Searching for your ultimate Dream Home that can also dock a big boat? They’re a rare find in Destin since other than some properties on Holiday Isle and a few harbor front homes, deep water dockage here is nearly nonexistent. The Gulf is out of the question, and most homes along Choctawhatchee Bay have shallow water near the shoreline. Although they may accommodate shallow bottomed boats and pontoons with a long dock, a big boat is too deep for such waters. People elsewhere who have big boats have to store them in pricey facilities when not in use.
However, this magnificent home at 134 West Country Club Drive in Destin’s well established prestigious Indian Bayou neighborhood does harbor big boats!
Three words aptly describe this 4,238 square foot estate, which is “Opulent” “Majestic” and “Lavish!” The private dock comes with a covered 20,000-pound boat lift that can berth boats and yachts. Within no time at all, you can cruise out of the bayou and enter a deep part of the bay and enter the Gulf side harbor in Destin. This Mediterranean styled villa graces almost half an acre of lushly landscaped grounds and includes three bedrooms along with three and one half luxury baths.
It has a very stately presence with an arched soaring columned entry flanked by tropical palms. Ornate beveled glass doors lead into the foyer, which features a stunning two-story cathedral ceiling, a contemporary starburst chandelier, and a regal staircase that leads up to an open landing. Travertine marble and luxurious hardwood flooring flow throughout the home.
A bright sunny open living area with a giant wall-mounted TV above a contemporary gas fireplace has a wall of double glass doors leading out to a palatial swimming pool.
It is crowned by a Hot Tub, adorned with columned pergolas, has a fireplace, an expansive patio, and a Wet Bar Grill area for entertaining. Steps lead down from the Pool Pergola to a grassy lawn with a raised walkway to the dock.
A modern state of the art kitchen features stainless steel appliances, floor to ceiling honey-toned custom cabinetry, sleek black granite countertops, and chic built-in wrap around seating.
A formal dining room with tall ceilings has a sunny window, while a hallway nearby includes two large glass fronts to feature a selection of fine wines.
The first floor Master Bedroom features an elegant tray ceiling, a spacious sitting area, office or den, and a lavish, luxurious en suite bath. The two Guest Bedrooms upstairs also feature full en suite luxury baths and are near a large Media Room with a Wet Bar, as well as a gigantic wall-mounted TV featuring a Surround Sound System.
A wall of glass doors that are heavily curtained for daytime theater use leads to a balcony overlooking the pool.
This amazing home is value-priced for $1,450,000, which averages $342.14 per square foot. Currently there are three other Indian Bayou homes for sale with docks from $1,379,000 with 3,553 square feet, $2,099,000 with 5,600 square feet and $2,995,000 with 6,887 square feet.
