Called the “Masterpiece on the Bay,” the long-standing plantation is an exclusive, gated property in Destin filled with lush vegetation, marshes, wildlife and tranquil views of the bay. Proudly part of Coleman and Mattie Kelly’s land and legacy, Kelly Plantation is rich with history and deeply entwined with Destin’s founding families.
While its past provides a strong foundation, the property is a true modern luxury with its balance of natural solitude, a sporty pace, proximity to everyday activity and scenic views in every direction. Located directly on the Choctawhatchee Bay, many of Kelly Plantation’s 900 acres are maintained green spaces, while the nine neighborhoods within include biking/jogging trails, cozy parks and plenty of space to relax. The Plantations 18 hole golf course is the center of the property, designed by Fred Couples and Gene Bates as one of the area’s most environmentally sensitive and visually impressive golf courses. The course encompasses over 7000 yards with many of those along the water’s edge as well as lakes and water features along the course.
In addition to golf, Kelly Plantation boasts tennis courts, a basketball court, doggie park, fitness center, fishing club, garden club, and, of course, a majestic community pool. With a focus on social activities, the neighborhood provides plenty of opportunity for involvement for those who like to get together on occasion.
This exclusive community is located 13 miles west of the Beaches of South Walton and Scenic Hwy 30A and 46 miles west of Panama City Beach. Kelly Plantation consists of single family homes and home sites as well as bay front condominiums.
