Welcome home to this exquisitely REMODELED, OPEN CONCEPT, 2 bed/2 bath GULF FRONT residence with private balcony in Whispering Sands overlooking 800' of your own private beach and the gentle waves of the Gulf of Mexico!

Entertain family and friends in the spacious, open kitchen featuring granite countertops - which extend into the wonderful corner built-in desk, a large breakfast bar that seats 3, stainless appliances including a KitchenAid side by side refrigerator & built-in microwave, an oh so quiet Bosch DW and an Avallon wine refrigerator that holds 32 bottles, warming drawer, soft close drawers, deep pullout drawers for pots & pans, an appliance garage, recessed & pendant lighting, and extra cabinet storage. The living room features a wall of beautiful deep built-ins in which to display your collectibles picked up during your travels.

All interior doors are solid paneled wood. Beautifully textured interior walls and ceilings throughout. All overhead lights have dimmers. Enjoy endless sunsets over the Gulf on your completely private 25’ tiled balcony that stretches the entire length of the unit, accessible via sliders in the living room and master bedroom.

They also include tracks that will accommodate screens should you wish to add them. 2016 HVAC handler, 2020 condenser, 2021 water heater.
