Nestled within 900-acres of lush preserve, active wildlife and pristine walking trails lies one of Destin's most coveted guarded and gated communities — Kelly Plantation.

"To have that expanse of green space in the heart of Destin is a phenomenal asset to Destin and the owners of Kelly Plantation," said Real Estate Broker John Paul Somers, of Somers & Company.

If you are yearning to live the Destin lifestyle to the fullest, Somers, who also resides in the community, suggests that homebuyers look no further than Kelly Plantation. Whether strolling through natural parks, practicing your backhand on the tennis court or putting on a Fred Couples championship golf course, Kelly Plantation doesn't disappoint. Of course, a quick stroll to the beach and the Gulf of Mexico helps solidify Kelly Plantation as the perfect homestead.

When it’s time to relax after a long day, homeowners can take full advantage of the community pool, hook a big redfish with the fishing club, satisfy their green thumb as part of the garden club, or stay in shape at the fitness center. Homeowners are encouraged to be part of the community in Kelly Plantation, so step outside and make a new friend.

Pete Mittleman and his wife currently have their four-bed and four-bath home at 201 Mattie's Way in Kelly Plantation on the market, and he says it's the perfect place to raise a family.

"It's fabulous, and secluded," he told The Log. "All of the houses are carefully situated to blend in perfectly with the natural surroundings, which makes this a wonderful place to live."

"It has the best golf and tennis in the area," he added. "It's homes, not just houses."
