Real Estate at Bluewater Bay
Bluewater Bay is a 2,000-acre, 3,500 home residential community on the Choctawhatchee Bay and across the Mid-Bay Bridge from Destin, FL. The community was planned in the late 1970s and most of its infrastructure was built in the late ’70s and early ’80s. Bluewater Bay was planned for preservation of lots of trees, open space, and low traffic residential streets. With a variety of home choices plus a full amenity package that includes Tennis, Swimming Pools, Golf and Marina, Bluewater Bay has continued to be a premier community for almost 40 years.
The Bluewater Bay community consists of a variety of housing within multiple gated communities, ungated HOA communities and non-HOA communities. Most homes have lovely green spaces and mature trees that were incorporated into the original concept of the Bluewater Bay development. Likewise, many homes back to lakes, the golf course or the Choctawhatchee Bay.

New Home Construction in Bluewater Bay
There are few lots still available from the original plat that defined Bluewater Bay.
There are plans to redeveloped land that until recently made up 18 holes of a 36 hole golf course at Bluewater Bay. This redevelopment will be designed and constructed by Randy Wise Homes, a long-term, reputable builder in our area. The members of the development company have said that the land will be repurposed not only for new home subdivisions but also for adding amenities such as playgrounds, dog parks, dedicated off road jogging and bike trials, community activity areas, perhaps even community gardens.

The land that once served as the golf course driving range, across Bluewater Bay Blvd from the Golf Club, along with a portion of an adjoining fairway to the east of it, is designated for redevelopment as Addie’s Place. Infrastructure is currently under construction.

In 2019, the 9 holes making up the Lakes Course were closed. Redevelopment plans are in the works for holes 5,6 and 8:

The plan includes 150,000 sq ft of assisted living housing, 64,000 sq ft of independent living housing and 15 new homes. Read the Agreement
