Description

LOCATION.. LOCATION.. LOCATION.. SPARKLING INGROUND POOL... AND MINUTES AWAY FROM NICEVILLE SCHOOLS (15 minutes from Destin). 

Welcome to Rocky Bayou Estates! This CUSTOM-BUILT.. 4 BR/2 BATH.. BRICK FORTRESS sits on Forest Road; aptly named because it borders miles of undeveloped forest!

The owners made several upgrades recently-- ROOF REPLACEMENT (2022), WHOLE HOUSE GENERATOR (2021), DUAL-ZONED HVAC/DUCTWORK REPLACEMENT (2018), WHOLE HOUSE DEHUMIDIFIER (2018), NEW EXTERIOR PAINT (2023).. and COOL DECKING AROUND POOL (so little feet do not suffer). 

Now let's talk interior! Step inside to HANDSCRAPED HICKORY WOOD FLOORING and DESIGNER PAINT IN NEUTRAL TONES. 

The living room is large, with VAULTED CEILING AND RUSTIC 

(Continued) WOOD BEAM AT ITS CENTER. There's also a gas fireplace with brick hearth, as well as french doors leading to the enclosed lanai/sunroom.

The kitchen recently received a facelift. The owners chose white for the cabinetry to compliment the blue-flecked butterfly granite. Foodies will love the ss appliance suite; particularly the GAS STOVE! There's also a gorgeous granite island and deluxe-sized pantry. BONUS: BREAKFAST AREA AND SEPARATE FORMAL DINING ROOM!

The master bedroom is tranquil and offers private access to the sunroom. There are two closets to choose from, with recently-installed barn doors. The master bath deserves a paragraph of its own!!!

This master bath is encased in porcelain and ceramic tile! There are custom-tiled walls with decorative mosaics.. a custom-tiled 2-person walk-in shower, with glass enclosure.. and two honed porcelain vanities.

Bedrooms 2 and 3 are quite spacious, with good-sized closets and neutral carpeting. Both are conveniently located near the guest bath.

Bedroom 4 features tiled flooring, and a walk-in closet that shares space with the washer/dryer. Bedroom 4 is conveniently located off the kitchen. Perfect teen retreat!

The backyard is my favorite part of this home. Not only is it large (.58 ACRE) and privacy-fenced, it plays host to a tropical caribbean blue inground pool.

The pool is surrounded by cool-decking.. which means little toes will not scorch in the Florida sun! #IYKYK

There's plenty of room for pool-side entertainment! Check out your paved patio space, with enough room for grilling and chilling. There's also multiple areas for gardening and outdoor play.

You can store your outdoor equipment in the lofted 10 x 20 storage shed.. or park the bigger toys beneath the BRAND NEW SUPER-SIZED CARPORT. This area is enclosed with more privacy fencing, and has a newly installed gravel driveway.

Worried about storm season? No need! This home is equipped with a whole house generac generator and exterior window hurricane protection. #StormReady

Of course, as previously mentioned, the best feature is location! Quick commute to the base... close proximity to Destin.. minutes away from Niceville schools (including the college).. and steps away from the golf course!
