Sandestin is the most established prestigious resort on Northwest Florida's Emerald Coast. It spans 2,400 acres of forested luscious grounds that include over seven miles of sugary shoreline on the glistening gulf and lovely serene waters of beautiful bay. This gated community comprises sixty unique neighborhoods that include luxury towers, condominiums and single-family homes. There are four championship golf courses that meander across the resort from the gulf to the bay that are adorned with lovely lagoons. A world class Tennis Club features fifteen clay courts and there is a marina that harbors big yachts for the privileged residents. There is also a Beach Club and staffed Fitness Center available. Residency allows you to swim at a selection of community swimming pools and have access to the bright sugar white beach. The charming New Orleans French Quarter inspired Village of Baytowne Wharf and upscale Grand Boulevard are part of the resort with an abundant array of restaurants, lively bars, boutiques, seasonal festivals, free concerts, fireworks and amusements.
Burnt Pine happens to be the premier gated community within the gated community of Sandestin. As soon as you enter this guarded private world you are amazed at the beauty of the forested setting, the myriad of lovely lagoons, the grandeur of its opulent custom designed homes as well as the expansive yards that are lushly landscaped and meticulously maintained providing a distinct tropical ambiance. Typical prices here are in the millions but this particular home is "affordably" priced at $749,000, which distinguishes it as the lowest priced home available in this wonderful world. It also comes with an incredible “perk” which includes a golf outing for four guests at one of the championship golf courses, a pass to the Beach Club and an Introductory Membership to the private Burnt Pine Golf Club.
This home at 3564 Preserve Drive encompasses nearly 3,000 square feet and resembles a gracious hospitable hacienda combined with a Mediterranean flair. A paver stone driveway gracefully leads up to this home where you go through a gated courtyard to a handsome stone columned entryway.
