Old Florida Beach is a premier gated Gulf-front community in Santa Rosa Beach, located near Blue Mountain Beach, off of Scenic Highway 30A, about 12 miles east of Destin, and 24 miles west of Panama City. The community, with 67 home sites, was one of the first to be developed by the St. Joe Company, a preeminent developer of strategically planned communities in northwest Florida. With its high elevations, seclusion and relative scarcity of home sites, homes and home sites in Old Florida Beach are among the most eagerly sought among Gulf-front neighborhoods on the scenic 30A corridor.
Homes in Old Florida Beach consist primarily of the traditional Florida beach cottage style, with their predominance of covered porches and verandas. Prices for homes in the exclusive community generally start at $1-million, and tend to rise according to size and proximity to the beach. Old Florida Beach is a rental friendly neighborhood with vacationers returning yearly.
Along with the beautiful white sand beaches, emerald Gulf waters and dazzling sunsets that all scenic Highway 30A communities are famous for, Old Florida Beach offers its residents a community pool, community gazebo, beach walkover system, and roads trimmed by beautiful brick paver sidewalks. The eastern edge of the neighborhood borders Draper Lake, one of northwestern Florida's 15 rare coastal dune lakes, and residents can access the lake for fishing and kayaking via a community dock. The 27-mile South Walton paved bike/walking trail passes by the community, and the entrance to the Point Washington State Park Longleaf Pine Trail, with miles of trails winding through the forests of South Walton County.
Gulf Place Town Center, with its numerous restaurants and boutique shops, is an easy walk or bike ride away. Noted cuisine at Gulf Place includes Goatfeathers, Cafe Tango, LaPlaya, and the Perfect Pig, while some of the more noteworthy shops include Coastal Paradise (books), Islander Coastal Outfitter (beach wear and gear), Jewel Toffier Clothing (women’s clothing and accessories), and Arists at Gulf Place (local art).
