Life on the water doesn't come in a better package than this waterfront estate positioned on a .7-acre lot in Driftwood Estates. A four-bed, six-and-a-half-bath home with 5,208 square feet of living space, it features no HOA membership or dues (grandfathered in) and panoramic views across Choctawhatchee Bay with a private dock (replaced in 2020) and a lift modifiable to accommodate a boat or jet skis -- an ideal retreat for water or boating enthusiasts, with easy access to Crab Island and the Gulf of Mexico.Inside the Mediterranean-influenced home covered with limestone brick, you'll find features that are second to none including dual Miele gas and electric range, a central vacuum system, interior surround sound, a whole-home generator, residential elevator, security system, three-car garage and three new A/C units installed in July 2020. The monumental main entry door was custom-crafted in rough iron, leading the way to a two-story foyer. Enjoy a large kitchen, butler's pantry, family room, formal and casual dining areas, music room and library/den. The second floor hosts the water-facing owner's suite, which includes his-and-her bathrooms with showers and a Jacuzzi tub and dreamlike dressing rooms. The pool area is enclosed by a screened porch that was replaced in 2019 and boasts an outdoor kitchen with grill and refrigerator, a full outdoor bathroom and shower, and separate heating components for the pool and spa. Lush landscaping including citrus and fig trees, loquats and a variety of palm trees has been well manicured and includes a water well for the lawn; the original seawall has been well maintained and features new rip-rap. Additional features include numbered hurricane canvas covers for the windows, underground utilities, a termite policy in place through June 2022 with a transmittable bond and a concrete tile roof over the home that sits on a concrete slab. The home features only cherry hardwood or stone flooring, three fireplaces, three Fisher & Paykel dishwashers, GE Monogram refrigerator and GE Profile Advantium and convection ovens. The butler's pantry features a wet bar, double-door Frigidaire, dual-temperature wine cooler for 120 bottles and elegant cabinetry. The laundry room includes new extra-wide Samsung washer and dryer. The owner's wife, of French extraction, was influenced by the images she carried of her property in South France, finding a blend of a luxuriant Floridian nature and expanded water views. Crystal chandeliers, imported mosaic decor and a white marble gazebo against the water are personal touches. Ensconced in privacy, access to this home is only available through a private double-gated estate entrance with a security keypad and intercom at the driveway's entrance. The entrance to the home is accented by a large white marble dolphin fountain and a large courtyard paved on a Venetian pattern. Parking is ample, with room for 12 vehicles and an extra-wide garage that accommodates three cars with access to an attic lined with shelves for storage, which could be converted into additional living space, connected to the main home by a covered breezeway.

Despite its quiet seclusion, Driftwood Estates is conveniently located near all of the amenities found inside Sandestin® Golf and Beach Resort, Ascension Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast and the shopping and dining found at Grand Boulevard, Silver Sands Outlet Mall, and other attractive centers in Destin. The beautiful Sandestin Marina and Baytown Wharf are easily and quickly accessible by boat.
