Following Hurricane Frederick in 1979, the Federal Government established the CCL (the Coastal Construction Line) which prevented any structures to be built in front of that line. Frederick was devastating to Gulf Shores and many properties were obliterated. Harbor House was built before the CCL went into effect and was built far onto the beach. All the other buildings were built behind the CCL leaving the 2 Harbor House beachfront buildings far in front of them. Essentially this has created a view from the top floors of these buildings that is simply breath taking. There are no obstructions. South, East or West you can see it all. In the mornings, the dolphins come out and play, sometimes it's the stingrays that follow the waves right up to the beach. During storms, there is no better place to watch everything roll in. Unobstructed views.
Condos have a very square feel to them, apartment type living. These Harbor House Penthouses are more beach cottages sitting up on top of apartments. With an open-air feel, great fenestration on the Gulf and vaulted ceilings you realize they are homes, beach houses sitting up with a view you will smile about for years to come.
