Kolter Homes Announces Successful Opening of NatureWalk at Watersound Origins


Kolter Homes, a leader in developing master-planned communities in the Southeast, reported 55 sales generated during the VIP Preview of its latest new home community in Walton County. Interested home shoppers who registered as a VIP on Kolter Homes’ interest list were invited to preview NatureWalk at the Watersound Origins® community for a two-week period beginning in late December. Of those who visited, over 50 VIPs purchased a new home in this gated community prior to the official public opening scheduled for this month. The property is located within the Watersound Origins community by The St. Joe Company, directly off U.S. Hwy. 98, less than two miles from the famed Scenic Highway 30A corridor between Panama City and Destin.

“Our team, the professionals at St. Joe, and everyone involved put tremendous effort into bringing NatureWalk to the Watersound Origins community,” said Kolter Homes Community Director Todd Schermerhorn. “The experience Kolter has gained over the last six years in this market gives us a deep appreciation for what new home shoppers are looking for. We are excited for these founding residents to experience and enjoy all NatureWalk will offer.”

St. Joe officials see the addition of NatureWalk as a valuable complement to the Watersound Origins community. “The Watersound Origins community has been a highly sought-after neighborhood for a wide variety of homebuyers,” said Bridget Precise, Senior Vice President of Residential Real Estate for The St. Joe Company. “NatureWalk and the homes that are being built by Kolter Homes will provide another option for those looking to move into a great new home and experience the lifestyle of the Watersound Origins community.”

Recreation and lifestyle plans for this new community include a resident-exclusive social center with fitness center, pool, tennis, pickleball, event lawn and more. NatureWalk residents also have access to the Watersound Origins community’s amenities including Origins Golf Course, Lake Powell and fitness facilities.

A total of roughly 460 new homes are planned to be built within the gates of NatureWalk. There are fourteen fresh floor plan designs to choose from, ranging from 2- to 5-bedrooms and priced from the $400s. NatureWalk homesites offer either preserve and/or water views to maximize comfortable backyard living. All homes include Kolter-quality features and exceptional partner products with an on-site Design Gallery to select personalization and finish options. To learn more visit NaturewalkWatersound.com.
