Draper Lake Coastal Village
This beautiful community is a private gated development comprised of two magnificent wooded peninsulas separated by a tributary to Draper Lake. Draper Lake is one of several very special coastal dune lakes found along the Florida Panhandle. They are considered the Jewels of the Florida Emerald Coast. The lake fronts the Gulf of Mexico beach and is connected to the Gulf through a dune opening. The community land located within the first 100 feet from the lake’s edge is protected from development, providing pedestrian access to the water through winding nature and hiking trails. This plan was created in partnership with Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company.
Draper Lake boasts a unique natural environment featuring a protected ecosystem harboring unique flora, fauna, and marine life, surrounding live oaks and pine forests, and an immediate proximity to the Gulf of Mexico. This single family residential community of 96 lots includes two community pools, boat houses that provide access to the coastal dune lake and the Gulf, and a 48 foot observation tower. Pedestrian trails provide a continuous link to the greenway system running through the property.
