Nestled between the shores of Florida’s fabled Emerald Coast and the banks of a rare coastal dune lake (Western Lake) is a 499-acre southern coastal resort and residential beach community that brings the best of Florida and Southern hospitality to your family. Pathways and parks meander from the Gulf to the lake around brick-paved streets, water gardens, well-appointed cottages, homes, and residences. With over half of the community dedicated to green space, the habitat is natural.
WaterColor was master-planned by acclaimed architect, Jaquelin Robertson, on land held by the St Joe Company since 1927. WaterColor, FL boasts 1,140 custom-built residences, home sites, and multi-family dwellings.
Sitting on your front porch, gazing at the classic Southern homes around you and the Gulf of Mexico stretching off into the distance, it’s not difficult to marvel at the little details that must have come together to make this place so special.
The neighborhoods of WaterColor, one of the newer of 30-A’s beach communities, are a testimony to southern coastal architecture, defined by color palette and architectural style. Five public parks welcome residents and guests to relax outside, while a large outdoor amphitheater will serve as the setting for concerts and festivals at Western Lake. Restaurants for casual or elegant dining, a gourmet cheese and wine market, pools, a boathouse, and a traditional southern cutting garden create an inviting atmosphere.
Except for the cutting garden in Cerulean Park, all landscaping at WaterColor is native to Florida’s Panhandle, and homeowners are encouraged to continue the tradition.
