You’ll love to sip on your morning coffee out here, while you swing leisurely in the cool morning breeze. With lofty, vaulted ceilings, the expansive feel of this home offers more than enough room for large groups and families to spread out. Light pastels decorate every inch of this space, accentuated by the natural light streaming in through the windows. Throughout the home, you’ll enjoy a curated collection of original southern artwork from numerous, noted local artists. Comfortable sofas and chairs surround a large, flat screen television and fireplace, providing the perfect gathering place after a long day at the beach. The splendid and tropical décor extends through the open floor plan directly into the gourmet kitchen, where delicate, Juliska glass lanterns float over the elongated breakfast bar. The kitchen itself will be a delight to self-proclaimed foodies, equipped with state of the art amenities, such as a Ninja blender, a wine cooler, a huge double oven with a warming drawer, and so much more!
When it’s time to dig into whatever delicious meal you’ve prepared, this home offers two impeccable spaces for you to dine. The indoor dining table rests under a graceful chandelier, offering enough seating for ten. The outdoor dining space can be found on the shaded, screened-in porch, with a dark, elegant dining table that seats 12, and comfortable wicker chairs. After dinner, take advantage of the rest of the wonderful outdoor living space on this screened in porch, complete with a 65-inch television, fireplace, and comfortable sofas and rocking chairs where you can relax and enjoy a delicious cocktail or cool glass of wine.
With six gorgeously designed bedrooms, at this home, each guest will have a private and comfortable place to retreat to each night. The luxurious master is located on the main floor and offers a lavish king-sized bed. Four of the other bedrooms also offer equally comfortable king beds, and each of these five rooms offers private bathrooms, flat screen televisions, and ample closet space. Your kids will enjoy having the third floor to themselves, with a bunkroom that connects to an entertaining playroom, as well as its own bathroom. Additionally, all rooms come equipped with blackout shades, so you have the chance to sleep in on your vacation. Each bathroom is uniquely designed, with a stunning combination of pristine marble, designer tiles, and full-length mirrors.
With so much excitement and adventure to uncover, you’ll enjoy having some peaceful time to yourself every once in awhile. The cozy library offers a serene retreat, complete with a plush, chaise recliner nestled right next to the fireplace. The décor creates the perfect ambience if you need to get some work done, or just escape. If an afternoon nap is what you need, look no further than the magnificent upstairs sleeping porch. You can enjoy a movie on the large flat screen, or just sway gently on the two rocking queen-sized beds. Let the sounds of the pool fountains and the birds chirping lull you to sleep as you get some much needed rest.
While the indoor living spaces of this home are elegant and welcoming, the backyard is the crown jewel of the home. The spacious, screened in porch overlooks your private pool, surrounded by the lush greenery of the nature preserve. On the patio, there is a summer kitchen, complete with a grill that will delight the barbecue guru in the group! This area is perfect for entertaining large groups, day or night!

High Time in High Cotton
We (group of five) had the most fabulous week in this beautiful home in Santa Rosa Beach. The entire ambiance, decor, rooms and setting were so unique and creative and each day was more special than next. Breakfast on patio with the pine trees was awesome. Although we ate at some wonderful restaurants, we cooked home in the first class kitchen three evenings using the grill.for steaks. The entire community along emerald coast is worth seeing plus the state park near by, however, 146 Sandy Creek Drive is the best!!!”
