A La Paix condos in Seacrest Flroida

The name translates to "at peace" in the Creole language, and that's how you'll feel the minute you enter this upscale, four-unit gated development. Ideally situated on the southeastern boundary of Seacrest Beach, this graceful group of airy three-story villas nestles right alongside the western edge of Rosemary Beach.

Built in 2006, the units in this upscale development go from A1 to A4. A privately gated courtyard calmed by the splash of a soothing fountain welcomes resident and visitor alike into each open-plan unit. Once you're inside, the beadboard ceilings, rich interior finishes, glowing fireplace and floors of solid heartwood pine will put you right at ease in the 2,150-square-foot, open-plan unit.

The second floor greets you with a living room and eating area alongside a modern gourmet kitchen featuring granite counter tops, Wolf stainless appliances and sub-zero refrigerator. Travel up one flight and you'll find three bedrooms, each with private bath, gracing the unit's third story. An electronic dumbwaiter connects the living area to the two-car garage to make quick work of transporting laundry and sundry items between floors.

Residents of A La Paix can easily access all the amenities at Seacrest Beach, and its 12,000-square-foot lagoon-style swimming pool will provide welcome respite on any warm day. If you prefer to do your swimming in the Gulf, gates to the rear will take you straight to the beach access trail. Walking isn't required, though, since a tram is available for anyone who'd rather reach the sands in style.
