Are you an empty nester? I have so many friends that just became empty nesters and are finding ways to make their lives feel more exciting. A new home, that can accommodate their current needs, is surely a way to improve and change things around.
Take for example this small but well-designed Florida beach house. Located only few blocks from the ocean and with 12 foot ceilings on the entire first floor and incredible tall windows to soak in the sun, this home provides openness and forever views of the gulf from the tower.
The home also offers two master suites (one on the first floor, one up) and two additional ample bedrooms, each with an en-suite. If you love cooking and entertaining, you will love the main floor! The refreshed open floorplan with a small but very practical kitchen, opens to the dining area and adjoining living space. The kitchen is well equipped with island, honed granite countertops, stainless appliances, built-in fridge and separate ice-maker.
Take a good look and you will see why this empty nester home can easily be your dream home!

I am off now to do spend some time with the kids… They’re having their Christmas break and I love having them all day with me. It gets much louder in the house (especially with a puppy in the mix now), but it’s great! 🙂
Big hugs to you all and we’ll talk some more tomorrow!
