Celebrate sun, sand, and sea in this dreamy cedar shake beach cottage, a rare jewel, located on highly sought after Duval Drive! Enjoy ”full on” ocean views from the 3rd floor tower viewing across the 37th St access and peaceful Lake Duval views from the fabulous, newly designed tiered back courtyard patio centered around an amazing fire place! Gutted to the studs, thoughtfully redesigned and renovated in 2012 by talented long time local architect (included new upstairs Master Retreat) with the utmost devotion to preserving the character of the classic cottage while incorporating the ”latest and greatest” of today’s materials, this true beach house will be your vacation home all year long! Hand-scraped wood floors and original vaulted wood and beamed ceilings echo the classic cottage theme while top notch appliances, finishes, kitchen, and amenities – all incorporated and constructed to the highest standards of quality – create a thoroughly divine lifestyle experience. Please note that the current den (represented on the MLS detail page as 3rd bedroom) was originally a bedroom but the wall was removed to suit the owners’ preferences…easy conversion to a true bedroom by reinstalling a wall.
Just a few of the noteworthy additional features are the super beachy private outdoor shower on the south side of the home, the large motor court accessed from 37th Ave South which can park several cars at once, impact doors and windows throughout, rust-free Emtek solid brass door hardware. A very important architectural detail is the fact that the second story addition is engineered as free standing and is not load bearing on the original structure.
