Nestled between the Intracoastal Waterway and the ocean, this coastal home enjoys sunshine, shade trees and invites you to slow down, revel in the sea breeze and exhale. Built to exacting standards from both a construction and design perspective, every detail was carefully considered and steps taken to preserve the native landscaping which affords delicious privacy. Pavered driveway can hold a handful of cars with room for your boat and golf cart so be prepared for a long line of guests as soon as they learn your new address. The nuts and bolts person will love the Hardiboard siding, metal hip roof and impact glass windows and doors.

The aesthete will be smitten with the interior so let’s check it out together. Leave your shoes and your cares on the front porch and step into your new life. Diffused sunshine streams in through many windows and softly illuminates the interior. Versatile and generous gathering space can be arranged to suit your style. Owners enjoy living area with media up front, dining in the middle and casual seating across from kitchen. Screened porch leads to an enormous deck for al fresco dining under a solar-powered chandelier – you may never eat inside again! The kitchen will inspire your culinary muse with an abundance of cabinets, counterspace, separate coffee and cocktail bar, pantry and bar seating for 4. I especially love the backsplash which is reminiscent of beach glass and adds rich blues and greens to the mix.

With 4 bedrooms, there is room for everyone you love to comfortably visit. Large front bedroom has a private 1/2 bath and is adjacent to laundry closet where on-demand water heater is located. Tucked out of sight, this also makes a quiet office if you work from home. En-suite main bedroom is at the back of the house. A serene retreat at day’s end, you’ll sleep soundly and wake to plan a new adventure. Large shower will rinse off the sand and salt from your swim or you can use the outdoor one on the deck. Two guest rooms are in the middle just off the kitchen and share the hall bath.

Indoor/outdoor living is seamless here. Leave the French doors open and take advantage of the screened porch for your morning coffee. The deck is just amazing and your imagination will take flight as you start planning the first of many parties. Bikes, boards and other beach toys fit nicely in the large storage building with electrical power and barn doors for easy access. Smaller 2nd shed is good for garden tools and the west side of the house has room for kayak storage. The property is fully fenced on 3 sides and the back, sides and front are all pavered so cross yard work off your list.

The ICW is a block away to the west and you can put in kayaks at the end of Third or Fourth St so you can explore the neighborhood from the water. The beach is 4 blocks to the east and there is room for golf cart parking. Cap’s, a favorite restaurant with locals and visitors alike, is two blocks away so you can walk and enjoy a fine waterfront meal and a colorful sunset at the same time. Primary residence, 2nd home, short-term rental for the income stream when you are traveling elsewhere – it’s up to you how best to enjoy every inch of this North Beach gem.
