478 Gulf Bend Dr
Asking Price $1,895,000
Perfect is the best way to describe this unique and beautiful beach house. Completely rebuilt and remodeled in 2015 and sited with a primary focus on views of the sea, creating spectacular privacy without any homes interrupting the vistas. The soaring cathedral ceilings in the open concept living and kitchen areas will take your breath away. From the beautiful stone fireplace, custom-made wrought iron spiral staircase, to the lighted round alcove at the peak of the cathedral ceilings, this great room is spectacular.
The custom crafted kitchen area features gleaming wood cabinetry with granite countertops, professional gas cooktop, and a dining bar. Enjoy the luxurious formal dining room facing the Gulf with a built-in custom bar all the while surrounded by the views and sunsets. The master suite is equally impressive with its own incredible views of the Gulf, built-in study/office area, a dazzling master en-suite bath with walk-in shower and dual vanity spaces, plus a huge master closet with customized shelves and cabinets. The first level also offers a perfect guest suite with bath tucked away in the northeast section of the house. Facing the Gulf, the covered screen room and fabulous porch await with built-in spa, circular seating area, outdoor dining and grilling spaces, plus fully automatic retractable awnings.
At the top of the magnificent spiral staircase is another oasis with two additional guest room areas. One is a bedroom with dramatic views of the Gulf and beach, while the other is currently being used as office and den with wet bar... the perfect spot to work or enjoy the sunsets and sparkling waters of the gulf. Between the two top story rooms is a covered breezeway that doubles as open covered porch and with the push of a button can become the ultimate screen porch with supreme views. Climb one more flight to a third story lookout porch with ample space for relaxing, sunbathing, or just watching the sunsets.
This amazing property is built to the highest wind standards with impact windows, Hardie board siding, strapping, etc. Beautiful private walk path to the beach surrounded by native seaside trees and plants. This property will also include a Class "A" membership to the Safety Harbor Club to enjoy community boat dock slips, neighborhood heated pool, ferry landing, restaurant, and clubhouse.
