Among the rarest of all vacation homes in Northwest Florida, the opulent Villa Vittoria stands proudly on the beach, hosts a large private pool, and is well positioned in a discreet, gated community in the center of Destin. With prominent architectural styling that is seemingly imported from the shores of Tuscany, this sun-splashed villa incorporates old world sophistication in a pristine beachfront setting.
A total of eighteen fortunate guests may be accommodated in this four-story beach-side residence. With the majestic views of the emerald jeweled toned waters in mind, Villa Vittoria’s main living areas are well placed on the second floor. This level includes an open Great Room with a family room, formal dining area and state-of-the-art kitchen. Rich travertine marble flooring flows from room to room and a wall of windows with double doors provides access to a covered balcony along with vivid views of the glistening gulf. A plush couch faces the fireplace and flat screen TV while chic armchairs encourage convivial conversation. The formal dining area has a large wooden oval table in a dark chocolate color that sits beside three walls of windows and is flanked by matching carved sculpted chairs. The center of the Great Room has two bars topped with gleaming granite counter tops that face the gourmet kitchen. Two sets of decorative metal button topped bar seats make this a perfect place for entertaining. In addition, this level of the home also features a guest bedroom with a comfortable king sized bed and access to the full hall bathroom.
Proceeding to the third level of Villa Vittoria, there is a sensational beach-side master suite which includes a private sitting area with a sleeper sofa, of course a beachfront balcony, and an elegant private master bathroom. In addition to the master suite the third level also includes two additional guest bedrooms each equipped to provide all the comforts of home.
The entire top-floor of this luxurious beachfront Destin home has been dedicated to the paramount vistas of the Gulf of Mexico. An expansive observation deck affords views that are truly spectacular, especially the dazzling sunsets over the water during the winter months and romantic full moons in the summer. Adjacent to the look-out is a tower room den that features a convenient wet bar and restroom facilities.
Back at sea level, the beach home features a large room ideal for the children that is accessible from a spiral staircase in the main living area. Bedding here includes two twin bunks accommodating four and a queen size bed, for the nanny, teens, or a place for several kids to pile up! Just outside, an expansive sun deck with several chair of leisurely lounging that accompany a 12x28 beach-side swimming pool and a 6x6 soaking tub.
