Your Private Slice of Seaside Paradise Awaits. Just down semi-private Gulf Drive in the tranquil, iconic seaside village of Crystal Beach you’ll find the type of waterfront paradise seldom seen on the market here or anywhere. With wall-to-wall Gulf views, the best sunset this side of the Rockies, and a bevy of tasteful modern features, 545 Gulf Drive is a one-of-a-kind property. The home is perfect for locals looking for a serious lifestyle upgrade, a dual-family household who want to share seaside breakfasts and quality time on the beautiful deck and pool but enjoy privacy whenever needed, or for literally anyone who wants to enjoy the year-round sunshine and small-town pace of life that Crystal Beach offers. With St. Joseph’s Sound as your new backyard, you’ll no doubt spend your mornings kayaking or paddle-boarding across lazy grass flats while the tarpon and dolphins play among the sunkissed wavelets. When you cool off afterwards with a dip in the stylish, newly remodeled pool complete with hot tub and rock-lined waterfall, you'll feel like you're at a Hawaiian resort. Take your morning espresso on your airy private balcony while enjoying even more wall-to-wall Gulf views. Spend the evenings with your family and friends enjoying a bottle of wine or pitcher of margaritas as you watch the sun sink behind Honeymoon Island and the enigmatic green flash reflect across the tranquil waters of the sound. The open floor plan Great Room with gas fireplace(!), vaulted ceilings and breezy propeller fans is the ideal place to relax after dinner, have long conversations or play a board game with your family. Built-in surround sound and brand-new remote controlled blinds allow you to shut out the world and zone out whenever you need the space. For even more evening contemplation, even the most casual bibliophile will find worldly delight in the totally unique built-in loft library within the double-height master bedroom suite. Pick out a good book, then tuck into a warm bath in the master bath’s oversized garden tub. Right now, many people want to keep their families close at hand and this home is perfect for a dual family living situation. There is a second wing well-suited for adult children and their families, or for a home-office situation with plenty of room to spread out. The skylit family room boasts a second gas fireplace, a wet bar, and many more cool features that allow you to spread out and let your creativity fly. A four car garage with a full raised stage (the previous owner was a musician!) means you’ve got all the room in the world for your toys. Whether you’re a gearhead, an aspiring rock star, or just appreciate having the room to tinker, the possibilities are endless. What I Love About This House: The massive double-height master bedroom with lofted library, and a bonus family room that could be converted to a rec room or a second living room for a dual family household. The built-in fish tank is an incredible feature for any hobby aquarist who wants to take their passion to the next level and create a beautiful aquascape or coral reef to enjoy and contemplate each day. What I Love About The Area: A true seaside village, Crystal Beach is one of the very few approved golf cart communities and is not your average neighborhood. The area is also a solid investment, with the tiny 34681 zip code of Crystal Beach representing the highest property value gains in the Tampa Bay area between 2018 and 2019 (per Tampa Bay Times.)
