Once your cross over the Alabama state line, past the infamous Flora-Bama Lounge, you find your self among the slow rolling sand dunes of Perdido Key. This small stretch of the northwest Florida landscape captures the imagination with roughly 16 miles of pure white sand, with nearly 60% of that real estate being recognized as federal or state park land. This protected area of the panhandle makes for an ideal vacation or second home destination, with one of the most beautiful beach landscapes in the United States.
Perdido Key's literal translation is "Lost Key," appropriately named by the Spanish who discovered the area in 1693 and the name given to one of the top 5 golf courses in the state, the Lost Key Golf Club. Lost Key is a signature course, redesigned by Arnold Palmer in 2006 and features 18 holes of championship caliber golf. The course was the first in the world to be certified as an Audubon International Silver Signature Sanctuary, dedicated to preserving the natural resources and beauty of the area.
Perdido Key real estate offers the finest in waterfront living and some of the more exquisite gulf front condominium complexes on the gulf coast. I have found the unit amenities to be far superior, from the custom trim and tile work to the lavishness of the fixtures and floor plans. When luxury condo buyers travel to the gulf coast, looking for the ideal combination of upscale living and panoramic gulf views, Perdido Key is often their final destination.
