If you are considering a purchase of a dream home along Scenic 30A, check out this opportunity for a perfect pallet at Lot 4 Paradise by the Sea Blvd in Seacrest Beach. This highly privileged location sited between Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach is only an arrow’s shot away from the beautiful shore and ready for your custom-designed dream home!
Scenic 30A has become the top destination among the rich and famous, which is not surprising since this route provides an idyllic setting for incredible family beach vacations. High-rise residential towers are not permitted in Walton County, which limits a building’s height to no more than three stories tall. This limits the number of properties available here compared to Panama City Beach towards the east and Destin towards the west, making real estate here a precious commodity. Scenic 30A has many superlatives, including the award-winning crystalline white shoreline and gorgeous jewel-toned gulf waters. The sugar sand beaches are composed of pure white quartz crystals, which were washed down into the gulf from Appalachian mountaintops during the last Ice Age. They were pulverized into this powdery form by wave action and the ever-changing tides for about 12,000 years. The bright white bottom near the coast reflects tiny microscopic green plankton that is illuminated by sunlight. This creates the jeweled water effect, which ranges from a dazzling emerald green for which the coast was named to lime peridot and turquoise. The usual swimming pool clear water has a luminescent quality and actually seems to glow like glittering jewels.
South Walton County is also highly desirable since there are many thousands of acres of coastal woodlands permanently set aside for preservation. There are protected state forests and beach parks, including Topsail Hill Preserve, Grayton Beach State Park, and Deer Lake. The Grayton Beach State Park was recently named one of the most beautiful beaches in America after completing an extensive environmental shore study. These state parks and several other places along 30A are lavished with rare natural treasures known as Coastal Dune Lakes. Such exotic bodies of water are only found in four other locations in the world, including New Zealand, Australia, Madagascar, and the Pacific Northwest. Amber-colored creek-like tributaries meander across the white sandy dunes from the lake into the gulf. These shallow waterways flow in opposite directions related to high tides coming in and the low tides going out. This constant flow creates a magical mixture of artisan spring-fed and salted water. They support a thriving habitat for wildlife, a wide variety of fish, and lots of waterfowl. Many visitors enjoy launching a paddleboard, kayak, or canoe to explore these lovely lakes or try their luck fishing. These coastal dune lakes are just minutes away along the shoreline from this property’s location.
