The Sand Dollar residence enjoys an enviable location in Destin, Florida, in the area known as the Panhandle, on the Gulf of Mexico.The thin stretch of coastline earned its moniker as the Emerald Coast due to its clear, emerald-green waters and fine, white sands. The sand on Destin's beaches is some of the whitest in the world, made of finely ground quartz crystal resembling the appearance of sugar. Destin is also praised for plentiful fishing, thus its title as the "World's Luckiest Fishing Village." The beach town offers challenging golf courses, spectacular sunsets, and fresh mouth-watering seafood.
The Sand Dollar is a six-bedroom, four-bathroom upscale beach house providing guests with 4000 square feet of a luxury spread between the main house and a carriage house connected by a lushly landscaped courtyard with a private pool. The home has an elegant coastal aesthetic with Pottery Barn and other designer furnishings.
The beautiful European white oak floors add warmth and sophistication to the kitchen and main living area. The kitchen is an expansive 30' wide and has plenty of room for several cooks. It comes fully stocked with stainless steel appliances and everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal. The dining table seats ten guests plus four at the bar and is open to the kitchen and living areas. The living room is light and airy and offers a variety of comfortable seating options and a 60" HDTV.
The main house features four bedrooms and three full bathrooms. One of the bedrooms is located on the first floor overlooking the pool area with two queen beds and a cosy sitting area. Upstairs, a stately master suite awaits guests with a four-post king bed, a queen sleeper sofa, and a private balcony where you can watch tangerine sunsets from one of the rocking chairs. When you need to get all dolled up, the spacious master bath offers his and hers sinks with plenty of counter space, a glass shower, and a jetted tub. The second master suite is as chic and welcoming as the first, featuring a king bed and a queen sleeper sofa.
It also features a built-in writing desk, a recently remodelled quartz countertop, a double vanity, and a glass tile shower. The third room features a twin-over-full bunk and an ensuite bathroom—perfect for the kids!
The guest cottage provides a romantic retreat with two rooms accessed separately through french doors—one king and one day bed with a pull-out trundle. The space also features a full bathroom, walk-in closet, and well-equipped kitchenette.
The lushly landscaped backyard offers a serene, relaxing area by the heated, Grecian-style pool or sways in the breeze on the built-in hammock. The backyard provides all the amenities one could desire for a beach house, including an outdoor rainfall shower, two dining tables, reclining lounge chairs, and a gas grill. Bikes, pool floats, toys, and beach gear are included for your enjoyment.
Crystal Beach is a lower-density area with two public beach accesses just a short walk away. Take a short stroll down the beach to the Crab Trap Restaurant for a cold drink and delicious appetizers at the beach bar. Camille's restaurant is just around the corner and is a great place to get your morning coffee or dinner with sushi and fresh seafood. You're also within walking distance of a large playground, a bookstore, and ice cream shops. Whether you're looking to reconnect with family and friends, relax poolside, or take a bike ride on the quiet streets, this house has all the amenities to provide a memorable week at the beach!
