Casa De Palmas is one of the most exquisite custom beach front homes in Destin. Ideally located in Crystal Beach, and set on 67' of beachfront, this could very well be your families perfect beach house! You first enter a courtyard shaded by palm trees, and are immediately greeted by an impressive grand entrance staircase with cast stone columns and balustrades. The custom Walnut door is surrounded by a beautiful stained glass window installation that was made for this home. As you enter you're met by ocean views, but as you look closer you'll notice the comfortable and inviting floor plan, with MANY recent upgrades. There are Pecky Cypress ceilings in the main living areas and bedrooms, and a mixture of hardwood and stone floors. The kitchen is a show piece with Vetrazzo Sea Glass countertops and hand blown glass chandeliers that perfectly capture the colors of the waters just outside the sliding glass doors. The kitchen also features a Cobalt Blue 8 burner Viking Range, 3 ovens, and a GE Monogram refrigerator ready to tackle any dinner party, and the "Coastal Grey" Kraftmade cabinets that tie everything together. There is also a large walk in pantry and locking wine room with a kegerator. Decorated with a "Beach Chic" flair, Casa de Palmas is a masterpiece you need to see! The living room features a gas fireplace, custom shelving, and on the wet bar where you'll notice the first of the many hand painted murals in the home. This fantastic floor plan with an emphasis on Gulf views has been the owners primary residence for the past 3 years, but was recently put on rental and immediately became one of the most popular gulf front rentals in Destin. It's easy to understand why. No detail was overlooked in the remodel of this home! On the second level, you'll find the ''Captain's Quarters'', a spacious master suite with a gulf front balcony that spans the width of the home, a gas fireplace, two walk-in closets and a large master bath with 2 water closets, separate walk-in shower and raised Jacuzzi tub overlooking the Gulf. Adjacent to the Captain's Quarters is a locking owners closet. The second floor also has the ''Flamingo'' guest suite, with its own private bath. On the third floor is the ''Manatee'' guest suite and the ''Pirate'' guest suite, another wet bar and a large balcony. All floors are accessed by an elevator. The first of the 2 guest houses is atop the double garage, and is complete with a living area, kitchen, washer and dryer, large bedroom, full bath, and balcony with gulf views.
