That Second Home
St. George Island Beauty
This gorgeous, beachfront home-away-from-home is an absolute must-see. Located on deep water in the gated St. George Island Plantation, it’s also close enough to home to let you get plenty of use out of it. The private boat slip and lift on the community dock near Bob Sikes Cut allows easy access to the Gulf. The property is just a short walk from the beach, and a community pool shared by only nine properties provides more fun in the water for those who prefer a pool to the ocean. Enjoy sunrises, sunsets and stargazing over the bay from the sunbathing deck, which faces the Gulf.
The house is impressively constructed for energy efficiency, with 12-inch-thick exterior walls made from 8-inch masonry block covered with 4-inch brick, concrete pilings and cross beams, and floors of 8-inch hollow-core concrete deck panels. The ground level features a heated/cooled game room, a screened area for fish cleaning and cooking with seating for eight people, and a garage. Six bedrooms offer more than enough sleeping space for a large family and 4,334 square feet promises plenty of living space, too.
