Welcome to our home!
When you arrive at Parkside at Olivia Beach, you may first notice the park, Olivia’s Green, across the street. You will want to linger in the custom-painted Adirondack chairs on the broad front porch to take in the sand volleyball court, children scrambling around the play structure, woodland area, and fire pit. You will love the relaxed and charming coastal style of the neighborhood and this charming home.
Step inside to a spacious main floor living area reminiscent of British colonial island life, with its hardwood floors, ceiling fan, crown molding and dark wood furnishings. The living room also features a gas fireplace, flat-screen TV, and queen sleep sofa.
Off the living room, you will find bookshelves filled with beach collectibles and a small library for your reading pleasure. A small round table with chairs is the perfect breakfast spot, game table or laptop computer desk with broadband internet access always available. French doors open to the spacious wraparound deck where you can relax in the hot tub, take a warm shower to remove saltwater and sand, or dine outside after preparing a meal on the gas BBQ grill.
Back inside, the dining table beckons family and friends to enjoy a leisurely meal. With seating for six at the table, three on bar stools at the counter, and more at the small round library table, there is plenty of room for everyone.
Steps away from the dining room is the open, gourmet kitchen featuring granite counter-tops and stainless steel appliances. The owners love to entertain, so the kitchen is fully equipped with newer appliances, pots, pans, serving dishes, and kitchen gadgets, and cookbooks for every occasion.
Through another door off the kitchen is the mudroom and half bath. There you can do laundry or grab a beach towel in a vintage atmosphere complete with 1950’s sand pail shovels. Exit the back door to the deck, back garden, and 2 car garage.
Upstairs you’ll find 2 bedrooms, the guest bathroom and master suite. Take a left at the top of the stairs and you’ll find yourself in the ‘Swim’ bedroom, named for the diving girl pillow on the bed. This bedroom, with its palette of Caribbean colors, features a queen size bed and a large closet.
Next up is the ‘Surf’ bedroom, a nod to the world-class surfing just off shore. With twin beds dressed in orange, brown and aqua, kids of all ages will want to spend the night here. The surfboard lamp, basket of books under the nightstand, movie watching television, and custom “surf” art invite you to linger. Special window treatments of fishing net and seashells complete this room’s decor.
To the right of the stairs is the master suite, fondly named Key West. This room is decorated in the calming beach colors of white capped waves, pastel shells, sand and black pebbles. The queen bed is dressed in luxury linens and above the headboard is a hand-painted plank that reads, “the stars came out over the summer sea,” an experience you can have at the beach just a short walk from the house. A door leads you onto the upper deck balcony off the master suite overlooking the park, the perfect place to curl up with a book or stargaze after dark. Back inside, you’ll find the master bath with dual sinks and tub/shower. A walk-in closet completes the suite, ideal for those longer stays.
The fourth bedroom is a spacious carriage house located above the garage, furnished with a queen bed and a bathroom of your very own, as well as a sleeper sofa and over-stuffed arm chair. The master suite and carriage house suite both have cable television.
Surely staying longer will be on your mind after a day at the beach exploring tide pools at low tide. You will want time to blow your own glass float, fly a kite, do some wine tasting, play a round of golf, or go on a whale watching excursion. Or enjoy this quiet stretch of the Nelscott beach, with a private access through the Olivia Beach neighborhood, to find agates, storm watch, build sandcastles, or take a relaxing walk. There is something to make everyone’s Parkside vacation just perfect.
