Watersound Real Estate includes two different residential communities named Watersound Beach and Watersound Origins.
Watersound Beach is a secluded prestigious premier community of charming Cape Cod Colonial inspired homes and condominiums that overlook the dazzling emerald toned waters of the glittering Gulf of Mexico. It is located near Seacrest Beach off famed Scenic 30A in South Walton. The sensational setting sits upon sugar white quartz crystal dunes adorned with natural sea oats offering panoramic vistas far into the southern horizon. Watersound Beach is graced by the presence of an exotic Coastal Dune Lake called Camp Creek. This precious type of lake is found in only four other parts of the world. It periodically opens and closes to the glistening gulf through tidal action and supports a huge abundance of natural wild life. Lovely landscaped parks meander around the shores of the lake and the preserved sand dunes bordering the gulf. Residents enjoy kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding on the serene waters. Wide planked pedestrian walkways cross over the gently rolling dunes at multiple points providing easy access to the beautiful beach. Four individual neighborhood swimming pools overlook the sparkling scenery. Watersound also has a state of the arts Fitness Center with a Massage Therapy Room, a large “Puttering Park” for golf, a “Yacht Pond” to race remote control toy boats, the “Dunesider Grill” for seasonal poolside dining and paths are designed to be golf cart friendly throughout.
