It’s more than sea-glass-tinted water that lends the vacation vibe here on the Crystal Coast. The laid back atmosphere, friendliness and quintessential southern charm of everyone you meet is a big part of why residents often proclaim they are “living the dream”. Being at The Beach is a joyous lifestyle and a welcome respite from the rush of the rest of the hectic world.
On Atlantic Beach, nostalgia reigns – evoking an admiration and affection for days gone by. Pastimes like digging sand castles ‘til dark, evening strolls at dusk or walking to The Circle for ice cream on hot summer days and nights are the simple pleasures of life at the seaside.
This house on East Atlantic is tucked away down a narrow beach street on a double lot brimming with classic coastal charm. The sellers took their 1950s beach bungalow, the epitome of relaxed and vintage appeal, merged the best of the old with new and made no compromise with respect to the character of the home. Creating a calming ambience was a side effect of the mix of natural elements of wood and glass with plenty of natural light, bringing the outdoors and the seaside serenity in. The blend of different types of timber, from knotty pine to honey-colored planks to shiplap painted a pickled grey, works seamlessly and feels cozy yet contemporary and clean.
The whole house has a laid-back spirit, perfect for entertaining in the bright and breezy summer or the cool and calm of winter. In this neighborhood, plenty of residents stay year-round, so you will never lack for guests. This home offers a modern kitchen, twin outside showers, and bonus rooms for office space, guests to come and stay or kids to play in all day! And… bear in mind, both the sun room and the master suite provide spots to slip away unnoticed and soak in the quiet and calm of this idyllic setting.
For anyone who grew up on the shore or dreams of living by the sea, this spot is the place to be: sunsets, sand dunes and sea shells… and where time slows down and heart rates quicken. This is love!
