Story-Book Cottage on 1.3 Acres in Point Washington

1703 Pt Washington Rd, East

This story-book  Florida cottage, situated on 1.389 acres, offers plenty of privacy in the popular Point Washington area of South Walton. Located only a few miles to the beaches of Seagrove, Seaside, WaterColor and Grayton Beach, Pt Washington is truly the heart of South Walton. Only a short distance to the bay, this 3 bed, 2 bath home brings you close to nature and outdoor living. Over 600sq ft of screened porches extends the living space greatly, much of the year. Another rare find is the two car garage, with ample room for additional shelving and storage. Cedar siding, masonry chimney for the wood-burning fireplace with custom mantle, metal roof with hand-cut rafter tails, and 2×6 frame construction on concrete block foundation make this a solid-built home with cottage appeal.

10ft ceilings throughout with solid white oak hardwood flooring, granite counter tops in kitchen, with custom reach-in pantry cabinets (which include plug-ins for microwave and toaster oven), subway tile back-splash, decorative hood vent, gas cook top, with electric convection oven. Bathrooms feature ceramic tile flooring, counter tops and shower surrounds; beadboard wainscot to door height, custom raised vanities and custom linen cabinet. Ample storage throughout the home, with linen closet in hall, storage cabinets above closets in additional bedrooms, and much more room for additional shelving in garage. Outside storage building currently used to store plywood window and door coverings for hurricane season. Other details include exterior tapered solid wood columns, ceiling fans on screened porches, recessed dimming lights on front porch.

Easy to maintain expansive yard, filled with native plants like Live Oak and Magnolia Trees, Wax Myrtle, Saw Palmetto and Indian Hawthorne, gives added privacy. Across the street is the Pt Washington State Forest providing additional privacy. Pea gravel driveway and walkways, with garage at back of home. If you are looking for a place to get away from it all, but still be close to everything, this home is a must see.
