Exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire one of the most superb waterfront estates in Destin, Florida, 100' of which fronts the scenic Choctawhatchee Bay! This new construction offers a unique opportunity for a buyer to acquire a project of profound structural integrity, owned by a seller who has the utmost care and concern for quality and craftsmanship. Perched atop one of the highest elevations in the area, this .88-acre compound is oriented for convenient and private access on the preferred west end of Indian Trail. Magnificent live oaks grace the site, setting the perfect stage for a stately drive meandering through the indigenous landscape, leading to your new 3,850 SF home and carriage home, as well as your two-car garage, pool, beach, and...coveted bay views!
A covered breezeway attaches the main home with the garage. The carriage home is independently accessible for the privacy of guests. All exterior balconies are decked with beautiful Ipe, a costly wood species that is naturally resistant to rot, as it is nearly twice as dense as other woods and immensely stronger. All the windows are impact resistant, with glass that contains special UV-filtering qualities, and fabulous interior and exterior mahogany doors, all custom-milled and built by renowned EF San Juan.
The extra-reinforced foundation sits over 17' above sea level and utilizes fiberglass as opposed to rebar to prevent corrosive fracturing, as well as to achieve superior strength. Through the building process, following the installation of the standing seem metal roof, the interior of both the main home and carriage home have been climate-controlled by temporary air-conditioning units, further supporting a more pure indoor air environment. All wiring throughout the home is typical of a commercial-grade installation, encapsulated by flexible metal conduit. All ductwork is fabricated from sheet metal to circulate more pure air than with fiberglass ductwork. The drywall finish throughout is silky-smooth, all accomplished under "Level 5" finish specifications.
The spectacular infinity edge pool and its waterfall will cascade to a basin far beneath, serving as a stunning backdrop to the white-sandy beach, three sides of which are surrounded by the beautiful bay water. Integrated with formed concrete and CMU block to reinforce and protect the highly elevated homesite, the terrace structure leads to the rare sandy beach that extends much beyond the neighboring shoreline. The beach is surrounded by vinyl sheet piling and rip-rap, all of which reflects over $250,000.00+ of existing site improvements. Considering the extraordinary current cost of lumber, this existing project reflects a value for a discerning Buyer to assume it from its current state, completing the finishes of preference, which will result in a magnificent compound and newly completed home that would command a significant pricepoint following completion.
