'Footprints By The Sea' is the vacation home that starts those wonderful memories at the beach watching the dolphins playing in the Gulf in front of your home while you are sitting on the balcony on your rocker enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning or in the late afternoon as the Sun is setting and you are enjoying your favorite beverage.
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: I found Destin, FL when I was stationed at the Pensacola Naval Air Station as a Lt. in the Naval Air Force. My wife and I built our Destin home in 2003 and have used it as much as possible while living in Atlanta, GA. Our 3 children now have families with children and we all enjoy this beautiful setting together. In fact our daughter had triplets a year ago and they are coming to the beach for the first time July 4th.
Why the Owner Chose Destin Pointe: My wife and I have been coming to Destin for the 40 years that we have been married and started looking for a lot on the Gulf to build our dream home. The Destin Pointe community is below the radar and private. We found DP when our life long friends decided to build there. When we went to their new home that was it. There is no other place on the Emerald Coast that is as spectacular as this location. You will find our home at the farthest point to the west on the aerial photo attached next to the East Pass. The adjacent open area is a protected bird sanctuary and will never be built on.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We see fishing boats in the early morning making their way into the Gulf with dolphins playing nearby as we have our first cup of coffee on our Gulfside balcony. In the evening we watch the Sun setting in the West as the sail boats make their way back to Destin Harbor while we enjoy our favorite beverage. During the day you can walk to the nearby recently built pool/pavilion for a change of pace. 'Footprints By The Sea' is the vacation home that begins those wonderful memories at the beach.
