Special Features for Coastal Living
What makes this property unique are the upgrades recently completed by the owner/seller, who is a consulting Engineer, specializing in building envelope restoration. Both interior and exterior improvements were made to strengthen the structure against severe weather. Many of the design elements are not apparent to the casual observer. A few examples are:
- A new roof includes heavy 320 # architectural type shingles for longer wear. Corrosion-resistant Stainless-Steel nails were used to fasten the shingles. The roof sheathing was re-nailed and a reinforced polypropylene underlayment was installed.
- New front deck railings are of a PVC material, rather than less expensive wood. All fasteners are Stainless Steel.
- Hurricane shutters are powder coated. Internal bearings are nylon, not metal.
- The front deck door is made from synthetic materials.
- The carport ceiling was reinforced with over 2,000 Stainless screws.
- The two HVAC condensers have been professionally coated with a corrosion resistant material to extend their service life.
- The new beach walkover is specifically designed to resist high seas and the wind. All wood components are pressure treated. All metal components are Stainless-Steel.
Flagler Beach extends along a narrow strip of sand between the Atlantic Ocean and the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (ICW). The beach’s orange hue is attributed the abundance of crushed coquina shells in the sand. The Flagler Beach Interstate 95 interchange (#184) is the point where I95 is at its point nearest the Atlantic Ocean (only three miles). Flagler Beach is noted for its recognizable pier as well as its abundance of great restaurants and quaint shops.
