Just East of Big Lagoon State Park sits a neighborhood that has history and a bright future. The sought-after Grande Lagoon neighborhood sits just off Gulf Beach Highway and overlooks Big Lagoon. Some homes are directly on the sandy beaches of Big Lagoon and overlook Johnson’s Beach (part of Gulf Islands National Seashore). Many homes are on small lakes and canals that weave through the neighborhood. Breathtaking sunrise views and splendid sunsets are commonplace in this slice of paradise!
There is great variety in architectural styles and ages of the homes in Grande Lagoon. This just adds to the charm of the beachside community. This also allows home buyers at all price points to own in this fabulous neighborhood. The older homes are typically very well maintained. The remaining empty lots are disappearing as beautiful and modern coastal homes are built.
For an insanely low HOA fee, homeowners enjoy significant neighborhood amenities. The residents and their guests enjoy a private beach and pier on Big Lagoon. This provides a place to kayak, paddleboard, fish, swim, and just hang out without having to fight the crowds at the nearby public beaches. There are two tennis courts and a playground. Many homeowners own golf carts to get around the neighborhood and enjoy these amenities. The homeowner’s association also maintains and beautifies the lakes and traffic islands.
Southwest Pensacola has a casual, laid-back style with a strong sense of community. This neighborhood is no exception. These homeowners are a friendly, welcoming group made up of original owners and new faces. Homes with beach access are in limited supply; hence their value rarely decreases. It would be hard to go wrong with the purchase of any home in Grande Lagoon. See more about Grande Lagoon homes for sale.
