Sandestin Homes For Sale
Sandestin is a fantastic beach getaway for many and a full-time lifestyle for others! The Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort spans 2,400 acres between the Gulf of Mexico and the Choctawhatchee Bay and enjoys access to some of the world's most coveted sugar-white sand beaches. One of the key benefits of living on the resort is that owners and their guests enjoy quick access to the beach, even in peak season, when public access points can be challenging in the local area. Another significant benefit is accessibility. There is a lot to do without ever getting in a car and into traffic. You can get around conveniently by foot, bike, golf cart, and shuttle (tram map). Inside the resort, the Village of Baytowne Wharf is a charming community town center with shopping, dining, nightlife, outdoor movies and concerts, and more. The Grand Boulevard is just outside the resort, an upscale shopping center with retail and restaurants. You may take a little ride by golf cart to pick up some snacks at Publix, grab a nice dinner at Emeril's Coastal Italian, or catch a new movie at a ten-screen theater. Sandestin is also a golfer's paradise with four championship golf courses (Baytowne, Links,Raven & Burnt Pine). There is also a 123-slip marina if boating or fishing is your idea of an adventure. If tennis is your sport, Sandestin also has a world-class tennis center, serving up 12 HydroGrid clay and three hard tennis courts. There is so much going on in the resort that when you buy a home in Sandestin, you're not just buying real estate; you're buying into the Sandestin lifestyle.
There are over 70 distinct communities or neighborhoods within Sandestin, each with a different personality. Sandestin real estate has a variety of condos, townhomes, villas, cottages, and estates in every price range. As you become familiar with the resort, you will notice a "bayside" and "beachside" of the resort. Highway 98 divides the property, although a pedestrian/golf cart tunnel connects each side under 98. While not the rule, the bayside may be more suited to full-time residents of the resort and enjoy easy access to The Village of Baytowne Wharf and all its attractions without leaving the gates of Sandestin. Both sides rent well, but naturally, the beachside provides the quickest access to the beach. Regardless of which side of the resort, Sandestin Condos are hot properties right now.
Amenities include a beach access, 4 championship golf courses, a worldclass tennis center with 15 courts, 4 resort swimming pools, 15 private neighborhood pools, professionally staffed fitness center, shuttle service (tram map), and a variety of venues for events and weddings.
