53 Odessa Street
This iconic Seaside, Florida single story beach cottage with wraparound porches and operable shutters closely follows traditional vernacular cottages built generations ago in waterfront towns along the Panhandle. Featured in Seaside Style, Key Lime is ideally located midway between the beach and the West Pool, on the footpath to town center and has access to the private Odessa Street beach pavilion. The shaded side yard deck with generous amounts of cushioned seating, a grill, and outdoor string lighting maximizes your outdoor living experience. Step through double mahogany screen doors and into a deep front and side porch and the magic of this one level house unfolds. The tastefully decorated interior is arranged with a continuous living room that features a 55" Smart TV and dining space at the center of the house with soaring ceiling and cypress beams to give an open coastal cottage feel. Two sets of custom mahogany French doors in the living room swing out to the porches to savor the outdoors. V-groove wood walls and ceilings and maple wood floors are throughout the house. The wood burning fireplace and antique chandelier bring a bit of old world to the central dining area. A charming well-equipped kitchen is tucked just off the living room that features a separate ice maker. Two inviting queen bedrooms with flat screen TVs and en-suite bathrooms anchor the corners of the house while the master suite anchors another corner, featuring a king size bed, television, and a double vanity with walk-in shower. Each queen bedroom has direct access to screen porches through french doors while the master suite opens to both porches. The heart of the house is the deep screen porch that wraps around the front and side of the house accommodating a mahogany table with seating for 8. Plantation chairs and vintage rattan furniture complete this screened area for relaxing with a glass of wine or morning cup of coffee. An equally deep porch extending along the rear of the house affords the master bedroom and guest bedroom a quiet private outdoor retreat.
Additional amenities: gas grill, 2 adult bikes, sofa sleeper, private outdoor shower, washer/dryer, and a manicured yard with al-fresco dining completely enclosed by a white picket fence. Great for families with small children.
