SEAGROVE – Beach vacations on the Emerald Coast have long been a favorite of families throughout the southeastern United States.  Long days on the beach and evenings spent with family and friends have created lasting memories that span generations.

 Today, NatureWalk at Seagrove is noticing a change in tradition with more and more families choosing to become homeowners rather than remain visitors.

As the national real estate market continues to rebound, the Seaside/WaterColor area is also experiencing an upswing. At NatureWalk in particular, homeowners are taking advantage of an unprecedented opportunity to own a spacious single-family residence with charming coastal architecture at prices beginning in the $450Ks. Ideally located near Seagrove Beach and the downtown areas of Seaside and WaterColor, the private community offers an unmatched combination of lifestyle and value with nearby resale homes trading at substantially higher prices.

“We’re seeing a trend with families who are choosing to spend more and more time on the coast at various times throughout the year,” says Kolter Homes’ Vice President Steve Griggs.  “They see an opportunity for rental income during the high season and they take advantage of the rest of the year for family reunions, holiday celebrations and weekend retreats.” 

NatureWalk’s convenient location makes it a popular choice for visitors who choose a bicycle as their primary method of transportation. The community is also surrounded by Point Washington State Forest, making it a peaceful sanctuary for those seeking a more relaxed atmosphere.

Surprisingly enough at this price point, there is no compromise on the community amenities. The social centerpiece of NatureWalk is a fun-filled recreational center designed for today’s multi-generational families. The Gathering Place offers a family-style beach-entry pool, heated adult lap pool, children's pool, putting green, playground, a covered pavilion, BBQ grills, fire pit, hammocks and entertainment areas. While the bicycle remains the most popular method of transportation along the beach, residents of NatureWalk also appreciate the private NatureWalk beach shuttle that runs seasonally from the Gathering Place to Seagrove Beach.

NatureWalk offers four decorated models that are open daily, and Kolter Homes has recently introduced two new family-friendly designs that offer even more options to savvy homebuyers. The two-, three- and four-bedroom homes showcase some of today’s most sought after features including wrap-around covered porches, expansive designer ceilings, air-conditioned owners’ lockouts, delightful bunkrooms and other selections admired by area homebuyers.

A variety of spacious and well-designed floor plans are available to choose from and homes range in size from 1,800 to more than 2,900 square feet of air-conditioned living area. NatureWalk was developed and built by Kolter Homes, one of Florida’s most reputable and financially stable builders whose company motto “Creating Better Communities” is illustrated throughout the community.
