You can look from Pensacola to Apalachicola; but, you will not find a waterfront jewel to compare with this quality of home, this serene view, this nature loving lifestyle, or this wholesome town location. It's a fact, well learned by the current owners; as they dedicated a summer to just such a search, before making this fortunate discovery. All this; and, you are a stone's throw to the most beautiful beaches in the world. The architect is the highly sought, well respected, Matthew Savoie. He achieved views of Rocky Bayou from almost every room in the home, including all four bedrooms. The style is a brilliantly imagined contemporary Acadian. The property rests east of a nature preserve wetland; and, across the road from natural foliage; offering rare private, nature views. The only visible neighbor is on the east side. It sits on a quiet, low traffic loop, off a main neighborhood road. Across the bayou; which in actuality is a small bay, off the Choctawhatchee Bay; is Rocky Bayou State Park, where no houses will be built. The sun's rising and falling is visible over the bayou, from your very own pier. There are days when the beauty of the moon's rising rivals these. The pier is complete with a boat, a lift with canopy, two small vessel lifts, a fish cleaning station, lights & water, a boat slip, and a lower platform. The pier was constructed to the side, which is screened by two majestic magnolia trees; under which the current owner built a breezy two level deck. This wise placement allows your view to the water to be free of other piers; which is the unfortunate outcome of most bay/bayou properties. Matthew Savoie designed renovations for the current owner; including the pool kitchen with fabulous granite countertops; the master sunroom; and, the spacious second level screened in room. Also; newly renovated by Cox Pools, is the now travertine decked, heated pool; with shooting water features, multi-color lights, & fountain spa. There is a poolside screened in room, with a shower; and, a half bath just inside the huge basement storage; as well as a separate two car garage. The current owners completely fenced the property, with a custom designed gate at the driveway entrance, arbor gate at the end of the driveway, and a friendly neighbor path & gate on the southeast side of the back garden. There are now beautiful palms, camellias, crepe myrtles, oaks, river birch, magnolias, savanna hollies, azalea, hydrangea, oleander, bird of paradise, caladium, sea grasses, stone paths, lighting, etc.; throughout the rolling landscape. There's even a darling little arched bridge over a dry rock creek. On the main level is a chef's kitchen with a soaring wood and beamed ceiling, open to the third level balcony. Two steps down is the family room, with a floating brick fireplace; a guest bath; and, the dining/living room and entrance room; entered into from a cozy front porch with gas lanterns. The master wing has a 'to-die-for' office, sunroom, marble bath with soaking tub, large shower, two basins, and a pair of closets. O; and, there is a great work-out/media room too. Upstairs, are the three guest bedrooms, two full baths, a large storage closet, and an even larger walk-in storage room. Up here, the rain sounds divine on the metal roof.
