Frangista Beach is one of the newest treasures to be developed along Scenic Gulf Drive in Miramar Beach. This prestigious, upscale residential community on the Gulf of Mexico, has a private gated beach and a wonderful mix of custom built homes which have been newly completed in recent years. The architectural mix includes columned neoclassical designs, terracotta roofed Mediterranean homes and charming “Old Florida” styled residences with wide breezy porches. It has a fantastic location next to the beach, halfway between the popular Pompano Joe's restaurant and The Whale's Tail. Besides the private beach access, Frangista Beach also has a centrally located, landscaped mini oasis of sorts. This contains a refreshing community pool complete with showers, dressing areas and bathroom facilities.
Ocean Reef Realty is pleased to have two great Real Estate offerings here.
The first at 53 Hollywood Street called Frangista Costa, is a 3,159 square foot, nostalgic Old Florida styled home with four bedrooms and four full baths. This square columned, three story home has soft, salmon colored and cream exteriors as well as a gleaming tin roof. The open porch on the first floor has soaring ceilings and a covered, railed balcony above. An open smaller look out balcony is located on the third floor with gorgeous views of the Gulf of Mexico. This home comes beautifully and comfortably furnished with designs completed by a professional interior decorator who used natural, pleasing earth tones for color. A large living room adjoins the dining area with an inlayed wooden table and has woven straw chairs for six. An open breakfast bar nearby seats three more. The sleek, modern, gourmet kitchen has shiny, stainless steel appliances which open into both the living and dining areas. The white cabinetry is designed with double glass front shelving above a wide pass thru on one side and is accented by a mirror-like, dark granite counter top. Travertine marble flooring flows throughout. Two guest bedrooms with full baths are also on the first floor and can accommodate lots of guests. One has a queen sized bed and the other has chic looking, double bunk beds that sleep four.
Upstairs are two beautifully furnished Master Bedroom Suites with honey toned, hardwood floors and a private bath for each. Double glass doors lead from each suite out onto a connecting balcony. The big surprise of this home is the hideaway den on the third floor with its own viewing balcony that looks out onto the Gulf beyond. The gleaming hardwood floors continue up to this level that has a rich, cream colored sleeper sofa, a TV and a wood table with four chairs for playing cards or board games. You don't have to go far to get a beverage since there is also a mirrored wet bar, glass front mini refrigerator, a deep stainless steel sink and a shiny, dark granite counter top. Another surprise is the plunge pool in the back yard which has a checkered tile patio for lounging in the sun. It is no wonder that the hospitable Frangista Costa has an excellent rental history on Ocean Reef’s program, grossing over $40,000 on average and can sleep up to ten guests.
If you are looking for a larger home in the exclusive Frangista Beach community, you should see our offering at 125 Los Angeles Street. This 3,640 square foot home has seven bedrooms and seven and one half bathrooms! This designer furnished residence is the “cream of the cream” at Frangista Beach and has been famously featured on HGTV as well as in Coastal Living magazine. The light, blue sky exteriors are accented with pure white trim work with covered, railed balconies both front and back. The entire length of the house is flanked by a dozen tall palm trees for an impressive, curb side impact.
Here rich looking, brown molasses toned hardwood floors go from room to room. The Great Room is so large it actually has two sitting areas with plush sofas, decorative throw rugs and a large flat screen TV above custom built-in cabinetry. The adjacent dining area has a big square wooden table that has eight, great looking two toned chairs. Six more seats are nearby at the black pearl colored, granite bar. The gourmet kitchen has stainless steel appliances which are framed by custom wood cabinetry.
The main Master Bedroom Suite looks like something you might see in Europe or New Orleans with amber colored, alabaster-like walls, a sitting area that looks like a salon and glass doors that lead out onto the covered balcony. The Master Bath has a corner tub and a double vanity with bronze faucets matching the mottled, brown granite counter tops. A separate, clear glass shower has its own atrium window above which lets in natural light but also offers privacy.
Designers had a “field day” when they furnished this home since every bedroom and bath is decorated as its own unique showcase. Some are completed in light, pastel colors while others are more traditional, done in dark woods. One of them even has a wooden, four posted bed. The most whimsical, colorful guest room has two regular bunk bed sets and an additional almost queen sized double bed. This one bedroom can sleep up to eight kids! Another wonderful feature of this home is that it contains an entirely separate guest apartment in the back. This interior “guest house” has a nice sized living area, a glass topped dining table seating four and an open, ample kitchen. There are two bedrooms and a full bath in these quarters. Due to the size of this residence, a large number of friends and family can be accommodated here comfortably with everyone in beds.
