Ever considered purchasing your Dream Home, on the Bay in the world-class Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort? Then you owe it to yourself to check out 166 Cove on the Bay. This four-bedroom home encompasses almost 2,000 square feet and has received extensive renovations. The residence's waterfront location overlooks the broad expanse of Choctawhatchee Bay and includes a dock! This neighborhood is tucked away between the bay and the Links championship golf course. Since short-term vacation rentals are not permitted here, residents can truly enjoy this serene, privileged enclave.
Cove on the Bay has a lovely community pool overlooking a lagoon, a grilling area, a picnic pavilion, and a playground. This superb waterfront setting includes the bay, forested fairways that wrap around the neighborhood, and two lovely lagoons.
Having a residence on the outstanding Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort provides an idyllic lifestyle. You have access to the crystalline white beaches, four championship golf courses, a pro tennis club, and a fitness center. This highly desirable spot is near the enchanting Village of Baytowne Wharf and the swank tropically urbane town center of Sandestin known as Grand Boulevard. Grand Boulevard features restaurants with casual bars, fashion boutiques, fine clothiers, galleries, a Publix grocery store, a liquor wine shop, and a state of the arts multiplex theater which features a special VIP dining area to view new movies. Baytowne Wharf was inspired by the architecture found in the French Quarter of New Orleans. This village straddles a lagoon and is anchored by a long wharf that juts out into the expansive bay beside the Sandestin Yacht Club Marina. The captivating village includes restaurants with bars that have live music, specialty shops, unique family amusements, outdoor concerts, fun festivals throughout the year, and vibrant seasonal fireworks celebrations.
This home features a number of windows providing great views of the sparkling bay during the daytime and the magical twinkling lights across the waters from the mainland at night. Spectacular sunsets occur right over the bay during the summer months, while enchanting full moons rise over the water grace other times of the year. The spacious dock provides these views firsthand with a bench and a set of Adirondack chairs that face out toward the bay. A boat lift is provided with enough strength to hold a large pontoon boat, the preferred mode of transportation on the bay. Both the dock and boat lift have been newly put in place. Here you can enjoy cruising over to the Village of Baytowne Wharf to enjoy holiday fireworks on the water during special holidays, shoot over to the boat party at Crab Island, or head to dinner at Destin’s HarborWalk Village.
