Located 20 miles to the north of spring break mecca Daytona Beach, the much more languid Flagler Beach has been called a great small town and a fantastic place to live in retirement. The condo itself offers much that can be described as generous. Generous balcony views of the Atlantic Ocean, located to the east across A1A and the beach. Generous views from a second balcony of Silver Lake, which connects to the Intracoastal Waterway to the west. Generous amenities, including two underground parking spaces, a common outdoor kitchen with grills, a lap pool and a putting green. This first-floor end unit includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms. You'll like the, yes, generous space in the combined living and dining room, and the wide-planked hardwood floors. There's a pass-through into the dining room from the kitchen, which makes serving meals a snap. The centerpiece of the galley-style kitchen is a stainless steel, French door refrigerator. And there's plenty of counter top area for food prep. All windows include hurricane shutters.
