Blount Springs Retreat, a delightful warm-weather home, has a standing-seam metal roof to protect the home from harmful sun and rain, wooden lap siding, and 6-inch corner boards - materials that create a traditional look as well as an informal feel.
The two-story house features a deep front porch topped by an almost identical deck - both are perfect for enjoying a seaside view. Doric columns lend strength and a sense of permanence to the entry.
A love for natural light marks the interior, where numerous windows line the most well-loved rooms: the family room, the dining room and the breakfast room. Multiple French doors open to a sun porch out back - a great place to escape the bugs - while an arrow-shaped island and snack bar enhances the kitchen's workspace.
Upstairs, the master suite enjoys a well-appointed private bath, and two secondary bedrooms share a bath. A handy laundry room rounds out this level.
