgeous white sand beach and turquoise waters in the community make this contemporary haven the perfect place to relocate, retire or enjoy part time. Built on a gently sloping, deep lot over 1/3 of an acre in size, this multi level home offers the convenience of a single level home by housing all of the common areas (including media room, man cave, and living room), the kitchen and laundry, the master suite and even an extra bedroom suite on a SINGLE level. This primary floor level sits at the height of the oak canopy, bathing the windows in a sea of green foliage and seclusion, while also providing a natural privacy screen for the elevated pool deck and hot tub. Recent updates include new paint, new flooring, and new appliances. The home features an attached two car garage with separate guest suite, as well as a single car garage that has been converted for storage (perfect for golf carts or beach toy storage or a home office). An expansive deck provides outdoor living space and large windows along the southern wall bring in natural light while Bermuda shutters add privacy. Beautiful new porcelain tile that looks like wood throughout the common areas compliment the new carpet in the bedrooms making happy toes when the feet hit the floor in the morning. The main floor, featuring a remodeled kitchen with pantry, a new oven and microwave as well as a new warming drawer, also has a laundry room, and a bedroom with bathroom. The living room with wood burning stove and cathedral ceiling includes a spiral staircase leading to two large upstairs bedrooms which share a Jack and Jill bathroom. A media room just beyond the living room is a perfect place for watching the big game. An oversized "man cave" for hosting poker night features a full sized bar, new quartz countertop kitchenette, a pool table and even a slot machine. Just outside the entertainment room is the elevated pool- a popular place to splash down after a long day on the beach. The pool deck is also home to a hot tub and pass thru windows from the bar kitchenette that make grilling - and refills - easy too. A pool bathroom conveniently located off the master bathroom gives easy access from the master suite directly to the pool deck. The master bathroom features two roomy closets, triple vanities and a walk in shower. Outside, the driveway has ample parking and slopes down to the double garage which has a finished guest suite, office or bonus room with private bath. Gulf Pines neighborhood is a hidden gem located south of Emerald Coast Parkway between Sandestin and the Silver Sands Factory Stores. The community features over 1100 feet of pristine private beach, a neighborhood beach walkover and pavilion affectionately called "The Taj," two lakes and a voluntary HOA with dues of only $300 per year.
