The Veranda, designed with all ages in mind, is a beautiful upscale beachfront home created to comfortably host weddings, family gatherings, retreats, and other larger groups.
A front and center beach experience awaits amidst unsurpassed views from the 100-foot beachfront lot directly off of the private boardwalk.
Our nationally accredited architect and creative design team appointed the home in cultural detail. This beautiful home boasts rich flavor such as a shaded veranda on the street side, ‘haint’ blue porch ceiling, oak flooring, Alabama marble in the powder rooms, and regional artwork. The casually elegant furnishings compliment the beautiful color of the Gulf water.
Upon arrival, you will find convenient ample parking and an elevator that services every level of the home. The large covered parking area has event lighting, electricity, and speakers can be provided to allow for receptions that may not choose live music. Stairs from this area ascend to the main deck on the gulf side with it’s swimming pool and outdoor kitchen. Going Up! The elevator doors open to an open floor plan on the main level with sweeping views of the gulf. A large flat screen TV with surround sound, DVD/BluRay player, and Apple TV convert the living room with ample seating to a media room for families, slide shows for receptions, and powerpoint presentations for meeting groups.
The kitchen, dining area, and a buffet work together to provide meals for large groups efficiently. Hobbyist chefs will love the Wolf 8 burner gas range, 2 1/2 ovens, infinite refrigerator space, and freestanding commercial ice machine around the corner, along with the beach view even from the kitchen.
One rectangular table for 10, two round tables for 6 each, and bar style seating for 3 allow 25 + to eat without even leaving the dining area. Three dishwashers, a large trash can, and two sinks simplify cleanup even for large groups.
Three large French doors open onto the large covered main deck and its incredible beach view, the dune walkover, the outdoor kitchen with luxury 48′ gas grill, and the heated swimming pool with multiple light options for your event. When not listening to the waves, ceiling speakers allow music while enjoying the pool, a cocktail party/reception, sunbathing or reading a book.
There are two handicap friendly bedroom/bathrooms on the main level, including wide doorways, roll-in showers, grab bars, compliant toilets, roll under sinks, and 5+ foot bathroom turnaround. These beautiful rooms and baths will be enjoyed by all, the southmost of these being right off the main deck with a gorgeous view of the deck and beach from the bed. For guests with handicap needs, please call to discuss all aspects of accessibility and needs related to the house.
All 10 of the bedrooms in the house have luxurious beds, a closet, a mirror, private baths, flat screen TVs, ceiling fans, reading lights at both sides of each bed, outlets for electronic devices at the bedside, and best of all: water views – the Gulf to the south, the Lagoon to the north, or a view of both!
The second floor has 5 of the bedrooms, two of these directly gulf front with the 2nd-floor living/media room also on the south side in the middle. This room has comfortable seating and all the electronic amenities of the main floor living room. So groups can split up to watch different movies or sports or different power point presentations. Beautiful views of the beach are seen again, and a French door leads to a covered seating area. As on the main deck, this deck also extends the full width of the house, the sides to the extreme east and west being sun decks. These living rooms and decks can accommodate a sizable reception/party. A queen-sized sleeper sofa is in the 2nd-floor living room.
The third floor (for some) can function as the bride/groom/honeymoon floor. A cozy living room, wet bar, shower for two, jacuzzi tub, walk-in closet, and two king beds are on this floor. The bed chambers open onto the top gulf side deck and the elevated views up and down the coast are spectacular.
The Veranda can be combined with its sister beach house, Veranda Laguna, a 6 bedroom / 6-1/2 bath house across the street. This combination provides both Gulf and Lagoon front access, two heated pools, parking for 20+ cars, and sleeping for 46+ in 16 bedrooms.
Wonderful memories will be made at The Veranda.
