Living along the beautiful Gulf Coast is a dream come true for many residents in this area. This area attracts people seeking a warmer climate without the hot, humid weather of South Florida. With several military bases located along the coast from Panama City to Pensacola, the area has a large military population in addition to the retirees, second home owners and vacation investment owners. Property values range from the low two hundred thousands to eight or nine million.
An example of a community located on the coast is Rosemary Beach.
Rosemary Beach, located along the two-lane 30A, is described by Nanci Theoret “a New Urbanist community where residents design their signature scent at Pish Posh Patchouli’s; linger over seafood and a Pearl pomegranate martini infused with a white-lavender-citrus teabag at the all-new Restaurant Paradis; or even check out the Aveda spa. Nothing’s more than a five-minute walk, including the beach, so traveling by bicycle or on foot is most preferred.
Rosemary Beach also benefits from its prime location. Walton County’s zoning regulations prevent buildings in excess of 50 feet or four stories along its 18-mile sweep of Gulf, keeping the focus on the water. The community offers a dozen styles of homes—from single-floor, apartment-like flats above businesses in the town square to the sprawling beachfront estates, many with quaint 400- to 1,000-square-foot detached carriage homes that are often placed on the rental program. No two homes in Rosemary Beach are alike, and many feature Dutch and West Indies-inspired architecture”.
