Wild Heron 1141 Turtleback Trail as Tracy’s Top Luxury Pick October 4 2010

Rarely do I step outside of my Scenic 30 & Point Washington bubble to find a luxury pick. The truth be told, I simply don’t have to. With so many creative minds and skilled hands living and working along 30A, our area boasts a plethora of unique communities that exhibit true luxury. For one of my “finds” I was enthralled with an estate in Pensacola and Craig just about had a heart attack. “You found something outside of 30-A?”. “It can happen”, I said. And so it has again, but this time it was a traditional coastal craftsman masterpiece in Wild Heron that stole my heart.

This Estate Home in Wild Heron rests beneath a 100 year old Magnolia whose ancient boughs shade a generous patio with a deluxe outdoor granite kitchen and granite capped columns on the spacious porch and screened porch. The paved patio features an Arts & Crafts granite and stone water feature and stunning landscape lighting. Richly appointed details are found in both the exterior and interior of this signature Craftsman-style residence lending to indoor/outdoor entertaining that flows seamlessly. Situated in the center of 3+ acres of "Green Conservation Area" with a large manicured and stocked lake in front and more than 100 feet of natural preserve behind, makes this private residence one of the most desirable estate home-sites within its community. This magnificent home is a wonderful blend of natural materials including kiln dried wood and cedar shake, huge planks of mahogany floors and doors, tasteful slate floors, rare and exquisite granite, frameless glass enclosures and travertine marble, and quaint pathways. It is apparent when you first approach this house that only the best materials were used during the construction. Built with Green Construction Technology, the home has a reflective UV barrier beneath the shakes to insulate and cut heat and A/C costs and I know we would all rather spend our money on more exciting items then our utility bills. A beautiful mahogany and beveled glass front door with side lights welcomes you in to this masterpiece. The custom hand crafted Arts and Crafts light fixtures, huge work efficient gourmet kitchen with its large pantry and top of the line appliances are also sure to take your breath away. This kitchen actually put me in the mood to bake something sumptuous. The master suite has two HUGE walk-in closets with granite built-ins, one of which is cedar lined. The list of exquisite features goes on and on.

Now, if you haven’t driven through Wild Heron lately you really should. This premier gulf-coast community, is nestled among pines and freshwater lakes.

The community of Wild Heron embodies understated elegance that can compare to anything the discriminating buyer is accustomed to.
