Old Florida Beach

Gated, Private, & Waterfront in Santa Rosa Beach

Posted on 3/26/2020

Would you like to experience the golden Americana inspired era of yesteryear for the creation of fun, magical memories with family and friends today? Now you can do so at the aptly named Old Florida Beach community in Santa Rosa Beach off Scenic 30A in South Walton. This exclusively gated development is nestled beside the glowing jewel-toned waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It is adorned with towering Royal Palms and bordered by charming white picket fences. This neighborhood also has a community pool for freshwater entertainment and a dock for fishing, paddle boarding, or kayaking on Draper Lake. These precious treasured coastal dune lakes are extremely rare and found in very places around the world. Their magical mixture of salt and freshwater supports a vast abundance of wildlife.

Even though you'll feel like you're in a wonderful world of your own, this fantastic location is close to restaurants, beach bars, fashion boutiques, outdoor concerts, and seasonal festivals hosted at the Santa Rosa Beach village center of Gulf Place. It is also just minutes away from other dreamy coastal villages along this scenic route, including places like Grayton Beach, WaterColor, and Seaside.
