30A Real Estate: Rosemary Beach Real Estate – Rosemary Beach Homes for Sale
Channeling Old World elegance with good old Southern hospitality, Rosemary Beach is another beautiful master-planned community in Walton County.
The easternmost of the communities straddling Scenic Highway 30A, Rosemary Beach was originally developed on property that was part of Inlet Beach. Like many of its neighboring communities, it’s been designed with New Urbanism principles in mind.
Named after the wild rosemary that abounds in the area, this tight-knit community is built on a 107-acre development. It combines the architectural style of a traditional European village and the quaint charms of historic Southern resort towns. The result is a distinctive look that meshes well with the landscape.
Following the principles of New Urbanism, it features a well-designed network of brick-covered streets, boardwalks and pathways that are easily navigated on foot or on a bike. One can stroll through the village in less than an hour.
Rosemary Beach, with its sugar-white sandy beach and pristine Gulf waters draws many a visitor throughout the year and is the town’s main attraction. But aside from that there is its Town Center. The town center is the community’s lifestyle and retail district. It contains a park, with a fountain and benches for promenaders; boutiques and restaurants; bookstores and specialty stores. There are playgrounds for young children, as well as tennis courts for the adults. The town center is also a popular venue for weddings.
The Pearl, a luxury boutique hotel located at the end of Main Street, also houses the Hemingway-inspired Havana Beach restaurant.
For those who would like to join this community, there are grand homes, townhouses and condos up for grabs. All the dwellings are built to take advantage of the coastal atmosphere, with wide porches and gated courtyards. Boardwalks lead residents directly to the beach. Amenities include swimming pools, parks and fitness centers.
