PICTURE THIS: Year 1977 overlooking high cliffs of the NW Pacific Coast. Now jump to NW FL Gulf Coast 2018! Yes, this jewel was found by the Owner upon arrival 41 years ago! Serene & tucked away in a discreet quiet oasis, on a highest point of the Gulf borders, at 38.2 ft above Sea Level, there was a "cozy home" on this rare notable property. Total privacy today from all its neighbors is the Classic OLD FLORIDA style beachfront home with high 10 foot pine wood beamed ceilings, oversized louvre doors, concrete block & rebar for extra strength; all still remain in place today with an open floor plan. For full description of the property, refer to MLS #782657 which portrays important details of this Lot. With a mindset of peacefulness, relaxation, thankfulness & heartfelt joy, the dream of a lifetime became reality for its new Owner. The due south exposure, unobstructed views forever extending 180 degrees east to west, this pie shaped lot provides privacy with its 87 feet of Deeded Beach Front extending to the waters' edge & Mean High Water Line (MHWL). Coastal edges are "Fortified" by an "Interlocking Armor Wall" 27 ft high with 6 ft below Sea Level, installed with "Steel Anchored Tie Backs" that protrude from the Shore Guard Industrial Bulkhead into the solid bluff with FDEP Permit. The Owner gutted the 1-story summer retreat built mid 50's. Our famous FL State Senator, founder of DAG, Destin's 1st architectural firm, Charlie Clary restored the original design of the home in mid-80's using existing style with true Mexican Tile, Hand-Lathed Plaster walls, a touch of natural pine, oak accents, new windows & door openings with bright white wood-beamed ceilings. This airy rejuvenation brings the indigenous outdoors' nature into the home with abundant respect of Marine Life (Manatees, Sea Turtles & hatchlings, Big Blue Herons, Dolphins) & "pristine untouched beaches" still in place today. Fish, Crab or collect Sand Dollars along the Gulf or Big Redfish Lake viewed directly from the High Point pergola where you will find your own private beach walkover thru the flowering dunes. The entire Lot is dense with old native Oaks, Magnolia, Yaupon & Majestic Indian Hawthorne, along with deep rooted nestled Palms providing shade & privacy. The original Servant Quarters were restored as a connected Carriage-Style Studio with a 2nd kitchen & its' own Master Bedroom / Bath. With added advantage of connection directly to the Main House or use of sliding glass doors to the beach or street parking areas, the Main 1st Level affords 4 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms entirely on a single floor. The 2nd level was completed 2001 with privacy to focus on "ROI" using the main original structure. With steel pilings & beam, support of the upper level, open floor concept, within the original footprint of the house & extending 5 feet above the existing roof with an attic/crawl space between the 2 floors. This level adds a 3rd kitchen / living area, another master bedroom/bath, sleeping/office room & another full bathroom +laundry room, exterior private stairs to the beach with its own Pergola deck and interior stairway leading to 300 sq ft room currently used for storage & entry passage way. Continual updates thru 2017 include Quartz countertops on main level kitchen & baths with walls & ceilings all in fresh pine, natural stone Travertine. The new crawl space between the 2 levels affords for future restoration on the 1st level for exposure of the original full wood-beamed ceilings to extend into the kitchen to re-open its original view to the Gulf Waters with walkabout floor space making this the focal point of the entire home. Bringing this full house usable as 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, extra room / storage as passage to 2nd level, 3 living spaces including 3 kitchens, 3 AC units, 3 HW units & 2 Laundry facilities with all spaces connecting interior & exterior between both levels, 2 separate & private beach dune walkways; 8 vehicle parking includes 2 car garage with workbench / storage. This home is easy use "as is" with convertible spaces - one large single fa
