Wasted Time has a sensational location is in the exclusively gated Old Florida Beach residential enclave – beside the beautiful beach and the large coastal dune lake Draper Lake. The neighborhood features a private community pool with a lovely patio for sunning and convenient bathroom facilities. This gracious vacation home has a gorgeous lakefront beach setting with a staircase leading down the sugary dune to its own dock where you may relax and have morning coffee, take in the wildlife in the late afternoon, or and go fishing. It is the only rental available on Draper Lake. Coastal Dune Lakes like this one are a true treasure and a rare natural phenomenon –found hardly anywhere else in the world. They provide an abundant natural habitat for fish and wildlife. A creek-like estuary crosses over the coastal dune to the Gulf and creates an exotic salted freshwater mix as the waters flow in different directions depending upon the tides. Get a kayak or paddleboard to enjoy exploring the lake, catch some fish, or skim across to the bright white beach!
This home takes full advantage of its heavenly waterfront location with stunning views of Draper Lake, the coastal dunes, the shimmering white beach, and glowing waters of the jewel-toned Gulf. It is placed high up on a dune and rises three stories tall so you may experience the precious panoramic views from every level. Two floors of open columned porches wrap three sides of the house with views of the spectacular seascape and natural areas that surround the home. The bright open living area on the first floor has walls of floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors leading out to the comfortably furnished veranda, which provides sweeping panoramic views. This Great Room encompasses the living, kitchen, and dining areas. A light wraparound couch and two armchairs face these views, along with a wall-mounted flatscreen TV above a mantle. Thick amber and terracotta-toned tile flooring flows throughout, providing a rich classic look. A rustic, tropically inspired rectangular hardwood dining table with eight high-backed straw woven chairs sits beneath a charming multi-candled lantern. The open state-of-the-art kitchen nearby has a long gleaming white bar with saddle stools for wining and dining. Cream-colored custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances inspire a fun family feast.
