House of the Week Redux: Beverly Beach Intracoastal Estate Cottage Listing Revisited
Practical, not opulent. Solidly-built, not delicate. Functional, not whimsical. This 3-story “Old Florida Style” estate cottage has 1st floor guest quarters with separate entrance and kitchen.
PALM COAST, FL – February 19, 2015 – Amazing views and 240 feet on the ICW mark this Beverly Beach home. Practical, not opulent. Solidly-built, not delicate. Functional, not whimsical. This 3-story "Old Florida Style" estate cottage has 1st floor guest quarters with a separate entrance and kitchen.
The three contiguous lots total 1.3 acres with two lots (one Intracoastal) separately platted, each with water and sewer already tied in. The new owner will have the option of selling one or both of the lots or continue to use the total acreage as an estate.
Twenty-three Westmayer Place is surrounded with tiled balconies and full of practical and efficient features you can really use. Although this home has an open and airy look and feel, it is built with energy conservation in mind. All windows and doors are Thermo pane and the home is well insulated. Average monthly utility bills are astonishingly low; $160 electric and $25 gas.
VIEW FROM ABOVE LOOKING SOUTHEAST
Built in 2007, this week’s GoToby.com featured House of the Week is a “one of a kind.” It’s packed with features you can use. When the square footage of a home is stated by real estate professionals, they typically refer to the square footage “under air” (heated and cooled). That doesn’t work with this house. It has 5,240 square feet of living area “under air,” plus a 1,200 square foot garage, also “under air.”
MANLY – NOT YOUR EVERYDAY GARAGE
The garage has its own HVAC unit, an epoxy floor and is tied into the home’s central vacuum system. The garage is double depth to accommodate four vehicles. It’s equipped with a two-ton A-frame lift, wall-mounted storage cabinets, a work bench, bench grinder and vise. The stained wood garage doors are insulated.

Uniquely, the approximately 240 feet of Intracoastal Waterway frontage has both State and Federal permits for a 125 foot large yacht basin with no SSL lease fees or easement requirements, providing direct access to the ICW’s 12 foot deep channel.
CONCEPT DRAWING OF THE PERMITTED YACHT BASIN
Beverly Beach is located on scenic A1A only a few miles north of iconic Flagler Beach with its famous pier, restaurants and shops. Further south is Daytona Beach. Historic St. Augustine and Marineland are short drives north. Nearby Interstate 95 provides easy access to Orlando and Jacksonville.
The area, sometimes referred to as “the quiet side of Florida, features miles of beaches with abundant public access, miles of hiking trails, championship golf courses and top-rated schools. Shop and dine in nearby (just over the bridge) Palm Coast, recently recognized as one of “America’s 50 Best Cities to Live.” Palm Coast’s population recently topped 80,000.
