'Heart of Palms' in the gated, Gulf front community of Old Florida Beach is a quiet retreat for both families and older guests. Just 30 yards from the Community Swimming Pool, 50 yards to the dock on Draper Lake and 100 yards from the luxuriously wide Beach.
Professionally decorated with all new Chef's Kitchen, Two Master King Bedrooms (1st floor and 2nd floor), Four Bathrooms - Master with jetted tub, rainfall shower in second Master. The first floor has one Master (King) with jetted whirlpool tub/shower and second bedroom (twin beds which can be made into a King for a total of three kings) and separate full bath. Chef's kitchen with all appliances and marble counters is fully equipped for the gourmet cook. Time saving family-sized washer and dryer is on first floor off of the kitchen.
The second floor has another Master Bedroom (King) with walk-in rainfall shower and french doors to covered balcony. An additional large bedroom has four twins (two singles and one bunk bed) with full bath. From the second floor hallway, step out to the wrap-around mostly covered deck where sunbathers can lounge in the sun or families can share a meal or a nap under the tin-roofed deck. View sunsets over the Gulf from this vantage point.
Nearby, walk to favorite local restaurants: Goatfeathers with local seafood market or Cafe Tango. Just down the road on 30-A, walk or bike to Gulf Place shopping center for more restaurants, ice cream, clothing stores, wine shop or pharmacy. A bike path connects all of the communities along highway 30-A including Seaside, Watercolor, Grayton Beach. The outlets of Sandestin are only 15 minutes drive from here. Golfers may play at the Santa Rosa Beach and Golf Club only 1.4 miles away and other golf courses nearby.
For the nature lover, Draper Lake Preserve edges along the Old Florida Beach neighborhood and has a dock just 5 houses down the street from which you may fish or launch a canoe. Only three other areas in the world have these 'coastal dune lakes' that connect to the ocean through the sand dunes. This shallow channel makes a safe area where young children can play for hours in very shallow water.
The new Northwest Florida Beaches airport (ECP) is an easy 30 minutes away and Destin/Ft. Walton (VPS) is 40 minutes away.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Rosa Beach, FL, USA:
We wanted a permanent place near our grown children. Our daughter and granddaughter live nearby and our oldest son and his family live in Birmingham. Seems we were renting bigger and bigger homes and finally decided it would be a good investment to buy our own place in Santa Rosa. This is not just a rental unit property for us. It is our home at the beach and so we've put in the amenities and quality appliances and beds that we are used to in our main residence. I've always said that I wouldn't want to stay in a vacation place that wasn't as nice as my own home. It wouldn't be much of a vacation in that case!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Old Florida Beach is quiet, being over three blocks south of the main road, Hwy 30-A, is protected on one side by Draper Lake preserve and is gated to keep traffic away. Children can easily move around the neighborhood like we used to do as kids. The beach is very wide here and the lake with dock makes for fun hours of fishing or just sitting and viewing the sunlight on the dunes.
