1200 Square Foot Destin Lake Cottage

Step inside lovely 1200 Square Foot Destin Lake Cottage. Don’t let the modest size fool you.. this small house is packed with design ideas.

[adrotate banner=”30″]Everyone loves the architecture and the charm of Fairways. It is a quiet area of homes on the lake with docks, established landscaping and convenient to all the amenities in Sandestin.

This cottage has a view of the bay and is on the lake too. It has a screened-in porch to relax and enjoy or go hang out in the sun on the dock and fish. They catch big bass in this lake. The floors have been updated with 16″ tile on the diagonal and the kitchen is light and bright. Courtesy of destinpropertyforsale.com

Front view

“The home where your heart is”. The lamp post situated at the front of the house just before the steps gives out the “this is your home” vibe. The landscaping is really impressive as well.

Living Area 2

Bright red sofas. White walls and red-colored sofas definitely complement each other. One more thing I noticed here is the windows built all around which gives the living room a more welcoming vibe. Your visitor friends will love it there.

Living Area

This is the other angle of the living room – overlooking the porch. The floors have somewhat dated 16” diagonal tiles. Multi-colored carpet right under the center table adds nice touch. The glass doors going to the porch definitely a plus.

Dining Area

I love that the dining area has a view of the lake side. I also like the glass table here with the gray-colored chairs going along with it. The windows here are rather huge, right? And they are all over which is a good thing, I feel.

Bedroom 2

There are two bedrooms in this house. This is one of them. Two single beds really makes this carpeted room spacey enough for kids or visitors.


No comment. 🙂


Take a look at this photo of the screened-in porch! You’ll be in awe on this one. With the view of the lake side and the bay area as well, you will surely want to hang-out in this part of the house more often. This looks breezy and decorated enough to make it your favorite part of the house especially during summer. You can also choose to dine here, if that makes it more appetizing in the sense. There’s a dock right outside the porch and you can fish there.

View From Lake

This is the lake-side view of the cottage. The landscaping is lovely. There is a dock, as I have mentioned above and you can choose to fish or just sit there at the end and dip your toes in the water as you contemplate..
