SoWal Style - Craftsman Bungalow Perfection in Wild Heron

January 20, 2020 by SoWal Staff

People are usually surprised to find inside the gates of Wild Heron a community full of fine examples of Craftsman-style architecture.

In the early years of the 20th century, the architectural firm of Greene and Greene designed what would later be known as quintessential Craftsman-style architecture. The firm was steeped in the Art & Crafts movement and influenced by existing California board and shingle buildings. The Craftsman style is defined by low-pitch gable roofs with broad eaves, large front porches, and exposed wooden structural elements.

Wild Heron is on the north shore of Lake Powell at the eastern edge of South Walton. Surrounded by the world-renowned Sharks Tooth Golf Course and Lake Powell, the community is resort-living defined – without the hustle and bustle that is created by short term rentals.

1214 West Lakewalk was built by one of the most highly regarded builders in Northwest Florida. The builder delivered finishes you would expect from an industry leader, including a window and door package from E.F. San Juan.

This 'true to craftsman style' bungalow home is a flip-flop walk to extraordinary amenities including a boathouse to store your water vessels, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a spacious pool and the largest coastal dune lake in Northwest Florida. You can paddle to the Gulf of Mexico, join the private golf club or simply enjoy the lush landscape of Wild Heron. While you can easily achieve a quiet resort-lifestyle in Wild Heron, you are a quick trip from restaurants, shopping and all the buzz of 30A and Panama City Beach.
