Natchez, Oak Creek Annie’s & High Rustler-SOLD!!! - 147 Grayton Street
The corner lot was selected by architects, Robert and Carol Orr, from New Haven, CT to be the location of their second home. Behind six regal palms, a beautiful arcade of large classical columns and two levels of covered porch extend the entire length of the property, connecting main cottage and guest cottage. The house celebrates the aphorism, “On the white sandy beaches of Gulf Coast Florida, the bedroom is where you sleep, the outdoors is where you live.” Indeed, designed-to-be-used outdoor living space brings square footage of the house to over 6,900 SF. Tons of French doors seamlessly connect outdoor living with indoor functions, all floors. For that reason, this Seaside compound is a favorite for hosting large family reunions, wedding parties or vacations with close friends, each having their own private bedroom and bath. Many visitors comment how they adore the collegiality of the house and that it was the highlight of their Seaside visit. The guest cottage is three floors with built in flexibility to use/rent the top floor separately from the quarters below. In fact, flexibility is designed into the entire compound so it feels equally comfortable with extended families or with small intimate gatherings. Tucked in between the cottages nestles the roofless Black Cypress Dining Hall, so named for the custom built table and benches made of black river bottom cypress, seats 18. The owner, a landscape architect, selected vegetation not only to enhance the architecture of the cottages, but conducive to the unique plant zone of the gulf coast. A mix of antiques and slip-covered furnishings throughout the cottages create southern comfort with modern style. Interiors are “pickled” a warm green and highlights to give character to the natural finish of the wood walls. The guest cottage towers almost 50’ to serve as Seaside’s west end landmark while offering breath-taking gulf views. Amenities include natural gas heating, gas cook top, marble counter tops, capacious owner’s storage, two outdoor showers, ample parking along two perimeters and close by west side family pool, which is heated in the cooler months. Stroll a brief 5 minutes to Seaside’s quaint downtown of unique shops and restaurants. The Natchez compound has been featured in several publications- Traditional Home, Home, Fine Home building, Better Homes and Gardens and Family Home Idea Book.
