Sweet Carillon is located in the Cottage District of Carillon Beach village and is the perfect vacation spot for family and friends and sleeps 12-14. This new in 2008, 2700 sq ft home offers three levels of spacious accommodations. The home is approximately 260 yards from the beach access and is within 150 yards from a park, playground, heated pool, two tennis courts and basket ball court.
Two additional pools, one heated and the other, gulf front are nearby. The first floor offers a bedroom with a king bed, a full bath, a kitchen and a living/dining room. The well equipped kitchen with granite countertops and stainless appliances opens to the living/dining area, a great feature for cooks who want to remain part of the beach festivities. Heart of pine floors on all levels and imported Italian Travertine stone in all baths lend elegance and cleanup convenience. The second floor offers a large master bedroom with a king poster bed, double closets, and a full bath with a jetted tub and separate shower. A second bedroom has a double bunk and a single bunk with a private full bath. The third floor has a bedroom with a king bed, a full bath and an entertaining room. The entertainment/media room has a big screen TV, a granite wet bar, under the counter refrigerator/freezer and a separate ice maker. French doors from the media room leads to a partially covered 19’ x 19’ porch that overlooks the charming Carillon Beach village.
Sweet Carillon is equipped with 5 TVs, 5 DVDs and wireless internet. Five spacious porches off the living room, media room and 3 of the 4 bedrooms overlook a state park on the west and the quaint village life of Carillon Beach on the east. Some porches offer gulf and lake views and are perfect for watching the magnificent sunsets, enjoying the soft chimes of the Carillon bells, or the night sounds from the wooded park.
Carillon Beach village, with its parks, plazas, promenades, dune walkovers, and pavilions, is an example of the “New Urbanism” revival land-planning movement along Florida’s panhandle coast. The community blends innovative coastal architecture and urban-planning traditions of the past century with current advanced technologies. The market area, with shops, restaurants, jazz club and internet coffee café, is the social hub of Carillon Beach.
A GOLF CART is provided for use in the village. The centerpiece of the 104-acre walking and biking community is the Carillon Bell Tower, a 35-bell carillon. The private, gated Carillon Beach is as much a park as it is a community. Sidewalks and a footpath system connect green spaces, Bellview Park with an oversize swimming pool, pool house and pavilions, and a town hall and auditorium.
