Located on the shores of Choctawhatchee Bay, it is known for its premier golf course and family-friendly environment and has become a top choice among those looking to be part of a secluded, upscale community in a lush tropical setting. Whether you’re interested in a golf course estate, a lavish condominium, or an ideally placed site where you can build your dream home, you are sure to find the perfect property here.
Kelly Plantation traces its roots to the early 1930s, which was when Coleman and Mattie Kelly turned what was previously undeveloped forestland into their family homestead. The Kellys became one of Destin’s most prominent founding families and were instrumental in placing the area on the map in terms of fishing, tourism, and the arts. The land where Kelly Plantation now stands was a turpentine farm for several years before it was developed into the community that we know today.
The community is known for its wide selection of single-family homes, home sites, and condominiums that are low maintenance and within easy access of the fairways. All homes have been strategically oriented to be only a short walk’s away from the main golf club and the homeowner’s club. The entire community is nestled inside serene enclaves, surrounded by verdant natural foliage and a variety of properties are also situated close to a freshwater lake.
