A coastal dune lake is a rare lovely treasure all by itself. They are located in less than a handful of places in the entire world but some of them adorn the landscape along Scenic 30A. They sit nestled beside a sugary beach dune that periodically opens up to the glistening gulf, creating an exotic blend of water that supports abundant flora and fauna. This trio of amazing homes is now available on three of these precious South Walton coastal dune lakes for the fortunate few who may acquire them.
The sensational setting of the first coastal dune lake home is at 1465 West County 30A in Santa Rosa Beach and has lushly landscaped grounds that encompass over an acre and a half and could aptly be named “paradise found’! It is perched above Big Redfish Lake with breathtaking views down below that are framed by arching palm trees that are centered on the glowing gulf, which serves as the dazzling backdrop in the distance. An infinity styled pool and a bubbling hot tub with an expansive sun deck patio provides up front center views of this truly heavenly tropical scenery. The modern “New Florida” styling in this home spans across almost 7,000 square feet and is a masterpiece of interior contemporary design.
Golden honey toned, richly beamed hardwood cathedral ceilings soar up from 10 to 24 feet highlighted with a unique wavy effect. Panels of windows in almost every room, some of which go from floor to ceiling, provide individual panoramic views of the tropical paradise surrounding it.
The Gourmet Kitchen includes the very finest appliances, expensive specialty granite topped counters, a Butler’s Pantry, an open dining area, a built-in bar, an adjacent outdoor kitchen and another area where you may dine al fresco. The Master Suite is an entire wing of the house with a gas fireplace, walls of windows, His and Hers separate luxury bathrooms, a Japanese Soaking Tub, a dressing room and a boutique styled walk-in closet. A first floor Guest Quarters is in another wing with two bedrooms, full luxury baths en suite and an acoustically designed Media Room. A magnificent free standing elliptical staircase or an elevator can take you to the second level with two additional bedrooms featuring luxury baths en suite, an adjoining balcony overlooking the scenery and a Fitness Room. This exceptional home also has a three-car garage, a large paver tiled drive that accommodates scores of vehicles, air-conditioned storage rooms, a tankless hot water heater and a whole house generator. Listing price for 1465 West County 30A is $7,970,000.
A short distance away at 155 Bannerman is another amazing coastal dune lake home that is about the same size at 6,933 square feet and is designed in a classic Dutch Colonial style. This design is reminiscent of the romantic charming architecture found in the tropical Dutch Indies but this property has all the modern amenities. It is located in the exclusive enclave of Bannerman Estates on the serene shores of Little Redfish Lake a very short distance away from the glorious gulf. This gracious home has seven bedrooms and each one has a full luxury bath en suite with another bonus full bath and two half baths. It was deliberately designed for entertaining since the almost 7,000 square feet of interior space is accentuated with an additional 4,000 square feet of space outdoors, which includes an expansive covered porch, multiple balconies, and an open stone tiled sun deck.
These span the entire width of the house providing simultaneous panoramic views of the lovely lake, sugary dunes and glittering gulf. An infinity styled pool on the second level shares these vivid views as well which may also be seen from indoors since walls of windows face out upon the stupendous seascape as well. Elegant regal touches abound throughout including giant inlaid herringbone stone flooring, antique oak plank doors, custom arched openings from room to room, vintage white oak flooring, high polish Venetian plaster walls, handmade unique floor tile in all the baths and custom forged wrought iron rails on the open staircase.
The open Great Room, Gourmet Kitchen and four en suite Guest Bedrooms are on the first floor with retractable glass doors that all lead to the saltwater infinity pool patio. An outdoor kitchen allows you to cook and dine poolside while enjoying the awesome views. The Master Bedroom Suite and another Guest Bedroom are on the second level with adjoining balconies. The third floor can serve as an additional Master Suite or Media Entertainment Room and has its own rooftop balcony. All three levels may also be accessed by elevator. A detached garage also serves as a one bedroom Guest Cottage with the same kind of luxurious finishes that comprise the main residence. This home at 155 Bannerman is offered at $11,850,000.
The third waterfront residence is located at 58 Sinclair Lane on Draper Lake. This Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home is somewhat smaller than the others but has the same grand colossal setting with 275’ of lake frontage that is centered on an opening to the gorgeous gulf. The incredible sparkling views wrap around the entire eastern and southern sides of this 3,644 square foot home which features four bedrooms, six baths and includes a charming separate Guest House. This estate resembles a privileged family compound and has never been on the market until now.
Extraordinary architectural features include wide planked hardwood flooring, white washed interiors with creamy white beamed cathedral ceilings, custom cabinetry, multiple sets of French doors leading out to adjacent vista view balconies, a built-in bar, Calcutta Gold and Carrera marble finishes. The Guest Cottage is just as wonderful as the main house and has a complete kitchen, an open living/dining area, an individual bedroom and a full bath.
These quarters overlook the private pool. This home also has access to the Draper Lake community pools, lake docks and an Observation Tower that are close by. This home at 58 Sinclair Lane is listed at $5,185,000.
