Property description

The spectacular Bay view from this unit is unrivaled and glorious. Open the door and step out onto your private, corner balcony with 8th floor vistas. Breathe deeply. Rest your eyes upon the glistening waters of the Choctawhatchee Bay. Look down upon the manicured Grand Lawn and pristine southern gardens. In the distance, the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico wait patiently for you. The walk-in pool and hot tubs below invite you in, when you are ready. The Village of Baytowne Wharf beckons you to explore, feast, shop, play and dance. But first, kick off your shoes, sit down to rest, and watch the sunset God painted for your arrival.

This one bedroom, two bath condominium is tastefully decorated in tropical hues and has brand-new plush carpet (Nov 2013). The upscale kitchen includes stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and a collection of Pampered Chef kitchen tools for those who like to cook occasionally. The master bedroom features a king-size bed, flat screen TV, double vanity and gorgeous marble shower with a soaker tub. The living room chairs and sleeper sofa make TV and movie time comfortable and easy. The dining room table seats four, with two additional bar stools for casual eaters. A second full bath/shower is conveniently located off the kitchen and there is plenty of storage space throughout if you're staying a month or two.

From the elegant and stately Lobby of the Grand Sandestin, step out onto the walking porch and follow the seashell cobblestone sidewalk to the delicious array of restaurants, including the best French restaurant on the Emerald Coast (with a local seafood flair!). The entire Village awaits you with eateries, boutiques, nightclubs, wine tastings, live music, ice skating, a playground, ice cream shops and a merry-go-round. Walk the pier to feed the fish, take photos or watch for dolphins. Stop for drinks or check out where Another Broken Egg is located for your morning breakfast.

The pedestrian-friendly Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort has miles of paved jogging and bike paths. Cardio and weight-lifting equipment is at your disposal in the fitness room. The Resort boasts four championship golf courses, fifteen world class tennis courts and Jolee Island to explore. The Marina offers kayaks, YOLO paddle boards, jet skis, boats and bike rentals. End your perfect day with a sunset dinner cruise aboard the Solaris.

Local seafood, homemade donuts, maritime forests, windswept sand dunes, rare coastal dune lakes and the largest Designer Outlet mall in the United States are all within two to three miles outside the resort for your exploring days.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We left Chicago winters behind to live in this dreamy resort and wish to share it with as many as we can. The soul needs beauty to restore itself from time to time. We live on property, so if you need anything, we're close at hand. Our son is a Second Class Petty Officer for the U.S. Coast Guard; our daughter teaches high school English in Michigan. We are proud of them both and highly supportive of families and parents who raise them. We are happily married 38 years and love welcoming newlyweds!

Why the Owner Chose Baytowne Wharf, Destin, FL, USA:
The resort's beauty is widely known. The exquisite view from this unit is rarely found. This is an end unit. Your balcony is semi-private, with a unit to the left, but none above or to the right.
