Top 10 Reasons to Live in a Beachfront Home

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Destin Real Estate

A beachfront home on the Gulf, or anywhere for that matter, really is ALL it's made out to be. There's something about looking out over that expansive blue space that that just makes you feel good. Now imagine waking up to that view every day, and falling asleep to the rhythmic sound of the waves lapping against the shore. Living by the ocean is a lifestyle like no other.

Science has proven time and again that beachfront living offers health benefits, for your body and soul. The convenience factor is a given. There's no packing up the car for spending a day by the shore. The beach is there in all its majesty, just waiting for you, day after day.

While there are plenty of reasons for choosing a waterfront lifestyle, view our top 10 most compelling reasons

Gulf Front Homes on the Emerald Coast

For those under the belief that beachfront homes are all sprawling mansions, that's not always the case. It can be costly, to be sure, but a Gulf front home in Destin and the surrounding 30A is much more attainable then you might realize.

At the time of this writing there were 49 active listings ranging in price from $25,000,000 to $1,449,000. Sizes range from 9,051 to 1,264 square feet. A beachfront house is really for those who desire a waterfront lifestyle in a natural, often peaceful setting. That being said, some of the most luxurious and opulent homes on the Emerald Coast, are indeed gulf front.
