Located on a vast private shoreline and within view of the East Pass jetties beyond, sits an innately Southern gulf front home with a certain New England charm. A light and happy place, Footprints by the Sea. The emerald green sea is endless here, interrupted only by miles of snow-white beaches or a fishing boat headed out to sea. 55 Lands End Drive - A home without pretense but with a subtle grandeur seen only in spaces and places where privilege is a rite of passage, an assumption. This house makes a statement all its own without a need to boast. Verandas run deep and rocking chairs line porches, all intended for sunset crescendos and gentle gulf breezes. French doors and windows link all elevations and frame the clear waters just beyond. Charming exteriors lead to a Brazilian hardwood.. front door and hint at what lies beyond. The two-story foyer is wide and welcoming. The home's finishes, an understated blend of hardwoods, shiplap, teak and reclaimed brick are natural yet refined. All floors are accessible by private elevator or wide, open staircases. A spotless 2-car garage and expanded storage occupy the first floor. The kitchen is the kind you feel a part of no matter on which side of the bar you stand. White cabinets are accented by neutral walls and white counters. A Thermador 5 burner stove top, Bosch dishwasher, Thermador double ovens and a warming drawer hint that the owner is a chef but one that welcomes all in the kitchen. Be sure to claim a seat at the curved teak counter where casual meals are served and conversations tend to linger. The main living room is a comfortable haven of blues and neutrals, centered around a welcoming wood-burning fireplace encased in old Savannah Gray brick. The living area is served by a separate wet bar with icemaker and mini-fridge. For those rare serious moments, a separate office is located just off the living room. Just off the kitchen rests a favorite alcove, a space well-crafted for relaxation and designed with nothing but water in mind. Deep cushions line long windows, a welcome respite for the morning's coffee or the evening's Port. A main-floor bedroom with private bath leads to its own private balcony. The main floor is completed by plentiful decorative storage, a convenient powder room and a laundry room. Two spacious gulf front bedrooms share a rocking chair flanked balcony on the third floor. The eastern guest master bedroom has a double sink bath and walk in shower. There is also a reading alcove that overlooks the home's 70' of private beach and walkover. A gulf front master bedroom occupies the western portion of the third floor where reading chairs sit just under sunset views. A white-washed brick fireplace is flanked by a private wet bar and dual master closets. The master bath includes a walk-in shower, sauna and a jetted tub. Two additional bedrooms overlook the lake to the north from their own private balcony. Both bedrooms enjoy private baths. For convenience, there is a second laundry room and a linen closet located adjacent to the upstairs bedrooms. One breath-taking view remains just up the stairs - the rooftop viewing area. It is meant for celebrating the catch with the fishermen headed back to harbor or the last rays of the sun as it sinks leisurely beyond the horizon. Destin Pointe is a guard-gated, gulf front neighborhood with two community swimming pools and private tennis courts. With two picturesque community lakes and 3000 feet of private beaches, Destin Pointe amenities are plentiful. 25' Side Building Setbacks in Destin Pointe allow for maximum privacy. Within walking distance to the harbor and boat rental or dockage, a lifestyle of both beaching and boating is enjoyed by many owners. This immaculate home includes a new aluminum roof and new travertine tile on all balconies. Vacation rentals are allowed in Destin Pointe. A first-year rental income of $250,000 may be expected at 55 Lands End Drive. Please call for a private showing.
