Moored behind acres of never-to-be-developed state forest awaits a home showcasing contemporary living in an elegant bay-front gated community called The Estuary. The neighborhood is approximately 10.5 feet above sea level, with lush indigenous vegetation exuding nature's inspiration throughout this intimate community of only 39 homesites. Minutes away from the blue-green waters and white sandy beaches of 30-A and Grayton Beach, The Estuary is a treasured haven. 176 Ansley Forest Drive is an exquisite one-level, three-bedroom/two-bath residence on a quiet cul de sac across the street from the bay and community dock, where enjoying beautiful sunsets with expansive bay views will become a daily ritual. This quaint masonry style (ICF constructed) contemporary gem timelessly reflects the perfect harmony between clean lines, modern simplicity, and a daily connection with nature. The sublime screened-in porch offers enhanced privacy given the conservation easement and is usable year-round. The adjacent exterior deck is delightful for outdoor dining and relaxing by the fire pit in the cooler winter months. There is a detached wood-paneled two-car garage with covered steps to the main house. The home's interior boasts Brazilian walnut flooring throughout, a vaulted great room ceiling, a wood-burning fireplace, and a modern kitchen with a gas range, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and custom cabinetry. The open floor plan creates an effortless flow that beautifully maximizes the use of space, while French doors leading to the exterior porch infuse the interior with the serenity of indoor/outdoor living. The master suite is cradled against an exuberant woodland backdrop making it a cozy retreat. The ensuite features his and her vanities, a custom-built walk-in closet, and a glass-front zero-entry walk-in shower. Masterfully crafted 8-foot doors grace the adjacent bedrooms and hallway. Take this rare opportunity to call this property home.
