Sawyer House -Contract Pending!!!


Step Back in Time to a Sea­side Clas­sic — the Sawyer House. Cap­tur­ing the spir­it of the care­free ear­ly Sea­side days, this clas­sic Flori­da cot­tage offers a wel­com­ing and friend­ly pres­ence as it stands com­fort­ably nes­tled amid the native land­scape of live oaks and sand pines. This charm­ing two-bed­room cot­tage with sep­a­rate guest quar­ters is locat­ed steps from the children’s play­ground, ten­nis courts, and adult swim­ming pool and is just a short walk to the Savan­nah Pavil­ion and the beau­ti­ful beach. The large prop­er­ty, mea­sur­ing 70 by 75 feet, backs up to the wood­ed buffer between res­i­dences and the ten­nis courts and cro­quet lawn and offers incred­i­ble flex­i­bil­i­ty for expan­sion. The sep­a­rate guest quar­ters, affec­tion­ate­ly known as The Tow­er, is com­prised of three sto­ries with bed­room, bath, and effi­cien­cy kitchen with wash­er and dry­er. The stor­age room on the first floor eas­i­ly becomes an office and con­nects to a large decked court­yard. Like many of the best ear­ly Sea­side homes, the rich tra­di­tions of ver­nac­u­lar archi­tec­ture found in his­toric small towns and old­er beach com­mu­ni­ties inspired the orig­i­nal design, com­plet­ed in 1988. Sim­i­lar to clas­sic beach hous­es that have stood along Florida’s shore­line for gen­er­a­tions, this home takes advan­tage of shade and Gulf breezes with deep porch­es and breeze­ways to encour­age cama­raderie. The house is an authen­tic clas­sic — sim­ple, stur­dy, and serene — more than ever a most fit­ting and appro­pri­ate response for 30A’s unique coastal envi­ron­ment and its relaxed lifestyle. Sim­ple geom­e­try, authen­tic mate­ri­als, car­pen­ter details give this house its dis­tinc­tive char­ac­ter both inside and out. Exte­ri­or cladding is cedar and there’s a tra­di­tion­al met­al roof. Famil­iar forms trans­late to a pair of deep porch­es crowned with steeply pitched gabled roofs fac­ing the street. A play­ful undu­lat­ing pick­et fence frames the front, while a wood­en path­way leads to the entry French doors that estab­lish an invit­ing first impres­sion. A thought­ful and effi­cient arrange­ment of inte­ri­or spaces cap­tures the best aspects of an open floor plan designed for casu­al beach liv­ing. The spa­cious com­mu­nal liv­ing area is filled with a mul­ti­tude of win­dows and open, peaked ceil­ings, flood­ing the space with nat­ur­al light. Warm pine floors and crisp white tongue and groove wood pan­el­ing instill charm and char­ac­ter. The bed­room and liv­ing room share a fire­place sur­round­ed by Flori­da lime­stone. An open loft over­looks both the liv­ing room, din­ing and kitchen areas and pro­vides addi­tion­al sleep­ing space. If you’ve always want­ed to call Sea­side home, this clas­sic cot­tage with its large prop­er­ty is the per­fect opportunity.
