Overview: Beautiful and well-maintained 2,005 sq. ft, 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath home in the planned community of Bluewater Bay, conveniently adjacent to the beaches and shopping malls of Destin, and a short commute from Eglin and Hurlburt Air Force bases and the Army’s 7th Special Operation Forces at Duke Field. Award winning educational facilities are close-by and range from a neighborhood elementary school, to collegiate high school, to nearby Northwest Florida State College.

The home is a high efficiency, low-upkeep, Florida-style ‘open-format’ design, with many value-added post-construction features. It is nestled amongst live oaks and magnolias, with an extensive network of walking and cycling paths. It enjoys an expansive view of golf course and lake from the screened lanai and separate barbecue patio, and is one of several homes in a small and neighborly home owners’ association which provides yard care and other services. The house is bright and cheerful, and has been diligently updated since its construction in 2000. Shopping and restaurants as well as medical services are five to ten minutes away in Merchants Walk Center or in Niceville.

Floorplan: A tiled entry exhibits bright, clerestory-lit great room with cathedral-ceiling and gas log fireplace. Great room opens to large dining room, kitchen and breakfast room – all with beautiful laminated wood and coordinated tile floor. Large dining room features coffered ceiling. Door and windows open to screened and tiled lanai and grilling patio. There is a dramatic view facing east of golf course and lake. Large master bedroom opens into bathroom with double vanities, shower and spa. Bathroom opens into huge master closet. On opposite side of house are two large bedrooms with large closets and built-in bookcases, as well as a generous-sized "Jack and Jill" (shared) bathroom. A large kitchen shares the cathedral ceiling, and has been upgraded with granite countertops, refrigerator and smooth-top oven with microwave oven above. Kitchen opens into bright and cheerful breakfast room.

The utility room features a large work station/hobby desk, generous overhead cabinets, a second large pantry, and washer and dryer. The utility room opens into an oversize garage with two large storage closets and a huge workbench. The two-car garage is fully finished, with painted walls and an easy-clean, epoxied floor. A 15’ x 11’ floored attic space is accessed through the garage.

The Neighborhood: Balmoral (also known as Villas of St. Andrews) is a quiet family neighborhood of 29 homes in award-winning Bluewater Bay. It is situated in a cul-de-sac, hence no through-traffic. The neighborhood is a pleasant, compact, tree shaded community nestled between three small spring-fed lakes. Association responsibilities include yard upkeep, irrigation, fertilization, and interior and exterior pest control, making Balmoral uniquely worry-free when owners are away. Golf resort, neighborhood restaurant and doctors’ clinic are a conveniently close-by.

Bluewater Bay is a very walkable area with many delightful trails. Nearby Merchants Walk shopping center provides most daily necessities, with grocery stores, restaurants, banks, fitness center, hardware store, medical clinics and churches. It is five minutes away by car or golf cart. Community amenities include swimming pools, tennis center, golf courses, marina with launch and repair facilities, and boat and RV storage facilities. The Bluewater Bay area adjoins Choctawhatchee Bay with sailing, fishing, and access by boat to the Gulf of Mexico.

A Strategic Location: Eglin AFB, featuring a large commissary and exchange, a hospital and other resources is fifteen minutes away. Hurlburt and Duke Fields, and the 7th Special Forces Group are somewhat further. Highly-rated Twin Cities Hospital is in nearby Niceville, and Sacred Heart Hospital is across the Mid-Bay Bridge in Destin. Bluewater Bay Elementary School is a few minutes away, and Ruckel Middle School is ten minutes distant in Niceville, as is highly-rated Niceville High School. Northwest Florida State College, with several associate and four-year BA programs, as well as a select Collegiate High School, is also in Niceville. It comprises one of the area’s major cultural venues, with several musical performances and art functions throughout the year. Destin’s renowned white sand beaches, fine restaurants and shopping mall are just across the Mid-Bay Bridge.
