The home enjoys almost 9,000 sq. ft. under roof (6,545 sq. ft. heated/cooled sq. ft. & 2,452 porches), eight bedrooms plus a bunk room, 8 full baths, two half baths, 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, coffee bar, fireplace, living area, and access to the workout bonus space. A fifth bedroom includes four built-in full bunk beds. A warm and 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, kitchenette, laundry, and porches with Gulf, pool, and courtyard views.
