Available by the month or longer, this 1100 square-foot house in The Hill neighborhood of Apalachicola is newly renovated into an airy and comfortable home. The kitchen has butcher block counters and new custom-built cupboards. All appliances are new, and it is equipped with small appliances for those who love to cook. The hardwood floors were refinished in the kitchen, the guest bedroom and the great room as part of the house-wide renovation. The front half of the house includes the greatroom – an open design living room, dining room and kitchen – and one bedroom with a big closet and a full bath with shower. Throughout the house the furniture is a mix of old and new: new memory foam beds and two comfy couches, with vintage hardwood furniture finds and good lamps. The back half of the house features ‘Old Florida’ wood walls in the master bedroom, and in the study and the bathroom. The house has a new full-size washer and dryer with utility shelves, all behind vintage Apalachicola louvered doors. The two screen porches are furnished and the landscaped yard includes a portable outdoor grill.
Apalachicola is a beautiful and friendly small town, with live music nearly every day at several local venues downtown. The shops and art galleries are fun to visit again and again, looking for what you want as well as what you need. The town is surrounded by water and woods, making it a great destination for birdwatchers, fishermen, boaters, and nature lovers. There are plenty of restaurants, all locally owned and operated, where you can get a bowl of gumbo, oysters on ice, shrimp and grits, or gourmet nouveau dishes featuring local produce and seafood. And then there’s the region’s famed Tupelo honey!
Nearly all the stores in Apalachicola are independently owned as well, except for the Piggly Wiggly and CVS. There is one stoplight (one!) in town, and it’s the only stoplight in the whole county.
The huge estuary, where the Apalachicola River flows into the Apalachicola Bay is a UNESCO World Heritage Biosphere, an area so designated because of its importance as an ecosystem. You can learn all about that at the ANERR museum across the causeway in Eastpoint on the way to St. George’s Island, with its miles of sugar sand beaches on the Gulf of Mexico.
