Black Skimmer is a very nicely appointed 3rd row home that is literally less than a minute and a half from the beautiful white sand of the beach and Atlantic Ocean. With five bedrooms and five baths it is a perfect vacation home for a large family or group.
Entering the home there are beautiful oak floors throughout the living spaces. A set of stairs lead up to the living room made very spacious feeling by the high vaulted ceilings. There is a large L-shaped couch and two upholstered chairs, one with a matching ottoman, and a large 50” flat screen TV and DVD player for entertainment. In the corner is a round oak top game table and four cushioned chairs. A set of doors lead off the living room to a nice deck with table, five chairs, and a rocker – a great place to enjoy beverages, snacks, and the sub-tropical setting.
The fully furnished kitchen has custom cabinets, lovely granite counters, a double sink preparation area, and a double oven. There is an island cooktop and overhead vent hood as well as a breakfast bar and three stools. Past the kitchen is a formal dining room with a beautiful stressed wood look table and eight chairs with upholstered seats. Sliding doors from the dining room lead to a screened porch where there is an additional outside dining table and eight chairs.
Back on the ground floor and around the stairway is a den with a leather couch, upholstered rocking chair, an oak top game table with four chairs, and a 32” flat screen TV with a WII player for entertainment. Just outside this den is a shaded patio with a swing, chairs, and a grill. The beach path is just a few steps away.
On the ground level are three bedrooms. To the right of the foyer is a king bedroom with a private bath that has a tub/shower combination. To the left of the foyer is a bedroom with two doubles and one twin. It also has a private bath with a tub/shower combination. Also to the left and to the back of the house is the third bedroom with two twin beds, a chair, 24” flat screen TV, and a private bath with a tub/shower combination. Sliding doors in this bedroom lead to a quite patio area with chairs.
The master bedroom is located on the 2nd level. It has a king bed, a 46” flat screen TV, and a private balcony overlooking the backyard. The private galley style master bath has beautiful granite counters, custom vanity, double sink basins and a separate slightly lowered make-up area between the two sinks. A privacy door leads to a large step-in shower with tiled walls and glass doors.
A spacious guest bedroom with two twin beds is also located on the 2nd level. This room has access to a hall bath with a tub/shower combination.
This is a classic vacation home so close to the beach you can hear the waves and smell the fresh salty air. There is also pool access at South Beach. A great time for any beach lover!
