    This is the neighborhood with the huge Grotto pool.

    Be interesting to hear what everyone thinks about this development. I don't see many postings on this one.

    Thx.

    I don't know anything about it. Do you have a link? Is it gonna be a high-rise next door to my house with people staring down at me in my private pool from their 20th floor balconies which would mean no more skinny dipping unless I want to go to jail?

    I think you're ok with skinny dipping runner, but only if you invite me!
    No, it's not a condo development, it's a neighborhhod with single family residences, mostly lots unsold at this point. Has a huge pool that looks like the Flintstones live there.
    Here's a link: http://www.nfcdestin.com/cypressbreeze.asp

    Thx.

    I seem to remember it being discussed a long while back, and it was mentioned that the pool was awesome and that the development seemed to be very nice. The area of concern that came up was that the ground, while not technically wetlands, was rather damp before the development went in, so I'd do a driveby or two of the property after one of those 4-6 inches of rain in a day events and make sure there isn't standing water in those conditions.

    I do remember that the first part of that development flooded pretty easily a few years ago. They might have fixed that problem. I did drive through the back part of the development a few months ago and it seemed a little wet after the rain. There are quite a few houses going in there. The architecture on some of them seems a little odd to me, but everyone has different taste.

    There appears to be a large area of wetlands immediately adjacent/to the south of the development judging by aerial photography.

    The developers describe the water amenity (read: Pool) as "classic Roman architecture"--however, after viewing the artist's rendering, I think "Flintstone-esque" is closer to the mark.

    Cypress trees in our area grow in marshes, wetlands, rivers, lakes, ponds and swamps.

    Thanks SJ, it really does look like the Flintstones live there.

    I agree. Maybe the Roman thing which someone mentioned is regarding the round columns, :idontno: or the pool in general (Roman Baths). It may look more rock like when they get the multiple waterfalls going.

    It looks like a waterpark. At a Six Flags or something similar.

    As a parent, all I am seeing are all the opportunities for my kids to split their heads open.

    My guess is that it looked good on paper. :idontno: No disrespect or hard feeling but that does not look attractive to me. Maybe it looks better in person? :confused:

    BTW, is Cypress Breeze near Cypress Dunes? Or do they just share a word in their name? :idontno:

    The two developments are separated by about 4 miles. There are still a few Cypress trees in both developments, but a much nicer mini Cypress Swamp at Cypress Dunes.

    Regarding CB looking better in person, what you see is what you get. Some people who like the idea of living at Big Kahunas may like Cypress Breeze.

    I understand the next development on the books will have a "Jetsons" theme (Ray to go Rummell!). :rofl:
