Welcome to Paradise Found – A gorgeous waterfront estate with a 3-bedroom, 3.5 bath main home, detached two-story, two bedroom, 1.5 bath guesthouse, incredible Buck Island views and a seaside swimming pool. This Cotton Valley Shores estate recently went through a stunning transformation including a newly upgraded kitchen, luxurious master bedroom with a spa-like bathroom suite and beautifully renovated en suite guest baths. The kitchen was completed with upscale finishes including gorgeous quartz countertops that extend out for an eat-in bar, stainless steel appliances including a gas stove top with an electric oven, wine cooler and trash compactor, solid wood, crisp white cabinetry and new flooring, all positioned to open up to the living room and big Buck Island views. The estate is nestled behind a private gated entry and courtyard, complimented by lush tropical landscaping and blooming flora!
The professionally designed interior is a perfect blend of fresh island dÃÂ©cor and contemporary elegance. The layout of the main residence effortlessly flows between rooms and outdoor living space. The extensive seaside veranda spans the length of the greatroom and connects to a large deck sitting pool side that is adorned with an overhead trellis perfect for filtering sun or moonlight. It is all just a few steps to the 150 feet of quiet waterfront which is ideal for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, boating, turtle watching or just cooling off.
The gracious greatroom has a sitting area, gourmet kitchen with an eat-in bar and dining area that all open to the vibrant blues of the Caribbean Sea. The seaside wall of newly installed, impact-resistant sliding glass doors brings the sea views inside and opens to the swimming pool and surrounding deck for lounging or working on your tan.
This property is currently an active vacation rental. Attributes vacationers surely love are its postcard-perfect seaside location with easy water access, a stunning full Buck Island view, multiple homes which easily accommodates larger groups and the ample swimming pool (which was converted to saline in 2013).
The two-level, two-bedroom guest house is equally beautiful and has a full kitchen with a pass through window to the swimming pool and outdoor living space. Each guest house bedroom has a private seaside veranda great for alfresco dining, star gazing with a cocktail or simply relaxing while enjoying the view. The guest house has an outside half bath for pool-goers convenience.
The interior was professionally designed and all rooms have split air-conditioning units (New high-efficiency air-conditioning units were installed in four of the bedrooms in 2015.) along with newly installed hurricane-resistant sliding glass doors and windows. The cathedral ceilings offer height to the rooms and the fans capture the cool Caribbean breezes welcomed by the north easterly orientation.
Additional exterior features include a separate two-car garage, a 25-kilowatt back-up generator, an automated irrigation system to maintain the lush tropical gardens and a RO (reverse osmosis) system to ensure a constant supply of water. Each house also has its own cistern as well. Please see the Features List under documents for more information on all the amenities as well as details on recent upgrades and renovations.
