The Little Seagrove Beach Bungalow & Heidiway have never been available for sale before today. This vintage beachside home has been owned and occupied by the same family for more than 60 years. Life at the beach does not get much better than this spectacularly updated mid-century modern beach home, with designer furnishings and tropically inspired interiors. Located in Old Seagrove Beach, the home was recently featured on Dwell.com. The home is ideally situated on the south side of County Highway 30A, in a first tier – one off the Gulf position, in the Seahighland Subdivision neighborhood, a non-HOA 1949 platted community. It is a few steps to the stunning white sand and emerald waters of old Seagrove Beach.
This beach-themed property is a desirable second home or vacation rental. Three bedrooms and two full bathrooms are divided between the main home and an attached master suite – known as the “Heidiway” – which has its own private entrance too. Heart of pine ceilings and cork floors add just the right tone to this unique beach bungalow, which boasts original kitchen cabinets with updated styling. The main level bathroom features the original 1957 Aqua tile. This home has undergone 2 major renovations, the first in 1967 with the design and construction of garage and master suite by local builder, Cube McGee Jr., whose father was the original developer of Seagrove Beach. The second renovation in 2017 added a new screen porch, new roof on newly built addition, new appliances, updated plumbing and two new A/Cs ensure everything functions smoothly. The master bathroom includes a two-person walk-in shower, kitchenette and 2 walk-in closets, one of which can serve as a lockout owners closet. The newly remodeled bungalow features custom interior design by award winning design firm, Tracery Interiors. The Southern Living and Coastal Living Magazine featured designers created this colorful, light filled retreat inspired by mid-century design, using period pieces and modern living inspiration. Play host to a fabulous tiki party, by mixing frozen drinks and relaxing around the fireplace on a cool night and admire the colorful vintage surfboards that enhance the casual atmosphere. The spacious 480 square foot screened porch features a Malm fireplace which provides an attractive year- round outdoor living space overlooking the solar-lit gardens. It’s a place to socialize, laugh, dance and dine with friends and family. Shady space on the outdoor terrace is perfect for a quiet read beneath the swaying palm trees and 60-year-old magnolia tree. Enclosed by bamboo and a living green fence, the 0.16-acre palm and tropical filled homesite has parking spaces for nine vehicles, including two in the garage. The privacy of this home creates a tropical oasis to disappear from the world and ideal for those with four-legged furry family members. When you fancy a walk on the sugar white sand and a cooling swim in the balmy Gulf of Mexico, you have a choice of two public beach access points to a dedicated public beach, which are located just steps away. For breakfast, Scenic Highway 30A is lined with cafés, restaurants and shops and nearby Point Washington State Forest and Deer Lake State Park offer endless outdoor pursuits. Don’t miss this opportunity to own one of the original Old Seagrove Beach classic bungalows.
