*** This Property has a long-term tenant in a side apartment***
Tucked among the trees on a quiet street that borders Stallworth Lake sits this welcoming, tropical villa. Behind the bright Caribbean turquoise facade, you'll find four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and a sparkling private pool. With enough square footage to host 14 people with ease, large groups and families will adore this comfy, spacious home that's close to the sandy beach and a five-minute drive to the shopping and dining at Gulf Place Town Center.
The main floor living and dining area is expansive and airy? and filled with bright Florida sunshine. Soaring vaulted ceilings, large windows with transoms, and lots of recessed lighting create an open, spacious feeling. Two sofas sit on blond wood floors and face a flatscreen television. Glass paneled doors lead out to the sun-kissed deck space with plenty of room for lounging and gazing out over the treetops to the nearby gulf.
In the fully equipped kitchen, light wood cabinets are topped with gleaming slabs of marble countertops. Stainless steel appliances include an extra-large refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, and coffee maker. The range is located in the spacious kitchen island, which also has casual barstool seating for two. Nearby, the formal dining table has enough room for eight people to gather together at mealtimes. Your entire crew will love to hang out in this inviting space to chat over mugs of coffee and muffins or while packing up snacks for the beach. There's also a cozy breakfast nook with additional seating.
Also on the main floor are three private bedrooms with plenty of flexible sleeping space for everyone. The first bedroom has a queen-size bed, a flatscreen television, and an ensuite bathroom with a tub/shower combo. The second bedroom also has a queen-size bed, flatscreen television, balcony access, and an attached bathroom. The third bedroom is the bunk room and features a full-over-full size bunk bed, flatscreen television, and access to the patio. Just outside the bunk room is a bonus sitting area with a pull-out sofa.
Climb the stairs to the third level and the ultra-private master suite. A luxe king-size bed sits underneath a vaulted ceiling with a lovely, palm-leaf-motif ceiling fan. There's a flatscreen television, plenty of storage, and a full bathroom with two pedestal sinks, a soaking tub, and a separate, step-in shower. Glass doors lead outside to the soaring, secluded balcony with a birds-eye view of the treetops.
Head back downstairs and outside to the shimmering private pool. This lagoon-like oasis is surrounded by privacy-providing trees yet still remains sun-drenched and inviting. Kick back in one of the lounge chairs and work on your tan, or relax in the shade with a cold drink and a good book. For a fun-filled day on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico, the beach access point is a short walk or bike ride away. And for an afternoon or a night out, take a quick drive to the crowd-pleasing Gulf Place Town Center. Bishop House strikes that rare, perfect balance between private, restful retreat and centrally-located South Walton home base.
