Seagrove Beach Real Estate and Seagrove Beach Homes for Sale
Regarded as one of the first beach communities in the South Walton area, Seagrove Beach was named for the thick groves of windswept trees surrounding it, and has withstood the test of time by preserving its lush green canopy of trees through the years. Hickory, holly, magnolia, oak, and pine trees now line most of its streets.
It is adjacent to Seaside and WaterSound Beach, and near two of the coastal dune lakes that are a prominent feature in this portion of the Florida Emerald Coast. Seagrove’s quaintness and natural beauty have attracted many residents and visitors who prefer affordable, laidback beach living that also offers a host of amenities and recreational activities.
A diverse selection of homes awaits you in Seagrove, including a pleasant mix of older beach homes and newer homes comprised of:
- Cottage-style houses
- Luxury homes
Most homes are on heavily wooded lots that give a sense of privacy and seclusion.
Homes on the Gulf front provide superb views of the Gulf of Mexico and direct access to the sugary-white beaches.
Homes surrounding Eastern Lake have private boat slips.
Areas of Interest
- Coastal dune lakes – Considered rare bodies of water because they are only found in a few places around the world. Deer Lake offers fishing, bird watching, and hiking, including a wider beachfront area with boardwalk access, while Eastern Lake is the larger of the two at around 66 acres, and is a known fishing spot for fresh and salt-water species like barracuda, bass, flounder, mutton snapper, red fish and sunfish. Eastern Lake also offers picnic grounds, plus water activities like kayaking, canoeing, and paddle boarding.
- Deer Lake State Park– Encompasses 1,920 acres of distinct natural communities that include beach dunes, mesic flatwoods, sandhills, basin swamps, blackwater stream, estuarine tidal creek, and the coastal dune lake that shares its name. Golden asters, scrub oaks, southern magnolias, and woody goldenrod can be found here, as well as rare plants such as gulf coast lupine, pitcher plants, and spoonflower. Birdwatchers and wildlife observers will see many species of migratory birds and butterflies that reside within the park. A boardwalk across the dunes provides easy access to the beach where visitors can picnic, swim, and fish.
