Quattuor: Latin for cardinal or four.


The 30A corridor of Florida’s panhandle is hot. No, not just because it’s July on the Gulf Coast. It’s because this area’s beach real estate market continues to set new design standards. It began with the picturesque ‘New Urban Development” of Seaside in the mid 1980s. Rosemary Beach quickly followed on those innovative urban planning coattails and now, Alys beach is set to be the new standard (we have four houses currently on the boards in Alys Beach alone.)

A few years ago, we designed a small development on the South side of 30 Right next door to Rosemary Beach. We named it “Quattuor”. It consists of four identical four bedroom houses, each with a pool, cabana and 2 car garage. The concept was the whole was more powerful than the individual – a quartet singing in unison sounds better than four people singing different songs. It’s perfect for a family compound or four inseparable families. The development is currently available for sale complete with a development order in place. Also, the development order is grandfathered in which allows this site more lenience than is normally available to projects in this area.

If you’re interested in this special development, contact Keith Flippo at the PPG Group at Keith Flippo at keith@theppg.net for details. You can view the complete sales listing here.
