26 Okeechobee Circle, Santa Rosa Beach – Coastal Cottage / Forest Lakes on 30A
2692 Square Feet / 1-Car Garage + / Carriage House / 4 Bedrooms / 4.5 Baths
This is a version of the very popular Topsail model designed by well-known local architect, Chris Stoyles, at Archiscapes. The very first time we met Chris, we told him we wanted to build a new home in the Forest Lakes neighbhorhood on 30A and we wanted to see his most popular floor plan…and he showed us this one! This 2-story coastal cottage has tremendous curb appeal and people love it the minute they drive up to it. It has a warm and friendly front porch and once inside the downstairs has an open floorplan with 10′ ceilings and lots of windows with transoms. The kitchen features custom shaker-style cabinets, upgraded stainless appliances, gas range, and quartz countertops. We used beautiful light fixtures from Pottery Barn and got many compliments on these! People here at the beach love Pottery Barn!
One of the most striking features of this home is the stairwell! It is open to the 2nd story and has windows all around the top letting in lots of light! Once upstairs, you’ll find two more bedrooms, including the Maser Suite. The Master has a wrap-around balcony and a flex space that could be an office space or a place for your coffee bar. The laundry room is upstairs as well where it’s much more convenient. This new home was purchased by a sweet family from St Louis who were looking for a second home here at the beach. We helped them add a carriage house over the existing 1-car garage and it gave their teenagers a place to hang out when they are here at the beach.
