On the shores of the Choctawhatchee Bay in Shalimar, in the gated community of Shalimar Pointe, lies an elegant 7,118-square-foot home that recently landed on the market — with a bang.
Listed for $5,222,000 with Needa Brennan of Coldwell Banker Realty Destin, the property is the second highest-priced active listing in the Fort Walton Beach region, surpassed only by a $6.5 million Yacht Club Dr. property.
That’s quite high for an area that commands median sale prices of around $400,000, so we just had to take a closer look to see what $5+ million buys you in this stretch of the Florida Panhandle. And we weren’t left disappointed.

- Bedrooms: 4
- Baths: 4.5
- Square footage: 7,118 sq. ft.
