This gracious beachfront vacation home tucked away in a lovely little world of its own sits upon a sugary dune in Old Florida Beach of Santa Rosa Beach. A walkover leads right off the back porch across the dune and down to your own bright white sand shoreline, where you can luxuriate in the glowing gulf. A sparkling community pool allows you to enjoy a freshwater dip before or after the beach. This exclusive little neighborhood is also nestled beside the shores of Draper Lake. These types of precious coastal dune lakes are scarce and found in very few other places in the world. Their magical mixture of salt and freshwater supports a vast abundance of wildlife. A dock is provided where you may try your luck at fishing, take a swim or paddle out onto the serene waters to enjoy the beauty of nature. Depending upon the tide, you'll also enjoy strolling down the sugary beach to where its estuary flows in or out from the Gulf.

Richly woven wicker backed cushioned furnishings provide a charm while a long creamy white dining table seat up to ten for family meals. The open kitchen has four raised seats beside a granite-topped bar where drinks and appetizers may be served. The contemporary kitchen with stainless steel appliances allows you to create a fun family feast and a Keurig Coffee machine is ready to deliver freshly brewed joe in the morning. You will find yourself wanting to spend most of your time out on the expansive porch that spans across the back of the living area overlooking the sensational seascape.
