Welcome to Tuscana! (Please see our Facebook page under Sandstone Beach Home for more info and pics)
Pool is available at the Sandestin Owners Association Swim Club near the main entrance to the resort.
Tuscana is located within the gates of Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort just east of the entrance to Burnt Pine directly off Baytowne Avenue. Tuscana was designed to reflect the very desirable and charming Tuscan villa themes. These Italian style designs are dressed in regional architectural elements such as a tile roof, turrets, stone work, washed stucco, exposed rafters, and beams. The interior is equally as enchanting with the use of natural stone floors, distressed wood flooring, stone fireplaces, custom wood doors, iron work, and faux finishes.
Stunning views from the home include a lake on hole #12(Par 3) of the Raven Golf course. The actual tee is literally steps from the back porch.
Our recently built home is approximately 2600 square feet and has three spacious bedrooms and two and a half baths. Because of the 22' high ceilings and open floor layout, the home feels much larger than this.
We have recently installed a Rannai instantaneous hot water system which allows for delivery of hot water continuously throughout the house. You'll never run out of hot water again!
The master bedroom suite has a king-size bed and features an enormous bathroom with a large Jacuzzi tub. There is a separate overhead rainfall shower with side jets. A small TV is also hidden behind a two way mirror within the vanity for those who want to watch TV while soaking in the Jacuzzi. For those in the mood to read, there is a feathered cushion sofa placed in the bedroom's nook overlooking the serene lake and golf course. And while in bed, one can watch TV on a 46 inch LCD or just simply flick a switch to turn on the fireplace.
The queen size bed is set in a round whimsical room that has 15 foot ceilings.
The bunk bed room has 2 sets of bunks that consist of a twin over twin and a twin over full. There is also a trundle in one of the bunks. Attached to the bunk bed room is a covered deck(turret). This room is perfect for families with children.
For those of you who love to cook, you are in luck. I love cooking and believe my renters should have the same luxuries. The gourmet kitchen has Viking appliances, professional knives, professional pots and pans(stainless steel with copper/aluminum core),etc. If I don't have something, please let me know and I'll see what I can do. There is also a built in grill on the covered portion of the patio. I believe families spend most of their time at home in the kitchen and for that I have staged the area for socializing. The kitchen opens to the dining room as well as the great room. The dining table has seating for 10 and there are 3 swivel stools at the bar.
The great room has a large custom made sectional sofa and fireplace. For those that want to watch tv, there is a large 73 inch 1080pHDTV. A Playstation 3 and media center is also available. Only one controller is available so users should bring their own games and any additional controllers. And of course family friendly board games can be found in the closet.
The home has 2 balconies and a large patio which is partially covered. There is an outdoor living room set on this patio for relaxation and sun.
Our home is also within walking distance of the Village of Baytowne Wharf. This village has many restaurants, shops, and bars and has a vibrant nightlife. Nearby is also Grand Boulevard which has unique boutique shops and many of the best fine dining restaurants in the area. The South's largest designer outlet mall, Silver Sands, is located just 5 minutes perfect for those who have to shop!
You can choose to play golf on one of the Resort's 4 course or enjoy water sports at the beach or marina. Children can take part in the junior tennis, golf, and sailing programs as well as the Kid Zone and Kids' Night Out programs which provide parents with some time alone.
We look forward to hearing from you and having you as our guests at Tuscana!
