When the owners of this spectacular Gulf front retreat named if after one of Jimmy Buffett's songs, "Semi True Story," they were locking on to one of the best lines of the song, as this house runs all the way to the sea. From its recent and complete renovation to its Gulf front pool and spa, Semi True Story is a true Gulf front masterpiece. It boasts over $570,000 in gross revenue YTD for 2021 and over $600,000 for 2022. It features a new roof, stucco cladding, new windows & doors, new HVAC, flooring, kitchen and baths and a one of a kind custom built bunkroom suite that accommodates more than 12 guests. Sitting directly on the Gulf in the gated community of Dunes of Destin, Semi True Story affords breathtaking views of the water... with a private Gulf front heated pool & spa and private beach access.
The main floor features the living area of the home, complete with an elevator for easy access to all floors; and the sliding glass doors in the living room lead out to a balcony overlooking the Gulf, with seamless glass railings that offer an unobstructed view of the Gulf and spiral staircase that leads down to the pool deck.
Beautiful white walls, updated finishes, LVP floors, exposed beams, and pecky cypress ceilings create a clean and modern atmosphere; and the open floorplan of the main floor is perfect for the family to be together while eating meals or relaxing in the living room. The extravagant kitchen features floating shelves; brand new, top-of-the-line commercial appliances including two dishwashers; and a spacious pantry. Much like the rest of the house, the dining area is perfectly situated for allowing beautiful views while gathering around the large dining table.
Offering a perfect sanctuary space, the third floor features a common area with a bar complete with floating shelves, a mini-fridge, and a coffee and wine area with a bar table. Two gulf-front bedrooms, each with a private bath and a walk-in closet, are located on this floor. The master suite boasts beautiful Gulf views with private access to the balcony. The private bathroom has been completely upgraded with a large standalone shower, free-standing tub, and a dual-sink vanity. Step onto the balcony where you can see the water through the seamless glass railings while you enjoy a hot cup of coffee in the morning or enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. Next door, the secondary master features a private bathroom with a walk-in shower and private access to the Gulf-front balcony.
The entire lower floor of the home consists of an enormous bunk room, uniquely configured with three built-in queen-over-queen-over-queen bunk beds, each with individual mounted flat-screen TVs. Two sofas offer seating around a large flat screen TV; and the space also features two bathrooms, each with two standalone custom showers. Just off of the bunk area is a queen bedroom and a laundry room. Step onto the pool deck and splash into some fun in this stunning private pool with a built-in hot tub, or use the private beach access for a day out on the sand!
The fourth floor is home to four more King suites, perfect for accommodating guests. Each with their own bathrooms, two of the suites are Gulf front while the other two afford views of the Gulf. Semi True Story has been freshly renovated from top to bottom to meet the needs of a variety of buyers, with an entertainer's lifestyle in mind.
