Rare find in Gulf Breeze proper on an oversized corner lot in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by mature oak and hickory trees. The 4BR/3.5BA, 3048 sq ft house with a screened pool sides a private lane offering additional parking to the two-car garage/driveway and is across the street from Pensacola Bay. The owner is an architect who designed this home for his family 25 years ago. First floor features include a dining area and an expansive living area with soaring ceilings, custom built-ins, maple hardwood flooring, fresh paint and tons of natural light from a multitude of wood-clad windows, doors and skylight. The large kitchen showcases a Viking range, granite countertops, an under-stair pantry, and counter seating for 6 or more people. An open and adjoining breakfast area looks out to the enclosed pool and has a custom built-in shelf/counter unit. A spacious master bedroom is downstairs with private access to the pool and has his/her walk in closets. Also downstairs is a powder room and a newly-renovated laundry room with a chute from the second floor. Upon climbing the stairs to the second floor, you arrive at a loft area that is open to the first floor and has a built-in entertainment unit. The second floor includes three large bedrooms each easily accommodating a king-size bed, and each bedroom includes a walk-in closet (or two). One bedroom has a private bath and the other two bedrooms share a jack-n-jill bath. The third floor is accessible by a custom-built ladder and is a gem in the home. This crow?s nest room is surrounded by windows on three sides with breathtaking views of the trees and neighborhood, and it features a built-in desk that makes for a great office, reading room, or playroom. In the backyard you will find a hand-laid brick courtyard with a New Orleans fountain. The screened back porch is a great place to grill outside under cover.
