Destin Bayfront Luxury

Join us in congratulating the lucky family who has just purchased the home at 458-A Bayshore Drive in Destin. Read on to find out why a bayfront home may just be the lifestyle you're looking for.

Backyard at 458 Bayshore Drive

What a perfect way to enjoy the Destin boating lifestyle. With 60 ft of waterfront on the Choctawhatchee, this beautiful home includes a dock with TWO Boat Slips, one is covered for extra protection from mother nature. Both have lifts and you’ll find a brand new Everglades 243 on one of the racks. There aren’t many quality Destin Bayfront homes that come close to this awesome property.

This Mediterranean inspired home has four bedrooms, a living room, den, and modern kitchen. The heated swimming pool has amazing bay views, a screened enclosure, outdoor kitchen, and is perfect for entertaining or relaxing after a day on the water.

Finished in 2003, and featuring over 3300 sf, the layout is phenomenal. The downstairs master is off the living room and there is a large den upstairs that could easily be used as a media room. Most of the bedrooms also have nooks or built-ins making it easy to find a good space for a desk or home office.

Bayfront Homes Aren't Just for Boaters

Boat Slip at 458 Bayshore DriveDestin Bayfront homes suit the needs of many buyers. Popular activities and uses include:

  1. Incredible Views - The Choctawhatchee Bay is over five miles wide so the views are expansive and unobstructed.
  2. Boating Activities - The water along the shore of the bay is not deep but will still accommodate shallow draft boats. Most bayfront owners enjoy numerous pleasure boating activities including evening cruises, taking their boat to dinner, spending a day at crab island or anchoring away from the crowds.
  3. Fishing - Whether its fishing from your own private dock, deep dropping for reds at the bridges, or using topwaters for trout in the flats, bayfront owners enjoy year around fishing.

The Choctawhatchee Bay is 30 miles of pure inland fun and averages 4-6 miles in width.  Some of the best fishing in the area can be found on the East end where Black Creek and the Choctawhatchee river run in or go west and find your own island and spend the afternoon.

Crab Island, a sunken sand-bar in 2-4 ft of water is a very popular destination for pleasure boaters and tourist. There are vendors selling hot dogs, peanuts, pizza, and ice cream as well as slides, and obstacle courses for the kids. The water is absolutely stunning, especially when the tide is coming in and the sun is shining brightly.

The Choctawhatchee Bay is also full of sea life including dolphins, trout, redfish, blue crabs, shrimp, sharks, and oysters. Several restaurants, including Lulu's at Legendary Marina, offer boat dockage.
