A Luxury Villa in Miramar Beach

For this issue, we searched for a beautiful home with a beautiful bar. 364 Walton Way in Miramar Beach was an easy choice bringing the easy atmosphere of a neighborhood pub into a home game room. The bar sits inside a luxury villa with a Mediterranean style. This waterfront retreat showcases artisanship. In this article, owner Yon Burton gives us a glimpse into her sprawling bayside home. Its restful atmosphere inside is reinforced by over an acre of landscaping that accents native plantings with lush grass, winding walkways, and a dock reaching out over the Choctawhatchee Bay.

A custom stonework fountain graces the front of the home. Concentric oval walls hold crystal clear water and statuary. Mature olive trees complete the Mediterranean feel. Entering the home, a grand staircase and a clear view straight through to the bay beyond takes the viewer's breath away.

This property has been carefully designed to capture the magical sunrises and sunsets on Choctawhatchee Bay. Extensively remodeled about 15 years ago, it has expanded to a sprawling 8,500 square feet of living area. This includes a closed in patio that calls to visitors to gather around for barbecue or to chat amiably over a glass of wine from the patio’s chiller. Their answer to that call is rewarded with a view of an expanse of water alive with dolphins, heron, jumping fish, and a visiting fish hawk. Another expansion is a sitting area with a view in the primary suite.

The bar and game room is situated upstairs and showcases rich woodwork preserved with perfect satin finishes. Details are hand-carved into a well-appointed bar. Each bar stool is backed by a fabric scene of a pool game from another era, inviting visitors to a friendly game of pool and heightening the overall impression of luxury. The ample game room is vast enough for lush seating to fit easily and the windows offer pleasing views.

Though many features remain, we’ll end on the aquamarine pool, complete with jacuzzi. It is surrounded by careful marble flooring and pedestals, complementary decor, and the home’s grand brickwork. Large openings in the brickwork frame the natural scenery beyond. The level of opulence in this home truly transports a person to another place and time.
