'Destin’s Preserve': Kelly Plantation offers the true Destin lifestyle

Published: Thursday, June 27, 2013 at 05:35 PM.

The 3,292-square foot home has a pool and spa, heated floors, a glass fireplace and is on the market for $749,900. The home, built in 2003, is situated abutting a nature preserve and Mittleman says it's "very comfortable."

When Jim Fogleman and his wife were looking to buy a house in Destin, he narrowed his search to Kelly Plantation, Regatta Bay and Sandestin. He ultimately chose Kelly due to its "stability" and the fact that residents were permanent and less transient.

“We call it our little oasis, or paradise,” he said. “It’s so convenient for us to go shopping, out to eat for dinner, to the store or Home Depot. How much more convenient could you have it?”

Situated on an estate-sized lot at 6290 Augusta Cove, Fogleman’s home has been meticulously maintained and boasts lush landscaping and faces the 13th fairway. The Ben Porter built home features a large kitchen, stone sinks, custom cabinetry, a double oven and granite countertops.

This five-bedroom, four-bathroom home is two stories, 4,109 square feet and is on the market for $975,000.

“This is a whole different atmosphere and lifestyle,” Fogleman said. “You definitely wouldn’t find something like this in New York .”
