This unique custom built home located at 3478 Scenic Gulf Drive is a truly spectacular beachfront beauty that sits on the shimmering white shore overlooking the jewel toned gulf waters in Destiny Shores, among Destin’s most premier prestigious communities.
You may be destined for a destination with destiny in this five bedroom two story beach home that comprises almost 4,300 square feet of spacious living area. The handsome Mediterranean styled exterior ushers you into a gracious grand entry foyer with an elegant Powder Room. This foyer leads to an expansive living area that has a full wall of windows providing panoramic vivid beachfront views. The large open Great Room that looks out onto this scenery has gleaming honey toned hardwood flooring and is hefty enough to have two areas set aside for entertainment. A decorative formal mantle richly accents a gas fireplace at the far end of the room which is flanked on each side by custom shelving with a curved alcove above for the convenient placement of a TV. The entire Great Room next to the wall of windows has glass doors that lead out onto the covered grand balcony that looks down directly upon the beach. The east end of the room serves as the formal dining area which also has immediate access to the balcony and offers interior views of the beach. Nearby is an open state of the art kitchen with GE stainless steel appliances and a long mottled granite countertop that can seat up to five. There is also a Guest Master Bedroom Suite on this level with access to its own private luxurious bathroom that includes a granite topped vanity and a Garden Tub.

Another Guest bedroom also has access to the glistening beachfront balcony and shares a full hall bath with one of the guest bedrooms.
