Cottages of Sunset Beach by Barb Driscoll

Monday, September 26, 2011 @ 12:09 PM

Bill, Kim and daughter Emily Porterfield purchased this wonderful beachfront cottage in 1986.
The cottage, at 8250 W. Gulf Blvd., is a family owned home with original knotty pine and cedar walls. When they first purchased their home there were 7 coats of paint on all 3 bedroom walls. All the boards were planed, taking them down to the original finish. This home was sold as a tear down but the Porterfields saw the potential and valued the historical “character of the old Sunset Beach”.
The cottage was built in 1940 and a doctor used the home as a weekend place. After selling the cottage the last thing heard from him was that he went sailing with the selling price.
The beautiful ’54 Cadillac has been owned by the family for 20 yrs and the exterior has been refurbished to its original splendor.
The Porterfields love living on Sunset Beach and enjoy showcasing their home with collections of Florida furniture, lamps and knick-knacks.
Enjoy loving where you live!
