Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty announces multi million-dollar luxury Gulf-front residential development 

SANTA ROSA BEACH, FLA., (May 14, 2015) – Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty announces their newest luxury Gulf-front residential development, The Bluffs at Sandy Shores. Nestled on 180 feet of Gulf-front property atop a 28-foot bluff, the three luxurious estate homes will each boast approximately 10,000 to over 12,000 square feet of living and outdoor space as well as individual private beach accesses down the bluffs to a private beach.  The first home will begin construction in June and will be one of 30A’s most exquisite residences built to date.

The Bluffs at Sandy Shores will be located within the gates of the Sandy Shores community on 30A between Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach. With concrete construction, the immaculate architecture and state-of-the-art design features clean lines and open floor plans with breathtaking views atop one of the highest bluffs on 30A.

Views of the Gulf of Mexico are an immediate visual reward upon entry of each of the homes. The three and four story homes will feature 10 and 12-foot ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, wet bars, elevators and stunning open core staircases. Expansive 14-foot deep covered porches boast fire elements and summer kitchens for entertaining and glass railings for uninterrupted views.  Each home showcases a Gulf-front full size pool, infinity edge hot tub, privacy wall and dedicated storage for beach and pool equipment. The homes also offer two master suites,  a private morning bar, and porches offering panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico. In addition, each home features an 800 square-foot carriage house with one bedroom, one bathroom and a mini-kitchen overlooking the private courtyard with Gulf views.

Each home will have a privacy gate for additional exclusivity and an expansive parking court with a multiple car garage, and the ability to accommodate three to four additional large vehicles. Private courtyards with hammocks and fountains shaded by leafy palm trees will create an elaborate entryway to each home. The development was originally platted for six homes, but developers restructured the plat to feature only three significantly larger luxury estate homes.

Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty invites the community to attend the Official Launch Party of the Bluffs at Sandy Shores on Thursday, June 4, 2015, from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m. The event will take place at Scenic Sotheby’s new office in 30Avenue, located at 12805 US Highway 98 East, just north of Rosemary Beach.  Attendees will enjoy live music by Matt Lyons, light hors d’oeuvres and cocktails by Cuvee 30A, Shades, Signature Catering 30A, Coastal Wine and Spirits, 850 Chaste, and Idyll Hounds Brewing Company. Guests will have the opportunity to view renderings, color palettes, material and finish samples, and tour the site. The event is complimentary to attend and open to the public.
