Alys Beach Meets the Bay
Posted by Destin Real Estate Sales on Thursday, March 30th, 2017 at 7:59am.
The remarkable architecture found in prestigious Alys Beach along South Walton’s Scenic 30A has inspired the design of a sensational water front home on the bay that borders the extensive Point Washington State Forest. The Dutch Indies Colonial design mirrors what’s found at Alys Beach with bright white stucco walls, soaring stepped roofing eaves, square arched portals and thick concrete shingles. However the location of this stately home offered for sale is at the exclusively gated bay front residential community known as The Estuary in Santa Rosa Beach. The privileged private forested setting on Choctawhatchee Bay includes towering pine trees, magnificent Magnolias and ancient Live Oaks.
This awe inspiring 5,393 square foot home encompasses five bedrooms with full luxury baths en suite and was constructed in 2016. The classic architectural styling blends seamlessly with elegant contemporary details, worthy of being featured in Architectural Digest. It was created by Regal Stephens Construction, a family operated company that originated in Houston with outstanding custom designed homes and commercial properties. They are now renowned along the coast of Northwest Florida for delivering award winning homes that provide “the sizzle with the steak.” Regal Stephens has completed Penthouses in Destin along with opulent custom homes in a cornucopia of architectural styles located in Watercolor, Watersound and Sandestin.
The stately elegance of this classic home is immediately apparent as you pull into the entry court yard upon a slate toned brick paver driveway accented with pillared open flame gas lanterns.
The thirteen foot tall custom front door opens into a long galley foyer highlighted by multiple crystal starburst chandeliers and a wall of windows that provide breathtaking views of the beautiful bay.
This adjoins the spacious Florida Sun Room overlooking the large bayside infinity pool that spans the entire width of this regal residence. Beamed cathedral ceilings soar above while a wall of huge plate glass windows provides panoramic views of the pool, bay and a long dock with a boatlift. This spacious room was designed for entertaining with a giant hooded stainless steel gas grill, a wet bar and a walk-in fireplace.
It opens into an expansive Great Room that has another walk-in fireplace and a high vaulted ceiling adorned with a triple tiered crystal chandelier that resembles a giant diamond ring. A wall of large glass panels showcases the sparkling scenery outdoors, which may be seen from the open state of the arts kitchen, dining and seating areas.
The Gourmet Kitchen has top of the line restaurant grade stainless steel appliances, a Carrera Marble encased island and a large refrigerated Wine Cooler Room.
The Master Bedroom wing features another wall of windows overlooking the bayside pool, a vaulted tray ceiling and a huge marble wrapped luxury bath with a free standing soaking tub, a wide double spray glassed in shower as well as twin vanities. The Guest Bedrooms include private luxury baths and one of them has three built-in full sized berths.
An open studio styled poolside Guest House provides separate quarters with beamed cathedral ceilings, a seating area, a kitchenette and a private bath.
