    According to waltonpa.com they paid $2,500,000 in March of 2004. Not a bad return if they get anything close to their asking price. It is a large lot, .89 acres.

    Totally awesome. Does anybody know what the condition was before the renovations and addition (doubled the Sq Ft). What a view and the owner should be proud of the place and the price shows that they are!!! :clap_1:

    The lot next to it is for sale for $3.5 Mil, and the one behind it for $2.5 MIL. They were probably part of the parcel, but were not included in the 2004 sale.

    It was on the market for quite awhile before that.

    Re: A new record price for me

    With that type of investment, how would it fare during a Cat 1 hurricane or tropical depression? Would it depend on the storm surge?

    It's been through many storms. They've lost some dune and could lose more from future storms if they came in the near future. The house itself is very high.

    Saw a flier at the Starbucks on a gulf front home at Rosemary Beach. They are probably still there by the side window.

    Sounded like a nice house, but just an outside shot.

    $7,999,900

    I am not sure what it says when you need to advertise a house like that in Startbucks :blink:

    Re: A new record price for me

    This is by far the nicest house at Grayton and has an unequalled view. It also has the advantage of a high, flat dune in an area where the storm surge tends to go through in two forks just to the east of the house. It has weathered a number of storms well. The house needed work before it was purchased by the present owners. They bought T-Time and the lot next door, where they built a new luxury home. I don't know how reasonable that selling price is, but Firenze (off-white house with dark blue trim, lots of weddings house) is also for sale and isn't nearly as desirable a location as the former T-Time is.

    Coastal Properties has listings for both of these properties. The owner of Coastal Properties Real Estate (located in the former building that housed House of Art) is the daughter of the previous owner of T-Time and the lot. She will have all the scoop on the property.

    Even if I got it for 1.5 mil - I would have to sell it because I couldn't afford the taxes and insurance on it!! I would have to be a flipper

    It is Grayton Coast Properties - Coastal Properties is a different company.

    I like the spot Firenze is in - you can see the whole town, public beach, and State Park:

    Re: A new record price for me

    Ain't it the truth :sosad: . I think at $1.5Mil that would be around $16,000 to $18,000 / year for taxes :shock:
