903 Santa Rosa Blvd, Fort Walton Beach

by Jim Gilliland

Our last post was about how great the weather is here in May. The beautiful weather and the abundance of outdoor activities here along the Gulf Coast leads one to just want to be outside. In that vein, our next few posts are going to focus on some of our waterfront listings. Boating, fishing, jet-skiing, swimming…these are just a few of the activities these waterfront properties have to offer.

 The first one we want to look at is 903 Santa Rosa Boulevard. This 5300 square foot estate has 82 feet of waterfrontage along the Santa Rosa Sound! There’s a dock with a boat-lift that can handle boats up to 8 tons. You can watch the boats go by in the Intracoastal Waterway while floating in your sparkling 25’x50’ in-ground pool. There’s fantastic fishing in the Sound. From time to time, you can even spot the current owner spear-fishing around the dock. The beach is just across the street. With 3 master suites to retreat to after a long day on the water, this home is all you could ever want!

Intracoastal or Intercoastal?

by Jim Gilliland

One question comes up around here a lot, especially when we’re describing waterfront property  – Is it Intercoastal or Intracoastal waterway? The correct name is actually IntRAcoastal Waterway.  The Intracoastal Waterway is a network of canals, inlets, bays, and rivers that runs from Norfolk, VA down to the Florida Keys, and along the Gulf of Mexico to Brownsville, TX. The plans for the Intracoastal Waterway go back to 1808, when Treasury Secretary Albert Gallatin proposed a system of canals that would link Boston Harbor to the harbor in Brownsville. Congress rejected that plan, but over the next few decades, the Corp of Engineers began dredging a series of canals along the US Coast.

The Gulf Intracoastal Waterway is 1,100 miles from St. Marks, FL to Brownsville, TX.
