              Old Florida Beach is one of the most desirable vacation spots. The beach is pristine and white and large-never crowded; the gulf turquoise. Great area to YOLO, canoe or kayak. Enjoy the dune lake outflow, especially great for kids. You can walk to Gulf Place for restaurants, boutiques and art shops. You are an easy drive to busier places such as Seaside, Watercolor and Sandestin.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              Why the Owner Chose Old Florida Beach:
              We love the beach, and this beach is the most beautiful we have ever seen. We designed and built this home to take advantage of the fabulous beach it overlooks. It is so roomy and comfortable, and we love it as much as the day it was completed in 2004!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              If you love the beach, nothing compares to looking out over the turquoise gulf, white sands and dunes. If you love a huge uncrowded beach located only steps from your house, this is the place for you. You can walk to a charming dining and shopping area, and you are only a few minutes drive from busy Sandestin, Watercolor, or Seaside. Our home and its location are perfect for all your vacation wishes!
