This exquisite luxury Gulf-front residence, spanning an exceptional 70 feet on the Gulf, is aptly named ''Graytful'' and the name says it all! Grayton Beach is a community of neighbors that the New York Times has called: ''A Gulf retreat for the upscale but unfussy!'' The beach residence exudes a classic coastal style and was inspired and designed by renowned architect Chris Stoyles of Archiscapes and built by reputable Allen Wright of Velvet Sun Builders. The interiors are matched to perfection by Darla Wright of Darla Wright Interiors. This 6 bedroom, 6 1/2 bath Gulf-front retreat boasts over 6,000 sq ft of heated and cooled living space and will be your estate forever. Look out every day from your kitchen, dining and living room windows to the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico This site is special indeed and boasts a large footprint and is one of only seven gulf front lots that own all the way down to the mean high tide line. Grayton Beach State Park borders the east and west sides of this small Gulf-front community that is as eclectic as it is bohemian.
An exceptional first impression greets you as you drive through the gated, arched entry with a stunning immediate view corridor directly under the home to the Gulf of Mexico. The arches that open up to the Gulf are supports for the second floor curvilinear, negative edge pool that spans the width of the house, complete with waterfall and catch basin. Entering the glass doors the first level flooring is stained concrete that wears well when coming back from the beach to the indoor shower and changing room/locker room. If you want to relax in the shade, there is a queen size swing bed hanging in the covered area as well as a 16 foot long custom-made dining table for outdoor dining and party events. The first floor "man cave" is complete with pool table and bar area with big screen TV and dual hurricane-rated garage doors opening up to the Gulf-front letting airflow completely through the first level. Ascend the stairs, or take the elevator, and receive a jaw-dropping welcome of unobstructed Gulf views. The large chef's kitchen with Wolf stovetop and subzero appliances lends an ideal design for entertaining and a huge Butler pantry provides a tidy home for the large storage shelving and separate ice maker. The large marble counter is home to many evening meals and fun parties. Everyone gets to enjoy a view, whether you dine at the dining room table or walk outside and have drinks and dinner overlooking the negative edge semi-circular pool with hot tub.
The living room is poised Gulf front and just off the dining area, complete with large screened TV and ample seating for everyone. The owners will leave their large Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree or remove it if you wish. The north wall is completely covered in book shelving and ready for your library(none of the books convey). One guest bedroom and bathroom as well as the guest powder bath are on this level Exiting the rear of the home through the breezeway, you are connected to the oversized carriage house. Complete with full kitchen, dining, den and sitting room, this carriage house could be a turn-key separate and private 2 bedroom, 2 bath home for parents or married kids with their children.
Mounting the stairs onto the third level, the Gulf front porch extends the length of the house with commanding "see forever" views. There are three bedrooms on this floor, each with ensuite baths.

The closet has "his" and "hers" sides with a convenient laundry shoot into the laundry room next door. Two additional guest rooms are positioned on the west side of the house, large enough for private offices or bedrooms for a large family.
