If bay-front property is your desire, Wendy Anderson, editing manager at Somers & Company, says there are prime estates in the Somers portfolio of exclusive properties.

A prime example is 456 Captains Circle , a luxurious 5,132-square foot estate in Regatta Bay . This 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home is listed at $2,995,000. "It's an elegant showpiece that's great for entertaining," Anderson said of the home that features ICF (Insulating Concrete Form) construction, which is energy efficient and of significant strength and quality.

Tucked inside the gates of Kelly Plantation lies a "Yachtsman's Paradise ," a 5-bedroom, 5.2-bathroom estate with three deepwater boat slips. The 6,887-square-foot masterpiece is listed at $3,395,000 and features a 400-gallon aquarium, gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, and three master suites.

Another example, situated atop a bluff at 777 Bayou Drive , is the famed Clary Mansion , Destin's "most historic and grand estate" according to Somers.  This graceful home encompasses 8,500 square feet and boasts 5 private bedroom retreats and 5 bathrooms. No expense was spared when this historic estate was developed by Roger and Ella Clary.

Walton County 's coastal dune lakes offer buyers a rare opportunity to own property along these rare bodies of water that occur in only three other places around the world. "It's just so picturesque," Somers’ Marketing Director, Kate Kelley, told The Sun. "Can you imagine kayaking or paddle-boarding across the coastal dune lakes?"

Nestled on Draper Lake , 81 Coquina Place is ideal for buyers who desire the relaxed, outdoorsy 30A lifestyle but still yearn for luxury. With 6 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, this immaculate 5,507-square-foot estate is a host’s dream. This three-floor estate is listed at $2,495,000.

Somers & Company also has listed a breathtaking 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 2,987-square-foot estate on Eastern Lake at 82 Lake Pointe Drive ($1,495,000), as well as a pristine 3,480-square foot, 4-bedroom 4.5-bathroom estate at 185 Loon Lake Drive on Stallworth Lake ($999,000), both of which boast prime frontage on the ecological wonders of South Walton’s coastal dune lakes.
