Only three homes offering over half an acre on the Gulf of Mexico have traded hands in the last year along Scenic Highway 30A. Among them is 143 San Roy Road in Seagrove Beach. The .64 acre lot on which the home was built stretches over 400 feet from the road to its 63 feet of waterfront along the mean high water line. Listed with Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty agents Kim and Keen Polakoff, the home sold for $2,450,000.
Situated between South Walton’s historic coastal dune lake and the turquoise waters of the gulf, 143 San Roy Road captures the essence of private island living without leaving the mainland. Only five lots east of Eastern Lake’s meandering outflow into the gulf, the beach is especially tranquil and rarely crowded. Rarer still are gulf front homes with private pools, and this home has quite a large one as well as abundant parking which contributes to its success as a vacation rental.
About Seagrove Beach
Laid-back but decidedly upmarket, Seagrove Beach boasts chic boutiques and fine casual dining to complement the unspoiled natural beauty of the area. There are two rare coastal dune lakes nearby, Deer Lake and Eastern Lake, which are a haven for wildlife. Hiking and biking trails crisscross Deer Lake State Park. A boardwalk spans the dunes, giving access to the sugar-white sands and glittering gulf waters that are perfect for sunbathing, fishing, and swimming.
