For anyone who has ever wanted to own their own private island, Realtor® Jonathan Jeswald of World Impact Real Estate has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The island of South Walton is now on the market for the first time in 80 years.
“This is one of the last undeveloped private islands to exist in the Florida panhandle,” said Jeswald.
For fans of the popular HGTV series “Island Hunters,” at $2.5 million South Walton Island offers 53 acres of exclusive privacy off the coast of Florida on Choctawhatchee Bay. Uninhabited and untouched by man, the island is just minutes away from Florida’s Emerald Coast of sun-warmed waters, white sand beaches, and no passport is needed to access the tropical paradise.
The island contains stately wooded forests grassland vistas, and a myriad of wildlife. Zoned for residential development, the island’s location makes it ideal for the installation of energy efficient solar power. Owners also have the option of having traditional types of utilities installed if they choose.
South Walton Island also contains a designated recreational development area. The island can be transformed into income producing property, a primary residence or a private getaway. A sheltered atoll provides a protected area where bungalows can be built for friends, family or tourists.
An inter-coastal waterway allows easy access for larger vessels to transport guests to the island and the opportunity to establish shuttle runs. Water sports is one of the area’s primary attractions and guests are just minutes away from access to water skis, small water craft of all types, and other water-related venues like the famous Emerald Coast Poker Run
Individuals can shuttle over to the mainland’s Emerald Coast for fine dining featuring international cuisine, dance the night away, see a movie, or take in one of the numerous theatre presentations in South Walton. A wide variety of music concerts are held regularly. Some of the most well-known golf courses are available and guests can go zip lining or attend one of the many museums and cultural centers.
The Emerald Coast was named one of the Top 10 places in the U.S. to visit by ABC’s “Good Morning America” and USA Today rated the area’s beaches the best in the U.S.
There’s also a high probability of a celebrity sighting. The film “The Truman Show,” starring Jim Carey, was filmed on Seaside Beach along the Emerald Coast and the area has become a playground for the wealthy, famous and well-connected. A wide variety of celebrities maintain homes in the area or visit regularly, including Emeril Lagasse Brittany Spears, and Tim McGraw and Luke Bryan, along with Sandra Bullock, Courtney Cox and Vince Vaughn.
