Mason Bean of Century21 Collins Realty, which carries the Tally-Ho listing, attributes its appeal to the carefully planned details of the home and its much-desired location. “The magic of St. George is part of why so many people want to have a home here,” he says. “It’s a great small town, and this particular house is special. It’s the perfect place to spend time with family and friends and just enjoy the slower pace.”
The attention to detail is noted throughout Tally-Ho. The home faces west, offering stunning sunset views. Cooking aficionados will appreciate the gourmet kitchen replete with double ovens, warming drawer, KitchenAid refrigerator, dishwasher, wine cooler and trash compactor. The home also boasts tile floors, a breakfast bar and plenty of cabinet space.
For entertaining purposes, Tally-Ho offers a recreation bar area, two built-in entertainment areas and oversized pool with hot tub. Each bedroom on the upper level has its own view of the island. Stepping outside, the immaculately landscaped yard leads to a wide lighted boardwalk. Where it ends, there is a spacious covered dock, which has a fish cleaning station, electricity and running water, built-in tables and seating, and a boatlift.
According to Bean, the home has never been rented and has been well maintained. Its proximity to Bob Sikes Cut, the channel that separates Little St. George Island from the main island, makes for an ideal fishing spot and offers yet another glimpse of the unspoiled scenic views for which the Forgotten Coast is so well known.
