10 HOTZ AVE | GRAYTON BEACH
4 Beds | 3 Baths | 2,260 SqFt | Built 1890
A harmonious fusion of historical significance and modern elements found in a new build, ''The Grayton House'' embodies everything quintessential about the charming beach community in which it resides. Originally built in 1895 by McCaskill Lumber Company, the historic home has seen many facelifts throughout its time on iconic Hotz Avenue until its full potential was realized by bespoke builder Daniel Brock in 2022. Modern-day comforts permeate the seven-bedroom, eight-and-a-half-bath home, starting with the security of a compound-style courtyard system, heated and cooled four-car-plus-golf-cart garage, and second-story private pool overlooking protected Grayton Beach State Park and the Gulf of Mexico.
Entertaining multi-generations was the inspiration behind the property's layout, with importance placed on spacious outdoor and indoor living areas, culinary spaces and plentiful covered decks. Preserving the history of "The Washaway" was at the core of all rehabilitation and restructuring work when crafting this modern-day home, with every reusable element from the original structure incorporated throughout the showcase. Floor joists from 130 years ago now adorn the cathedral vaulted ceilings in custom spaces throughout the home, while original rafters and siding were reimagined as expansive dining tables in the alfresco space. Luxurious elements adorn the property, adding doses of luxe furnishings, textiles and elements to each space of the home.
Fisher & Paykel appliances anchor the chef-ready and well-appointed kitchen, while custom hand-hewn wainscotting in the living room and custom-laid tile craft enchanting spaces to embrace the very best of life along the coast. A ground-level game room with turf flooring and a full bath is the source of endless smiles and convenience with fully locking entry doors for private accommodations only footsteps from the sugar sands of Grayton Beach. Effortlessly walkable to everything in downtown Grayton Beach such as Chiringo, the iconic Red Bar, Tribe Kelley Surf Post and the Western Lake boat launch, The Grayton House truly is the epitome of 30A living.
