    You know, one of the things I love about South Walton is the variety and oddities. Every time I come down here I drive around looking at everything that's been built in the past six months. It's so much more fun than Columbus, OH where virtually all of the housing looks pretty much the same,...very boring. Our house here in Columbus is pretty typical, inside and out, very conservative, nice but sort of dull. But, our house at the beach is sort of like the leaning tower of Pisa and filled with flamingos and color. It's known as Paradise Romantica and you can find pictures at www.GarrettRealty.com. It's where we let our hair down, relax and have fun. No one needs a beach house, much less a beach mansion, but it sure makes life interesting and more fun. Personally, I love the photos from above the Hilton House that show it's true design, "Winged Dove" and I also find the juxtapostion of the Georgian Mansion and the ultra modern Hilton house amusing. I, for one, love that people are able to express themselves here and hope that never changes.

    Shelly,

    Right you are, but we have so many different types of neighborhoods to choose from.

    It is just an incredible house, so before its time.

    Bringing this post back from the dead but...

    I visited here for my 3rd time this past may and drove by this house on the way to my condo. I was amazed, being an architecture student here in houston, I had to know more about the house. So I approached it from a beach one day and got as close as I was allowed to but still wasn't happy. So I emailed Mr. Dyson (the architect) and he was happy enough to send me more pictures. This is all I have at my work computer, but there's more at home.

    That outdoor room in the last photo looks really cool.

    I wonder how much Charlie would pay me to wash his windows everyday?

    As far as I'm concerned yes, they are current. You can also see in the first pic that there is now a wall built around the property. I had asked why the project was taking so long, but he never gave me an answer.

    Because he would be out of a job if he did finish it...that's why.

    Originally, I though this house was wierd. But as they started finishing it, it really started to be amazing. PLEASE let me know if they ever open it for tours! I bet it is incredible in person!

    All the pictures I've posted are from the end of May '07. The Georgian next door was being re-done due to mold.

    I found this on Google Earth and couldnt decide if it looked like a seagull or a "winged" moon. But I have heard it has no corners because "bad spirits" couldnt get out if there were corners. :dunno: I could only think that this was going to be another "Winchester House".

    I was told this house was designed (inspired) by the Nautilis of 10,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Jules Verne) fame, and is meant to look like that from out in the Gulf.

    I guess with that size and architecture, it can inspire many comparisons.

    There is significant change on that huge carriage/guest house they are building right beside it. I wonder if Charlie needs a gardner?
