Draper Lake is a unique geographical feature, a coastal lake that shares a recurring connection with the Gulf, complementing the natural serenity of the majestic woods that wind their way through Draper Lake Coastal Village – setting it apart as a distinctive, gated community.
Sprinkled throughout Draper Lake Coastal Village, these green spaces allow residents to enjoy peaceful moments with family and friends. Planned as part of the original development, they are another feature that provide solitude and tranquility only steps from the amenities of scenic 30A, Santa Rosa Beach and the surrounding communities in Walton County.
Two swimming pools, one in each peninsula of Draper Lake Coastal Village, provide enjoyment for residents who want to swim laps or simply enjoy the coolness of the water on a warm, sunny day. Enclosed within gated, rustic wooden fences, covered pavilions allow families to enjoy their time and meet their neighbors.
These natural wood bridges are the lifeline connecting the eastern and western peninsulas of Draper Lake Coastal Village. They provide a relaxed pathway across the quiet waters of Draper Lake, connected via winding nature and hiking trails, set amidst the 100 feet of lake front property throughout the Village that is protected from development – allowing wildlife and residents to enjoy together.
Soaring almost 50 feet into the gulf coast’s blue sky, this unique wooden tower provides a panoramic view of Draper Lake, the Gulf and it’s pristine, white sand that sits alongside as it fades into the distance, and the surrounding beauty along scenic 30A
THE BOAT HOUSES
Two boat houses give residents the opportunity to store kayaks and paddleboards in a convenient and secure way at water’s edge. They also provide a setting for small gatherings – as the sun rises or sets – or to simply enjoy the warm breezes floating across Draper Lake.
THE PRIVATE BEACH CABANA
Draper Lake Coastal Village offers a perfect combination of gulf and lakefront living. Looking to spend a day at the beach? No problem. A short walk, bike ride, or car ride takes you to Gulfview Heights Regional Beach Access with the owner’s private beach cabana just a block away. The owner’s cabana has plenty of parking, restrooms, and a shower. Some neighbors even enjoy the back green space for family fun and a place to exercise their four-legged friends!
THE BUTTERFLY GARDEN
Located on the eastern peninsula of Draper Lake Coastal Village, you can enjoy a picnic lunch and photo opportunity on the green space overlooking the majestic views of Draper Lake and the Gulf of Mexico. This is a picture-perfect place to celebrate special occasions and family weddings. Lawn games can be enjoyed by the community and the garden serves as a perfect meeting place for owners to socialize. Early morning affords the opportunity to practice quiet meditation or yoga… and, on the lucky occasion, be joined by beautiful butterflies!
