Finding a "bargain" for a residence along Scenic 30A can be nearly impossible, especially since this picturesque world has become a popular destination among the rich and famous. The crystalline white shoreline and glowing jewel-toned gulf waters have been proclaimed one of America's most beautiful beaches. However, at Ocean Reef Real Estate Sales, we present the three best current beachfront values along East Scenic 30A. They include a single-family residence in Carillon Beach, along with a townhome and a condo in Seagrove Beach.
The Best Priced Beachfront Residence
Ocean Reef Real Estate Sales is pleased to offer a new listing that represents the best value for a gulf-front single-family residence in the current market. It is located in the exclusively gated world of Carillon Beach at 284 Beachside Drive. This stately 'Old Florida' styled beach home has four bedrooms, two ensuite luxury baths, a full hall bath, and a half-bath powder room. The gracious two-story residence encompasses almost 2,000 square feet featuring charming nautical light blue exteriors and white trim. It sits upon a sugary dune overlooking the private beach on a .35-acre parcel encompassing around 15,250 square feet. This home can provide you with the perfect family compound at the beach while also serving as a lucrative vacation rental property. Our highly acclaimed Ocean Reef Resorts property management team represents Eau Naturale and has reported recent gross annual rental income of $200,000.
The open living area has walls of windows offering abundant natural light and stunning views of the gulf. Comfortable tropically-styled furnishings include a white slip-covered couch, a matching love seat, two elegant accent chairs, and charming cushioned window seats.
A gulf-front columned veranda and an open sun deck span the width of the open living, dining, and kitchen area. The veranda has a dining set inviting you to enjoy favorite drinks and meals alfresco while relishing the dazzling gulf views. The sundeck has white Adirondack chairs overlooking the sensational seascape, and nearby beach access conveniently leads down to the beautiful white-sand shore.

The community is centered upon a large lagoon beside the shimmering shoreline connecting to a rare Coastal Dune Lake known as Lake Powell.

This mixture supports a wonderful habitat of fish, waterfowl, and other coastal wildlife. The bright beach spans 3,900 linear feet beside the luminescent emerald-hued gulf.
