In The Oaks'' is a magnificent 31 acre English Manor Estate, located on beautiful Choctawhatchee Bay. Thoughtfully designed by North Carolina Architect Dennis Lehmann, this extraordinary estate home expresses a stately elegance and life style of a by-gone era. Situated under a lush canopy of century old live oaks, landscape architect, Doug Chism carefully integrated the architectural style of the home with the solitude of the bay front setting to create surroundings that convey grandeur, peace and tranquility. This 5,000 SF family retreat, which includes a carriage house, boat house and double docks, provides one of the most dramatic settings along the Florida Panhandle. A courtyard entry paved with Tennessee fieldstone and surrounded by lush landscape leads to an antique leaded glass entry, one of the many custom details that reflect an old world charm throughout the home. An abundance of windows along the back of the house allow for sweeping bay views from the entry foyer and throughout the entire house. The main living area features a Cocina fireplace, oak floors and built in bookcases. A delightfully inviting sunroom wrapped with windows and features whitewashed bead board walls and ceilings and flagstone floors. A guest bedroom and bath completes this wing of the house.
