NatureWalk at Watersound Origins Hosts Grand Opening

NatureWalk at Watersound Origins recently hosted a grand opening for VIP homebuyers.

Getting on the VIP list was as easy as registering online, where interested buyers could view floor plans and find out more about the community and the area. The Kolter Homes community has recently opened sales to the general public, hosting an official grand opening earlier in February.

“We are excited for these founding residents to experience and enjoy all NatureWalk will offer,” said Kolter Homes Community Director Todd Schermerhorn in a statement.

Homes for Sale in Watersound, FL

Lifestyle communities with resort-like amenities and low-maintenance living aren’t exactly easy to find in Florida’s northern panhandle. This provides homebuyers with an opportunity to enjoy nature, privacy, and untouched coastline. Watersound is about half an hour from Panama Beach and on the Gulf Coast.

“Our team, the professionals at St. Joe, and everyone involved put tremendous effort into bringing NatureWalk to the Watersound Origins community,” said Mr. Schermerhorn in a statement about the grand opening. “The experience Kolter has gained over the last six years in this market gives us a deep appreciation for what new home shoppers are looking for.”

NatureWalk at Watersound Origins offers 460 large, new construction single-family homes in a price range that begins in the High $500s and reaches the low $800s. There are 14 models available, ranging from the Amelia model, with 2,168 square feet to the Venice model, which has 4,236 square feet. Buyers can choose a floor plan with between two and five bedrooms, two and three-and-a-half bathrooms, and an attached two- or three-car garage.

Features in some homes include open floor plans with a spacious great room, flex space that can be used as a den, a home office, or an extra bedroom, and summer kitchens with an island and walk-in pantry.

NatureWalk homes will include private outdoor space, with views of the nature preserve and/or the water. All homes include Kolter-quality features and exceptional partner products with an on-site Design Gallery to select personalization and finish options. 

NatureWalk Grand Opening Highlights Amenities

Early buyers were impressed with the new construction home models and also with the amenities and lifestyle provided by the NatureWalk at Watersound Origins community. Residents will enjoy activities at the lakeside fitness center, a large outdoor pool with a sundeck that provides plenty of seating, and outdoor social spaces that include an event lawn. There are also tennis and pickleball courts planned.

Within the larger Watersound Origins community, homeowners can enjoy amenities such as the Origins Golf Course, Lake Powell, footgolf, and the fitness center. The Village Commons is an amenity center in the center of the community, including a clubhouse that hosts functions, events, and club meetings. There’s also the Watersound Cafe, a great place for residents to grab a morning coffee or a mid-afternoon snack.

NatureWalk at Watersound Origins is found right off U.S. Highway 98, less than two miles from Highway 30A, a scenic highway between Panama City and Destin.
