Welcome home to this 4 bedroom, 3 ½ bath home located close to downtown Ocean Springs, and overlooking beautiful Fort Bayou. This home is located on a very private street with over a ½ acre lot featuring several large oak and magnolia trees. So close to downtown, you are only a short walk, bike, or golf cart ride away from all that downtown Ocean Springs has to offer.
As you enter through the front door and covered porch, your eyes will be immediately drawn to the beautiful water views. The Great room is framed by a wall of architecturally designed custom windows which afford beautiful water, nature and captivating sunset views. The great room also features custom built in cabinetry and a natural gas fireplace with brick hearth. The Kitchen features granite countertops, custom cabinets, a gas cooktop in the center island as well as an eat-in kitchen area with plenty of natural light. Adjacent to the kitchen, there is also a formal dining room.
There are covered porches in front and back of the house, as well as an elevated deck off of the Great room which is great for grilling and enjoying a glass of wine by the fire pit while you enjoy the view.
The large master bedroom is located on the first level of the home. It features a large picture window overlooking the Bayou as well as its own private covered deck complete with South Seas Spa. The master bedroom also features its own split HVAC unit that allows you to separately control the temperature of your bedroom. The master bath has been recently remodeled and features custom cabinetry, heated tile floors, Jacuzzi bathtub, and a large tiled shower.
In addition to the Master bedroom, there is also one other bedroom on the first floor with its own private full bath that could be used as a guest bedroom or office. Located just down the hallway there is also a beautifully appointed half bath perfect for guests.
Upstairs features two large bedrooms that connect with Jack and Jill style vanities and a full bath. There is also a large sitting room that can be used as a play room or entertainment area that features a reading nook overlooking the private back yard and Bayou. There are two large HVAC controlled closets for storage and an attic.
The exterior of the home features vinyl siding which is the perfect maintenance free finish for life on the Bayou. There is also a new roof installed in December of 2022 which features GAF architectural shingles with a 50 year life. The home is elevated on solid concrete pilings and did not flood during Hurricane Katrina or any other hurricane. The home features covered parking for 4 or more vehicles as well as storage and work shop area. The large, private backyard is fully fenced and has a sprinkler system attached to a separate water meter. Located directly on Fort Bayou, this home offers an outstanding water view although it does not have direct water access. You can enjoy the views and feeling of being on the water without all the hassles of maintaining a boat dock. There are plenty of nearby boat launches for when you are ready to get out on the water. Come see this great home which has been lovingly maintained by its owners!
