Waterfront Paradise: The Padre Island Luxury Home We Couldn’t Stop Dreaming Of

When it comes to neighbors, it’s the luck of the draw. Sometimes you find your best friend…other times you’re plagued with college kids and their bottle-smashing parties that go on until 2 am…or Janet who just won’t stop talking about her azaleas.

And then, sometimes, your neighbor is the blue-green water of the Packery Channel.

Waterfront property is, after all, the creme de la creme of coastal real estate, and though luxury homes by definition come with luxury price tags, in the Coastal Bend, those price tags are significantly more affordable in the Coastal Bend.

Such is the luck of 14334 Playa Del Rey, a $1.7 Million Corpus Christi real estate gem (that sold in a record 3 days) tucked away in a quiet corner of paradise also known as Padre Island.

Partially hidden by the shade of low-slung, whimsical tree branches, 14334 Playa Del Rey showcases its 2014 exterior renovation with grace. Clean geometric lines pay homage to its original mid-century design, and the privacy of a long driveway and garden-framed front entrance create an atmosphere of elegance, style, and zen.

Step inside 14334 Playa Del Rey and instantly make the transition from shady to sun-bathed with an airy open-concept custom kitchen and dining room that basks in windows and windows worth of South Texas sunshine. A coffee bar and top-of-the-line appliances (like the double oven and industrial fridge) make cooking and entertaining an effortless joy, and the butler’s pantry offers deluxe storage. An organizer’s dream!

From tile floors to beautifully restored wall paneling (don’t knock it until you see how drop-dead gorgeous it looks), historic architecture meets modern design in the myriad of common spaces. Hues of soft blue, grey, and white converge in a luxurious setting, and walls of windows throughout maximize views of the water.

In the master suite, hardwood floors, high ceilings, and custom built-ins frame a high-end retreat. Private patio doors open out to the garden, providing a seamless transition between the natural beauty of the island and the home.

The upscale design continues in the master bath, where basin sinks and coastal-blue tiles make a peaceful space to start and end the day. A generous walk-in closet, walk-in shower, and charming bathtub nook add a unique charm to the functionality of the bathroom.

All this coastal splendor isn’t reserved for the master suite. In fact, there’s plenty to go around all four bedrooms and baths. Exhibit A: an expansive guest bedroom leading out to the second-story deck and overlooking the glittering waterways. Exhibit B: a tiled walk-in shower and clawfoot tub in the guest bath.

As is the Coastal Bend way, 14334 Playa Del Rey’s interior is just the beginning. An enormous covered tile patio beckons the homeowner and their guests to uncork a bottle of wine and recline in one of the high-end outdoor chairs (or cozy up on the couch) and watch the blood orange sunset sink into a horizon dotted with statuesque exotic birds.

Oh, but there’s more! Just beyond the patio lies the real show-stopper. A gorgeous multi-level pool surrounded by 3,200 square feet of travertine promises endless hours of recreational swimming, relaxation, and entertainment. The swim-up bar and jacuzzi take this already dazzling pool’s game to the next level, and the full outdoor kitchen, outdoor showers, and evening lighting bring resort-style outdoor living to this home’s backyard.

From top to bottom, 14334 Playa Del Rey is the epitome of luxury island living. Every detail from the bathroom tiles to the interior decor (oh, did we mention it came fully furnished?) works perfectly together to make every day in this home feel like vacation.

Just minutes from miles of beach, the Padre Island National Seashore, Port Aransas, and downtown Corpus Christi, this home is a location dynamo.
