30A’s Only Beachfront Lot for Sale
Posted by Destin Real Estate Sales on Thursday, January 27th, 2022 at 7:40am.
Scenic 30A has become a highly sought-after place to build on the bright white crystalline beach due to the heavenly idyllic lifestyle it offers. This land at Lot 1 Blue Mountain Rd is now available for sale. In fact, it is the only beachfront property currently available anywhere on Scenic 30A. It sits high upon a sugary white dune in Blue Mountain Beach, nearly twenty-four feet above sea level providing optimum protection. A seawall down below that extends over fifty linear feet across.
This property encompasses almost one-quarter acre and used to be the location of an older beach house which was removed to make space for a new one. For this reason, the grounds near the street side include established tropical landscaping, which has been growing for many years and provides a more private setting. It is a deep lot that extends over 350 linear feet from the road to the high tide line along the private beach.
A generous building pad can accommodate a three-story tall home with ample garage space on the lower level. The first floor level of a new home would provide stunning views of the jewel-toned gulf almost 24 feet above the beach below. This lower level would be the perfect location for a sun patio, swimming pool, and a bubbling hot tub where you could enjoy the sensational seascape. The top two levels would offer even more glorious panoramic vistas into the southern horizon and across the shimmering shoreline.
This stellar location is special in more ways than one. Not only is it gulf front, but it is positioned in the heart of Blue Mountain Beach with convenient access to S Co Hwy 83. This location places you minutes away from grocery stores, restaurants, and a wide variety of delightful diversions at the enchanting Village of Baytowne Wharf and the swank Grand Boulevard at Sandestin. It is also within walking distance of a creek-like connection to the open gulf from Big Redfish Lake. Coastal dune lakes of this kind are a rare natural treasure found hardly anywhere else in the world. Regular ongoing tidal action creates a magical mixture of salt and fresh artisan spring-fed water. This creates an abundant natural habitat for wildlife, waterfowl, and a wide array of fish. These highly unique and pristine settings are fun to explore, fish, paddleboard, or kayak.
Blue Mountain Beach has the highest elevation along the entire Gulf of Mexico. The twenty-five-foot dunes near the beach reach over sixty-four feet tall in the neighboring forested hills. Blue Mountain Beach was named by early Spanish explorers mapping the gulf's coastline from afar to keep safe from unfriendly Native Americans. They noticed what they thought was a "blue mountain" rising above the flat "beach" on each side and named it such. They were actually seeing the towering dunes and forested hills, which at that time were covered with abundant Blue Lupine flowers.
This part of Walton County is renowned for being blessed with over 15,000 acres of protected forests and state beach parks. Grayton Beach State Park is less than three miles away from Blue Mountain Beach towards the east. It was recently named one of the most beautiful coastlines in America. It features almost 2,000 acres of preserved forests, a beautiful beach, shimmering dunes, pristine wetlands, and another exotic coastal dune lake. A nature path meanders through the expansive forest in each direction for 4.5 miles available for hiking or trail biking. Besides the serene scenery, adventurers may spot white-tailed deer, squirrels, rabbits, gray foxes, and an occasional black bear. Seagulls, great blue herons, snowy white egrets, osprey hawks, and American bald eagles can be seen soaring overhead or fishing near the shore.
The coastal village of Blue Mountain Beach itself is mostly residential with a charming, almost Bohemian-type atmosphere and home to some local artists. It also features popular restaurants, an old-fashioned ice cream parlor, a wonderful bakery, and Walton county's oldest health food store. Here, visitors can purchase organic produce, smoothies, homeopathic remedies, Tupelo honey, scented soaps, candles, as well as massage therapy. This locale is less than three miles away from picturesque coastal villages in each direction. Iconic Seaside towards the east hosts seasonal festivals, free live music concerts in their outdoor amphitheater, fireworks on special holidays, restaurants, beach bars, boutiques, and galleries. The Santa Rosa Beach village center of Gulf Place towards the west is also very nearby. It features a large palm-lined outdoor amphitheater bordered by restaurants, specialty shops, and galleries. It also features live concerts, seasonal festivities, and art shows throughout the year.
