This exceptional villa is truly one-of-a-kind! Ocean Blue is located in Caribe, which happens to be one of the most prestigious gated residential communities in Destin’s Miramar Beach. This premier neighborhood is tucked away in a wonderful world of its own. Amazing amenities include lushly landscaped grounds for a distinctly tropical look, tennis courts, a lovely lake, classic fountains, a private sugar white beach and two sparkling community pools. One of these pools is just a stone’s throw away from this castle-like villa but you don’t even have to go that far to take a refreshing dip since this home has a massive pool of its own.
This regal residence has five bedrooms with multiple berths to accommodate its fortunate guests. Rich abundant decorative arts, comfortable antique furnishings and elaborate embellishments provide a magnificent old world ambiance. You will feel like you are living in a special world away, maybe along the coast in Italy or France. However in this case you are just steps from the shimmering sugary shoreline that overlooks the emerald hued waters of the glittering gulf here in Northwest Florida.
Ocean Blue’s Great Room defines rustic elegance with a soaring ceiling that is richly beamed. Multiple sets of double French doors provide plenty of light, access and views of the private pool courtyard that has flutes of water that splash down into the water beside it. The sense of serene privacy on the stone patio beside the pool will tempt you to spend a lot of time here. A formal seating area faces a fireplace at one end of the Great Room while an elegant dining table with six handsome throne-like chairs sits centered beneath a suspended vintage candled chandelier. The open Gourmet Kitchen beside it has a charming country estate look but features gleaming stainless steel appliances.
A hallway with an oriental rug provides entry to the richly decorated Master Bedroom Suite on the main level with a king size bed, a high beamed ceiling and private bath. The luxurious bath features a large walk-in double shower that is adorned with walls of black marble with white veining, which is quite striking. Each of the Guest Bedrooms is individually decorated and most have access to a full bath en suite. Two of them have queen size beds, one has twins and the fourth has a queen. What they all have in common is the kind of look and country comfort you might find if you were visiting a European estate.
This hidden treasure is located in the heart of Miramar Beach, minutes away from popular beachfront restaurants along Scenic Gulf Drive. Golf and tennis can be played at Seascape Resort where Ocean Reef guests receive special discounts. Grocery stores, wine outlets and Silver Sands Premium Outlets are also close by. Other fine restaurants, lively bars, a state of the art multiplex theater and upscale boutiques are also nearby on Grand Boulevard as well as the charming Village of Baytowne Wharf in Sandestin. Family amusements, fireworks, fun festivals and free concerts occur throughout the season.
