Blue Marlin Realty Group is proud to feature the newest townhome community, “Destin Oaks,” coming to Destin, Fla., in 2015. The premier townhome project is the brainchild of Blue Marlin’s Broker Associate and Destination Builders Inc., President John Cunningham.

Having both built and sold real estate in and around Destin, Cunningham has lived through the cyclical nature of the market.

“We have seen it all. From watching the market slow to an all-time low, to now having a strong demand in real estate and new construction in our area. It’s very encouraging to me not only as a Realtor, but also as a builder,” Cunningham explained.

As a company, Destination Builders Inc. saw a serious need for a community like Destin Oaks in the area.  There is a lack of new construction at this price point and Cunningham and his team are excited to be a part of developing such. 

“There is nothing new available in Destin, under $300,000 right now. We think the demand is there for buyers at this price point to be able to get into the city of Destin,” he said.

Although Destination Builders had looked at purchasing the land in the past, Cunningham is no stranger to the 5-plus acre property located on Airport Road. Formerly home to the Destin Racquet Club, Cunningham’s mother managed the Racquet Club for a little more than 10 years while he was growing up in the local area.

The project will have 60 premium townhomes available with three different, three bedroom plans with the options of an office, garage, or game room, ranging in size from 2,000 to 2,300 square feet. Each townhome includes an open main living level with large kitchen, spacious bedrooms, and access to the community’s amenities including clubhouse, pool and common areas. The community is also conveniently located near area shopping, golf and attractions. The townhomes’ base price will begin in the high $200k’s.

Destination Builders recently broke ground and began the community’s initial infrastructure. After receiving appropriate permitting from the city, Destin Oaks is anticipated to have units available to move in, Spring of 2015.  Those interested in learning more or setting up a viewing during construction can contact John Cunningham directly at 850-246-5646.
