This 1800-square-foot, flexible home can be used as a 3-bedroom home or as a 1-bedroom home with two adjacent rental units--each with separate entrances. Sitting on 12,362 square feet of planted gardens, Yellow Heron features one bedroom and one bath in the main house along with a bright airy office, living room, dining room, an outdoor dining patio, and a crow’s nest on the roof for star gazing or watching the ships off shore sail by.
One attached cottage has an efficiency kitchen, full bath, and patio. The second one has a bedroom, full kitchen, and bath. It also has a little private patio.
Yellow Heron was constructed originally in 1985 as a cottage on the grounds of the Romora Bay Club, then renovated in 2000, and again in 2007. Some of the upgrades include a 7KW generator, 3 mini split air conditioners, Hurricane impact doors and windows, storage space, large water storage tank, and Brazilian hardwood floors.This is the perfect place for someone looking for a quiet property, within walking distance to the beach, with rental income from both apartments or a generously sized one-family dwelling.
