If the wind is blowing you to Northwest Florida, let me show you the coveted Real Estate that the city of Gulf Breeze, Florida has to offer!
It is difficult to write a complete article concerning Pensacola Florida Real Estate, without mentioning Real Estate in the charming and desirable area of Gulf Breeze, Florida located across Pensacola Bay and the City of Pensacola, Florida.
Gulf Breeze was originally a small bedroom community on the part of a peninsula that lies west of the Naval Live Oak Reserve. Over the years, it has expanded much farther east. The Naval Live Oak Reserve is a large green belt area that is part of the National Seashore, which is in turn, part of the National Park System. It creates the eastern boundary of what is now known by locals as Gulf Breeze “proper”, or in other words, the original core neighborhood of Gulf Breeze.
Gulf Breeze Proper was developed primarily in the 1950’s through the 1980’s. It includes some of the highest residential waterfront elevations in the State of Florida. There are elevated, multi-million dollar homes sitting atop high bluffs, overlooking picturesque bayous, surrounded by huge Spanish moss covered oaks. There are also lower-elevated beach level homes. Gulf Breeze has some, if not, the most desirable Real Estate in all of Northwest Florida. The interiors area of “the proper” is also highly regarded as a great place to live, for its laid back Florida lifestyle, sense of community and highly-rated Santa Rosa County Schools.
Even though the term “location, location, location” has become a real estate cliche, there may not be another area in Northwest Florida that it applies to better, than “the proper”. Because it is only three miles across the Pensacola Bay Bridge, you can be in downtown Pensacola in minutes, to enjoy a Blue Wahoos’ baseball game,a Pensacola Ice Flyers’ hockey game, or to eat at one of the many great restaurants including McGuire’s Irish Pub or Jerry’s Drive-In, which have both become Pensacola landmarks and tourist attractions. Or, if you prefer to go to the beach, you can be on Pensacola Beach in minutes as well, to visit the Pensacola Beach Fishing Pier, or Ft. Pickens, a pre-Civil War era fort that has been preserved as part of the National Seashore, or just enjoy some of the world’s whitest beaches.
