About the Property
GULF FRONT GEM ON CAPE SAN BLAS
Hurricane Michael tried to take us down but, after almost two long years, we’re back. With grateful hearts we welcome you to this grand old-Florida-style beach home. Our views were stunning before the hurricane, but now…WOW!
Shutters by the Sea, nestled on one of the widest beachfront lots on the Cape, is situated one-mile north of The Trading Post market and just south of Rish Park (a half-mile stretch of secluded beach). This home provides the perfect combination of convenience and privacy. Spacious, covered decks showcase the beauty of this magnificent expanse. The first thing we hear when guests arrive is “The views are spectacular!” Enjoy our famous sunsets from the upper or lower decks as dolphins swim just offshore. Adirondack furniture provides plenty of outdoor seating for the entire family. In the mornings, we think coffee and tea are best enjoyed watching the sunrise at one of the built-in corner tables. Though Hurricane Michael took most of our precious mahogany shutters, we are in the process of salvaging what we can for you to enjoy. But, if you spend all your time outside, you’ll miss the other half of what makes Shutters by the Sea so special.
Built in 1985, renovated in the summer of 2012 and again post-Michael, Shutters by the Sea is full of character unusual in newer homes. Relish Gulf views and doors to the decks from every room. This home features wide-open spaces in which to relax and gather with family and friends. Antique-lovers will appreciate unique pieces and original artwork from around the world interspersed among modern comforts. You may notice many details utilizing reclaimed wood. Centuries of history are represented here in understated elegance.
On the main level, the living, dining and kitchen areas are situated to take full advantage of the spectacular ocean views. With granite counters and columned bar, this kitchen is fully-stocked with cook and bakeware, utensils, spices and serving pieces to please the most finicky chefs. The white oak floors now shine again and our new 15-foot wooden ceilings soar. Subtle beauty surrounds you. The living and dining areas flow together and offer seating galore, a 42" smart HDTV, wireless Bose sound dock, games, movies, books, and the main attraction - jaw-dropping views of the sea.
The main level also has two bedrooms – one with two, snuggly, queen beds and the other with one pillow-topped king bed. Both also have HDTVs, adjacent full bathrooms and private, double doors to the deck.
Upstairs, the library offers the perfect setting to curl up with a book and watch rainy-day storms. Here you will find a queen foldout sofa, additional seating, Bose sound dock, imported washbasin and two sets of double doors to the upstairs deck.
The adjacent and luxurious master suite provides an “Ahhhh"-inducing memory foam-topped king bed, overstuffed chairs, HDTV and two sets of double doors to the upstairs deck. The upstairs bath features a double shower with floor-to-ceiling glass.
Shutters by the Sea provides cable television, WiFi and free local and long-distance calls.
All decks are gated so that little ones (both two and four-legged) will be safe. A sun/star-gazing deck, adjacent to the dune walk, provides unobstructed viewing of our renowned beaches and breathtaking celestial shows. To rinse away the powder-white sand, you will find a private foot-wash on the landing.
Enjoy plenty of protected parking as well as a covered seating area, and both gas and charcoal grills. A private, outdoor shower with hot and cold water provide the perfect place to cool-off, clean-off or warm-up after a day outside.
Old-world quality meets new-world luxury and convenience at Shutters by the Sea.
PLEASE NOTE: For the comfort of our guests, this home and premises are SMOKE-FREE and we ask that all dogs be treated for fleas before arrival.
2 twins are sleeper sofas in the downstairs King room. The sleeper sofa is in the upstairs living room space outside of the master bedroom.
