A private beach retreat is always a good idea.
Conveniently located within Panama City Beach, this dream house in the Martinique community is hidden away from the hustle and bustle of city living, yet still comes equipped with a variety of exciting communal amenities, including a community pool and playground, gazebos and an abundance of nature trails.
Katie Patronis of CENTURY 21 Ryan Realty has been the listing agent for many Martinique properties like 5330 Hopetown Lane. According to Patronis, the walkability of the neighborhood and overall ease of getting around helps attract buyers to the area.
“Location is a big part of why people seem to like Martinique,” explained Patronis. “It’s close to the marinas, it’s close to the restaurants, it’s close to shopping. Now they’ve put in a sidewalk all the way around Grand Lagoon, and you can bike to
St. Andrew’s State Park. The location is definitely a selling point.”
Location may key, but aesthetics are still crucial.
The grounds of Martinique are sprinkled with a variety of canopy trees, including oaks, magnolias and maple. Winding sidewalks and gathering points bring neighbors to nature and together, while tin roofs help to unify an array of custom-built homes that all exude a tastefully tropical feel.
The neighborhood itself is comprised of a variety of dwellers, including full-time residents, long-term renters and occasional vacationers. There are, however, restrictions against short-term leases — that fact, combined with the high architectural and landscaping standards plus the desirable location, is what Patronis said makes Martinique a top contender in today’s market.
“I believe it protects the value when you have those standards,” shared Patronis.
Though the exteriors of the homes embrace a similar craftsman-meets-beach cottage appearance, the interiors speak for themselves.
At 5330 Hopetown Lane that means clean, fresh lines with an abundance of natural light. The main living area features a beautiful seashell-encrusted fireplace, a mix of hardwood and stained concrete flooring and an open floor plan.
