Closing on December 11, 2015 for $7,528,750 was 768 Blue Mountain Road. The gulf front home in Blue Mountain Beach, represented by Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty, commanded the high sale price of 2016, easing by two sales taking place earlier in the year over the $7 million mark in Seagrove Beach.
The sale of 768 Blue Mountain Road breaks a five-year long trend of the east end of 30A, where the area’s new urbanism communities are concentrated, hosting the scenic highway’s high sale price. The last high sale to take place on the more relaxed west end of 30A was of another gulf front home in Blue Mountain Beach, located just west of 768 Blue Mountain Road, also represented by Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty.
The three homes selling over the $7 million mark in 2015 were built within the last five years, and ranged in size from just under 4,300 square feet, to just shy of 8,000 square feet found under roof at 768 Blue Mountain Road. With 16 more feet of waterfront than the homes found in Seagrove, 768 Blue Mountain Road featured an all-inclusive outdoor space boasting a sought after gulf front pool with hot tub, fire pit, and summer kitchen surrounded by 500 square feet of terrace. With the highest elevation along the entire Gulf of Mexico rim nearby, 768 Blue Mountain Road exploited its high elevation with waterfront balconies on its elevator-accessible second, third, and fourth floors amounting to over 2,000 square feet of living space. Further setting the home apart was its FORTIFIED… for Safer Living® certified construction, shielded by a protective sea wall adding still more peace of mind.
