Private Pool/Spa-Southern Exposure
Open Floor Plan--New Furnishings 2014
This gorgeous 3 bedroom/2 bath home was newly built in 2012 with an open floor plan. It features detailed construction, with 12 foot ceilings, plantation shutters, and a wall of pocket sliding glass doors leading to a private, fenced yard with a covered lanai. The open air pool has an attached spa.The home was fit with new furnishings and decor in 2014 to make for an amazing, calming vacation retreat. Best of all, it is a short 1/2 mile from the white sands and clear aquamarine water of Vanderbilt Beach and the up-scale Ritz-Carlton Hotel. You are also just steps away from a walk/jog/bike path leading directly to Delnor-Wiggens Beach. This natural, serene beach, without high-rises or houses is great for total relaxation. Take the beach chairs, towels, umbrella, and beach toys and enjoy the day on the powder sugar, white sand beaches. Rent jet-skis, a boat, kayaks, or paddle boards and explore the Gulf of Mexico. Build sand castles, spend the day shelling or just sunbathe. Take in the sights, sounds, and smells of the salt water! Visit a near-by marina for a fishing charter or sunset cruise. Afterwards, enjoy the world-class shopping and dining all located within a few miles.
Shop for groceries at Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and Publix all located within 1 1/2 miles of our home. Enjoy cooking in our gourmet well-equipped kitchen, grill poolside or pack a picnic for the beach. A picnic is a great way to enjoy the fabulous Gulf sunsets! Delicious prepared foods can be found at all the nearby grocery stores.
After a day at the beach, The Mercato, a newly built shopping & dining complex is only 3 blocks away.
