4 Bedroom, 4 Bath Beach Home W/ Wrap Around Porches; Ada Wheelchair Lift

Take a step back to a simpler time when family and friends gathered on the porch to catch the cool evening breeze and the children caught fireflies instead of 'the enemy'

on the hottest new game on an newest electronic device.

That is what the Seagrass Beach Cottage and Belle Fontaine Pointe beach offers you. Located on Mississippi's only natural beach, with its white sands, calm water, abundant wildlife and breathtaking sunsets, this small peninsula in as inviting as it is beautiful.

This 4 bedroom, 4 bath cottage style home has the classic details of a house built 100 years ago--lap siding, exposed rafter tails and long wide porches. Yet with all the amenities you would expect in a newly built residence: Direct TV, WIFI internet, 2 flat screen TVs, central heat and air, 2 gas tankless hot water heaters, for continuous hot water, washer and dryer to name a few.

Concrete drives encircle a large fountain with a fountainhead of 3 dancing Sandhill Cranes. Wrap around porches provide plenty of outdoor entertaining space with its highlight being the almost 80' long and 12' wide covered back porch overlooking the beach. With it many seating choices, including rocking chairs, settees, patio dining table and 6 chairs and a bar with 4 stools at the bar that surrounds a fully equipped outdoor kitchen. It has an undercounter refrigerator, bar sink, gas cooktop and barbeque grill. So boil your shrimp, grill your steaks, cook your veggies and grab a cold beverage, then sit back and enjoy the food, drink, company and views!

The Seagrass Beach Cottage has a split floor plan, with the living dining room combination in the center and the bedrooms on either side of the house. The living room features a faux fireplace with an electric log and an antique pine mantle, with soaring ceilings, horizontal slat wood walls, and natural finished heart pine flooring. On the north side of the living room is the front entrance graced with a pair of New Orleans style old French doors. At the South end of the room is the dining area with a reclaimed beaded board ceiling, a farm style dining table with 10 ladder back chairs and a spectacular view of the beach and water through the 2 pairs of glass French doors, which open onto the cover back porch.

Above the dining area is a lounge area reached by a wrought iron spiral staircase. This loft is called the Pelican Perch and has a queen size sleeper sofa and it opens onto a sunbathing deck through 2 pairs of glass French doors. What awaits you is 2 chaise lounge chairs and a panoramic view the Gulf, Horn Island and to the west, Biloxi and the Casinos! And the most gorgeous sunsets every night which rival the famed Key West sunsets.

On its west side the dining room opens up to the kitchen. With it light grey chalk painted cabinets, maple butcher block countertops, 1950s era single drain board sink with open shelving above made of reclaimed beaded board siding and boasting a stemware rack, faded grey striped ceramic floor tile and authentic Hoosier Cabinet its reminds one of the good old days and grandma baking. But the stainless Frigidaire Gallery line of appliances, a dishwasher, side by side refrigerator and 5 burner gas range with oven, this is definitely not Grandma's kitchen.

On the west side of the home are two more bedrooms and baths. The one on the South or beach side, has a queen and single bed, glass doors with a beach view opening onto the back porch, and a door into the guest bath. This bathroom, as do all of the others, has a custom shower surround, tile flooring and vanities with granite tops. It is a tub shower combination, as it the 4th bathroom.

And the last bedroom, called the Kid's room has 3 twin beds and a light hearted theme with original artwork on the wall clad walls. It has a private bathroom with multi colored ceramic tile floor and a custom glass tile shower surround and yellow walls creating a fun and lighthearted atmosphere.

And speaking of the young ones, the property has an out door play area with a deck and tree house combination. It features a slide, swings and a climbing wall, outdoor fun at its best.

The Seagrass Beach Cottage, Belle Fontaine Pointe and the Mississippi Gulf Coast has much to offer the vacationer; there is truly something for everyone.

The Seagrass Beach Cottage is a wonderful location for a small beach wedding or family reunion. Please inquiry about our Event rates.
