The results of this “discovery” are not surprising since the crystalline sugar white beaches and glowing emerald green waters are found hardly anywhere else in the world. Those who have vacationed here over the years are starting to buy places of their own, and many rent them out for lucrative income as well.

Stylish, sexy, and modern?  Yes modern!  

Here along the coast of Northwest Florida, most homes are influenced by the beach.  Fortunately, our version of coastal decor is stylish and doesn't mean coral print sofas and sculptures of seahorses (anymore).  And yes, a home can be sexy and most are here.  What is rare in South Walton, however, is a modern home.
