Churchill Oaks is a stellar new exclusively gated residential community that provides a beautiful bay front setting for your ultimate dream home. It is located on 40-forested acres nestled beside Choctawhatchee Bay in Santa Rosa Beach on the inlet of Churchill Bayou. This convenient locale is just north of the Scenic 30A junction to Emerald Coast Parkway and less than five miles away from Miramar Beach.
The marvelous meticulously planned community includes a total of 95 home sites scattered across the shore of the bay and around two spring fed lakes that are stocked with Bass. Almost half of the 40 acre property is permanently set aside to preserve the natural lush landscaping providing a magical setting with a magnificent canopy of moss draped Live Oak trees, Magnolias, Palmetto Palms, towering Long Leaf Pines and indigenous native grasses.
An impressive gate completed with antique Chicago brick provides a formal private majestic entry into this tranquil forested world.
An eight foot wide elevated boardwalk meanders along almost one mile of the serene shoreline on the bay while interconnected well maintained nature trails traverse the entire interior and pass beside the lovely glassy lakes that mirror the sensational scenery. Lush lawns and natural open areas are scattered throughout the property and all of the home sites are either lakefront, bay front or have enchanting views of each in the distance. Each property has enough room for gracious courtyards, outdoor kitchens and lovely gardens that can blend seamlessly into the natural surroundings.
An 8,000 square foot Club House has a prominent position on a point overlooking the bay and bayou inlet. It is surrounded by three swimming pools with gurgling decorative fountains and an expansive patio for lounging in the sun. Walls of windows on three sides of this turreted brick building and open wrap around covered columned porches provide views of the shimmering pools. An outdoor bar is available for refreshing drinks. Indoors there is a full commercial kitchen and large private Gathering Rooms are available for private special events. There is also a Fitness Room, bathrooms, locker rooms and a state of the arts Media Room. Nearby is a 2,400 square foot pavilion with a 16-foot tall “walk-in” fireplace that is open on all four sides to provide a special place of warmth for social conviviality on crisp winter evenings.
Since this is a newer preplanned residential development there are still a lot of home sites to choose from and some completed masterpieces of design. You will become truly enchanted while driving past the gate under the canopy of southern moss draped trees, beside the sparkling spring fed lakes and over to the beautiful bay. A preferred list of ten community approved architectural firms has been selected to insure the paramount premier quality of custom designs for each home encompassing integral craftsmanship for the creation of a superior residential community. Architectural styles include various Americana inspired colonial designs that accentuate splendorous southern styling and classic grandeur.

They range in price from $1,445,000 to $1,695,000 for the completed masterpieces and $1,695,000 and $4,250,000 for those readying construction.
