The Retreat, which is located on the pristine shores of a rare coastal dune lake in Blue Mountain Beach overlooks the luminescent jewel toned waters of the gorgeous gulf and is a prestigious paradise. This community of ninety privileged home sites enjoys landmark status since it was the first privately gated residential development completed by the acclaimed Arvida Corporation along Scenic 30A. It lies secluded behind a heavy veil of natural conserved woodlands that are thick with pine, palmetto and oak trees. A long private drive winds down the hill from Scenic 30A in Blue Mountain Beach which marks the highest elevation on the Gulf of Mexico.
The homes are nestled along the environmentally rich diverse shores of Draper Lake which was naturally created by coastal dunes and is found in very few locations anywhere in the world. This precious exotic lake borders 3,000 linear feet of the pure white quartz crystal sanded beach where other opulent homes are located with heavenly panoramic views in all directions. It is immediately obvious that thoughtful consideration was taken in preserving this magnificent natural environment while designing beautiful residences that are placed upon generously apportioned home sites. Although many of the homes are right on the beach or lake, all are within easy walking distance to the gulf and private beach. Here residents enjoy the spectacular Beach Club that looks like a classically columned Greek temple overlooking the bright shimmering white sand and gorgeous gulf from high atop a dune. This soaring temple of sorts has arbors that connect on each side to a his and hers two story pool house compound that has locker rooms, baths, restrooms and showers. The Beach Club faces a spacious, crescent shaped, stone paved sun deck that wraps around a large swimming pool with awesome “infinite” views across the jeweled waters all the way to the southern horizon. A sparkling, splashing fountain in the pool is centered upon a decorative arbor arch leading to a staircase that takes you to the private beach below. The Retreat is a special residential enclave that has rental restrictions so it is preserved exclusively for its privileged owners and their guests.
Prices for this privileged, prestigious paradise run accordingly. Home sites here have sold in the millions on the gulf and complete home packages have been consummated for as high as $6,950,000. At the present time there are only four home sites and two completed homes available for sale at The Retreat. The home sites are priced between $750,000 and $2,700,000. The two completed homes are priced at $2,195,000 and $5,495,000.
