FOR THOSE SEEKING THE ULTIMATE PRIVATE ESTATE PROPERTY.. WELCOME TO "IN THE OAKS"!From the moment you drive thru the rustic stone columns and stately entry gates, meander the half-mile driveway taking youthru undisturbed woodlands thick with pines, bay leaf, magnolia and palmettos,and finally reach the home site surrounded with moss-covered, ancient200 year old mighty oaks, which provide a canopy of shade likened to a rainForest. You know that there is no property remaining today of this size and beauty on the Choctawhatchee Bay in south Walton County.A dock with a boat house is located on the bay, and on the canal side, there is also a dock off of the Carriage house 29+ acres; the 600+ feet of Bay waterfront to the north, and 1500 feet of Clay's Bayou and Clay's Creek to the west, continue to be home to pods of dolphin, schools of mullet, bream, shrimp and eagles. Everywhere you look is an incredibly gorgeous vista. Total privacy and peace has been assured with all 29+ acres fenced, no utilities are above ground, and no other homes are visible. Noise, traffic, and crowds of tourists are unable to bother you. When the gate closes , your private estate is your refuge- with only peace and tranquility. The beautiful beaches are only 3 miles away. The European styled manor home is one of the most unique and charming designs both inside and out. Designed by the popular architect, Dennis Lehmann of Banner Elk, NC and Pensacola, Fl. Intimate living areas, chock full of design amenities contribute to the uniqueness. But for those that might prefer a more grandiose living space, architectural renderings are available depicting an addition with a massive great room, fireplace, and two additional balconied bedrooms and baths above. But the ultimate endeavor would be to build your own dream home on the adjacent cleared land directly in the middle of the 600'+ bay front, retaining the unique exterior European design, while adding large grandiose rooms throughout the interior. What could be more satisfying than creating your own new home and leaving the existing home as a "guest cottage" thus achieving the ultimate estate. Your guests would be quite impressed while staying in the "guest cottage" with every need accommodated. And with 29+ acres (17 acres of usable uplands), you can create the lifestyle of your dreams by adding an Olympic size pool with pavilion, tennis courts, horse stables with indoor riding ring, helicopter pad (approved by Walton County), mini-golf course, family cottages, and much more. There is even the opportunity for a permanent deep water mooring for the largest yacht just 100 yards offshore. And with two docks, boating opportunities are endless including fishing, crabbing, sailing, cruising or yolo boarding. The carriage house architecture mirrors the main manor home, and includes a two car garage, laundry room, storage and work area, plus a full apartment above with a private stairwell. The apartment includes a queen size bedroom, two small single bed alcove bedrooms,full bath, full kitchen, and living/dining area, plus screened porch overlooking Clays Bayou. The carriage house is very conducive for a full time grounds and security manager, personal chef, private guest, or mother-in-law quarters. The manor home is entered thru a stone walled, landscaped courtyard including a stone tower,designed especially for effect. The double entrance doors are of antique Cyprus with custom stain glass panels. Upon entering the foyer, the view extends directly thru the patio French doors all the way to the Bay. Floors are Turkish travertine throughout the first floor except for oak hardwood and custom carpets in the living area.... ***Buyer is responsible for personally verifying details about this property.
