The two-story beach house features an efficient floor plan designed to cut energy use and costs with its open layout and massive windows that allow natural light in.
The elevated, shady entry porch creates a warm welcome. It’s also a nice place for rocking chairs that are perfect for relaxing on lazy summer days as you wave to neighbors passing by. Inside, the soaring foyer gives you a great sightline of the open living space. The shared living and dining room extends to the covered lanai via pocket sliders while the adjacent kitchen offers plenty of counter space and a large island.
Two bedrooms sharing a hall bath are tucked away behind the double garage which features a golf cart space. The primary bedroom, on the other hand, occupies the left-wing boasting a relaxing ensuite, two equally sized walk-in closets, and direct access to the outdoor kitchen.
Upstairs, you’ll find a secluded studio or fourth bedroom that comes with its own bath and balcony. This would make a great artist’s workshop or writer’s retreat.
