About 827 E Mack Bayou Dr
The true epitome of bayfront living awaits you in this stunning New Orleans inspired home off of Mack Bayou. Surrounded by the serenity of the live oak canopy, the backyard sets the stage for westward facing sunsets overlooking the peaceful waters. Ideal for boaters and fisherman alike, Mack Bayou has some of the deepest water available in South Walton, allowing for the mooring of larger boats than most of the surrounding bayous. The dock includes an approx. 20' covered slip with lift, fish cleaning station, multiple jet ski lifts, and pilings in place on the side slip for a larger vessel. While entering the property, you are greeted with a 3 car garage that includes a large finished carriage/apartment above with spacious open floorplan kitchen/living room, plus a large Bedroom andbath. Moving to the main dwelling you are welcomed with a columned wrap-around porch, reminiscent of old southern living. Designed to impress, the entry door is a reclaimed wooden door from France adding to the character of the home. The main level invites you in with high ceilings, reclaimed wood flooring and a spacious floor plan. The main level contains a waterfront master suite, complete with a living area/office area plus a fireplace. Speaking of fireplaces, there are 4 in this gorgeous home! In addition to the master suite, you will also enjoy an additional guest bedroom, formal living room facing the water, spacious kitchen, den (can be formal dining), powder room, laundry area, and office nook complete with a doggie door and dog washing station. The main level is accented by solid wood doors and the reclaimed wood floors. Making your way upstairs can be via the 2 stop elevator, or the beautiful stairs. Heart of pine flooring greets you upstairs and compliments the 2 bedrooms, connecting bath, and exterior covered deck. (note: one of the bedrooms is currently being utilized as a study and the closet for this room is a huge walk-in just outside the door entry). Enjoy the easy maintenance of owning an all brick home. The back porch is truly a place you will never want to leave. The screened porch for shelter from the sun, rain, and year-round enjoyment all while maintaining the ambiance of lush landscaping overlooking the water. You will also find an outdoor shower and gardening shed in the back yard. Mack Bayou feeds in to Hogtown Bayou which opens to the Choctawhatchee Bay. It provides a year round fishery for redfish, trout, and other species. From Baytown to Crab Island, other boating activities are within short to reasonable distance.
