Rosemary Beach is an extraordinary place. Located seven miles east of critically-acclaimed Seaside, Florida, the resort town of Rosemary Beach is nestled between Highway 98 and Scenic Route 30A on northwest Florida’s panhandle, along the Gulf Coast.Rosemary Beach was established in 1995 by town developer Patrick Bienvenue (Rosemary Beach Land Company) and planning pioneers Andres Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk. Keeping the local homeowner and vacation home renters in mind, their vision was to create a town with walkable neighborhoods and a strong sense of community. The 107-acre development, which includes 2,300 feet of breathtakingly beautiful white beaches along the Gulf of Mexico, is based on the land use concept of New Urbanism, incorporating architectural influences from around the world and throughout the centuries.The design team wanted to create a town that was reminiscent of long ago, when people knew each other and could easily walk to local shops, restaurants, galleries and a variety of housing options. The vision, quite revolutionary for the time, encouraged pedestrian traffic, community interaction and connection between neighbors while relying on strict urban code and regulations to ensure architectural beauty and consistency.The result is a cohesive, unique town, with an intricate patchwork of different types of houses and custom homes built to suit a wide range of individual tastes. There are twelve basic house types that are architecturally distinct, custom-designed, and built to reflect each owner’s tastes, needs and lifestyles.Even though there is variety in the architecture, there is still a definite cohesiveness. The use of authentic construction materials and techniques are quite fitting for the buildings in this coastal environment. Homes are finished with wood siding, cedar shingle or stucco with metal or shingle-shake roofing. Houses are finished with rich, natural-tones that distinguish the houses but blend in well. Porches are well-shaded by deep, overhanging eaves and high ceilings draw breezes throughout the home. Gardens, fountain-filled courtyards and porches become outdoor living spaces.Exclusive 30A offers splendid luxury vacation home rentals in Rosemary Beach, beautifully furnished and unparalleled in sophistication and comfort.
