Direct beach access via boardwalk that runs next to our home. It's 200-300 yards from our home to the dunes.

“The beach communities on Scenic Highway 30A somehow manage to drip Southern family charm, pioneer cutting-edge design, and stay out of the limelight,” wrote The New York Times. “They also share what may be the best beach in the continental U.S.”

Watersound is one of the most exclusive communities along 30A with almost two miles of very private beaches. Our entire community is located on the beach side of Highway 30-A. Unlike most of the homes in the neighboring communities of Rosemary Beach, WaterColor and Seaside, you won't have to cross Highway 30-A to get to the beach.

Of the almost two hundred lots in Watersound West Beach, this classic Nantucket beach house is the closest to the turquoise waters of the gulf. A short 200-300 yard walk down the boardwalk takes you over one of our dune lakes to the century old sand dunes of Watersound. There are absolutely no streets to cross as the beach boardwalk literally runs down our property line.

WaterSound is centrally located among the charming beach towns that Coastal Living Magazine often profiles, known as The Beaches of South Walton, and convenient to the unique shops, restaurants and nightlife the area offers. Watersound is St. Joe's newest 30-A community and offers world renowned sugar white beaches, a huge zero-entry swimming pool, a clubhouse with outdoor fireplace & large covered grilling area, miniature putting park, games green and miles of walking/biking trails. Also, our home has nine bicycles, one twin kayak and twelve beach chairs for the use of our guests.

The ground floor features an open living space built for entertaining. The great room, dining area and kitchen flow together. The great room has a large LCD flat screen with DVD and seating for ten. The dining area seats 8 with 2 additional seats at the bar. The fully equipped kitchen has all you need for a great seafood meal. A Thermador gas range, Viking dishwasher, and large Viking fridge all ensure cooking is a snap. An icemaker in the kitchen keeps you from having to go out to get ice for a day at the beach. The laundry room is located on the ground floor and features full size front-loading washer/dryer and ironing area. A full bathroom with shower rounds out the ground floor rooms.

The second level features three beautifully furnished bedrooms. Each bedroom is complete with equally grand private bathrooms. Additionally, the second landing features two twin beds in a wall nook.

The third floor features two additional private bedrooms. The 'TOWER' bedroom features a Queen bed and large flat screen. The third floor also has an additional private 'BUNK' bedroom with two full twins.

The house has three outside living areas. The front porch features cozy Adirondack chairs that face the community pool so you can relax while keeping an eye on the kids swimming at the pool. Step outside the kitchen door onto a lovely paver patio complete with an outdoor Weber grill and a completely private outdoor shower with hot and cold water. Walk out the back door to a screen porch where a bistro table offers a wonderful place for your morning coffee.

There is nothing left out of this amazing beach house. Truly a home and a community to be remembered.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Our family has been vacationing on 30-A since our children were very small. We have been in love with the area since the first trip we made years ago. The beaches are sugar white and the ocean is amazing. Last year we finally built our dream beach house in our favorite place on earth. Watersound is very quiet and private but still in the middle of world class restaurants and shops. Just like us, you’ll want to come back over and over again. The Richburgs, Atlanta, GA

Why the Owner Chose WaterSound West Beach:
We built in Watersound because it's the most beautiful and private resort community on 30-A. The architecture is unbelievable as St. Joe has done an awesome job in its design. The community seems remote as we have almost two miles of private beaches. However, it's in the center of everything 30-A. You can lay on the beach all day long or spend the day shopping, deep sea fishing, golfing or bike riding. Destin and Panama City are only a few miles away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Of the two hundred lots in Watersound West Beach, our home is absolutely closest house to the beach. Just a few minutes stroll down our boardwalk you will find some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We have nine bicycles for your enjoyment as there are miles and miles of trails to navigate. The West Beach zero-entry community pool is located directly across the street from our home. You can relax on our front porch while watching the kids swim. There is a community park for lawn games and an 18-hole putting course within 100 yards of our home.
