Beautiful Oceanfront Home with a Private Hot Tub and Expansive Decks

This oceanfront treasure is the perfect getaway for anyone wanting to enjoy a more rural side of the Texas Gulf Coast and have a luxurious home to relax in.

This stilted, three-story home is bright and spacious, with the living spaces on the second and third floors (which are accessed by stairs). There are nautical accents throughout the home, and its open layout makes it great for a larger group of guests. The fully equipped kitchen features a large island with seating, along with upscale accents, stainless steel appliances, and gorgeous granite countertops. The main living area is open, expansive, and full of tasteful furnishings.

Two primary bedrooms are located on the third floor, as is the laundry room. One bedroom features an en suite bathroom; the other bathroom has a door to the second bedroom and another access point from the main living area. Step out onto the partially covered, third-story deck and enjoy sweeping ocean views. There are deck chairs, loungers, and rocking chairs to help you enjoy the salty sea air.

The second story features a mezzanine deck with a hot tub, porch swings, and an open bar area with a refrigerator and a chest freezer. The bunk room, with its large full bathroom, and the fourth bedroom are accessed from this deck. The ground level has an open seating and counter area, along with bench seating and a firepit right along the beach. This home is a lovely place to bring friends or family together.
