In keeping with the community spirit of New Urbanism, all of the community’s delightful amenities are located within easy walking distance of every home. The magnificent Caliza Pool at the heart of the community features multiple pools, including a 5,000-foot saltwater pool. Well-landscaped public parks, the Caliza Restaurant and the Fonville Press, the community’s combination bookstore-coffee shop-restaurant, encourage neighbors to meet and mingle – and all are just steps away from your Alys Beach home. Walking is the preferred mode of transportation within the community and the comfortable chairs and benches that dot the common areas invite friendly conversation. Designed to create minimal impact to the Gulf Coast’s unique environment, the community of Alys Beach has also been built to withstand the forces of nature that have sculpted that environment. Every home in this unique planned community has been built to Florida’s Green Home Designation Standard, as well as the Institute for Business & Home Safety’s Fortified standards, allowing owners to quality for a special insurance program. The homes were designed and built with passive heating and cooling systems to reduce energy consumption. Sustainable construction practices were used to recycle 75% of construction waste. Cognizant of the Emerald Coast’s designation as an environmentally-protected Blue Wave Beach area, Alys Beach zoning laws ban signs and storefronts from the community’s pristine beach to preserve its natural beauty.
