Heron Hideaway - Plentiful Sound Views from Beautiful and Spacious 5 BR Home with Elevator

Nestled up to a serpentine canal alongside the Intracoastal Waterway lies a haven for those looking to get away and recharge. Heron Hideaway is an amazing 5 bedroom, 3 full and 3 half bath home tucked back from the street and offers panoramic views of the Sound. Sunsets over the Sound are simply stunning from the top floor covered porch. And don't be surprised when a great heron or egret soars into your backyard. This home has it all, and comfort and style reign supreme.

This large home features the popular reverse floor plan to have the common living areas on the top floor in order to maximize the views. On the sound side you can hang out on the covered porch and enjoy a meal or enjoy an evening cocktail while taking in a sunset. On the opposite side of the home, step out on the sun deck for a view of the ocean and a sunrise. Inside is the great room where a nice comfortable wrap-around sofa awaits. Catch a movie on the enormous flat screen Smart TV with cable app and Blu-ray DVD player or simply gather to chat and catch up. The beautiful gourmet kitchen and dining area are just steps away, and everyone will want to help prepare a meal together. Granite countertops, stainless appliances, all of the tools you need, and a large island with seating for four are just what you need to prepare fresh seafood meals.

Pick your favorite spot on either of the two sound side covered porches or the ocean view sundeck, relax with morning coffee as the sun comes up or dine outside to enjoy the fresh breezes. On the ground level of the home is a convenient elevator which makes loading and unloading a breeze, a carport, a wet weather entry, and an enclosed outdoor shower with hot and cold water. This is truly a remarkable experience after a long day in the sun, surf and sand! Your beach access is conveniently located across Island Drive. You can come and go as you please!

Sweet Dreams:

Completing the top floor is an amazing master suite with a queen bed, private bathroom with dual shower heads, and access to the covered porch. Now this is a bedroom for you to relax and unwind! Take the elevator or the stairs downstairs to the first floor to find the other four bedrooms. On the north side of the home there is a great queen bedroom on the sound side. This bright and cozy bedroom has access to a covered porch with sound views and a semi-private Jack and Jill style bathroom. The other side of the bathroom leads to the other bedroom on the north side of the home. This stylish bedroom features a queen bed and is located on the street side of the home. On the south side are the perfect rooms for the kids in your family. On the sound side is a great pirate-themed room with two twin beds and access to the covered porch. Your kids won't forget this room! On the street side of the home is a twin/double bunk bed and a bunk bed (no closet in this bedroom). The kids will love to congregate in here and watch their favorite shows on the flat screen TV. These bedrooms also connect with a Jack and Jill style bathroom each with their own half bathroom. Finally, in the hallway on the sound side, curl up on the chaise lounge to continue your summer beach read. This tranquil spot will be in high-demand during your stay!
