In the next few weeks we’ll be doing our own little take on that 80’s show Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. (Wikipedia tells me it actually ran until 1995. Did you realize it ran well into the 90's? I sure didn't.) We’ll be blogging about some of the most expensive homes currently for sale along the Emerald Coast! So read the next few posts in the voice of Robin Leach…Today, we’re looking at the Top 5 most expensive homes currently for sale in Fort Walton Beach (as of April 12, 2017). Interestingly, not one of them is on the beach. Take a look:

 

# 5 903 Santa Rosa Boulevard – Okaloosa Island, $1,250,000

This is one of my favorites. It has gorgeous views of the Santa Rosa Sound! You can sit on your patio off the enormous master suite and watch the boats go by. Or you can hop in your own boat and take off from  your dock with a boat lift that can handle up to 16,000 lbs! 903 Santa Rosa Boulevard also has one of the biggest pools on Okaloosa Island.

 

 

# 414 Sleepy Hollow Road – Mary Esther, $1,450,000

This is what nearly one and a half million dollars gets you in Mary Esther. Over 7,000 square feet! The views of the Santa Rosa Sound are phenomenal. My personal favorite little touch is the black and white tile in the foyer.

 

 

# 3124 SW Miracle Strip Parkway – Fort Walton Beach, $1,550,000


One of three penthouse units at Presidio Yacht Club. On the 16th floor with 12 foot ceilings, you can bet your views from this unit are spectacular!

 

 

# 23 Garniers Post Road – Garniers Bayou, $1,699,000


I am about 95% certain I saw this house on Airbnb one time. I went back to that site to try to rent Fort Walton Beach’s 2nd most expensive home, but I couldn’t find it again. Oh well.. Anyway, this home is pretty amazing. It sits on its own little peninsula. 4 bedrooms and amazing views from all of them.

 

Drumroll…..

# 1471 W. Miracle Strip Parkway – Mary Esther,  $2,999,000

There aren’t too many pictures to peruse on this listing. The sellers had an estate sale a few months ago, and I was able to get a peek inside. It was AMAZING!! It was like stepping back in time. The home was built in 1926. Exposed wood throughout and incredible views of the sound. I did snag a pretty cool Billy Bowlegs poster at that sale. It had been rolled up in its shipping tube since it was ordered in 1978 from the original artist.
