Looking for a new residence in the Santa Rosa Beach area? More than 14 brokers have gotten together to present Open Home Tours from 1-3 p.m. April 23. Houses being showcased range in price from $249,000 to $1.5 million and are located off Mack Bayou and East/West Bayou Roads.

Pick up a map of the homes on the Open Home Tours at 616 Mack Bayou Road before or during the tour.

Residents have quick access to local boat launches, Sandestin, Grand Boulevard, Walmart Supercenter and the Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast. For avid boaters, paddlers and fishermen, or those who enjoy the serenity of a home near the bay, Mack Bayou and East/West Hewett Bayou couldn't be a better choice. This area in North Santa Rosa Beach offers easy access to Hogtown Bayou and Choctawhatchee Bay. Beach access is also just minutes away to the Gulf of Mexico.

Several smaller neighborhoods make up this community of moderately priced homes, including Bayou Landing, Botany Bayou, Mack Bayou Pines and Mack Bayou Estates, Carson Oaks, and Driftwood Estates to name a few.

Further down the road, a secluded, waterfront paradise awaits. For anyone looking for a peaceful, beautiful view of the tranquil pristine waters of Hewett Bayou and Hewett Point flowing into the bay, this property would be an oasis. Topsail Walk off of East Hewett is half a mile to the bay and close to the exit to go to 30A. These are also close to the near expanded highway of 331 with quick access to Interstate 10.
