Count Your Blessings is a stunning two story 3-bedroom 2 1/2-bath teal-colored home in quiet Cassine Village. The beauty of this house lies in its decor and quiet setting yet close proximity to the beach, food and things to do. We hope to make this our home soon but until then we want to share its blessings with you.
The front of the house features a covered porch with Adirondack chairs and a rocker for two to cuddle on. The 2nd floor front porch looks north toward the forest is accessed from the Master Bedroom and is equipped with ceiling fans that provides you with a breeze when the sea breeze fails to deliver. A perfect place to be on those days when the Florida sunshine come in the liquid form.
The back of the house features screen porches on each floor. The 1st floor porch has a bistro table and stools along with a couch and two chairs including cushions and looks out on the live oaks and shaded by two palms. The same palms frame the 2nd floor screened porch that is accessed from the twin and queen bedrooms. The upstairs screened porch is perfect for a game of cards or an afternoon nap with a comfortable L-shaped sofa that feels like you are in a treehouse. Grab your book, your glass of wine or cup of coffee and enjoy either, and listen for the waves rolling into the beach a short distance away.
Inside the front door, you are greeted by a bench created by an artist local to the area that is equipped with beach towels for you to grab as you head for the beach. The high ceilings in every room keep the house cool on all but the hottest days. You will find the amenities needed for your first-class vacation including the connectivity of Wi-Fi and cable . The sitting area has two couches, one that pulls out into a queen-sized sofa bed, two chairs, a map table and reading lamps. For your entertainment, a 55-in. wall mounted television with a Blu-ray player with a collection of DVDs and Roku attached, a stereo with a hookup for your iPod along with televisions in each bedroom will give you options. All the furniture is comfortable and classy. The walls are highlighted with fun artwork and large shuttered windows. An eclectic blue green chandelier is centered over a large dining room table with seating for 8, a drop-leaf craft table and a kitchen counter with 4 bar stools, half bath, fully equipped laundry room and kitchen complete the first floor.
The second floor features a poster bed in the master bedroom, its own bathroom with a two sink vanity and large shower. The other two bedrooms are joined by a Jack and Jill bathroom with a shower tub and are decorated in peaceful pastels with unique artwork in every room.
The beach is about a 7-minute walk across 30A to the sugar white sand of the gulf. On the way to and from the beach access you pass on of two neighborhood pools, the tennis court, nature trail and pond that has a daytime fountain that keeps the entire neighborhood a little cooler in the summer than the surrounding area. The bike path that runs the length of 30A is about a 45 second ride from the back door. The house comes with two adult bikes and there are several bike rentals, paddle board, golf cart and kayak rental locations a short walk away.
Chef owner stocked the kitchen for cooking in style. If you need a break from the kitchen, Brozinni pizza parlor, The Perfect Pig and Cafe 30A restaurants, Goatfeather's seafood market, and Donut Hut, our local favorites, are just a short stroll away. For more variety, there are another 20+ restaurants in either direction along 30A. We are about 1 mile east of Seaside on 30A and 5 miles from famous Grayton Beach.
One of two Community Pools is only three lots down for a quick dip and tennis courts are located behind the pool. Bike, walk, enjoy!! You will be quickly lulled into relaxing and getting away from it all!
