Just outside of Seaside, one of 30A's many popular New-Urbanist communities.

Welcome to Watercolor

Walton County's WaterColor

Just outside of Seaside, one of 30A's many popular New-Urbanist communities, WaterColor was designed by internationally renowned architecture and urban design companies Cooper, Robertson & Partners and Urban Design Associates with the foresight of The St. Joe Company, one of the leading landowners in the state of Florida, helming the project. Inspired by the vernacular architecture style of Southern wood houses, the homes of WaterColor are distinguishable by their wraparound and/or screened porches, wood columns/siding and their metal roofs with deep overhangs. One part Inn & Resort, one part residential community, WaterColor was designed to replicate the timeless feel of a small town while providing a legitimate Florida resort experience.

The Luxury Beach Lifestyle

Sitting alongside Florida's Emerald Coast, stuck in the middle with Seaside and Grayton Beach, the lavish resort community of WaterColor happens to be blessed with another body of water worthy of its own hashtags and online following, Western Lake. A massive dune lake, rentable kayaks and paddleboards make it a must-visit destination even for those without their own toys. Western Lake makes WaterColor stand out in an area with as many unique communities as 30A has, but that isn't where their distinctions end. Miles of trails to hike, tennis courts, several pools, fishing spots, pristine beach and several facilities offering multiple pools, such as the WaterColor Beach Club and Camp WaterColor. For the golfer in your family, only 9 miles away is Travel + Leisure's "Course of the Millennium", Camp Creek Golf Club. If all of this is something you'd need to take in on a daily basis as opposed to just on vacation, The Park District was designed with you in mind with a focus on primary residence and second home properties that are exclusively non-rentalable.

Eat. Sleep. Explore. Drink. Relax.

Life in WaterColor is relaxed, there's no doubt about it. When residents and visitors aren't availing themselves on sandy beach, exploring the plentiful trails and dunes or hitting the nearby links, the shopping in WaterColor will please Him, Her and the kids. Old Florida Outfitters is a high end boutique and fishing supply shop, while the excellent one-two combination of The Candy Bar and its next door neighbor, part restaurant, part retail wine shop The Wine Bar supply their patrons with exquisitely delicious treats for those who enjoy a good meal, drink or sugar rush. The latter of the two is one of three locations of wine bar and restaurant, but while the locations in Destin and Sandestin's Grand Boulevard provide a more fine dining experience, WaterColor's The Wine Bar serves up its gourmet dishes in a more casual, beach appropriate setting. This is reminiscent not just of the other top-quality culinary options within WaterColor, such as The Gathering Spot or FOOW (Fish Out Of Water), but of the community in general; in WaterColor, you will find a chic, unpretentious lifestyle full of sunny days, nights by the bonfire, and a commitment to comfortability.
