Enjoy breathtaking views from this stunning 4/4.5, two-story home in Perdido Gate. Its location couldn't be better - high on a bluff overlooking the convergence of four bodies of water, including Bayou St. John and Arnica Bay. With water views from everywhere, this unique home was completely redesigned and remodeled in 2006. It features double master suites (one upstairs, one downstairs); downstairs master bath with a jacuzzi tub, double vanity, and large separate shower; an amazing kitchen, with double wall ovens, built-in appliances, KraftMaid cabinets with built-in desk, granite countertops, and a bar with an undermount sink and wine cooler; and a great laundry room with built-in cabinets and utility sink. The spacious living/great room is open to the second floor, and a wall of windows and glass doors overlooks the water and bathes the house in light. Custom extras include a multi-plex audio system in the living room and bedrooms, built-in bookcases, a gas fireplace, a pool, and security cameras. This home is perfect for entertaining, with over 3,000 sq. ft. of outdoor living space overlooking the water and the private beach. It boasts one of the highest elevations in Orange Beach at 22 ft. above sea level, and is on deep water, with easy access to the Gulf and Intracoastal Waterway. Perdido Gate is a very desirable, wooded, waterfront neighborhood, located just minutes from a variety of cultural and recreational activities. Enjoy an afternoon at the new art museum, play tennis or pickleball at the new community center, or charter a deep-sea fishing trip from one of the many marinas. A short drive will take you to The Wharf, The Park at Owa, or Tanger Outlet Center for world-class shopping, dining, or for the more adventurous, The Rolling Thunder roller coaster. Amenities at Perdido Gate include a community pier and boat dock. This beautiful home of distinction must be seen to be fully appreciated.
