From the moment you approach this Abaco Lane home on the gulf side in Rosemary Beach, you know you have arrived somewhere special. Newly constructed by acclaimed builder Benecki Homes of Atlanta, the character and exceptional quality of the home are readily apparent. Enter the courtyard to be greeted by a tranquil expanse of gleaming white peacock pavers that lead you to a glistening aqua dipping pool. As you enter the residence your senses are further delighted by softly curving Venetian plaster walls and a gracefully arched passage that allows a glimpse of massive, rustic wood beams in the living room. This room is a beautiful, bright space that evokes the feel of the beach, tastefully decorated, as it is throughout, by Melanie Turner Interiors in soft whites like the sand and watery blues. The clean white peacock pavers continue throughout the first floor of the home. A fabulous oyster shell light fixture suspends over a surf board shaped, sleek, white dining table and a driftwood "tree" further enhance the fact that you have arrived at the beach. Your eye is drawn to delightfully oversized vintage hangar lights over a waterfall edged marble island in the wonderfully uncluttered kitchen, where cabinetry looks more like elegant furniture...if not for the awesome professional Wolf range. Open a few doors to discover dual Gaggenau refrigerators and dishwasher and a neatly organized composting drawer. Much of the storage function of the kitchen may be glimpsed through an adjacent opening that showcases dishes and glassware on thick slab wood shelves gracefully suspended across a double window. An oversized pantry is located beside. Also off the living area, and accessible from the courtyard is an elegant powder room with a gorgeous marble countertop. Before ascending the steps, see one of the master suites, ideally located on the first floor. A lovely whitewashed four poster bed greets you and sets the stage for the serene feel of the room, finished with smooth shiplap walls. A beautiful spa like bathroom is graced with a large natural stone shower and double vanity with Waterworks faucet. A graceful black iron bannister leads you up wire brushed oak steps flanked by continuing silky soft plaster walls to the second level where you find three gorgeously appointed bedrooms, two guest and one a master. The exquisite furnishings extend here as well as the soft, inviting color palate. Each guest room has an elegant, private bath and ample closet space and one has a french door to the balcony overlooking the courtyard and pool. Enter the master through double doors and immediately your eye is drawn to the coffered pecky cypress ceiling, and the room is furnished so beautifully it is like an oasis of tranquility. A gorgeous marble bathroom hosts a sleekly polished metal soaking tub, an expansive marble double vanity and floor to ceiling marble spa-like shower. A very generous master closet is a welcome bonus, as well as access to a balcony overlooking the tree lined boardwalk to the beach and the lovely courtyard below. Also located off the second floor landing is a fabulous "double" laundry complete with two sets of Electrolux washer/dryer units, stacked. Follow the wonderfully windowed staircase that seems to float to the third floor and discover even more than you would imagine. Not only a large playroom like living area, but awesome bunk spaces tucked beside that may accommodate ten very comfortably! And there is of course another beautiful bathroom with large walk in shower and double vanity. There is still more around the corner...a theatre room with luxurious lounging chairs and wet bar, and beside it a smaller flex room that may be whatever you might like. This home lives large and may comfortably accommodate 20 guests....in the main house, but there is also a delightfully appointed private carriage house for welcoming another four guests. Come and experience this very special Rosemary Beach property for yourself, and know that you have arrived.
