Kelly Plantation is one of the most prestigious gated residential communities in Destin. It is named after a founding family who owned a giant timber plantation here many years ago. The premier location is just west of Destin Commons overlooking the vast expanse of Choctawhatchee Bay. You have probably seen it from the Mid Bay Toll Bridge when entering Destin from the north. This lushly landscaped community spans 900 acres of pristine property with natural lagoons, lovely lakes, forested trails and an award-winning championship golf course that runs along part of the shore. A classically columned clubhouse includes a swimming pool and five lighted tennis courts. The main entrance off of Scenic Highway 98 is exquisitely gated with double fountains that lead to a lovely boulevard entry flanked by glossy Magnolias. The very best properties in this piece of paradise overlook the serene, beautiful Choctawhatchee Bay and one of these incredible estates is now available for sale.
This stunning 8,360 square foot Mediterranean style villa with seven bedroom suites and ten baths comprises a one-acre bayfront estate at 4502 Old Plantation Place. It includes a rare deep-water dock with multiple boat lifts that can harbor a large yacht. The entire home has been completely remodeled with meticulous attention to classic styling and includes state of the art amenities.
A new circular brick paver driveway provides a graceful entry that incorporates an individual carriage guest house above a three-car garage. These guest quarters are as luxuriously appointed as the main house with an open living area, a gourmet kitchen, a spacious bedroom and a gorgeous full bath. Towering arched wrought iron doors lead into an open foyer past a columned entrance into the main manor. Once inside you will feel like you are in the regal residence of European aristocracy. Richly toned hardwood flooring flows throughout each room accentuated by high ceilings adorned with thick crown molding for an elegant look.
Walls of windows face the beautiful bay with glass doors that lead from the living room, family room as well as the kitchen to a swimming pool with a screened lanai, a full summer kitchen, a stone fireplace and a bar with two wine coolers. A waterfront wing of the first floor incorporates the Master Bedroom Suite with a sitting area, double walk-in closets and a luxurious spa bath with an ultra jetted tub, a separate shower, double vanities as well as a private water closet.
The open Chef’s Kitchen features all high-end appliances, which include a Wolf 6 gas burner range with a griddle, double ovens, two dishwashers, a broad side by side refrigerator freezer and rich custom cabinetry. There is streaked granite topped island for seating with beautiful lanterns suspended above, a copper sink with a tumbled marble backsplash and a walk-in pantry. Four Guest Bedrooms with en suite baths face the bay upstairs where there are also two bonus rooms that may be used as additional bedrooms, a study, playroom, exercise room or storage space. Another full bath is located off a sitting area and near a state of the art Media Room.
