    Description

    Now offering $100,000 upgrade allowance. 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 and some over 200, 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 entire width of the estate is framed by 3 large clusters of live oaks. See More...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, walk in pantry, 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 unique lot was platted in 1979, is not subject to dues, and is one of the few not in a HOA. Seller has a permit for 1,100 SF of dock from the Corp of Engineers in 1996. He believes you can replace the dock with a repair permit if you keep the same footprint. All of the pilings except one are still in place, but he removed the composite dock this past year when his neighbor's dock busted loose and destroyed his dock. Just a short drive with no traffic lights between shopping and Sacred Heart Hospital. Owner is currently in the process of moving out. Call for a personal showing. Please refer to the Letter from the Seller in the Documents for additional pertinent information about the property. NOTE: This property is subject to a 1031 tax deferred exchange for the benefit of the seller with no consequence to the buyer.
