Gulf Front Privacy - Iconic property - First time offered for sale - Nestled in the coveted neighborhood of Beach Highland, where turnover is rare and so are the crowds, you will find this peaceful property approximately 26' above sea level with 100' of private beach frontage. The home enjoys almost 9,000 sq. ft. under roof (6,545 sq. ft. heated/cooled sq. ft. & 2,452 porches). The main home has five bedrooms, five full baths, and one half bath. The carriage house has three bedrooms, three full baths, and a bunk room. Additionally, there is a resort-style pool and a hot tub, all in a very private coastal setting. Designed by renowned architect Matthew Savoie, 23 Highland Ave is a captivating residence to enjoy for generations. Enter the private, gated paradise among lush, mature trees and vegetation. The main house features a large open living area and four Gulf-front bedrooms, including a spectacular master retreat. The master includes a large bathroom, two walk-in closets, a coffee bar, a fireplace, a living area, and access to the workout bonus space. A fifth bedroom includes four built-in full bunk beds. A warm, peaceful, grand entry with twelve-foot ceilings naturally leads you to the Gulf, where some of the most breathtaking porches, decks, and views on Scenic Hwy 30A reside. Well-appointed with attention to detail throughout, this home takes full advantage of 100 feet presiding over the white sand beach and spectacular water of the Emerald Coast. On the upper level of the carriage house, there are two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a spacious family room, a kitchenette, laundry, and porches with Gulf, pool, and courtyard views. The lower level in the carriage house features a living room, kitchenette, laundry, bedroom, bunkroom, and garage. The main house and guest quarters layout are ideal for maintaining space and privacy for a large gathering at the beach. The oasis pool and separate hot tub are very generous in size and keenly positioned for privacy in the abundant and mature landscaping while offering a gulf-front presence. World-class surf fishing is just steps away from the front door, or take a stroll down the beach to enjoy Stallworth Lake and miles of the tranquil beauty of Topsail Park Preserve. Superior construction, high elevation, a seawall, 100' on the Gulf, and property ownership to the mean high water line are features that will catch the eye and check the boxes for the most discerning of buyers. A new roof was installed in October 2022. The area is served by Panama City Beach & Fort Walton/Destin airports with commercial service and FBO facilities.
